BURT BACHARACH lyrics - So Long Johnny

BURT BACHARACH
"So Long Johnny"

Hold me close, show me a smile
I'll just be gone for a little while
Johnny, so long Johnny
Promise you'll wait for me
Ummm, wait for me

I'll write twice every day
Here in my heart you'll always stay
Trust me, so long Johnny
Promise you'll wait for me
Ummm, wait for me

There is a boy I left behind
He's in love with me
And I want to see him and try
To explain he and I owe you
Let me come to you with a love that is free
Not one that's chained to me

Johnny, Dear, please understand
It's gonna be just the way we planned
Hold on, so long Johnny
I'm coming back to you
Oh, Johnny wait for me
I'm coming back to you
Oh, Johnny wait for me
