ElectricNeedle Room – John Kennedy

John Kennedy Lyrics


Privileged kid from Massachusetts
Roman Catholic, Irish ancestry
Loved football, history, and reading
Growing up well-traveled and well-rounded

He could talk to anyone
And he could solve most problems
Legacy overshadowed by his death
Most say hero, most say one of the best
They called him John F. Kennedy

Saved lives as commander in World War 2
Published author, Pulitzer Prize winner
His dad pressured him into politics
And boom! Young Congressman and later Senator

He had charisma and charm
He always seemed to say the just right things
He had passion and youthful energy
He gave Americans hope to chase dreams
Some called him Jack Kennedy

His presidency started out shaky
With the failed invasion of Bay of Pigs
Began sending troops to Vietnam
Just before he died he wanted them back home

He could talk to anyone
And he could solve most problems
Legacy overshadowed by his death
Most say hero, most say one of the best
They called him John F. Kennedy

When the country panicked
With the Cuban Missle Crisis
He was calm and collected
And he won with diplomacy

Of course he was far from perfect
Had affairs with various women
Today most believe a conspiracy
Was behind his assassination


He had charisma and charm
He always seemed to say the just right things
He had passion and youthful energy
He gave Americans hope to chase dreams
Some called him Jack Kennedy
They called him John F. Kennedy
