Annotationen

Eine Grunge-Mörderballade, das Lied über die Nacht, in der John Lennon erschossen wurde (8. Dezember 1980). Mark David Chapman wird zitiert, der auf die Frage, ob er wisse, was er getan habe, sagte: «I just shot John Lennon» – «Ich habe eben John Lennon erschossen!» Die Band kommentiert: «Was für ein trauriger, trüber und widerlicher Anblick.» Am Ende des Stücks hört man die fünf Pistolenschüsse.

Lyrics

It was the 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 and 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 It was a sad and sorry and sickening night Oh a sad and sorry and sickening sight It was a sad and sorry and sickening night "I Just Shot John Lennon!" He said, "I Just Shot John Lennon!" What a sad and sorry and sickening sight It was a sad and sorry and sickening night Oh a sad and sorry and sickening sight It was a sad and sorry and sickening night
