Lot 7496: Handwritten lyrics to an apparently unpublished song by Joey Ramone. The untitled and unsigned lyrics are written on both sides of a 9 x 12 unopened envelope from from Corcorans of New York, addressed to "Jeff Hyman." Ramone writes, in full (with grammar and spelling retained): "What's with all / the violence / hatred / copycat killings / shootings in school / aint you got any / imagination gun violence / aint cool / what happened to / fist fightin / enraged—bout whats / goin on around here / this countrys / really fallen by / the fuckin / wayside / or is it the media that inspires this jive, but I'm / glad to be alive / is it the government / It's like a bad / movie on the / late late show." An interesting opinion of Ramone's on the state of the country. In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the Joey Ramone Estate.
