John Peel Is Dead


John Peel is dead
Stop all the clocks
Or at least turn off the radio
If John Peel is dead then
who will play the music

Did you know John Peel
at the break of day
Did you know John Peel
and his Radio way

But this is no good
And I can’t go on.
And there is no fun
in John Peel being dead

Time was 'only he wore black
The first, best, last pirate DJ of them all
Strolling in The King’s Road.
Fun, famous and fine hearted.

….......…..Thanks John
