I drank myself to sleep
Every night of last week
Then I walked to the Boscov's store
To buy a case of Crazy Horse

Then I dreamt I stayed in the Sterling
In the same bed as Kennedy
Then Jackie and Johnny and Caroline
Would ride up the mainline

Then the last stop's in Carbondale
Where John once found some German tale
And his Irish and German son
Wrote a story called "Killdragon"

It was a huge hit in the youth group scene
'Cuz it pledged, to all, celibacy

I saw him comin' (x4)

This year I'm gonna work on stability
This year I'm gonna try and keep my friends close to me
And I hope one day to have half as much of my grandpa's integrity
And I saw him comin'

I saw Kennedy in the hotel Sterling
And he told me everything that I knew we'd both been feeling
So we sat on the ledge and looked down toward the West

And that's where I drank myself to sleep
Just to get some company
That's where I drank myself to sleep
Just to get some company

(I saw him comin'...)
