MNTB Greatest Lyrics – Jeremy

This song is based on Jeremy Wade Delle, a 15 year old who shot himself in front of his English class on January 8, 1991. Delle was described by schoolmates as “real quiet” and known for “acting sad.” After coming in to class late that morning, Delle was told to get an admittance slip from the school office. He left the classroom, and returned with a .357 Magnum revolver. Delle walked to the front of the classroom, announced “Miss, I got what I really went for”, put the barrel of the firearm in his mouth, and pulled the trigger before his teacher or classmates could react.

At home, drawing pictures of mountain tops
With him on top lemon yellow sun, arms raised in a v
And the dead lay in pools of maroon below
Daddy didn’t give attention
Oh, to the fact that mommy didn’t care
King Jeremy the wicked…oh, ruled his world…
Jeremy spoke in class today…

Clearly I remember pickin’ on the boy
Seemed a harmless little fuck
Ooh, but we unleashed a lion…
Gnashed his teeth and bit the recess lady’s breast…
How can I forget?
And he hit me with a surprise left
My jaw left hurtin’…ooh, dropped wide open
Just like the day…oh, like the day I heard

Daddy didn’t give affection, no…
And the boy was something that mommy wouldn’t wear
King Jeremy the wicked…oh, ruled his world
Jeremy spoke in class today…

Try to forget this…try to forget this…
Try to erase this…try to erase this…
from the blackboard…
