Are you soundly sleeping tonight, oh John?
Since you have gone

Are you soundly sleeping tonight, oh John?
Be glad that you've gone.
You know that you can't ever come home -
no not again.
Please don't dream tonight of the ones
who depended upon
the boy so handsome, so winsome and strong.
You know that they live in the past
and oh John, that's where they belong.
