I Just Shot John Lennon

Song Credits

Lyrics

It was a fearful night of December 8th
He was returning home from the studio, late
He had perceptively known that it wouldn't be nice
Because in 1980 he paid the price

John Lennon died, John Lennon died, John Lennon died
John Lennon died, John Lennon died, John Lennon died

With a Smith&Wesson, 38
John Lennon's life was no longer a debate
He should have stayed at home
He should have never cared
And the man who took his life declared
He said...

"I just shot John Lennon", he said,
"I just shot John Lennon"
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight
What a sad and sorry and sickening night
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight
What a sad and sorry and sickening night

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah...
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah...
