Verse 2 (Same Riffs as Verse 1)

"Got a ticket to a show.
Going to see him take a blow.
When the drunk one said,
'Cat Stevens was the greatest singer!'

And did you kick him in the head?
Did you see the blood run down?
Did you laugh at all when the
people walked right by and said aloud,'

"You gutter punks are all the same.
 Probably make twenty dollars 'fore the weekends over."
