"Big Joe" (karaoke)

"Big Joe" (sheet music)

I dreamed I saw Big Joe last night alive as you and me.

Says I, "But Joe, you're ten years dead."

"I never died," says he. "I never died," says he.


"In Moscow, Joe, by God," says I, "they killed you in your bed.

They framed you at that congress, Joe."

Says Joe, "But I ain't dead." Says Joe, "But I ain't dead."


"Big Joe ain't dead," he says to me. "Big Joe ain't never died.

Where bureaucrats drive Cadillacs,

Big Joe is at their side. Big Joe is at their side."


And standing there as big as life and smiling with his eyes,

Joe says, "What I forgot to kill

Went on to terrorize. Went on to terrorize."


"From Brest-Litovsk to Vladivostok in every mine and mill,

Big Joe's old buddies run the show,

So I'm the leader still. So I'm the leader still."
