Canción Johnny - Craig David

El cantante Craig David, con su canción "Johnny", incluida en su álbum "The story goes..." pretende retratar la dureza del bullying. La canción es autobiogràfica ya que Craig David sufrió acoso escolar cuando era pequeño. Respecto al tema el cantante a dicho que "lo peor del bullying es que no tiene una salida fácil" y añadió que "es difícl decírselo a los profesores y a la familia porque crees que las medidas que vayan a tomar empeorarán la situación. Has de decírselo a alguien en quien confíes. Y encontrar la suficiente energía positiva para resolver el problema".

LETRA ORIGINAL DE LA CANCIÓN:

[Verso 1:]
It's another day at school and he's just walking out the door
Got his ruck sack on his back and his feet dragging on the floor
Always late, but when he's questioned he can't think of what to say
Hides the bruises from the teachers hoping that they go away
Even though his mom and dad they both got problems of their own
Caught in a catch 22 but he'd still rather be at home
Crys himself to sleep and prays when he wakes up things might have changed
But everythings still the same

(But didn't you say) You always said that I should speak up, Mmm....
But it seems like all the things you said to me before mean nothing at all
Because...

[Estribillo:]
I keep telling you that Johnny's hitting me
Thats why I'm late for school (but you never listen)
Instead you always seem to end up blaming me for things I didn't do (For what it's worth)
I didn't even want to tell you anything incase it made things worse (Just so you know)
Every time I say that Johnny's hitting meHey Mom and Dad it hurts

[Verso 2:]
Everyday keeps on repeating like the record on replay
Slowly getting off the bus with Johnny waiting at the gates
Like a friend smiling and waiveing and called him out his name
Put his arm around his neck whats up now gimme all your change
Too afraid to make a scene or plead with him to let him go
He just takes whatevers coming, feels the pain with every blow
Trys in vain to make himself be heard as soon as he gets home
But everythings still the same...

(But didn't you say) You always said that I should speak up, Mmm....
But it seems like all the things you said to me before mean nothing at all
Because...

[Estribillo:]
I keep telling you that Johnny's hitting me
Thats why I'm late for school (but you never listen)
Instead you always seem to end up blaming me for things I didn't do (For what it's worth)
I didn't even want to tell you anything incase it made things worse (Just so you know)
Every time I say that Johnny's hitting meHey Mom and Dad it hurts

[Verso 3:]
You always said that I should speak up, Mmm...
And to never be afraid to come and tell you if I needed to talk (If I needed to talk, Yeah)
Well I don't know the meaning of love, Mmm...
Cause it seems like all the things you said to me before mean nothing at all

(Mean nothing at all)
Because....

[Estribillo x3:]
I keep telling you that Johnny's hitting me
Thats why I'm late for school (but you never listen)
Instead you always seem to end up blaming me for things I didn't do (For what it's worth)
I didn't even want to tell you anything incase it made things worse (Just so you know)
Every time I say that Johnny's hitting meHey Mom and Dad it hurts
