At last, the words of the world's worst song are on teh Interweb

"Superman was killed in Dallas
There's no love left in the palace
Someone took the Beatle's lead guitar "

and ends
"But I believe that love can save tomorrow
Believe the truth can set us free
Someone tried to tell us
But we nailed him to a cross
I guess it's still the way it used to be... "

with plenty more glurge in the middle. Called 'used to be' by Stevie Wonder and Charlene, as in the Charlene who sung the great 'anti-screwing around' song 'I've been to paradise but I've never been to me' (rendered by t__m__i as 'I've been to Birmingham but I've never got a seat'.

I heard it once on the radio many years ago played by Paul Gambaccini. From time to time I have looked for the lyrics but at last the web is up to the task. (I won't post a link as it is not quite clear whether the URL is persistent or a transient session ID, and I understand that as well as a global information resource there is a mechanism for searching it).
