"Glad To See You Go" as written by Joey Ramone, Johnny Ramone, Dee Dee Ramone and Tommy Ramone....
Gonna take a chance on her one bullet in the cylinder
And in a moment of passion get the glory like Charles Manson

Gonna smile, I'm gonna laugh you're gonna get a blood bath
And in a moment of passion get the glory like Charles Manson

You gotta go go go go goodbye glad to see you go go go go goodbye
Now I know the score I don't need you anymore don't want
You cause you're a bore I need somebody good I need a miracle
Should I take a chance on her? one bullet in the cylinder

Gonna smile, I'm gonna laugh they're gonna want my autograph
And in a moment of passion get the glory like Charles Manson

You gotta go go go go goodbye Glad to see you go go go go goodbye

    General Comment"Glad To See You Go" was written by Dee Dee (lyrics) and Joey (music) about Dee Dee's ex-girlfriend Connie Gripp. Connie was a heroin-addicted stripper who constantly fought with Dee Dee, and once stabbed him in the ass with a broken bottle. According to Arturo Vega, after their last fight, Connie stormed out cursing at Dee Dee, and Dee Dee yelled out the window: "I'm glad to see you go!"

    General CommentEr ... boy, did I have the lyrics all wrong! Applause, please -- I thought it was "one poor little silly girl" not "one bullet in the cylinder".

    I think it's about glorifying violence (he's going to shoot everyone and people are going to want his autograph) and about the way criminals are elevated to celebrety status, and are sort of "worshipped" for the bad they've done.

    General CommentI covered this song and dedicated it to a former friend who turned against me

    thank God she's moving to Signapore in 10 days...

    and a little shout-out to her;

    "You're gonna want my autograph!!!!"

    Glad to see her go.

    General CommentAccording to the book Please Kill Me, Connie was a prostitute, not a stripper.
