Verse 1: main riff repeated

When everybody else refrained,
my Uncle Jonny did cocaine.
He’s convinced himself right in his brain
That it helps to take away the pain.
Hey, Jonny.

Verse 2: main riff repeated

Hey what you say, Jonny?
I want to go out tonight.
Come a little closer to the city light,
Levitation ain’t your only friend.
Levitation coming back again.
