  • Hey, man, I see you
    Open up, okay
    Get out of here, Iggy
    Come on now, fix me up

    Love becomes compulsive
    It's wiser to say no
    God made me a junkie
    But Satan told me so

    You're strung out, Johnny
    And you can't get away
    You're strung out, Johnny
    And now it's time to pay

    First time, you do it with a friend
    Second time, you do it in a bed
    Third time, you can't get enough
    And your life gets all fucked up

    All fucked up
    You're strung out Johnny (strung out Johnny, oh)
    You're strung out Johnny (strung out Johnny, oh)

    Ronny said to Donnie
    Sell that boy a spoon
    Dump him like a hero
    Or be forgotten soon

    I'm strung out, mommy
    And I can't get away
    I'm strung out, mommy
    And now it's time to pay

    First time, you do it with a friend
    Second time, you do it in a bed
    Third time, you can't get enough
    And your life gets all fucked up

    All fucked up
    You're strung out, Johnny

    You're strung out, Johnny (strung out, Johnny, oh)
    And you can't get away
    You're strung out, Johnny (strung out, Johnny, oh)
    And now it's time to pay
    You're strung out, Johnny (strung out, Johnny, oh)
    Nobody loves you so
    You're strung out, Johnny (strung out, Johnny, oh)
    And that's the way it goes
    I'm strung out, mommy (strung out, Johnny, oh)
    I'm strung out, mommy (strung out, Johnny, oh)
    You're strung out, Johnny Writer/s: Andrew Wotman, Chad Smith, James Newell Jr. Osterberg, Josh Klinghoffer
