LENNON, John


Imagine

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today . . .

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace . . .

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world . . .

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

You've Got to Hide Your Love Away

Here I stand head in hand

Turn my face to the wall

If she's gone I can't go on

Feeling two foot small

Everywhere people stare

Each and every day

I can see them laugh at me

And I hear them say

Hey, you've got to hide your love away

Hey, you've got to hide your love away

How can I even try?

I can never win

Hearing them, seeing them

In the state I'm in

How could she say to me

Love will find a way?

Gather round, all you clowns

Let me hear you say

Hey, you've got to hide your love away

Hey, you've got to hide your love away


Norwegian Wood

I once had a girl,
Or should I say
She once had me.
She showed me her room,
Isn't it good?
Norwegian wood.
She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere,
So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair.
I sat on a rug
Biding my time,
Drinking her wine.
We talked until two,
And then she said,
'It's time for bed'.
She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh,
I told her I didn't, and crawled off to sleep in the bath.
And when I awoke
I was alone,
This bird had flown,
So I lit a fire,
Isn't it good?
Norwegian wood.


Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds

Picture yourself in a boat on a river

With tangerine trees and marmalade skies

Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly

A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green

Towering over your head

Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes

And she's gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain

Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies

Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers

That grow so incredibly high

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore

Waiting to take you away

Climb in the back with your head in the clouds

And you're gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Picture yourself on a train in a station

With plasticine porters with looking glass ties

Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile

The girl with kaleidoscope eyes


Across the Universe

Words are flowing out

Like endless rain

Into a paper cup

They slither wildly

As they slip away

Across the universe

Pools of sorrow

Waves of joy

Are drifting through my opened mind

Possessing and caressing me

Jai Guru Deva, om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light

Which dance before me

Like a million eyes

They call me on and on

Across the universe

Thoughts meander

Like a restless wind

Inside a letter box

They tumble blindly

As they make their way

Across the universe

Jai Guru Deva, om

Nothing's gonna change my world
…..

Sounds of laughter

Shades of life

Are ringing through my opened ears

Inciting and inviting me

Limitless, undying love

Which shines around me

Like a million suns

It calls me on and on

Across the universe

Jai Guru Deva, om

Nothing's gonna change my world
