Harvey O. didn't have no daddy 
He never caught a break, he never drove a Caddy 
Joined the Marines to learn a skill 
And that he did, he learned how to kill 

At eleven miles an hour 
Such a deadly speed 
Eleven miles an hour 
At the time and place agreed 
They pulled their limousine 
Down Elm Street slow and clean 
Lead fell like a shower 
At eleven miles an hour 

JFK went down to Dallas 
To cool some heels in the oil palace 
Unfriendly country, but he was not afraid 
He would wave to the people 
>From a passing motorcade 

At eleven miles an hour 
Such a deadly speed 
Eleven miles an hour 
At the time and place agreed 
They pulled their limousine 
Down Elm Street slow and clean 
Lead fell like a shower 
At eleven miles an hour 

JFK told Kruschev I'll leave Castro alone 
If you take away those missles 
They're too damn close to home 
The CIA, the Cubans and the underworld bosses 
Decided that was it, they had to cut their losses 

At eleven miles an hour 
Such a deadly speed 
Eleven miles an hour 
At the time and place agreed 
They pulled their limousine 
Down Elm Street slow and clean 
Lead fell like a shower 
At eleven miles an hour 

Lee Harvey O. was made to order 
A radical nut, a drifter and a boarder 
Earl Warren got a version out fast 
America was happy, the patsy had been cast 

At eleven miles an hour 
Such a deadly speed 
Eleven miles an hour 
At the time and place agreed 
They pulled their limousine 
Down Elm Street slow and clean 
Lead fell like a shower 
At eleven miles an hour 
Eleven miles an hour
