Lyrics:Johnny was bad, even as a child everybody could tell
Everyone said if you don't get
straight
You'll surely go to hell

But johnny didn't care
He was an outlaw by the
time that he was
Ten years old
He didn't wanna do what he was told
Just a prankster,
juvenile gangster

His teachers didn't understand
They kicked him out of school
At a
tender early age
Just because he didn't want to learn things
(had other interests)
He
liked to burn things

The lady down the block
She had a radio that johnny wanted oh so
bad
So he took it the first chance he had
Then he shot her in the leg
And this is what
she said
Only a lad
You really can't blame him
Only a lad
Society made him
Only
a lad
He's our responsibility
Only a lad
He really couldn't help it
Only a
lad
He didn't want to do it
Only a lad
He's underprivileged and abused
Perhaps a
little bit confused




His parents gave up they couldn't influence his
attitude
Nobody could help
The little man had no gratitude

And when he stole the
care
Nobody dreamed that he would
Try to take it so far
He didn't mean to hit the poor
man
Who had to go and die
It made the judge cry

Only a lad
He really couldn't
help it
Only a lad
He didn't want to do it
Only a lad
He's underprivileged and
abused
Perhaps a little bit confused

It's not his fault that he can't believe
It's
not his fault that he can't behave
Society made him go astray
Perhaps if we're nice he'll go
away
Perhaps he'll go away
He'll go away

(repeat chorus)
