Lot 781: Handwritten lyrics to an apparently unpublished song by Joey Ramone.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 Corcorans of New York, addressed to "Jeff Hyman."

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.
