“Take Another Little Piece of My Heart, Now, Baby”

Janis Joplin’s Dead — & That Ain’t All

I hear-telled,
Janis Joplin’s dead.
How could that happen?
But that’s what I read . . .

Guess she hur-ried, her life whole through.
Not a whole lotta love — she had too much to do.

Dollar is a Dollar,
Dime is a Dime;
One thing she ain’t got?
She ain’t got Time.

Booth shot Lincoln,
Right in the head;
Martin & John?
Also are dead.

Saints aren’t hur-ried, but some people are:
Keep their message — from goin’ too far.

Dollar is a Dollar,
& Dime is a Dime;
One thing Saints ain’t got?
They ain’t got Time.

What’s about
You & Me?
Runnin’ ’round
Like-a dog with fleas!

Dollar is a Dollar,
Dime is a Dime;
One thing we ain’t got?
Ain’t got Time.

Don’t be hur-ried, ’til your life is through.
Gotta whole lotta love — & lots-a livin’ to do.

Dollar is a Dollar,
Dime is a Dime;
One thing ya ain’t got?
Ya ain’t got Time.
