"7-11" as written by and Douglas Colvin Dee Dee Ramone....
I met her at the 7-11
Now I'm in seventh heaven
Tell me, tell me
Can this be true
I never thought I'd ever
Meet a girl like you

She was standing by the Space Invaders
So I said can I see you later
Yeah we went for a little spin
Down to the Holiday Inn

We was young and in love
We was young and in love
And you're the only girl
I'm ever thinking of

We went down to the record swap
The kids were dancing
To the blitzkrieg bop
Bop-shoo-wop shoo-wop shoo-wop
Bop-shoo-wop shoo-wop shoo-wop

What ever happened to the radio
And where did all the fun songs go
Summer fun, with the Beach Boys on
But we all know what went wrong

We was young and in love
We was young and in love
And you're the only girl
I'm ever dreaming of

And so we went down to the dance
Which turned into a whole romance
And after just one night
I never knew that things could be so right

I kissed her and hugged her
And I said good-bye
Last thing I knew
She wouldn't make it alive
Oncoming car went out of control
It crushed my baby
And it crushed my soul
Now all I've got is sorrow and pain
Standing out here in the rain
The crash, shattering glass
The sirens, and pain
Is driving me insane oh-yeah

We was young and in love
We was young and in love
And you're the only girl
I'm ever thinking of
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yea

    General CommentThis song totally rocks (kinda cliche cuz so many Ramones songs rock)

    This song has a lot of range to it, and the Ramones were able to capture all of the emotions perfectly. It begins like that other amazing Ramones song "Oh Oh I lover her so" but then takes a tragic turn and ends up like that J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers song "Last Kiss" (Pearl Jam also does a strong cover of that flawless song).

    RIP Johnny, Dee Dee, Joey. Yer all too tough to die

    General Commentthis song shreds me to pieces. many people do think the ramones have no clue, and only sing about .. well.. punk-ish things. what they don't know, is that they made music so much more than just taking something shitty and celebrating it.. in fact, they took that and made it something beautiful.
    though, i'm pretty sure johnny wasn't a big fan of the more pop-ish songs from the ramones, during the while that joey was.. i do hope them along with dee dee have found their place.

    General Commentwow. what a masterpiece of later ramones. Definately pays homage to the early sixties hit Last Kiss. Also found the several references to earlier Ramones to be nice. Like the electronic Echos a after blitzkreig bop-b-b-op -op op. This song along the lines of Dany Says. Hard to believe this was written by the same guy who gave us 53rd and 3rd and chinese rocks
