    This was a song that came to me in the studio the morning after the famous Jerry Rubin party. I wrote it down quickly, told the musicians what key, and started to sing it. John came back in from the back room, and said "I don't want to hear this. It's too painful." So we stopped. But the song went on the album. He didn't want to mess with it. After he passed away, many fans wrote to me saying "Yoko, read this, you were writing about the vigil!" It was eerie. I was writing the song in 1972 about a vigil that actually happened in 1980!

    DEATH OF SAMANTHA

    People say I’m cool, ya, I’m a cool chick, baby.
    Every day I thank god that I’m such a cool chick, baby.

    When i'm on the phone, i thank god,
    My voice sounds smooth and clear without a trace of tear.
    When i'm at work, i thank god,
    I still have that smile Ma used to say lit her day.

    But something inside me, something inside me died that day.

    People say I’m cool, ya, I’m a cool chick, baby.
    Every day I thank god that I’m such a cool chick, baby.

    When i'm with people, i thank god,
    I can talk hip when i'm crying inside.
    When i'm with friends, i thank god,
    I can lit a cigarette when i'm choking inside.

    People say I’m cool, ya, I’m a cool chick, baby.
    Every day I thank god that I’m such a cool chick, baby.

    A friend lent me shades
    So i could hide my eyes that day.
    Was a snowy day,
    The shades have seen a lot of things i didn't want to know myself.

    Was like an accident, part of growing up, people tell me.
    But something inside me, something inside me died that day.

    What do you do-oo? what can you do?
    What do you do-oo? what can you do?


    From the Yoko Ono album 'Approximately Infinite Universe'.

    Approximately Infinite Universe is a double album by Yoko Ono, released in early 1973. It represents a departure from the experimental avant-garde rock of her first two albums towards a more conventional pop/rock sound, while also dabbling in feminist rock.

    The 1997 CD re-issue on Rykodisc added two acoustic demos of songs from this era that were later released on 1981's Season of Glass.

    Wayne Gabriel : guitar
    Joel Nohnn (anagram of John Lennon) : guitar, background vocals
