Bad Company

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

 AEGA
  Johnny told his  Momma, Hey  Momma I'm goin'  away
 AEGA
  I'm gonna hit the  big time, gonna  be a big star some- day
 AEGA
  Momma came  to the door with a  tear drop in her  eye
 AEGA
  Johnny said,  Don't cry Momma  smile & wave good- bye

 AEGA
  Johnny made a  record, went  straight up to number  one
 AEGA
  Suddenly  everyone loved to  hear him sing the  song
 AEGA
  Watching the  world go by,  surprisin' it goes so  fast
