JFK, Joan of Arc
Sit in the corner
Kissing in the dark -- Ellis Paul

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th U.S. President was born on this date in 1917. He was the first Roman Catholic President, first to be awarded the Purple Heart, first to serve in U.S. Navy, first to win a Pulitzer Prize (for his book Profiles in Courage), fourth U.S. President to be assassinated, second to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

Can anyone name the Ellis Paul song containing the lines of lyric above? I'll send a Shallow Hal DVD (featuring Ellis' song "Sweet Mistakes") to the first person with the correct answer. :)

Great going, Cathy! :D

Martyr's Lounge
from Ellis Paul Essentials

Leo's is the bar up in heaven
Where all the martyrs hang out
Gandhi staggers in with John Lennon
They'll start a bar fight, no doubt

When you lead, we follow
When you bleed, oh the masses feel your pain
Plant your seed, setting sunflowers
Growing inside our brains...

Now Jesus don't need no introduction
He's got a famous old man
And a party for twelve, I see Cobain, He's well
He's in the Angels that Fell,
A local touring bar band.

[repeat chorus]

JFK, Joan of Arc
Sit in the corner, kissing in the dark
Marilyn Monroe, Jacques Cousteau
Talk about the sharks they used to know...

[repeat chorus]
