Loudon Wainwright III – Not John lyrics

The limousine was waiting
Outside the studio
In stepped poor john Lennon
And his wife Yoko
Ono - Not John

On up 44th Street
Left at 8th avenue
Up to the Dakota
A man waits there for you
Oh no - Yes John

The man's name is Chap-man
Comes from Honolulu
He really loved your music John
Got a Japanese wife to
Oh no - poor Sean

Five bullets in your body
That's what the experts say
They say you signed an autograph
For him on that very day
Oh no - not John

There was a vigil at the Roosevelt
At the Dakota too
Silence in Central Park
They had a riot in Liverpool
Now Chapman is in the jailhouse
What's he doing there?
He went and he shot John Lennon
All you heroes best be aware
Oh no - not John

The limousine was waiting
Outside the studio
In stepped poor john Lennon
And his wife Yoko
Ono - not John
