i just shot john lennon lyrics – cranberries

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
what a sad and sorry and sickening night
what a sad and sorry and sickening sight
what a sad and sorry and sickening night

ah, ah ah ah, ah

i just shot john lennon
he said, “i just shot john lennon”
what a sad and sorry and sickening sight
what a sad and sorry and sickening night
what a sad and sorry and sickening sight
what a sad and sorry and sickening night

ah, ah ah ah, ah
