„His mother told him, "Someday you will be a man,
And you will be the leader of a big old band.
Many people coming from miles around
To hear you play your music when the sun go down.
Maybe someday your name will be in lights
Saying 'Johnny B. Goode tonight'."“

"Johnny B. Goode" (1958)

That poorly satisfy our eyes
More by your number than your light;
You common people of the skies,
What are you when the sun shall rise?“
