Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1: The Kinks]
Johnny Thunder lives on water, feeds on lightning
Johnny Thunder don't need no one, don't want money
And all the people of the town
They can't get through to Johnny, they will never, ever break him down
Johnny Thunder speaks for no one, goes on fighting
And sweet Helena Dulette prays for Johnny

[Chorus]
Ba ba-ba ba ba-ba ba
Ba ba-ba ba ba-ba ba
Thunder and lightning
Ba ba-ba ba ba-ba ba
Ba ba-ba ba ba-ba ba
Thunder and lightning

[Verse 2: The Kinks]
Though everybody tried their best
Old Johnny vowed that he would never, ever end up like the rest
Johnny Thunder rides the highway, moves like lightning
But sweet Helena just says, "God bless Johnny"

[Chorus]
Ba ba-ba ba ba-ba ba
Ba ba-ba ba ba-ba ba
Thunder and lightning
Ba ba-ba ba ba-ba ba
Ba ba-ba ba ba-ba ba
Thunder and lightning
