"Honest John" is a deleted song from the animated feature Pinocchio.

The song was never meant to be sung in the film, but was instead an "exploitation song" made at the request of publisher Irving Berlin, Inc. for use in the film's promotional campaign; other songs in this category are "Jiminy Cricket" and "Monstro the Whale". Nevertheless, the song's melody can be heard in the film's underscore when boys are crowding for cigars at Pleasure Island's Tobacco Row.

Lyrics

Honest John, they call him Honest John
But I wouldn't trust him as far as I could
Throw an elephant over my shoulder
Throw a curve with a 10-ton boulder

Honest John, look out for Honest John
'Cause he's only honest by reputation
Though you'll find him in church on Sunday,
He'll steal pennies from a blind man Monday

Any old time that anything is gone,
Look for Honest John

There is one in every city
One in every neighborhood
He's doing well, but to hear him tell
He's always doing good

He belongs to all the lodges
Wears a politician's smile
Any time that you run into him
It's time to run a mile

Honest John, they call him Honest John
But I wouldn't trust him as far as I'd trust
Robert Taylor with my new honey
Or a burglar with all my money

Honest John, look out for Honest John
And don't ask him out to your house because he'll
Steal the bulbs right out of their sockets
He's so crooked, he'd pick his own pockets

Any old time that anything is gone
Look for Honest John
