Johnny was a Pyro
by Patty Larkin
Johnny Was A Pyro and he acted like a baby
Wanted all of this attention I couldn't give
Drink a bottle of hard stuff, say I love you now save me
Just a big guy with a big sense of sin

And the neighbor down the block in his underwear and socks
Keeping track of the losses and wins
With his wife hanging out the window wondering which way the wind blows
As I fumble the key in the lock again, singing

Oh me
What am I doing with this ring on my hand
Oh me
If this is the good life who's choosin it
Oh me
Mama's best woman and daddy's best man
Oh me
I'm highly in danger of losin it

Johnny Was A Pyro and he acted like a baby
Got a phone call from wild almost every night
Well he loved me but he really loved looking past me to the ladies
He was much too good looking for his height

We were a couple of kis crawling out of the crib
Talking about the positives and the negatives of wine
Living our lives just like Hemingway did
But he was lucky, he was a genius most of the time

Oh me
What am I doing with this ring on my hand
Oh me
If this is the good life who's choosin it
Oh me
Mama's best woman and daddy's best man
Oh me
I'm highly in danger of losin it

He was sideswiped by the clue bus when it came to talking two of us
And the while thing ended ugly I guess
You can put your cards out on the table but if nobody wants to play
Well, you haven't got a game you've got a mess

I was looking at the judge leaning on my lawyer like a crutch
And the judge said what happened and why
I said, Johnny Was A Pyro and he acted like a baby
Now there's nothing like the sound of good bye

Oh me
What am I doing with this ring on my hand
Oh me
If this is the good life who's choosin it
Oh me
Mama's best woman and daddy's best man
Oh me
I'm highly in danger of losin it
