We even lost Superman

RIP Kenny, Christopher, Charles, Ray and Johnny.

George Harrison, John Paul and June Carter-Cash

Today Christopher would have been 69..

Oh, the last ten years, it’s been quite trip
Over thirty-six-hundred spins around without a cosmic slip
But within the realm of our atmosphere
We’re ’bout as out of whack as we’ve ever been in a million years

We watched the Y2K scare in a panic
An’ we watched as time proved Nostradamus wrong
An’ we watched as Mother Nature shook the planet
An’ cellular replaced the telephone
We lost Charlie Brown, Ray Charles an’ Johnny Cash
We even lost Superman, hmm

Well, the last ten years, look at the hills we’ve climbed
The best golfer’s black, the best rapper’s white an’ it’s about damn time
But we best beware, there’s a brand new fight you see
An’ I hate to say, we might be our own worst enemy

We watched Oklahoma sifting through the damage
An’ we watched a US President get caught
We watched shareholders watch their savings vanish
We all cried when we watched those towers fall
We lost Minnie Pearl, Ron Reagan and Sam I am
We even lost Superman

Expensive gas an’ free downloads
The dot-com boom, an’ reality shows
What’s gonna happen next
Is anybody’s guess

Satellite radio and hybrid cars
Hand-held computers an’ a trip to Mars
It’s all become a part of who we are
In the last ten years
We lost George Harrison, John Paul and June Carter-Cash
Hell, we even lost Superman
Gonna miss you, Chris
