John Lennon, born in 1942, was an English singer/songwriter, artist and peace activist.


Although best known as the founder of The Beatles, he recorded many hits on his own during a successful solo career in the years after the band broke up.


He was married twice and had two sons.


In addition to making music, John and his second wife, Yoko Ono, spent several years staging odd public demonstrations of performance art, in support of various political causes.


On December 8, 1980, one month after the release of his long-awaited comeback album, John Lennon, age 40, was shot to death at the entrance to his apartment building in New York City.

His killer was a mentally ill fan who had gotten his autograph earlier that day. 




John Lennon Lyrics

a

Ballad of John and Yoko


Standing on the dock at southampton

Trying to get to holland or france

The man in the mac

Said, youve gotta go back

You know, they didn't even give us a chance

Christ, you know it aint easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me

Finally made the plane into paris

Honeymooning down by the seine

Peter brown called to say

You can make it okay

You can get married in gibraltar, near spain

Christ, you know it aint easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me

Drove from paris to the amsterdam hilton

Talking in our beds for a week

The newspeople said

Say, whatre you doing in bed?

I said, were only trying to get us some peace 

Christ, you know it aint easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me

Made a lightning trip to vienna

Eating chocolate cakes in a bag

The newspapers said

Shes gone to his head

They look just like two gurus in drag

Christ, you know it aint easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me

Caught the early plane back to london

Fifty acrons tied in a sack

The men from the press

Said, we wish you success

Its good to have the both of you back

Christ, you know it aint easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me




Beautiful Boy

Close your eyes

Have no fear

The monster's gone

He's on the run and your daddy's here

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

Beautiful boy

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

Beautiful boy

Before you go to sleep

Say a little prayer

Every day in every way

It's getting better and better

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

Beautiful boy

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

Beautiful boy

Out on the ocean sailing away

I can hardly wait

To see you come of age

But i guess we'll both just have to be patient

'cause it's a long way to go

A hard row to hoe

Yes it's a long way to go

But in the meantime

Before you cross the street

Take my hand

Life is what happens to you

While you're busy making other plans

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

Beautiful boy

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

Beautiful boy

Before you go to sleep

Say a little prayer

Every day in every way

It's getting better and better

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

Beautiful boy

Darling, darling, darling

Darling sean



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



Watching the Wheels

People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing

Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin

When I say that I'm o.k. well they look at me kind of strange

Surely you're not happy now you no longer play the game

People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away

Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me

When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall

Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round

I really love to watch them roll

No longer riding on the merry-go-round

I just had to let it go

Ah, people asking questions lost in confusion

Well I tell them there's no problem, only solutions

Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind

I tell them there's no hurry

I'm just sitting here doing time

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round

I really love to watch them roll

No longer riding on the merry-go-round

I just had to let it go

I just had to let it go

I just had to let it go
