"Death Of Samantha" as written by and Yoko Ono....
Two, one, two, three, four.
People say I'm cool,
Ya', I'm a cool, chick baby.
Ev'ry day I thank god
That I'm such a cool, chick baby.

When I'm on the phone, I thank god,
My voice sounds smooth and clear without a trace of tear.
When I'm at work, I thank god,
I still have that smile ma used to say lit her day.

But something inside me, something inside me died that day.
People say I'm cool,
Ya', I'm a cool, chick baby.
Ev'ry day I thank god
That I'm such a cool, chick baby.

When I'm with people, I thank god,
I can talk hip when I'm crying inside.

When I'm with friends, I thank god,
I can lit a cigarette when I'm choking inside.

People say I'm cool,
Ya', I'm a cool, chick baby.
Ev'ry day I thank god
That I'm such a cool, chick baby.

A friend lent me shades
So I could hide my eyes that day.
Was a snowy day,
The shades have seen a lot of things I didn't want to know myself.

Was like an accident, part of growing up,
People tell me.

But something inside me, something inside me died that day.
What do you do-oo? what can you do?
What do you do-oo? what can you do?

    General CommentYoko suffered at least two 2nd trimester miscarriages. I've also lost two babies, and this song, to me, is so clearly about trying to smile and be strong on the outside and not show the terrible pain and grief of losing a child that noone else has seen. (That even now Yoko can still be so strong after all the horrible things that have happened in her life is just amazing.)
