Pop star dies in the Echo
Pop star dies in the Echo!
Pop star dies in the Echo!
The bus was Late and all I could hear was,
 
Pop star dies in the Echo!
Pop star dies in the Echo!
 
I began to think he really had died in the Echo
Crushed between the used car ads and the obituaries,
Staining the paper with unsung notes
and unwritten hits.
Quite obscuring
the fact that Mary Jane was dead And sadly missed by all.
All, that is, except the editor
Mary Jane's not news.
 
Pop star dies in the Echo!
Pop star dies in the Echo!
Pop star dies in the Echo!
