Johnny was bad, even as a child Everybody could tell Everyone said, "If you don't get straight, you'll surely go to hell". But Johnny didn't care He was an outlaw by the time that he was ten years old He didn't wanna do what he was told Just a prankster, a juvenile gangster. His teachers didn't understand They kicked him out of school At a tender early age Just because he didn't want to learn things Had other interests He liked to burn things
Oingo Boingo - Only a Lad Cassette Music Album Tape Retro Vintage RARE. Little Girls' starts off the album in a really great way, being a way of instantly establishing the weirdness of the band, contrasting really fun, catchy synthpop melodies with some incredibly unsettling lyrics. This is definitely one of those songs that will worm its way into your head and pop up at the most inopportune times, but I still can't deny that it is really fun to listen to.
