The Day John Kennedy Died (Live Album Version) - Lou Reed

I dreamed I was the president of

these United States

 

I dreamed I replaced ignorance,

stupidity and hate

 

I dreamed the perfect union

and a perfect law, undenied

 

And most of all I dreamed

I forgot the day John Kennedy died

 

I dreamed that I could do the job

that others hadn't done

 

I dreamed that I was uncorrupt

 

and fair to everyone

 

I dreamed I wasn't gross or base,

a criminal on the take

 

And most of all I dreamed

I forgot the day John Kennedy died

 

Oh, the day John Kennedy died

 

Oh, the day John Kennedy died

 

I remember where I was that day,

I was upstate in a bar

 

The team from the university

was playing football on TV

 

Then the screen went dead

and the announcer said,

"There's been a tragedy

 

the president's been shot

can unconfirmed reports

and he may be dead or dying."

 

Talking stopped,

someone shouted, "What!?"

I ran out to the street

 

People were gathered everywhere saying,

did you hear what they said on TV

 

And then a guy in a Porsche

with his radio hit his horn

 

and told us the news

 

He said, "The president's dead,

he was shot twice in the head

in Dallas, and they don't know by whom."

 

I dreamed I was the president of

these United States

 

I dreamed I was young and smart

and it was not a waste

 

I dreamed that there was a point to life

and to the human race

 

I dreamed that

I could somehow comprehend that someone

shot him in the face

 

Oh, the day John Kennedy died

 

Oh, the day John Kennedy died

 

Oh, the day John Kennedy died

 

Oh, the day John Kennedy died
