(Rick Springfield/Matt Bissonette)

[John Lennon was brought into the emergency room just before 11:00 pm, he was dead on arrival]

Dear disillusioned boy
Who taught you to destroy
Everything that’s beautiful
Everything that shines
You’re the monster underneath your bed

And I’ll, I’ll give you one warning shot
I’ll give you two warning shots
I’ll give you three warning shots to the head

I know you
I give Lucifer his due
He promised you, you’d be legit
But everybody thinks you’re shit
I hope every dream you dream you dream in red

And I’ll, I’ll give you one warning shot
I’ll give you two warning shots
I’ll give you three warning shots to the head

Yea you, you caught Johnny on the spot
But no one gives you a second thought
And I’ll, I’ll give you three warning shots to the head

Standing on a New York sidewalk with a loaded gun

Happiness is a warm gun….

Mommy’s depressed little joy
Holden Caulfield’s stable boy
Hey come on wake up you sleepy head
(gunshot)

And I’ll, I’ll give you one warning shot
I’ll give you two warning shots
I’ll give you three warning shots to the head

You’ve got empty brain and crazy thoughts
Your voices had you tied in knots
and I’ll, I’ll give you three warning shots to the head……to the head
