THE BALLAD OF JOHN AND PATSY
(apologies to John Lennon's "Ballad of John and Yoko")


Finally my life has a sole purpose

Find the killer of JonBenet
He still lives in town but I'm not sticking around
I'm searching from Atlanta GA

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're gonna prosecute me

Blame it on a small foreign faction
See if anyone takes the bait
They say it was me but can't they all plainly see
I swear I didn't even participate

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're gonna prosecute me

Playing up our story in the friendly press
Here's some photos of our family
Last night the wife said, "Can't write left-handed...
Wish they wouldn't photograph my knees."
...wait!

Try to get the public on my side
Granting interviews to a few
I'll give it some spin you see the fix that I'm in
Just what do they expect a father to do?

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're gonna prosecute me
