The Lyrics

Lately I can't wake him up at night
Johnson won't do his part
It ain't the same he used to be my best friend in the dark
Every time I take him out to play
He's not ready girl, what can I say?
No, Johnson's not so spry

Lately he's lazy
He just ain't right
(Got to use your head, little girl)
Johnson don't earn his keep
I'm startin' to worry
He's lost his fight
(Don't stop, try some more, little girl)
Guess I'll count some sheep

Something's wrong in Johnson's neighborhood
Hope he hasn't given up for good
And I can't tell you why
No, baby, Johnson's not so spry
Makes a grown man cry
No, no, baby, I can't tell you why
Johnson's not so spry
Johnson's not so spry

Well mac, this isn't your best effort. The pacing is quite good, although not perfect. And impotance... well, it just isn't very funny. If you're going to sing about penile disfunction, it has to be a rockin' tune like "Start Me Up". In the context of a bitersweet ballad, this subject is just too dark. And calling a penis "Johnson"... that's just lame. Calling a lame penis "Johnson" is even lamer. And besides, most people outside the 40-45 age group demographic don't even know this song. Sure it was a big hit in 1980, but it's pretty far down the Eagles pecking order, and doesn't get much play on radio today. Better luck next time, mac.

I guess I fall into the 40-45 age group demographic... I know the song, and this was a nice giant double entendre. :-)
