Skip de skip, up the road
Off to school we go
Don’t you be a bad boy Johnny
Don’t you slip up
Or play the fool
Oh no Ma, oh no Da,
I’ll be your golden boy
I will obey every golden rule
Get told by the teacher
Not to day-dream
Told by my mother:

Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good! Be good (Johnny)!
Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good (Johnny)!
Be good! Be good!

Are you going to play football this year, John?
Na!
Oh, well you must be going to play cricket this year then,
Are you Johnny?
Na! Na! Na!
Boy, you sure are a funny kid, Johnny, but I like you!
So tell me, what kind of a boy are you, Johnny?

I only like dreaming
All the day long
Where no one is screaming…

Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good be good (Johnny)!
Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Be good! Be good! Be good!
Johnny!
