shooting star lyrics – iced earth

johnny was a schoolboy
when he hear his first beatles song
love me do, i thing it was
and from them it didn’t take him long
got himself a guitar
used to play every night
now he’s in a rock n’roll outfit
and every thing’s alright
don’t you know?

johnny told his mama
hey mama, i’m going away
gonna hit the big time
gonna be a big starsomeday
mama come to the door
with a teartrop in her eyes
johnny said, don’t cry, mama
smile and wave goodbye
don’t you know?

chorus:
don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
don’t you know?
don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
and all the world will love you just as long
as long as you are

johnny made a record
went straight up to number one
suddenly everyone loved
to hear him sing the song
watchin’ the world go by
surprisin’ it goes so fast
johnny loked around him and sais,
well, i made the big-time at last
don’t you know?

chorus:
don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
don’t you know?
ahh yeah…
don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
and all the world will love you just as long
as long as you are
yeah a shooting star

solo

chorus:
don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
don’t you know?
don’t you know?
don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
and all the world will love you just as long
as long as you are

johnny died one night, died in huis bed
botlle of whisky, sleeping tablets by his head
johnny’s life p*ssed him by like a warm summer day
if you listen to the wind you can still hear him play, oohhh!
chorus:
don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
don’t you know?
ahh yeah…
don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
don’t you, don’t you, don’t you, don’tyou,
don’t you know ohh?
don’t you know that you are a shooting star?(ohhh yeah…)
don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
(yeeeeaaahhh… yeah a shooting star…)
