Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

he would never say why it was done
JFK was splattered by his gun
he was jailed that night
a bit bruised from a fight
soon he'd know
the final blow

goodbye, ruby shoots lee
only claim to fame, its true
face to face, there in the hallway
hell, he couldn't miss, dude

he questioned why ol' lee had done the deed
he shot him in the name of liberty
kismet can't be changed
take a life and yours gets strange
in jail you're tossed
you pay the cost

goodbye, ruby shoots lee
only claim to fame, its true
face to face, there in the hallway
hell, he couldn't miss, dude

were they in cahoots ?
that's what they say
watched him scream as he was blown away
dyin' 'fore his time
never dreamed that he
would grease that slime
he lost his mind

goodbye, ruby shoots lee
only claim to fame, its true
face to face, there in the hallway
hell, he couldn't miss, dude

We're getting our history lessons for today. Now write something about the astronauts on the moon.

Hey alvin, I like this, particularly the line "take a life and yours gets strange" - make me chuckle.

Hmmm.... you could follow up Ruby's end with Helen Reddy: "Ruby's Egress"

what Rick C said - and "hell, he couldn't miss, dude" was a great sub - I've always thought the key to the whole mystery lies in Ruby killing Lee, because it was so improbable - 555

I'm never comfortable with parodies trashing the Kennedys or Kennedy assassination parodies, but this was pretty good.
