Status Quo - Johnny And Mary Lyrics




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 for him
Mary says he changes his mind more than a woman
But she made her bed
Even when the chance was slim

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 he 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 be 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
So she combs her hair
Knows he tires easily

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
Says he should be used to it

Status Quo Johnny And Mary Comments
  1. Fernando Hernandez

    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 for him
    Mary says he changes his mind more than a woman
    But she made her bed
    Even when the chance was slim

    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 he 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 be 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
    So she combs her hair
    Knows he tires easily

    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
    Says he should be used to it

    Great cover, great voice and guitar work.

  3. TheBeautifulBernice

    On my God my ears are bleeding 😵

  4. Alessio Mazzeo

    They didn't play the synth parts, which are the only parts able to give this masterpiece his brilliance. With just keyboard vamps and chords, I think this sounds really too flat. Lack of colors here, better Palmer ♡

  5. Richard James

    car crash of a cover version, awful

  6. Ingeborg Steuer

    Great! I love Francis voice❣

  7. Rune Tollefsen

    Excellent cover of Robert Palmer's original.. Just lacks some of the sadness that comes out of Palmer's original.

  18. Wagner Amaral

    precisamos ter esta nostalgia sempre

  19. Noé1978 Pérez ledesma
