Lennon Song - by Ben Orton

John Lennon

When Lennon died I nearly cried
My girl friend woke me up
He bought a one-way ticket to ride, she said.
At first I thought its just a joke
He's doing fine in Mexico
Took a while to hit me in the head.

John's whole life was peace and love
Imagining a god above
I'd like to say well maybe now he knows.
Shot down by some lunatic
He got 'em from behind.
Wish we'd been aware he picked tonight.

Heard it on the radio
Beatle music playing low
Across the world the people know as well.
I sip my gin and tonic
Thinking isn't it ironic
Bang bang Chapman's silver hammer came down on his head.

John's whole trip was peace and love
Imagining a god above
I'd like to say that maybe now he knows.
Shot down by some lunatic
He got 'em from behind.
Wish we'd been aware he picked tonight.
