Joey Ramone Handwritten Lyrics

Joey Ramone’s handwritten lyrics to an unpublished song written on both sides of an unopened off-white 9 x 12 envelope from Corcorans of New York, bearing an affixed label addressed to “Jeff Hyman.” The untitled and unsigned lyrics, in full: “What’s with all / the violence / hatred / copycat killings / shootin’s in school / ain’t you got any / imagination gun violence / ain’t cool / what happened to / fist fightin / enraged—bout whats / goin on around here / this countrys / really fallen by / the fuckin / wayside waistside / or is it the media that inspires this jive / but I’m / glad to be alive / is it the government / It’s like a bad / movie on the / late late show.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the Joey Ramone Estate. An interesting opinion on the state of the country from the late great punk rocker. Pre-certified REAL.
