“Got a craving for a feeling,” writes Ramone, “Its been a long long long time”

Joey Ramone’s handwritten working lyrics to an unpublished song on an off-white 11 x 14 sheet. The unsigned lyrics, in full: “Got a cravin / gotta cravin for a feelin / got a craving for a feeling / Its been a long long long time / Cant let it get me down / Its been a long time since I heard that sound / did people quit tryin / been a long long long time / ride ride ride the rush / on the fluffy cloud where the kick is lush / ride ride ride the rush.” Ramone vertically adds two possible titles on the left side, “Crave That” and “Am I the Only One Around.” Affixed to a same-size sheet of cardboard, with the reverse bearing a matted and ripped photo of a punk band. In very good condition, with scattered rubbing and staining and surface loss to lower right corner tip. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the Joey Ramone Estate. Pre-certified REAL.
