Shooting Star
Johnny was a schoolboy when he heard his first Beatles song
Love Me Do, I think it was, from there it didn't take him long
Got himself a guitar, used to play every night
Now he's in a rock and roll outfit and everything's allright
Don't you know

Johnny told his mama, "Hey, Mama I'm goin' away
I'm gonna hit the big time, gonna be a big star some day"
Mama came to the door with a teardrop in her eye
Johnny said, "Don't cry Mama, smile and wave goodbye"

Don't you know
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
And all the world will love you just as long, as long as you are

Johnny made a record, went straight up to number one
Suddenly everyone loved to hear him sing his song
Watching the world go by, sometimes it can go so fast
Johnny looked around him and said, "Damn I made the big time at last"

Don't you know
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
And all the world will love you just as long, as long as you are
A shooting star. . .

Johnny died one night, died in his bed
Bottle o' whiskey, sleeping tablets by his head
Johnny's life passed him by like a warm summer day
And if you listen to the wind, you can still hear him play

Don't you know
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
And all the world will love you just as long, as long as you are
A shooting star. . .

JOHN, ELTON / OSBORNE, GARY ANTHONY
