lyrics

BIG BOAT RACE / GO JOHNNY GO

Old Salty: On your marks… Get set…

Chorus: Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go
Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go!

Old Salty: And they’re off!

Chorus: Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go
Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go!

Old Salty: Hey, just wait! There’s number 8!
He’s taken the lead right out of the gate!

Chorus: Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go
Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go!

Old Salty: They’re past the turn, Rod’s in the lead
But ol’ Johnny Boy is picking up speed.

Chorus: Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go
Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go!

Old Salty: Ooh! Number 3’s a sunken wreck
but Rod and Johnny are neck and neck!

Chorus: Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go
Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go!

Old Salty: Something’s wrong! His engine’s dead!
And now old Rod has pulled ahead!

Chorus: Oh no! Johnny No Johnny No Johnny No
Johnny No Johnny No Johnny No Johnny No!

Old Salty: I think ee’s got ‘er started now
with clouds of smoke coming from the bow.

Chorus: Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go
Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go!

Old Salty: It sputters and putters and stutters and shudders
Still Johnny pulls out in front of de yudders!

Chorus: Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go
Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go!

Old Salty: Now ee’s back! They’re nose to nose!
Anything goes here nobody knows!

Chorus: Buddy knows but he knows buddy nobody knows
but he knows buddy knows buddy nobody knows!

Old Salty: The pace is great. A mighty fast clip.
Poor number 8 is out. He flipped!

Chorus: Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go
Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go!

Old Salty: Now that Johnny’s caught right up.
This could be his chance to win the cup!

Chorus: Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go
Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go!

Old Salty: Now they’re at the finish line…
It’s Johnny King for the win this time!

Chorus: Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go
Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go!

Old Salty: He’s broken Rod’s big 5-year streak!
And did it all in a boat that leaks!

Chorus: Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go
Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go!

Old Salty: Johnny King brings home the cup.
Looks like Rod’s all wet and all washed up!

Chorus: Go Johnny Go Johnny Go Johnny Go!
