Die A Hero.

Unpublished Works, © 1981, BillyPauleyJr.*

Die A Hero.

Eleven o'clock; in the city,
Mr. Lennon is goin' home,
There's a man in the bushes,
Mr. Lennon, he doesn't know,
The next time we hear his name,
Mr. Lennon, he will be dead,
Tho' it's sad, we can't forget,
What he meant when he said,

When I'm gone please don't think me bad,
Don't think me lonely, don't think of me sad,
'Cos I've been happy livin' life with Yoko,
Now I don't want to die,
Don't want to die,
Don't want to die... a hero,

The clock has stopped in the city,
All the people begin to cry,
For they don't understand,
Why their hero had to die,
The next time we hear voices,
They'll be repeating historic dates,
And the men in the paper,
Will blame everything except fate,

When I'm gone please don't think me bad,
Don't think me lonely, don't think of me sad,
'Cos I've been happy livin' life with Yoko,
Now I don't want to die,
Don't want to die,
Don't want to die... a hero,

Eleven o'clock; in the city,
Mr. Lennon is going home,
There's a God in the heavens,
Mr. Lennon; I'm sure he knows,
The next time he hears his name,
He'll be called into the gates,
And I hope to be like him,
In many different ways,
Like when he said,

When I'm gone please don't think me bad,
Don't think me lonely, don't think of me sad,
'Cos I've been happy livin' life with Yoko,
Now I don't want to die,
Don't want to die,
Don't want to die... a hero,

When I'm gone please don't think me bad,
Don't think me lonely, don't think of me sad,
'Cos I've been happy livin' life with Jamie,
Now I don't want to die,
Don't want to die,
Don't want to die... like Johnny,

Our life; together,
Was so precious; together,
O', yeah (o' yeah) (o' yeah); o', yeah,
Starting over,
Do-do do do do do do do do do; aha; aha; aha; aha-ah,
All you need is love,
All you need is love,
All you need is love,
Love; love is all you need (love is all you need),
Love is all you need (love is all you need),
Love is all you need (love is all you need; o' yeah),
We love you, yeah, yeah yeah,
We love you, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Well-well, it's all you need,
It's all you need,
Love.
