Here are my favorite lyrics from John. When it came to writing songs and coming up with great lyrics, nobody could twist words around and put them back together like John did. 


From............... Imagine

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...

From..............Crippled Inside

You can go to church and sing a hymn
You can judge me by the color of my skin
You can live a lie until you die
One thing you can't hide
Is when you're crippled inside

From.............Give Me Some Truth

I've had enough of reading things
By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth


No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son of tricky dicky
Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of hope
Money for dope, money for rope

From............How Do You Sleep?

So Sgt. Pepper took you by surprise
You better see right through that mother's eyes
Those freaks was right when they said you was dead
The one mistake you made was in your head  

You live with straights who tell you you was king
Jump when your momma tell you anything
The only thing you done was yesterday
And since you're gone you're just another day
Ah, how do you sleep?

From.........................Working Class Hero

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be

From....................Give Peace A Chance

Ev'rybody's talking about Ministers,
Sinisters, Banisters and canisters
Bishops and Fishops and Rabbis and pop eyes,
And bye bye - bye byes. 


God is a concept by which we measure our pain

I don't believe in Elvis
I don't believe in Zimmerman
I don't believe in Beatles
I just believe in me

From................Strawberry Fields Forever

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It's getting hard to be someone, but it all works out
It doesn't matter much to me


No one, I think, is in my tree
I mean, it must be high or low
That is, you can't, you know, tune in, but it's alright
That is, I think it's not too bad

From...................A Day In The Life

I saw the news today, oh, boy
Four-thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall

From..............The Ballad Of John & Yoko

Made a lightning trip to Vienna
Eating chocolate cakes in a bag
The newspapers said
"She's gone to his head
"They look just like two gurus in drag"


Christ, you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're gonna crucify me

From..........I Am The Walrus

I am he as you are he as you are me
and we are all together


Expert, texpert choking smokers
don't you think the joker laughs at you


I am the eggman
They are the eggmen
I am the walrus
Goo goo g' joob

From.............Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

Picture yourself on a boat in a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes


Newspaper taxies appear on the shores
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds
and you're gone

From.............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


And when I awoke I was alone
This bird had flown
So I lit a fire
Isn't it good Norwegian wood?


She's the kind of girl
you want so much it makes you sorry
Still you don't regret a single day


When you say she's looking good
She acts as if it's understood
she's cool, ooh, oo, oo, oo
Girl,  girl,  girl

From...........The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill

He went out tiger hunting with his elephant and gun
In case of accidents he always took his mom
He's the all American bullet-headed saxon mother's son

From..............Yer Blues

The eagle picks my eye
The worm he licks my bone
I feel so suicidal
Just like Dylan's Mr. Jones
Lonely wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why.

From........I'm So Tired

I'm so tired, I'm feeling so upset
Although I'm so tired I'll have another cigarette
And curse Sir Walter Raleigh
He was such a stupid get.

From........................Come Together

He wear no shoeshine he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger, he shoot coca-cola
He say "I know you, you know me"


He roller-coaster, he got early warning
He got muddy water, he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
