​Johnny Come Outside

This song is by Shovels & Rope and appears on the album Little Seeds (2016).

Born in the summer
Handsome and tall
Golden child seemed to have it all

But he was never happy
Never sad
Teacher said it's just a phase and he'll grow out of it

Older now
Saw the sign
Looking for that magnetic, outgoing, shine a light kind

One day
The world just slipped
Hush little baby on a sinking ship

Oh, Johnny, won't you come outside
Don't you know it's not polite to hide
Oh, Johnny, won't you come outside please
Oh

Oh, Johnny, won't you come outside
Don't you know it's not polite to hide
Oh, Johnny, won't you come outside for me

Seroxat, amphetamine
Doctor says to stimulate the dopamine
Electro-shock therapy
We'll have a well-adjusted member of society, you'll see

But he dreams the meadows and the quiet places
On a motorcycle riding through the Willamina timber
A warm breeze, a soft trip
Mother's little helper and a morphine drip

Oh, Johnny, won't you come outside
Don't you know it's not polite to hide
Oh, Johnny, won't you come outside please
Oh

Oh, Johnny, won't you come outside
Don't you know it's not polite to hide
Oh, Johnny, won't you come outside for me
