Testo della canzone Good Bye Jonny (Joe Jackson), tratta dall'album Fast Forward

Good Bye Jonny - Joe Jackson

My friend Jonny loved a lady
Who was as bad as women can be
The lady's name was Lily
And Jonny loved her just as much as me
Then one night Jonny lost his head
He found her naked in a sailor's bed
Jonny cried, oh no
Lily sighed, please go
But he pulled a gun instead
The gun it made a bang
And all the angels sang
Good bye!

Good bye Lily, good bye Lily
We could have had it all
But it never lasts forever
And now we've nothing at all
Good bye Lily, good bye Lily
Life can be so cruel
I'll keep going, just keep going
Just another poor fool
And though my heart may break in two
A hundred years from now
These things will all be forgotten
Good bye Lily, good bye Lily
We were more than friends
Someday maybe – in heaven maybe
Or the other place
I will see your face
And be happy again

My friend Jonny was a rover
He was a gypsy who never had a home
But now his journey's over
And flowers grow on top of his bones
Into battle we both were led
With Jonny carrying our flag ahead
And though the day was dark – a bomber found his mark
Just another young man's head
The bomb it made a boom
Which spelled poor Jonny's doom
Good bye!

Good bye Jonny, good bye Jonny
We could have had it all
But it never lasts forever
And now we've nothing at all
Good bye Jonny, good bye Jonny
Life can be so cruel
I'll keep going, just keep going
Just another poor fool
And though my heart may break in two
A hundred years from now
These things will all be forgotten

Good bye Jonny, good bye Jonny
We were more than friends
Someday maybe – in heaven maybe
Or the other place
I may see your face
And be happy again
