Oh Johnny
do you miss your mother
do you miss your father
oh an johnny, do you miss me
oh and I was so hungry
I just wanted to attack
and I was so hungry
and that mean I'll never look back
Oh Johnny
sometimes I wonder
sometimes I wonder
and I 
and I wonder 
what it's like to die
no yah see I could'da been a star
I could'da been a whip
I tell why'a somethin' else right now
we could'da been 
sailing along on our ship
is this ring that he wore 
it's just another thing that he wore
but there's something about this ring I just can't ignore
so I keep it though I don't no were it's from
oh Johnny
do you miss all the old the old ladys
do you miss all of the crazys
oh an johnny, do you miss me
oh Johnny
do you miss your mother
do you miss your father
Oh johnny there's something that I'd like to know
and I, and I
could you tell me john, 
could you tell me what it's like to die
