Schwa Lyrics

Shooting Star

Lyricist: Bad Company
Vocalist: Dave Katz
Johnny was a schoolboy when he heard his first Beatles song
Love Me Do, I think it was and from there it didn't take him long
Got himself a guitar, used to play every night
Now he's in a rock & roll outfit, and everything's all right

Don't you know?
Johnny told his Momma, Hey Momma I'm goin' away
I'm gonna hit the big time, gonna be a big star someday
Momma came to the door with a teardrop in her eye
Johnny said, Don't cry Momma smile & wave goodbye

CHORUS:
Don't you know, yeah, yeah?
Don't you know that you are a shooting star?
Don't you know, don't you know?
Don't you know that you are a shooting star?
And all the world will love you just as long
As long as you are

Johnny made a record, went straight up to number one
Suddenly everyone loved to hear him sing the song
Watching the world go by, surprisin' it goes so fast
Johnny looked around him and said, Well, I made the big time at last

Don't you know, don't you know?
Don't you know that you are a shooting star?
Don't you know, whoa yeah
Don't you know that you are a shooting star, yeah?
And all the world will love you just as long
As long as you are, a shooting star

Don't you know that you are a shooting star, don't you know
Don't you know that you are a shooting star?
And all the world will love you just as long, as long as you are
Johnny died one night, died in his bed
Bottle of whiskey, sleepin' tablets by his head 
Johnny's life passed him by like a warm summer day
If you listen to the wind, you can still hear him play
Don't you know that you are a shooting star, don't you know, don't you know
Don't you know that you are a shooting star, don't you know
Don't you know that you are a shooting star?
Don't you, don't you, don't you, don't you, don't you know
Don't you know you are a shooting star?
Na, na, na, na...
