(sung by johnny thunder and chorus) See johnny thunder sitting on his motorbike Riding along the highway, Rock and roll songs from the nineteen-fifties Buzzing around in his brain. Johnny thunder hes one of the original bebop generation And hes got no time for complicated music or too much sophistication. Hes one of the survivors, The motorbike riders. You ought to see johnny thunder riding down the highway One of the rock and roll survivors, Twelve bars flowing through his brain. He digs jerry lee lewis, dion and the belmonts, And johnny & the hurricanes. He plays hound dog, oh boy, and great balls of fire And boppin at the high school hop. And hes got no time for phonies or posers cos they dont know how to reel and rock. And he plays little egypt and ooh poo pah doo, And he plays poison ivy and blue suede shoes, The hollywood argyles, danny & the juniors, Dion & the belmonts, johnny & the hurricanes. Hes one of the survivors, The boppers and the jivers, Yeah and he rocks all day. Johnny & the hurricanes, johnny & the hurricanes. Got my freedom riding along the freeway. I ride a hundred miles an hour but I dont mess up my d.a. Rock, rock, rock, rock, rock n roll. You cant stop rock n rollin music play. (repeat last two lines) Feel those vibrations flow in my brain. Got my freedom riding down the highway, Keeps me sane, feel alive, Im one of the survivors. Feel all right. First gear, second gear, third gear, fourth gear, all right. Old johnny thunder looks a little overweight, And his sideburns are turning grey. But he still likes to bebop, boogie and jive To his worn out seventy-eights. Johnny thunder. Hes alright. Hes one of the survivors, Twelve bars flowing through his brain, Jerry lee lewis, dion & the belmonts, Johnny & the hurricanes, johnny & the hurricanes.
