carrollwsbPeople Who Died.


R.I.P. Jim Carroll, 1949-2009.


Teddy sniffing glue, he was 12 years old
Fell from the roof on East Two-nine
Cathy was 11 when she pulled the plug
On 26 reds and a bottle of wine
Bobby got leukemia, 14 years old
He looked like 65 when he died
He was a friend of mine


Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died


G-berg and Georgie let their gimmicks go rotten
So they died of hepatitis in upper Manhattan
Sly in Vietnam took a bullet in the head
Bobby OD’d on Drano on the night that he was wed
They were two more friends of mine
Two more friends that died


Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died


Mary took a dry dive from a hotel room
Bobby hung himself from a cell in the tombs
Judy jumped in front of a subway train
Eddie got slit in the jugular vein
And Eddie, I miss you more than all the others
And I salute you brother


Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died


Herbie pushed Tony from the Boys’ Club roof
Tony thought that his rage was just some goof
But Herbie sure gave Tony some bitchen proof
“Hey,” Herbie said, “Tony, can you fly?”
But Tony couldn’t fly, Tony died


Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died


Brian got busted on a narco rap
He beat the rap by rattin’ on some bikers
He said, “Hey, I know it’s dangerous, but it sure beats Riker’s”
But the next day he got offed by the very same bikers


Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died


Teddy sniffing glue, he was 12 years old

Cathy was 11 when she pulled the plug
On 26 reds and a bottle of wine

He was a friend of mine


Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died


G-berg and Georgie let their gimmicks go rotten

Sly in Vietnam took a bullet in the head
Bobby OD’d on Drano on the night that he was wed

And Eddie, I miss you more than all the others
And I salute you brother


Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died
