What is Bono saying in "Bullet" on the DVD?

Right after he says "What's my name?" Does anyone know? Anyone have a full transcript of his rap?

Thanks

probably "Mark Chapman" as it's what he said in all the other shows when he did that particular rant. Name of the guy who killed John Lennon, I believe.

Just a few days ago I tried to transcribe it.. it's basically:

.....
Bullet the blue
Bullet the blue

What a whole lotta loveÖ

This guy comes up to me see
His face red like a rose on a thorn bush
Like all the colors of a royal flush
And he's peeling off those dollar bills
Slapping them down right there in the Wal-Mart
Slapping Ďem right down
One hundred, two hundred
Three hundred, thatís allÖ thatís all..

And I can feel the cold steel
I can feel the cold steel
And I can make a wound that wonít heal
I can make a wound that wonít heal
38 millimetres, like the police
Iím at the door with John and Yoko living love and peace
And love and peace and love and peace feel like an old tune
A rerelease soon to be deceased

Pull the trigger rock and roll nigger, heís bigger than Jesus on a bumper sticker
Pull the trigger on the rock and roll nigger, bigger than Jesus on a bumper sticker
My pulse is racing, my eyes are chasing, for an autograph Iíve been waiting
?????, Thereís no escaping, history is taping
Hey John, war is over we donít need your help, Americaís making war on itself
Hey John, war is over we donít need your help, Americaís making war on itself
676,000 will go down in the streets of America with a bullet in the next 20 years
20 years these bitter tears, in a business of bitter tears
JohnÖ
Full body bags like Vietnam
Whatís my name?
Mark Chapman!
Whatís my name
Mark chapman
Mark chapman
Mark chapman
Mark chapman

And we run
Into the arms of America.

Nice job, SkeeK. I definitely like it, though most regular fans probably have no idea what it's all about. I think it's some pretty good improv.
