Johnny and Mary

Johnny And Mary:  
(by Robert Palmer)  

Johnny's always running around  
Trying to find certainty  
He needs all the world to confirm  
That he ain't lonely...  
Mary counts the walls  
Knows he tires easily  
Johnny thinks the world would be right  
If it would buy truth from him  
Mary says he changes his mind  
More than a woman...  
But she made her bed  
Even though the chance was slim  

Johnny's always running around, running around  
Johnny's always running around, running away  

Johnny says he's willing to learn  
When he decides he's a fool  
Johnny says he'll live anywhere  
When he has time to...  
Mary combs her hair  
Says she should be used to it  
Mary always hedges her bets  
She never knows what to think  
She says he's still acting like he's being discovered...  
Scared that he'll get caught  
Without a second thought  

Johnny feels he's wasting his breath  
Trying to talk sense to her  
Mary says he's lacking a real sense of proportion...  
Mary counts the walls  
Says she should be used to it
