E
Here comes Johnny, singin' oldies, goldies, beebobalooba baby, what I say
Here comes Johnny, singin' "I got a woman", down in the tunnel trying to make it pay
A                                     E
 He got the action, he got the motion. Well, the boy can play
A                      E
 Dedication, devotion. Turning all the night times into the day
       E                         B
Do the song about a sweet lovin' woman
           E                 A
And do the song about the night
             E    B               A

 He got the action, he got the motion. Well, the boy can play
