"11 MPH [Abe Zapp Ruder Version]" as written by and Don Edward/was Fagenson....
Harvey O. didn't have no daddy
He never caught a break, he never drove a Caddy
Joined the Marines to learn a skill
And that he did, he learned how to kill

At eleven miles an hour
Such a deadly speed
Eleven miles an hour
At the time and place agreed
They pulled their limousine
Down Elm Street slow and clean
Lead fell like a shower
At eleven miles an hour

JFK went down to Dallas
To cool some heels in the oil palace
Unfriendly country, but he was not afraid
He would wave to the people
>From a passing motorcade

At eleven miles an hour
Such a deadly speed
Eleven miles an hour
At the time and place agreed
They pulled their limousine
Down Elm Street slow and clean
Lead fell like a shower
At eleven miles an hour

JFK told Kruschev I'll leave Castro alone
If you take away those missles
They're too damn close to home
The CIA, the Cubans and the underworld bosses
Decided that was it, they had to cut their losses

At eleven miles an hour
Such a deadly speed
Eleven miles an hour
At the time and place agreed
They pulled their limousine
Down Elm Street slow and clean
Lead fell like a shower
At eleven miles an hour

Lee Harvey O. was made to order
A radical nut, a drifter and a boarder
Earl Warren got a version out fast
America was happy, the patsy had been cast

At eleven miles an hour
Such a deadly speed
Eleven miles an hour
At the time and place agreed
They pulled their limousine
Down Elm Street slow and clean
Lead fell like a shower
At eleven miles an hour
Eleven miles an hour
