Lyrics

Goo Goo Dolls
Words & Music By Paula Boggs ©2016
Verse 1
Willie Nelson's playing on the jukebox.
Followed by a dose of BB King.
I don't see a single Gen X hipster.
Not even a whiff of Hot Line Bling.
Women flirt with purpose and with passion.
Men know how to boot scoot as they roll.
Couples shuffle left then come together.
Others chug brew from the Live Oak.
Pre-chorus 1
Then something real strange begins to happen.
What's that sound now pouring from the cans?
Lordy if it ain't ole Johnny Reznyk.
Drums, strings and crescendo is his brand.
Chorus
Goo Goo Dolls, Goo Goo Dolls
Mercy, mercy me.
Johnny and his Gibson sounding pretty, smug and free.
Wish I had a dollar every time a young girl swooned...
I'd be the richest musician this side of the moon.
Verse 2
I am not an infant of the 90's,
Weaned on Eddie Vedder or Green Day.
Mama sang me Elvis and Ella.
Rocked me to the grooves of Marvin Gaye.
Now we have Tidal and Pandora.
What I make amuses Uncle Sam.
Oh to be transported back to "Iris."
And wanting you to just know who I am.
Pre-chorus
Times were simpler then for a musician.
No one had to know file transfer protocol.
Now you got to be Adele or Kanye.
Or a band like Johnny's to get played at all.
Chorus
Goo Goo Dolls, Goo Goo Dolls
Mercy, mercy me.
Johnny and his Gibson still on FM frequency.
Wish I had a dollar every time a young girl swooned...
I'd be the richest musician this side of the moon
If I had a dollar every time a young girl swooned...
