Demoverzi skladby nahrál John Lennon v prosinci 1970 pod názvem Make love not war. Přímou inspirací k textu byla kniha Mind games od Roberta Masterse a Jean Houstonové, kterou John zařadil mezi své tři nejdůležitější knihy života (po bok knih Yoko Ono Grapefruit a Arthura Janova Primal scream). Píseň vyšla 16. listopadu 1973 na britském singlu (Apple R 5994) a umístila se na 19. příčce hitparády. Ve Spojených státech vyšel singl 29. října 1973 (Apple 1868) a obsadil 18. místo hitparády. Na druhé straně singlu byla píseň Meat city. Jednalo se o jediný Lennonův singl, který vyšel v roce 1973.

We're playing those mind games together
pushing the barriers, planting seeds
playing the mind guerrilla
chanting the mantra, peace on earth.

We all been playing those mind games forever
some kinda druid dudes lifting the veil
doing the mind guerrilla
some call it magic, the search for the grail.

Love is the answer and you know that for sure
love is a flower, you got to let it, you got to let it grow.

So keep on playing those mind games together
faith in the future, outta the now
you just can't beat on those mind guerrillas
absolute elsewhere in the stones of your mind
yeah we're playing those mind games forever
projecting our images in space and in time.

Yes is the answer and you know that for sure
yes is surrender, you got to let it, you got to let it go.

So keep on playing those mind games together
doing the ritual dance in the sun
millions of mind guerrillas
putting their soul power to the karmic wheel
keep on playing those mind games forever
raising the spirit of peace and love.

Love...
(I want you to make love, not war
I know you've heard it before)

Hrajeme tyto hry mysli společně
odsunujeme překážky, vyséváme semena
hrajeme guerillu mysli
modlíme se mantru, ať je na zemi mír.

Hráli jsme tyto hry mysli vždycky
jistí druidové odhalili své závoje
válčíme guerillu mysli
někteří to nazývají zázračné hledání grálu.

Láska je odpověď a vy to jistě víte
láska je květina, nechte ji, nechte ji růst.

A tak dál hrajeme tyto hry mysli společně
ať dnešní víra je zítřejší vyznání
a vy teď nenaléhejte na tyto guerilly mysli
jsou všude i v kamenech vašich myšlenek
hrajeme tyto hry mysli vždycky
projektujeme naše obrazy ve vesmíru a čase.

Ano je odpověď a vy to jistě víte
ano je odevzdání, nechte ho, nechte ho plynout.

A tak dál hrajeme tyto hry mysli společně
tančete na slunci rituál
milióny guerill mysli
vplétají sílu ducha do karmického kola
hrajte dál tyto hry mysli neustále
vyvolávejte ducha míru a lásky.

Láska ...
(Chci, abyste se milovali a neválčili
vím, že už jste to ale někde slyšeli.)

Demoverzi této písně nahrál John Lennon v květnu 1971 pod názvem Call my name. V prosinci 1971 ji nahrál pro album Sometime in New York City, ale nakonec ji nevydal. V konečné verzi je pozměněn text. Výraz Aisumasen pochází z japonštiny a znamená Promiň.

When I'm down, really yin
And I don't know what I'm doing
Aisumasen, aisumasen Yoko
All I had to do was call your name
All I had to do was call your name

And when I hurt you and cause you pain
Darlin I promise I won't do it again
Aisumasen, aisumasen Yoko
It's hard enough I know just to feel your own pain
It's hard enough I know to feel, feel your own pain

All that I know is just what you tell me
All that I know is just what you show me

When I'm down, real sanpaku
And I don't know what to do
Aisumasen, aisumasen Yoko san
All I had to do was call your name
Yes, all I had to do was call your name

You are my weakness, you are my strength
Nothing I have in the world makes better sense
Cause I'm a fish and you're the sea

When we're together or when we're apart
There's never a space in between the beat of our hearts
Cause I'm the apple and you're the tree

One day at a time is all we do
One day at a time is good for you

You are my woman, I am your man
Nothing else matters at all, now I understand
That I'm the door and you're the key

Every morning I wake in your smile
Feeling your breath on my face and the love in your eyes
Cause you're the honey and I'm the bee

One day at a time is all we do
One day at a time is good for us too (you too)

Cause I'm the fish and you're the sea
Cause I'm the apple and you're the tree
Cause I'm the door and you're the key
Cause you're the honey and I'm the bee

Píseň byla původně nahrána koncem roku 1971. Je to jedna z Lennonových politických písní s odkazem na prezidenta Nixona a válku ve Vietnamu. Titulem 666 označoval John Nixona.

(Alright Boys, this is it, over the hill)

We don't care what flag you're waving
We don't even want to know your name
We don't care where you're from or where you're going
All we know is that you came
You're making all our decisions
We have just one request of you
That while you're thinking things over
Here's something you just better do

Free the people now
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now

Well we were caught with our hands in the air
Don't despair paranoia is everywhere
We can shake it with love when we're scared
So let's shout it aloud like a prayer

Free the people now
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now

We understand your paranoia
But we don't want to play your game
You think you're cool and know what you are doing
666 is your name
So while you're jerking off each other
You better bear this thought in mind
Your time is up you better know it
But maybe you don't read the signs

Free the people now
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now

Well you were caught with your hands in the kill
And you still got to swallow your pill
As you slip and you slide down the hill
On the blood of the people you killed

Stop the killing (Free the people now)
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now

Bring on the Lucie

My intentions are good, I use my intuition
It takes me for a ride
But I never understood other people's superstitions
It seemed like suicide
As I play the game of life
I try to make it better each and every day
And when I struggle in the night
The magic of the music seems to light the way

Ah, Intuition takes me there
Intuition takes me everywhere

Well my instincts are fine
I had to learn to use them in order to survive
And time after time confirmed an old suspicion
It's good to be alive
And when I'm deep down and out and lose communication
With nothing left to say
It's then I realize it's only a condition
Of seeing things that way

Ah, Intuition takes me there
Intuition takes me anywhere
(Takes me anywhere, alright)

Ah, Intuition takes me there

Out the blue you came to me
And blew away life's misery
Out the blue life's energy
Out the blue you came to me

Everyday I thank the Lord and Lady
For the way that you came to me
Anyway it had to be two minds one destiny

Out the blue ...

All my life's been a long slow knife
I was born just to get to you
Anyway I survived long enough to make you my wife

Out the blue ...

Like a U.F.O. you came to me
And blew away life's misery
Out the blue life's energy
Out the blue you came to me

Only people

Text rozvádí frázi Yoko Ono: "Only people can change the world."

Only people know just how to talk to people
Only people know just how to change the world
Only people realize the power of people
Well, 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!

Only people know ...

We'll 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't do
Fish or cut bait it's our future we're making
All together now pull the chain
We don't want no pig brother scene!

Only people know just how to talk to people
Only people know just how to change the world
(repeat three more times)

I know (I know)

The years have passed so quickly
One thing I've understood
I am only learning
To tell the trees from the wood

I know what's coming down
And I know where it's coming from
And I know and I'm sorry (yes I am)
But I never could speak my mind

And I know just how you feel
And I know now what I have done
And I know and I'm guilty (yes I am)
But I never could read your mind

I know what I was missing
But now my eyes can see
I put myself in your place
As you did for me

Today I love you more than yesterday
Right now I love you more right now

And I know what's coming down
I can feel where it's coming from
And I know it's getting better (all the time)
As we share in each other's minds

Today I love you more than yesterday
Right now I love you more right now
Ooh hoo no more crying

You are here

Název písně je stejný jako název výstavy z roku 1968, na které se John Lennon objevil v pytli. Text je o jeho potkávání východní kultury a o jeho vztahu k Yoko Ono.

From Liverpool to Tokyo
What a way to go
From distant lands one woman one man
Let the four winds blow

Three thousand miles over the ocean
Three thousand light years from the land of the rising sun

Love has opened up my eyes
Love has blown right through
Wherever you are, you are here
Wherever you are, you are here

Three thousand miles over the ocean
Three thousand light years from the land of the surprising sun

Well now east is east and west is west
The twain shall meet
East is west and west is east
Let it be complete

Three thousand miles over the ocean
Three thousand light years from the land of the morning star

Píseň se původně jmenovala Shoeshine. K jejímu přejmenování Johna možná vedl plakát z tehdejší doby, který zobrazoval kreslenou prasečí mámu s dítětem a pod nimi byl text Meat city.

Well I been Meat City to see for myself
