lee harvey oswald skedaddled to texas

in order to try out his trigger reflexes
the government trained him to be a sharp shooter
and shooting as well was a man named zapruder
but abe had a camera and lee had a weapon
and up in a warehouse lee harvey went steppin'
a coupla feet left and he would have hit jackie
and that would have been both obtrusive and tacky
while abe was intent on his film by the highway
a crack of the rifle and it was goodbye, babe
the crowd started panicking , frightful and nervous
while jackie was grabbed by the secretive service
then off to the doc, though the prez was not livin'
so out came a priest and the last rites were given
then lee left the loft and he started to zip it
but slowed down enough to shoot officer tippit
the cops took the hint and they started to chase him
so lee made a plan that would try and erase 'em
ducked into a movie but skipped on the ticket
the cops sauntered in and decided to check it
they say "war is hell", so is being arrested
they probed him a bit but no tale was digested
then lee took a bullet provided by ruby
if lee was a patsy, then jack was a booby
a short four years later, jack gave in to cancer
and fifty years later we still have no answer
