Songtekst

There she goes and knows I'm dying
When she says: who is Johnny
Games with names that girl is playing
All she says is: who is Johnny

I try to understand because I'm people too
And playing games is part of human nature
My heart's in overdrive
It's great to be alive

Who's Johnny, she said
And smiled in her special way
Johnny, she said
You know I love you
Who's Johnny, she said
And tried to look the other way
Her eyes gave her away

She makes sure I see her teasing
Hear her say: who is Johnny
There's no way to take this easy
Hear her say: who is Johnny

I really couldn't help but fall in love with her
Her being there has made my life worth living
I knew it from the start
That I would lose my heart

Who's Johnny, she said
And smiled in her special way
Johnny, she said
You know I love you
Who's Johnny, she said
And tried to look the other way
Still pretending

Who's Johnny, who's Johnny
Who's Johnny, who's Johnny

Who's Johnny, she said
And tried to look the other way
Her eyes gave her away

Girls like her are very special
Girls like her don't rest
Till you too are a believer
Till you too have caught their fever

Who is Johnny

There she goes and knows I'm dying
When she says: who is, who, who is

Who's Johnny, she said
And smiled in her special way
Johnny, she said
You know I love you
Who's Johnny, she said
And tried to look the other way
Her eyes gave her away

Who's Johnny, who's Johnny, who's Johnny
Who's Johnny, who's Johnny, who's Johnny
Who's Johnny, who's Johnny, who's Johnny
That girl's pretending she can't remember my name

Who's Johnny, who's Johnny, who's Johnny (Oh, I can't believe it)
Who's Johnny, who's Johnny, who's Johnny (I know this girl is only teasing)
Who's Johnny, who's Johnny, who's Johnny (She sais she walked away with someone else)
And left me standing there

Who's Johnny, who's Johnny, who's Johnny
Who's Johnny, who's Johnny, who's Johnny
Who's Johnny, who's Johnny, who's Johnny

Who's Johnny

Trivia

Het nummer is afkomstig uit de Amerikaanse comedyfilm Short Circuit, waarin de militaire humanoïde robot Number 5 door een kortsluiting een zelfbewustzijn krijgt en in contact komt met het meisje Stephanie. In de film is het nummer te horen als Stephanie aan Number 5 haar huiskamer laat zien en de radio aanzet. In het latere scène komt het nog eens voorbij als Number 5 de autoradio aanzet. In de slotscène besluit de robot zijn naam te veranderen in Johnny 5. De videoclip van Who's Johnny speelt zich af in een rechtbank, waar El DeBarge als getuige optreedt. De actrice Ally Sheedy, die in Short Citcuit de rol van Stephanie speelt, speelt ook mee in de video. In de rechtszaal wordt als bewijsstuk een videoband van Short Citcuit vertoond, waarna beelden uit de film te zien zijn. Van de robot Number 5 zijn alleen de handen te zien, zowel op de beelden van de videoband als in de rechtszaal zelf. Het hoofd en de rest van zijn lichaam worden niet getoond.
