Spanish johnny drove in from the underworld last night with bruised arms and broken rhythm and a beat-up old buick but dressed just like dynamite.
He tried sellin his heart to the hard girls over on easy street.
But they said: Johnny, it falls apart so easy and you know hearts these days are cheap.
And the pimps swung their axes and said: Johnny, youre a cheater.
And from out of the shadows
came a young girls voice, said: Johnny dont cry.
He said: Puerto Rican Jane, oh wont you tell me whats your name. I want to drive you down to the other side of town where paradise ain't so crowded and there'll be action goin' down on shanty lane tonight.
Like a cool romeo he made his moves, oh she looked so fine.
Like a late Juliet she knew she'd never be true but then she really didnt mind. Upstairs a band was playin and the singer was singin something about going home...she whispered, Spanish Johnny, you can leave me tonight, but just dont leave me alone.
