The Lyrics

The newest Heisman Trophy winner, Johnny Manziel, also known as "Johnny Football", is a quarterback from Texas A&M who possesses an ability to scramble unlike anything I've ever seen before in forty years of watching football. This would make him a perfect fit for my hometown Arizona Cardinals, who lack both an NFL caliber QB and the offensive line to protect one. And of course, the connection between "Johnny Football" and "Johnny Angel" is way too obvious for even a amateur parodist to miss
Johnny Football
Johnny Football
Johnny Football
Johnny Football
Come play football for me

Johnny Football, how I want him
He's the top of ev'ry Cards fans list
Cause at present, seems our passing O-O doesn't exist
Johnny Football, got his Heisman
Now it's time to kiss the Aggs good-by
And together with FitzGerald
Make the Cardinals fly

Without Warner, tossing pigskins around
Our offense has been rank
Now we must go in the tank
Other GM's, want to trade for our pick
But we'll just say "That's nice"
We're gonna roll the dice
For Johnny Football ... cause we need him
And we pray that soon he'll leave Aggies
And together we will see how lovely
Offense can be

I'm in heaven, as he scoots through the D
His scrambling is divine
Won't need to fix O-Line
Other GM's say he'll stay at AM
But I won't take their bait
I'd rather lose and wait
For Johnny Football .. cause I love him
And I hope someday he'll play for me
And together we will see how super
Bowling will be

(Johnny Football)
(Johnny Football)
Johnny Football (Johnny Football)
Come play football for me ....
FitzGerald -- Referring to Larry FitzGerald, an all time great wide receiver whose talents, at present, are being wasted .... Warner -- Kurt Warner, the last great, or even capable, quarterback to play for the Cardinals

Timmy, for a while I thought he was overhyped , it took one quarter of football against Bama to change my mind

DK US football but this one got me in and it's not too technical so I can relate. I love the Carpenters version of this, perfect vehicle for Karen. Nice juxtaposition of masculine topic with feminine OS. 555s for that.

Do I take from your comment, LL that you're not an America? If that be the case, allow me to explain perhaps my best line "His scrambling is divine; Won't need to fix O-Line." -- The Arizona Cardinals offensive line (O-'Line), which is tasked with keeping the defensive lineman from getting to the quarterback when he passes has been terrible, which is the primary source of our offense's (or O) problems. But since this kid is so good at "scrambling" or evading the pass rushers, we wouldn't need to expend draft picks for better offensive lineman, hence, "won't need to fix O-Line"

Non-urgent Johnny Manziel update, three years later -- Good thing nobody ever took this parody seriously ;-D ..... What a difference three years makes
