    Empty Garden (Hey Hey Johnny)

    [Verse 1]
    What happened here as the New York sunset disappeared?
    I found an empty garden among the flagstones there
    Who lived here? He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
    Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
    Now it all looks strange
    It's funny how one insect can damage so much grain

    [Verse 2]
    And what's it for? This little empty garden by the brownstone door
    And in the cracks along the sidewalk, nothin' grows no more
    Who lived here? He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
    Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
    And we are so amazed, we're crippled and we're dazed
    A gardener like that one, no one can replace

    [Chorus]
    And I've been knockin', but no one answers
    And I've been knockin' most of the day
    Oh, and I've been callin', "oh, hey, hey, Johnny
    Can't you come out to play?"

    [Verse 3]
    And through their tears
    Some say he farmed his best in younger years
    But he'd have said that roots grow stronger, if only he could hear
    Who lived there? He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
    Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
    Now we pray for rain, and with every drop that falls
    We hear, we hear your name

    [Chorus]
    And I've been knockin', but no one answers
    And I've been knockin' most of the day
    Oh, and I've been callin', "Oh, hey, hey, Johnny
    Can't you come out to play?"

    [Chorus]
    And I've been knockin', but no one answers
    And I've been knockin' most of the day
    Oh, and I've been callin', "Oh, hey, hey, Johnny
    Can't you come out?
    Can you come out to play?"

    [Outro]
    Johnny, can't you come out to play in your empty garden?
    Johnny, can't you come out to play in your empty garden?
    Johnny, can't you come out to play in your empty garden?
    Johnny, can't you come out to play in your empty garden?
    Johnny, can't you come out to play in your empty garden?
    Johnny, can't you come out to play in your empty garden?
