Lyrics

Mother
05:37
Mother, you had me I never had you
I wanted you but you didn't want me
So I got to tell you
Goodbye, goodbye

Father, you left me but I never left you
I needed you but you didn't need me
So I just got to tell you
Goodbye, goodbye

Children, don't do what I have done
I couldn't walk so I tried to run
So I got to tell you
Goodbye, goodbye

Mama, don't go
Daddy, come home
Hold On
01:52
Hold on John, John hold on
It's gonna be alright
You gonna win the fight

Hold on Yoko, Yoko hold on
It's gonna be alright
You gonna make the flight

When you're by yourself
And there's no-one else
You just have yourself
And you tell yourself to hold on

Hold on world, world hold on
It's gonna be alright
You gonna see the light

When you're one really one
You get things done
Like they've never been done
So hold on
I Found Out
03:38
I told you before, stay away from my door
Don't give me that brother, brother, brother, brother
No!
I found out!

Now that I showed you what I've been through
Don't take nobody's word what you can do
There ain't no Jesus don't come from the sky
Now that I found out I know I can cry
I found out!

Some of you sitting there with your cock in your hand
Don't get you nowhere don't make you a man
I heard something about my ma and my pa
They didn't want me so they made me a star
I found out!

Old Hare Krishna got nothing on you
Just keep you crazy with nothing to do
Keep you occupied with pie in the sky
There ain't no guru who can see through your eyes
I found out!

I seen the junkies I've been through it all
I've seen religions from Jesus to Paul
Don't let them fool you with dope and cocaine
No one can harm you, feel your own pain
I found out!
Working Class Hero
03:51
Also available on:
As soon as your born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A Working Class Hero is something to be
A Working Class Hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and despise a fool
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
A Working Class Hero is something to be
A Working Class Hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for 20 odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
A Working Class Hero is something to be
A Working Class Hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religon, sex and T.V.
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still fucking peasents as far as I can see
A Working Class Hero is something to be
A Working Class Hero is something to be

There's room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A Working Class Hero is something to be
A Working Class Hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
Isolation
02:52
People say we got it made don't they know we're so afriad
Isolation
We're afraid to be alone, everbody got to have a home
Isolation

Just a boy and a little girl trying to change the whole wide world
Isolation
All the world is a little town, everybody trying to put us down
Isolation

I don't expect you to understand
After you caused so much pain
But then again you're not to blame
You're just a human, a victim of the insane

We're afraid of everyone, afraid of the sun
Isolation
The sun will never disappear, but the world my not have many years
Isolation
Remember
04:37
Remember when you were young
How the hero was never hung
Always got away
Remember the man
Used to leave you empty handed
Always, always let you down
If you ever change your mind
About leaving it all behind
Remember, remember today

Don't feel sorry
About the way it's gone
Don't you worry
About what you've done

Just remember
When you were small
How people seemed so tall
Always had their way
Do you remember your ma and pa
Just wishing for movie stardom
Always, always playing a part
If you ever feel sad
And the whole world is driving you mad
Remember, remember today

Don't feel sorry
About the way it's gone
Don't you worry
About what you've done

Remember, remember the fifth of November
Love
03:24
Love is real, real is love
Love is feeling, feeling love
Love is wanting to be loved

Love is touch, touch is love
Love is reaching, reaching love
Love is asking to be loved

Love is you
You and me
Love is knowing
We can be

Love is free, free is love
Love is living, living love
Love is needed to be loved
Well Well Well
06:00
Well well well, oh well
Well well well, oh well

I took my loved one out to dinner
So we could get a bite to eat
And though we both had been much thinner
She looked so beautiful I could eat her
Well well well, oh well

I took my loved one to a big field
So we could watch the English sky
We both were nervous, feeling guilty
And neither one of us knew just why
Well well well, oh well

We sat and talked of revolution
Just like two liberals in the sun
We talked of womens liberation
And how the hell we could get things done
Well well well, oh well

I took my loved one to a big field
So we could catch the English sky
We both were nervous feeling guilty
And neither one of us knew just why
Well, well, well, oh well
Look at Me
02:56
Look at me
Who am I supposed to be?
Who am I supposed to be?
Look at me
What am I supposed to be?
What am I supposed to be?
Look at me
Oh my love, oh my love

Here I am
What am I supposed to do?
What am I supposed to do?
Here I am
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
Here I am
Oh my love, oh my love

Look at me, oh please look at me, my love
Here I am
Oh my love

Who am I?
Nobody knows but me
Nobody knows but me
Who am I?
Nobody else can see
Just you and me
Who are we?
Oh my love, oh my love, oh my love
God
04:11
God is a concept by which
We measure our pain
I'll say it again
God is a concept by which
We measure our pain
I don't believe in magic
I don't believe in I-ching
I don't believe in Bible
I don't believe in Tarot
I don't believe in Hitler
I don't believe in Jesus
I don't believe in Kennedy
I don't believe in Buddha
I don't believe in Mantra
I don't believe in Gita
I don't believe in Yoga
I don't believe in Kings
I don't believe in Elvis
I don't believe in Zimmerman
I don't believe in Beatles
I just believe in me... and that reality

The dream is over
What can I say?
The Dream is Over
Yesterday
I was the Dreamweaver
But now I'm reborn
I was the Walrus
But now I'm John
And so dear friends
You'll just have to carry on
The Dream is over
My Mummy's Dead
00:59
My Mummy's Dead
I can't get it through my head
Though it's been so many years
My Mummy's Dead
I can't explain
So much Pain
I could never show it
My Mummy's Dead
