Carole King - One Was Johnny

rate me

(One was Johnny)

1 was Johnny who lived by himself

2 was a rat who jumped on his shelf

3 was a cat who chased the rat

4 was a dog who came in and sat

5 was a turtle who bit the dog's tail

6 was a monkey who brought in the mail

7 a blackbird pecked poor Johnny's nose

(One was Johnny)

8 was a tiger out selling old clothes

9 was a robber who took an old shoe

10 was a puzzle--what should Johnny do

(One was Johnny)

He stood on a chair and said,

Here's what I'll do--I'll start to

Count backwards

And when I am through

If this house isn't empty, I'll eat

All of you!

9 was the robber who left looking pale

8 was the tiger who chased him to jail

7 was the blackbird flew off to Havana

6 was the monkey who stole the banana

5 was the turtle who crawled off to bed

4 was the dog who slid home on a sled

(One was Johnny)

3 was the cat who pounced on the rat

2 was the rat who left with the cat

(One was Johnny, one was Johnny,

One was Johnny)

1 was Johnny who lived by himself

And liked it like that!

(One was Johnny, one was Johnny)
