The Lyrics

it was a dastardly scene
he was masterfully slain
dead in a...limousine
there's where he...lost his reign
twas quite a drag to hear ol' cronkite squawk

he said...(boom boom)...president kennedy's shot
he said...(boom boom)...president kennedy's shot
there's tears...and fears
he's ruined...here
we're shocked
he said, president kennedy's shot...oh wah

yeah, this fiend was cruel
assassin laying in wait
rifle was his tool
he didn't...hesitate
there's been a crime, ol' walter cronkite squawked

he said...(boom boom)...president kennedy's shot
he said...(boom boom)...president kennedy's shot
oswald was...locked up
but ruby...cleaned...his clock

he said, president kennedy's shot...oh wah
kennedy's killer was caught...oh yeah
kennedy's killer was shot
he said...president...kennedy's...shot

As M. Chevalier might sing, "Ah, yes, I remember it well" (tho' I'm sure my memory is rather more accurate than his). :-)

Very odd...some would say tasteless, in the context of this jaunty tune against such a grim and still somewhat emotion-laden topic. But, one should always go where the muse takes one. 534

Sir Alvin, ~Duke o'Swerve~ good write, and I am addicted to this topic, and on the day, past 40 years since MLK's murder, it is most fitting!
