Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

one killed...he was slaughtered
yes, one killed...that was all
slain by gun...one brother's preview
can't do anything but bawl
go ask dallas
why he had to fall

he caught cuba...raisin' missles
they were told...they're goin' to fall
tell 'em to cool it...spoke our chief and leader
ain't givin' up...at all
in dallas
he made his last call

why that man in the bookstore
got up and felled him, i don't know
oh, they picked him up in the darkness
of the local movie show
go ask dallas
why did he go ?
no logic...all distortion
as far as i have read
and that film shows his neck snapped backwards
could that shot could have come from ahead ?
remember what walt cronkite said
he's shot dead
he's shot dead

5-5-5, great job, Alvin, and I'm giving you ''5" for "How Funny" because there's definitely lots of things that are funny-strange about that historical event.

I also gave you a 5 for funny, for the sheer intelligence of this piece. You never disappoint, Al.

WOW! Fantastic job, alvin. Brought me back to when I first heard the news...Audubon Jr. High School, 3rd period Science class, Mr. Holly was late getting there after the "Nutrition" break, something that never happened before. He was even paler than usual...stunned disbelief when he told us the news...

Strange, I have been thinking of doing something on this historic event myself. I was just thinking the other day about it. Last May I had a business trip to Dallas and I stayed in a hotel about four blocks from where this incident took place. I stood on the grassy knoll and visited the book repository. You get a whole different slant on things when you see this place up close and personal. The shots could have only come from the direction of the railroad tracks on the bridge that the road he was shot on goes under about 100 yards ahead. But I am sure others would disagree.

Anyway, Alvin, great parody. I was in 7th grade 6th period history class when I heard the news. So counting backwards 7, 6, and the next number is guess what? 5!

Excellent job Alvin. I was 4 when Kennedy was shot and the only thing I remember was that I was upset for days 'cus I couldn't find any cartoons on TV.... I do remember the photo in Look Magazine of Oswald being shot by Ruby tho'.

As Presidents go, the grandson of John F. Fitzgerald was better than most. What he would have thought of psychedelic music had he lived four more years would be something I'd like to know. Paul: Would that have been Audubon, New Jersey? I had a Mr. Holly for science in 7th grade in East Brunswick, 20 years later, it could've been the same guy. His wife taught home ec: "My husband takes sugar and water and turns it into carbon. I turn it into brownies."
