Black Velvet Flag – I Shot JFK lyrics

There was no conspiracy.
It was all for anarchy.
The President,
Don't mean shit to me.
One less Kennedy.

I Shot J. F. K.
Pulled the trigger,
Blew him away.
I Shot J. F. K.
Sorry, Jackie
It had to be that way.

Imagine there're no hippies.
You can do it if you try.
The world don't need another naked guy.
Someone had to die.

I shot John Lennon today.
Pulled the trigger,
And blew him away.
I shot John Lennon today
Sorry, Yoko
It had to be this way.


Happiness is stupid.
I'm anti-positive.
I just ran out of reasons to live.
Something had to give.

One more suicide.
The world laughed,
When I died.
One more suicide.
Sorry Mom,
I hope you're satisfied.
