Johnny Was A Pyro (Patty Larkin)

Johnny was a Pyro by Patty Larkin Johnny Was A Pyro and he acted like a baby Wanted all of this attention I couldn't give Drink a bottle of hard stuff, say I love you now save me Just a big guy with a big sense of sin And the neighbor down the block in his underwear and socks Keeping track of the losses and wins With his wife hanging out the window wondering which way the wind blows As I fumble the key in the lock again, singing Oh me What am I doing with this ring on my hand Oh me If this is the good life who's choosin it Oh me Mama's best woman and daddy's best man Oh me I'm highly in danger of losin it Johnny Was A Pyro and he acted like a baby Got a phone call from wild almost every night Well he loved me but he really loved looking past me to the ladies He was much too good looking for his height We were a couple of kis crawling out of the crib Talking about the positives and the negatives of wine Living our lives just like Hemingway did But he was lucky, he was a genius most of the time Oh me What am I doing with this ring on my hand Oh me If this is the good life who's choosin it Oh me Mama's best woman and daddy's best man Oh me I'm highly in danger of losin it He was sideswiped by the clue bus when it came to talking two of us And the while thing ended ugly I guess You can put your cards out on the table but if nobody wants to play Well, you haven't got a game you've got a mess I was looking at the judge leaning on my lawyer like a crutch And the judge said what happened and why I said, Johnny Was A Pyro and he acted like a baby Now there's nothing like the sound of good bye Oh me What am I doing with this ring on my hand Oh me If this is the good life who's choosin it Oh me Mama's best woman and daddy's best man Oh me I'm highly in danger of losin it
