SUMMER?S COMING SOON

Verse 1
Johnny was a young boy, no one understood him.
He was just a little different in a world that?s all the same,
One day he was walking home from school,
fell off the icy road the bastards all call sane.

Chorus
Johnny Johnny, what?s gone,
You?ve been flying solo far too long,
You need to wake up, smell the sights,
Coz summer?s coming soon

Verse 2
He?s the boy who?s never inside,
Behind that lifeless grin his mind used to hide.
He?s still got that monkey on his back,
He listens to Dookie all day long,
Just trying to prove that Billie Joe was wrong

(Chorus)

(Verse 3)
But one day that all changed,
When Johnny met young Sue.
She was just a young girl
She was so well to do,
Born they say with a silver spoon, sticking from her ass.
Johnny then began to change, the clam came out of it?s suitcase,
Sue had brought him home from hell

(Chorus)

(Verse 4)
Summer?d come and gone when Sue could take no more,
She was the one, could do no wrong,
She sent him right away,
She?d killed what he?d had left,
Basket Case still playing,
Billie Joe was right!

Ok, so let me no what you think of this. Crit for Crit of course

Wow, I have strong mixed feelings about this. First of all, loved the idea about Johnny, and what he did. Reminded me of Tom Sawyer. But then I didn't understand some parts, like Billie Joe, and then I found "silver spoon out of her ass" a little unessessary. But, overall, I really enjoyed this piece. 9/10 on my scale.

Ya, i didn't really expect anyone to get the whole Billie Joe thing, its too long and complicated to explain, and now that i think about it, i guess you're probably right about the 'Silver spoon sticking from her ass' part, it was kind of unnessessary. thanks for the review, good to know someone likes it!!! thanks

Yeah I don't think I'd be all liek green day advertising in my song. I don't understand the whole Dookie, Billie Joe stuff.
I liked the Johnny and Sue stuff.
But it is kinda hard to understand what your capturing.
