The song is a parody of “Johnny Angel” by Shelley Fabares, which enjoyed a two-week run at No. 1 on the Billboard charts in 1962. Here are the lyrics in the video:
Johnny Football, Johnny Football. You’re an angel to us.
Johnny Football. How we love him. He’s got something Aggies can’t resist. And he doesn’t even know impossible exists.
Johnny Football. How we love him. How we tingle when the football flies. Everytime he starts to run our hearts begin to fly.
We’re in heaven. We get carried away. We dream of SEC. And how it’s going to be. Everybody said we could not compete. But now we’re 5-2 and really hard to beat.
Because Johnny Football. How we love him. Pray that someday he will see a Heisman cause he certainly worthy.
Other defenses, they just chase him around. But they can’t bring him down before scoring a touchdown. Mr. Lou Holtz, could you please capitulate. It’s really not too late. You know that we are great with
Johnny Football. The Aggies love him. This team’s behind him all the way. And we really like to play football on New Year’s Day.
With Johnny Football. You’re an angel to us.
Oh, Johnny Football. You’re an angel to us.
Johnny Football. You’re an angel to us.
