The Lyrics

Whoo-ooh, whoo-ooh
Whoo-ooh

Here comes Johnny lookin' mean and nasty
Don't make him angry, listen what I say
Here comes Johnny and he's holdin' a weapon
Danger's a-comin', better run away

He's kinda whacked out, he's kinda psycho
Yeah, the boy's insane
Mutilation, destruction
Bringin' all the bloodshed, bringin' the pain

He'll have you screamin' as he slices and dices
He'll have you fearin' for your life
He'll carve you up with the butcher's knife
Yeah, he'll use the butcher's knife

Whoo-ooh

Here comes Johnny, gonna hack through the crowd now
Corpses mounting by the score
All those people lyin' bleedin' on the ground now
Dead beat, won't run no more

He's havin' fun now, just gettin' started
Yeah, the boy's insane
Mutilation, destruction
Bringin' all the bloodshed, bringin' the pain

He'll have you screamin' as he slices and dices
He'll have you fearin' for your life
Yeah, he'll carve you up with the butcher's knife
Yeah, he'll use the butcher's knife

Whoo-ooh-ooh

There goes Johnny in a cop car's back seat
He's been arrested, it's a happy day
There goes Johnny, headed for the asylum
Doctors and nurses lockin' him away

Can't have him out there walkin' the streets now
'Cause the boy's insane
He's a psycho, a nutcase
Bringin' all the bloodshed, bringin' the pain

But even though the violence is over now
You still have nightmares 'bout the danger and the strife
You dream about, yeah, you dream about that knife
Mmm, about that butcher's knife

Whoo-ooh
Whoo-ooh-ooh
Whoo-ooh-ooh
Whoo-ooh
Whoo-ooh-ooh
Dream about the butcher's knife

And after all the effort I went to making sure I didn't include the 'D' anywhere so nobody would find out - bloody hell.

I like this - it adds a whole new dimension to the original song.
