Johnny come lately on a Saturday night
Singin' how-de-do
Backstreet boogie in the house of delight
Where they steal the show
The money come sour but the ladies are sweet
And it's a love affair
Whole place rockin', people stompin' their feet
When the gang's all there
He gets his lovin' every night for free
He's out there rockin' like you wouldn't believe
I sing na na na na na
Na na na na na
Johnny liked to gamble with his lady Louise
She was a blackjack deuces are wild
He got to thinkin' 'bout his nose in the breeze
