Tony Maloney

This song is about that guy at school who seems to have everything. Everything that is, except a relationship with Jesus.

No one’s as crazy as Tony Maloney, a party just isn’t a party until he’s there
Girls are all crazy for Tony Maloney, guys all wish they could even begin to compare
He’s a football stud and a homecoming king, says it right there on his gold class ring
That the cheerleaders fight for the precious honor to wear

He’s Tony Maloney, king of the high school halls
His legend of greatness is written on the bathroom walls
He’s even nice to the nerds he meets, he has a GPA of A’s and B’s
Everybody wants to be Tony

He drives a Mustang on weekdays, on Sunday’s he races his ‘Vette
Try as they may to catch his fast Chevrolet no one has ever even came close to him yet
Well he’s had some close calls with the arm of the law
but his daddy has seemed to take care of them all
Living his life a short step from the edge of a fall

He’s Tony Maloney, king of the high school halls
His legend of greatness is written on the bathroom walls
He’s even nice to the nerds he meets, he has a GPA of A’s and B’s
Everybody wants to be Tony

It was an out‐of‐school party when Ton said he’s sorry he was going to leave early and go head home
As he stood in the driveway by his new Ferrari I remembered he’d earlier politely lent me his phone
As I met him outside he had tears in his eyes said he didn’t know why sometimes he cries
I said Tony, don’t you really know who you are

You’re Tony Maloney, king of the high school halls
Your legend of greatness is written on the bathroom walls
You’re even nice to the nerds you meet, you have a GPA of A’s and B’s
Everybody wants to be Tony

I’m now much older from when he cried on my shoulder I’d even like to pretend I’m wiser, too
Cause there’s this deep hole inside you only Jesus provides you
The comfort I now know he was missing that June
He hit the telephone pole going 1‐0‐3 wasn’t so sure he didn’t mean it to be
Everybody told his story in their home room

He was Tony Maloney, king of the high school halls
His legend of greatness survive him on the bathroom walls
He was even nice to the nerds he met, he had a GPA that was excellent
Everybody wanted to be Tony, Tony, Tony, Tony
