"Neal Cassady Drops Dead" as written by and James Martin Boorer Steven Morrissey....
Neal Cassady drops dead
And Allen Ginsberg’s tears shampoo his beard
Neal Cassady drops dead
And Allen Ginsberg’s lips tighten and thin

Neal Cassady drops dead
And Allen Ginsberg’s hosed down in a barn
Neal Cassady drops dead
And Allen Ginsberg’s howl becomes a growl

Everyone has babies
Babies full of rabies
Rabies full of scabies
Scarlet has a fever
Ring is full of ringworm
Angel of disdain
Poor little fella has got rubella

Liver full of fungus
Junior full of gangrene
Mine is melanoma
Tike full of gripe
Whippersnapper’s scurvy
Urchin made of acne
Get that thing away from me

Victim, or life’s adventurer
Which of the two are you?
Victim or life’s adventurer
Which of the two are you?
