Lyrics

Imagine
03:04
Also available on:
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 isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
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 Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.
Crippled Inside
03:49
You can shine your shoes and wear a suit,
You can comb your hair and look quite cute,
You can hide your face behind a smile,
One thing you can't hide is when your crippled inside,

You can wear a mask and paint you face,
You can call youself a new race,
You can Wear a coller and a tie,
One thing you can't hide is when your crippled inside,

Well you know your cat has nine lives babe,
Nine lives to it's self,
But you only got one and a dog's life ain't fun,
Mamma take alook outside,

You can go to church and sing a hymn,
Judge me by the colour of my skin,
You can live a lie untill you die,
One thing you can't hide is when you crippled inside.
Jealous Guy
04:15
I was dreaming of the past.
And my heart was beating fast,
I began to lose control,
I began to lose control,

I didn't mean to hurt you,
I'm sorry that I mad you cry,
I didn't want to hurt you,
I'm just a jealous guy,

I was feeling insecure,
You night not love me any more,

I was shivering inside,
I was shivering inside,

I was trying to catch your eyes,
Thought that you were trying to hide,
I was swallowing my pain,
I was swallowing my pain.
It's So Hard
02:28
You got to live
You got to love
You got to be somebody
You got to shove
But it's hard
It's really hard
Sometimes I feel like going down

You go to eat
You got to drink
You got to feel something
You got to worry
It's so hard
It's really hard
Sometimes I feel like going down

But when it's good
It's oh so good
And when I hold you in my arms baby
Sometimes I feel like going down

You got to run
You got to hide
You got to keep your woman satisfied
But it's so hard
It's really hard
Sometimes I feel like going down
I Don't Wanna Be a Soldier Mama
06:08
Well, I don't wanna be a soldier mama, I don't wanna die
Well, I don't wanna be a sailor mama, I don't wanna fly
Well, I don't wanna be a failure mama, I don't wanna cry
Well, I don't wanna be a soldier mama, I don't wanna die

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no

Well, I don't wanna be a rich man mama, I don't wanna cry
Well, I don't wanna be a poor man mama, I don't wanna fly
Well, I don't wanna be lawyer mama, I don't wanna lie
Well, I don't wanna be a soldier mama, I don't wanna die

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no

Well, I don't wanna be a beggar mama, I don't wanna die
Well, I don't wanna be a thief now mama, I don't wanna fly
Well, I don't wanna be a church man mama, I don't wanna cry
Well, I don't wanna be a soldier mama, I don't wanna die

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
Gimme Some Truth
03:17
I'm sick and tired of hearing things
from uptight, short sighted, narrow minded hypocritics

All I want is the truth,
Just gimme 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

I'm sick to death of seeing things
from tight liped, condecending, mommies little chauvinists

All I want is the truth,
just gimme some truth

I've had enough watching scenes of
schizophrenic, ego-centric, paranoic, prima donnas

All I want is the truth,
Just gimme some truth
Oh My Love
02:46
Oh my love, for the first time in my life
My eyes are wide open
Oh my lover, for the first time in my life
My eyes can see

I see the wind, oh I see the trees
Everything is clear in my heart
I see the clouds, oh I see the sky
Everything is clear in our world

Oh my love, for the first time in my life
My mind is wide open
oh my lover, for the first time in my life
My mind can feel

I feel the sorrow, oh I feel dreams
Everything is clear in my heart
I feel the life, oh I feel love
Everything is clear in our world
How Do You Sleep?
05:36
So Sgt. Pepper took you by suprise
You'd 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

How do you sleep?
How do you sleep at night?

You live with straights who tell you you was king
Jump when your momma tell you anything
The only thing you've done was yesterday
And since you're gone you're just another day

How do you sleep?
How do you sleep at night?

A pretty face may last a year or two
But pretty soon they'll see what you can do
The sound you make is muzak to my ears
You must have learnt something in all those years

How do you sleep?
How do you sleep at night?
How?
03:45
How can I go forward when I don't know which way I'm facing?
How can I go forward when I don't know which way to turn?
How can I go forward into something that I'm not sure of?
Oh no, oh no

How can I have feeling if I don't know if it's a feeling?
How can I feel something if I just don't know how to feel?
How can I have feelings when my feelings have always been denied?
Oh no, oh no

How can I give love when I don't know what it is I'm giving?
How can I give love when I just don't know how to give?
How can I give love when love is something I aint never had?
Oh no, oh no

You know life can be long
And you have got to be so strong
And the world is so tough sometimes I feel I have had enough
Oh no, oh no

How can we go forward when we don't know which way we're facing?
How can we go forward when we don't know which way to turn?
How go forward into something we're not sure of?
Oh no, oh no
Oh Yoko!
04:22
In the middle of the night
In the middle of the night I call your name
Oh Yoko, oh Yoko
My love will turn you on

In the middle of the bath
In the middle of the bath I call your name
Oh Yoko, oh Yoko
My love will turn you on

In the middle of a shave
In the middle of a shve I call your name
Oh Yoko, oh Yoko
My love will turn you on

In the middle of a dream
In the middle of a dream I call your name
Oh Yoko, o Yoko
My love will turn you on

In the middle of a cloud
In the middle of a cload I call your name
Oh Yoko, oh Yoko
My love will turn you on

Oh Yoko
