The Lyrics

Goodbye JFK Jr., though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself, you walked proud and tall
You loved to fly your plane, so your spirit could be free
You wanted to soar above the paparazzi

And it seems to me your life was short like a candle in the wind
Barely knowing your own father, once our President
And I would have liked to have known you but of course I never did
I am just a nobody and you were the Camelot kid

Fame must have been tough, but that's the role you played
America created a superstar and pain was the price you paid
But when you died, your ashes were given to the sea--
So fitting, for one whose spirit was so free

And it seems to me your life was short like a candle in the wind
Barely knowing your own father, once our President
And I would have liked to have known you but of course I never did
I am just a nobody and you were the Camelot kid

Goodbye JFK Jr., though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself, you walked proud and tall
Goodbye JFK Jr., from a person in Tennessee
Who knows you've found the place where your spirit can soar free

And it seems to me your life was short like a candle in the wind
Barely knowing your own father, once our President
And I would have liked to have known you but of course I never did
I am just a nobody and you were the Camelot kid

That's so touching,beaurtiful,and mind-stirring.It's not very funny,but some who knew the son of an assasinated President would keep your parody in their hearts.Overall,I adored it.
