Imagine

Today is the 27th anniversary of John Lennon’s assasination in New York City. Lennon, along with the Beatles are one of my favourite musical pieces. All day I’ve been listening to my CDs whenever I got a break from work. Below are some of the lyrics to a few of Lennons’ works that I like. In no particular order…

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 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 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

Women is the Nigger of the World

Woman is the nigger of
the world
Yes she is…think about it
Woman is the nigger of
the world
Think about it…do
something about it

We make her paint her
face and dance
If she won’t be slave ,we
say that she don’t love us
If she’s real, we say she’s
trying to be a man
While putting her down we
pretend that she is above us
Woman is the nigger of
the world…yes she is
If you don’t belive me take a
look to the one you’re with
Woman is the slaves of
the slaves
Ah yeah…better screem
about it
We make her bear and raise
our children
And then we leave her flat for
being a fat old mother hen
We tell her home is the only
place she would be
Then we complain that she’s
too unworldly to be our friend
Woman is the nigger of
the world…yes she is
If you don’t belive me take a
look to the one you’re with
Woman is the slaves of
the slaves
Yeah (think about it)

We insult her everyday on TV
And wonder why she has no
guts or confidence
When she’s young we kill her
will to be free
While telling her not to be so
smart we put her down for being so dumb
Woman is the nigger of
the world…yes she is
If you don’t belive me take a
look to the one you’re with
Woman is the slaves of
the slaves
Yes she is…if you belive me,
you better screem about it.

Repeat:
We make her paint her
face and dance
We make her paint her
face and dance We make her paint her
face and dance

Only People

Only people just know how to talk to people
Only people know just how to change the world
Only people realize the power of people
A million heads are better than one, so come on, get it on!

Well I know how we tried and the millions of tears that we cried
Now we are hipper we been thru the trip
And we can’t be denied with woman and man side by side
Make no mistake it’s our future we’re making,
bake the cake and eat it too!
We don’t want no pig brother scene

Well it’s long overdue there
ain’t nothing better to do
Now we are hipper we been thru the trip
We can fly right on thru, there’s nothing on earth we can do
Fish or cut bait it’s our future
e’re making all together now pull the chain!
We don’t want no pig brother scene

Singing power to the people

A million workers working for nothing
You better give ’em what they really own
We got to put you down
When we come into town

Singing power to the people

I gotta ask you comrades and brothers
How do you treat you own woman back home
She got to be herself
So she can free herself

Singing power to the people

Now, now, now, now
