"Johnny Wanna Live" is a pop song by German singer Sandra.

The song originally was an album track on Sandra's fourth studio album Paintings in Yellow. It was remixed and released in June 1992 to promote her second greatest hits compilation album 18 Greatest Hits. The song, co-written by Frank Peterson and later redone by his then-girlfriend Sarah Brightman on her album Dive, was an anthem against cruelty to animals. 

Lyrics Edit

I got something on my mind
Makes me sad and makes me cry - oh no
Johnny wanna live

Just an ordinary day
An animal will pass away - oh no
Johnny wanna live

Who's to say he got no rights
Even not a right to life?
Don't know why it leaves you cold
Don't know how to make it show - oh no
Johnny wanna live
Johnny wanna live

Got to give his skin away
For coats the wear on summer days - oh no
Johnny wanna live

Beauty aid and all the rest
Come directly from a test - oh no
Johnny wanna live

Through his eyes I look inside his heart
He can feel like me and you
Can't defend himself cause he can't talk
And this is why I talk to you

Johnny isn't just a name
He stands for every creature's pain - on no
Johnny wanna live
Johnny wanna live

Go an try to look inside his heart
You can find your own mistakes
Try to hide them thinking he can't talk
But he can read them on your face

Tell me why it leaves you cold
I swear I'm gonna to make it show - oh no
Johnny wanna live (Oh, no!)
Johnny wanna live...
