Verse (same as first)
Johnny was only a lad
Johnny hates the scene
First he hit an old man
Then he hit and run Pauline
The record player spinning the best times
I never had
So why do my old records make me sad?

[E5]Cause they're so [C5]bad
[G5]And no one seems to under[D5]stand
The glory of [E5]guitar
When out of [C5]tune
The off ti[G5]ming
The singers who can't [D5]sing
The beauty of flaw
