As the shots ring out in the dark of night

But somehow she thought she’d be all right
She pleads, God, please let them pray for me
But she’s just one casualty

PRESIDENT IS KILLED BY SNIPER DURING ADDRESS

As the bullet flies and the crowd cries out
He hopes the nation can do without
Its president, with all his power and clout

Because now he’s a casualty
