"I hope you enjoy the box. This is the John that I knew, not the John that you knew through the press, the records and the films. I am saying to you, here's my John. I wish to share my knowledge of him with you. It was an incredible honour for me to have been with him." Yoko Ono.
Čtyřdiskový komplet vyšel osmnáct let po Lennonově smrti. Obsahuje dosud nevydané nahrávky, domácí demosnímky, živé nahrávky a alternativní verze vydaných skladeb. Na podporu prodeje byl natočen stominutový rozhlasový pořad, který americké stanice odvysílaly v předvečer vydání. Příprava alba trvala osmnáct měsíců, po které Yoko Ono s Robem Stevensem probírali 2000 hodin Lennonových nahrávek, jejichž technická kvalita byla velmi různorodá.

Working class hero

(Lennon)

Nahráno: 1970
Producent: John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Phil Spector
John Lennon - sólový zpěv, akustická kytara

Ah, she's gone to do it?
Let's go again.
What is it?
I just wanted to do an ...
Okay, I'll try it, okey?

As soon as you're 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 they 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 twenty 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 religion and sex and TV
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
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.

Well well well oh well
well well well oh well.

How is the sound?
Ach, udělá to?
Zkusíme to znovu.
Co je to?
Chci jen udělat ...
OK, zkusím to, OK?

Hned jak ses narodil, vnutili ti, že jsi malý
na nic ti nedali dost času
až tvoje bolest byla tak velká, že už jsi nic necítil
hrdina dělnické třídy, to je něco
hrdina dělnické třídy, to je něco!

Doma ti ubližovali a ve škole tě bili
nenávidějí tě, když jsi chytrý, ale hlupákem pohrdají
a ty jsi úplně v prdeli, nedokážeš žít, jak oni pískají
hrdina dělnické třídy, to je něco
hrdina dělnické třídy, to je něco!

A jak tě tak trápili a naháněli ti hrůzu
dalších dvacet let
očekávali, že se nejspíš rozběhneš za kariérou
ale ty už vůbec nefunguješ a jsi podělaný strachy
hrdina dělnické třídy, to je něco
hrdina dělnické třídy, to je něco!

Opíjeli tě náboženstvím, sexem a televizí
a ty si myslíš, že jsi chytrý, beztřídní a svobodný
ale v mých očích jsi pořád jen zasraný poddaný
hrdina dělnické třídy, to je něco
hrdina dělnické třídy, to je něco!

Pořád ti opakujou, že nahoře je místo
ale nejdřív se musíš naučit smát a zabíjet
chceš-li se vyrovnat těm na kopečku
hrdina dělnické třídy, to je něco
hrdina dělnické třídy, to je něco!

Chceš-li se stát hrdinou, následuj mě
chceš-li se stát hrdinou, následuj mě.

Fajn fajn fajn jo fajn
fajn fajn fajn jo fajn.

Jaký je zvuk?

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
yes we do.

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 just believe in me
Yoko and me
and that's 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.

Hey, it's incredibly strange in the end.
Bůh je pojem
podle něhož měříme bolest
budu to říkat neustále
Bůh je pojem
kterým měříme bolest
a my to víme.

Nevěřím v magii
nevěřím v čínský balzám
nevěřím v bibli
nevěřím v karty
nevěřím v Hitlera
nevěřím v Ježíše
nevěřím v Kennedyho
nevěřím v Buddhu
nevěřím v mantru
nevěřím v Gitu
nevěřím v jógu
nevěřím v krále
nevěřím v Elvise
nevěřím v Zimmermana
nevěřím v Beatles
věřím jen sobě
Yoko a sobě
a to je realita.

Sen už skončil
co mohu dodat
sen už skončil
včera.

Byl jsem byl tvůrcem snů
teď jsem vystřízlivěl
byl jsem mrož
teď jsem John
a tak tedy, přátelé
můžete si všechno vzít
sen už skončil.

Hej, to je neskutečně divnej konec.

sharing 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 ...
Může být v kuchyni ticho, prosím, díky.

Představ si, že není nebe
to je docela snadné
žádné peklo pod námi
nad námi jen obloha
představ si, že všichni lidé
žijí pro dnešní den.

Představ si, že nejsou státy
to není nijak těžké
není proč zabíjet a umírat
a taky není náboženství
představ si, že všichni lidé
žijí život v míru.

Můžeš říct, že jsem snílek
ale nejsem jediný
doufám, že jednou se k nám přidáš
a svět bude jako jeden.

Představ si, že není majetek
schválně, jestli to dokážeš
není důvod k chamtivosti a hladu
všichni lidé jsou bratři
představ si, že všichni lidé
se dělí o celý svět.

Můžeš říct ...

Ready?

No no, we're going right in this time.
Six!
One two, one two three four.

So Sgt. Pepper took you by surprise
you better see right through that mother's eyes
so dicks was right when they said you was dead
your one mistake you made was in your head.
Tell me, how do you sleep?
Tell me, 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 done was yesterday
and since you're gone you're just another day.
Tell me, how do you sleep at night?
Tell me babe, how do you sleep at night?

You was king ...
Ah, 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 learned something in all those years.
Ah, how do you sleep, brother?
Tell me, how do you sleep at night?

Hit it!
Jump when your mama tell you anything.
Stop! OK!
Raz ...
Připraveni?
Raz dva, raz dva tři čtyři.
Ne ne, začínáme správně.
Šest!
Raz dva, raz dva tři čtyři.

Tak sgt. Pepper tě tedy překvapil
líp bys viděl všechno očima svý mámy
ti šašci měli pravdu, když říkali, že jsi mrtvý
jediná chyba, kterou jsi udělal, byla z tvé hlavy.
Řekni, jak se ti spí?
Řekni, jak se ti spí v noci?

Žiješ spořádaně, kdo to vidí, říká, že jsi byl král
souhlasíš, když ti tvoje maminka něco říká
to jediné, co jsi udělal, bylo Yesterday
a od té doby to děláš každý den.
Řekni, jak se ti spí v noci?
Řekni hochu, jak se ti spí v noci?

Byl jsi král ...
Jak se ti spí v noci?

Hezký obličej vydrží tak rok nebo dva
a brzy se ukáže, co vlastně umíš
v mých uších to zní jako šlágry
to je všechno, co ses naučil dělat.
Jak se ti spí, brácho?
Řekni, jak se ti spí v noci?

Vstaň!
Vyskoč, když ti tvoje matka něco říká.

John Lennon a Plastic Ono Band - zpěv a doprovod

It is my pleasure and privilige
at this very solumn moment
to introduce a young man and his wife,
who saw fit to put down in music and lyrics
so that it will never be forgotten in our country
by anyone, the tragedy of Attica State.
There's no more that I can say, Ladies and Gentlemen.
I would like to introduce you to John and Yoko Lennon.
I'd just like to say, it's an honour
and a pleasure to be here at the Apollo
and for the reasons we're all here.
This song, Yoko and I wrote, is called Attica state.
One two three four!

What a waste of human power
What a waste of human lives
Shoot the prisoners in the towers
Forty-three poor widowed wives

Attica State, Attica State
we're all mates with Attica State

Media blames it on the prisoners
But the prisoners did not kill
"Rockefeller pulled the trigger"
That is what the people feel

Attica State, Attica State
we're all mates with Attica State

Free the prisoners, jail the judges
Free all prisoners everywhere
All they want is truth and justice
All they need is love and care

Attica State, Attica State
we're all mates with Attica State

They all live in suffocation
Let's not watch them die in sorrow
Now's the time for revolution
Give them all a chance to grow

Attica State, Attica State
we're all mates with Attica State

Come together join the movement
Take a stand for human rights
Fear and hatred clouds our judgement
Free us all from endless night

Attica State, Attica State
we're all mates with Attica State

Attica State, Attica State
we all live in Attica State

Attica State, Attica State
Attica, Attica, Attica, Attica.

Thank you, aah, thank you, thank you, aah.
Some of you, eh, wonder what I'm doin' here
with no drummers and no nothin' like that.
Well, you might know I lost my me old band or I left it.
I'm puttin' a, I'm puttin' an electric band together
it's not ready yet.
Ah, things like this keep comin' up so
I just have to busk it.
So I'm gonna sing you a song now you might know.
It's called Imagine.

Imagine (live)
(Lennon)

Nahráno: 17.12. 1971, Apollo
John Lennon - sólový zpěv, akustická kytara

Two three four!

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 ...

Thank you!
Dva tři čtyři!

Představ si, že není nebe
to je docela snadné
žádné peklo pod námi
nad námi jen obloha
představ si, že všichni lidé
žijí pro dnešní den.

Představ si, že nejsou státy
to není nijak těžké
není proč zabíjet a umírat
a taky není náboženství
představ si, že všichni lidé
žijí život v míru.

Můžeš říct, že jsem snílek
ale nejsem jediný
doufám, že jednou se k nám přidáš
a svět bude jako jeden.

Představ si, že není majetek
schválně, jestli to dokážeš
není důvod k chamtivosti a hladu
všichni lidé jsou bratři
představ si, že všichni lidé
se dělí o celý svět.

Můžeš říct ...

Díky!

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 got to 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 don't know what rules you are playing
We don't even wanna play your game
You think you're cool and you know what you're doing
and 666 is your name
So while you jerking off each other
You bear this thought in mind
Your time has come, you better know it
But maybe you just can'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 now, stop the killing now
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now

OK I say it's picking up ...
One and a two and a three and a four, hey!
That's it now, hold on, hold on ...
let's hear more bass in the earphones
and more slide guitar and a touch less of the piano.

We make her paint her face and dance
if she won't be a slave
we say that she don't love us
if she's real, we say she's trying to be a man
while putting her down
we pretend that she's above us.

You know, woman is the nigger of the world
if you don't believe me
take a look at the one you're with
woman is the slave of the slaves
ah yeah, if you believe me, scream about it.

We make her bear and raise our children
and then we leave her flat
for being a fat old mother hen
we tell her home is the only place she should be
then we complain
that she's too unworldly to be our friend.

Well now, woman is the nigger of the world
yes she is, if you don't believe me
take a look at the one you're with
woman is the slave to the slaves
yeah, if you believe me, you'd better scream!

We insult her every day on TV
and wonder why she has no guts or confidence
when she's young we kill her will to be free
this is the one I can never remember
but you'll get the message any way.

You know that woman is the nigger of the world
yes she is, if you don't believe me
take a look at the one you're with
woman is the slave to the slaves
yeah connoly was right, we scream it!

Look out, we make her paint her face and dance.

říkáme, že nás nemiluje

tváříme se, že je nad námi.

Víš, žena je negrem světa

podívej se na tu svoji
žena je otrok otroků

Nutíme ji rodit a vychovávat naše děti
a pak ji opustíme
když se z ní stane stará tlustá matka slepice
říkáme, že domov je jediné místo, kde by měla být
pak si stěžujeme
že je příliš nemožná, aby byla naším přítelem.

Takže žena je negrem světa
ano, je, jestli mi nevěříš
podívej se na tu svoji
žena je otrok otrokům
yeah, jestli mi věříš, radši to zakřič!

Každý den ji urážíme v televizi
a divíme se, že nemá žádnou odvahu a sebejistotu
když je mladá, zabijeme její touhu po svobodě
to je to jediné, na co nikdy nezapomene
ale nikdy jí to nedáme vědět.

Víš, že žena je negrem světa
ano, je, jestli mi nevěříš
podívej se na tu svoji
žena je otrok otrokům
yeah, správně, zakřič to!

OK, one two three, one two three!

If you had the luck of the Irish
You'd be sorry and wish you were dead
You should have the luck of the Irish
And you'd wish you was English instead!

A thousand years of torture and hunger
Drove the people away from their land
A land full of beauty and wonder
Was raped by the British brigands! Goddamn! Goddamn!

If you could keep voices like flowers
There'd be shamrock all over the world
If you could drink dreams like Irish streams
Then the world would be high as the mountain of morn

In the 'Pool they told us the story
How the English divided the land
Of the pain, the death and the glory
And the poets of auld Eireland

If we could make chains with the morning dew
The world would be like Galway Bay
Let's walk over rainbows like leprechauns
The world would be one big Blarney stone

Why the hell are the English there anyway?
As they kill with God on their side
Blame it all on the kids the IRA
As the bastards commit genocide! Aye! Aye! Genocide!

If you had the luck of the Irish
You'd be sorry and wish you were dead
You should have the luck of the Irish
And you'd wish you was English instead!
Yes you'd wish you was English instead!

He didn't want any help for two years
because he thought why bother
justice will let me out, my appeals will let me out.
after two years he began to worry
and he asked for some help.
We went down, had a rally with 15.000 people.
We weren't the only people there

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

And I know now what I have done

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

I know what's coming down
And I know where it's coming from
And I know it's getting better all the time
Now we're sharing each others mind

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

Right now I love you more right now

Hey hey, one two three four.

When I was a little boy
way back home in Liverpool
my mama told me, I was great.

Then when I was a teenager
I knew that I had got something going
all my friends told me I was great.

And now I'm a man
a woman took me by the hand
and you know what she told me I was great.

I was in the greatest show on earth
for what it was worth
now I'm only thirty-two
and all I wanna do, is boogaloo!

Yeah I look at myself in the mirror
I see my wife and kids
and they tell me, you're great.

Now let me introduce to you
the one and only Billie Shears
she's thirty-two
and all she wants to do, is boogaloo!

Hey hey hey, hear them say
my mama told me I was great.

Let's go again, go straight from thee top
Ok oh, that's ok, bang, two three four!

Demoverze písně pro sólové album Ringo Starra Goodnight Vienna.
Last night, ah-hah-hah
she was so beautiful
she made me uptight, ah-hah-hah.

Oh gee! I'm worn out!
Can we try another, can you hear what he's saying?

I took my baby to a party last night
she was so beautiful, she made me uptight
up came a butcher with her ju jus alight
it's all down to goodnight Vienna.

Felt like a bohunk but I kept up my cool
green as a frog, man, I was back into school
zipped up my mouth 'cause I was starting to drool
it's all down to goodnight Vienna.

Get it up!
It's all down to goodnight Vienna!

She said she loved me but I knew she was lying
felt like an arab who was dancing through zion
don't call no doctor when you just feel like crying
it's all down to goodnight Vienna.

Get it up!

I took my baby to a party last night
she was so beautiful, she made me uptight
she came a doct... with his needles in sight
it's all down to goodnight Vienna.

John and Yoko, let's hear it!
John Lennon, John Lennon, Yoko!
Let's hear them, let's get a bow
John Lennon, John, Yoko!

John! John! John! John!

John, Yoko, John, Yoko, John, Yoko, John.
I'll tell you what, oh, cool it, cool it!
I would suspect that John Lennon
is probably one of the wisest showman I've ever met.
He knows what he's doin'!
He did two things, he did two...shhhh!
Please! He did two things tonight.
He came here to help, one,
I think this was the primary purpose of his visit.
And, two, he meant to say something.
I think he did both those things.
He has split. Let's thank them very much!

OK, start again, silly boy. Take four!

All my little plans and schemes
gone like some forgotten dreams
seems that all I really was doing
was waiting for you.

Just like little girls and boys
playing with their little toys
seems like all we're really were doing
was waiting for love.

No need to be alone
no need to be alone
it's real love, yes, it's real
yes, it's real love, it's real.

From this moment on I know
exactly where my life will go
seems like all I really was doing
was waiting for love.

Thought I'd been in love before
but in my heart, I wanted more
seems like all I really was doing
was waiting for you.

No need to be afraid
no need to be afraid
it's real love, yes, it's real
yes, it's real love, it's real.

from ... to village green

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

And still you ask me do I love you

What it is? What it is? What it is?

Nobody loves you ...

I've been across the water now so many times
I've seen the one eyed witchdoctor leading the blind
And still you ask me do I love you
what you say, what you say
Everytime I put my finger on it, it slips away

What you say? What you say? What you say? What you say?

You don't have to worry
In heaven or hell
Just dance to the music
You do it so well, well, well!

Hatred and jealousy, gonna be the death of me
I guess I knew it right from the start
Sing out about love and peace
Don't wanna see the red raw meat
The green eyed goddamn straight from your heart

God only knows such a sweet surprise

they nail you to the paper
put a rope around your neck
and so we sing along
the boy stood on the burning deck!

Move over Ms. L. ...

Well, now momma, poppa, told me, son
you better watch your head
your head is full of snakes
boy, you're better red than dead
they're starving back in China

can't get head in the head shop

you're full of beans
you're in your teens

You say you're not getting enough
But I remind you of all that bad, bad, bad stuff
So what the hell am I supposed to do?
Just put a bandaid on it?
And stop the bleeding now
Stop the bleeding now

I know I hurt you then
But hell, that was way back when
And well, do you still have to carry that cross?
Don't want to hear about it

You say you found Jesus Christ
he's the only one
you say you found Buddah
sittin' in the sun
you say you found Mohammed
facin' to the east
you say you found Krishna
dancin' in the street.

Well, there's somethin' missin' in this god almighty stew
and it's your mother
your mother, don't forget your mother, lad.

You gotta serve yourself
nobody gonna do it for you
you gotta serve yourself
nobody gonna do it for you
well, you may believe in devils and you may believe in laws
but if you don't go out and serve yourself, lad.

It's still the same old story
a bloody holy war
a fight for love and glory
ain't gonna study war no more
a fight for god and country
we're gonna set you free
we'll put you back in the stone age
if you won't be like me.

Get it?

You gotta serve yourself
ain't nobody gonna do it for you
you gotta serve yourself
ain't nobody gonna do it for you
yeah, you may believe in devils and you may believe and laws
but Christ, you gonna have to serve yourself
and that's all there is to it

So get right back here
it's in the bloody fridge
god, when i was a kid
we didn't have stuff like this
TV fuckin' dinners and all that crap
you fuckin' kids, all fuckin' the same
want a fuckin' car now
lucky to have a pair of shoes?

You tell me you've found Jesus Christ
that's great and he's the only one
you say you've just found Buddah
and he's sittin' on his arse in the sun
you say you found Mohammed
kneelin' on a bloody carpet, facin' east
you say you found Krishna
with his bald head, dancin' in the street
well, christ now and you're bein' heard.

You gotta serve yourself
ain't nobody gonna do it for you, that's right lad
you better get that straight into your fuckin' head
you gotta serve yourself, you know that
who else is gotta do that for you
it ain't me, kid, I tell you that.

Well you may believe in Jesus
and you may believe in Marx
and you may believe in Marks and Spencers
and you may even believe in bloody Woolworths
but there's something missin' in this whole bloody Stew
and it's your mother, your poor bloody mother
she worked for you in the back bedroom
full of piss and shit and fuckin' midwives
god, you can't forget that awful moment, you know
you should have been in the bloody war, lad
and you would know all about it
well, I'll tell you somethin'.

It's still the same old story
a holy bloody war
you know with the pope and all that stuff
a fight for love and glory
ain't gonna study no more war
I fight for god and country and the queen and all that
we're gonna set you free, yeah
bomb ya back into the fuckin' stone age
if you won't be like me
you know, now get down on your knees and pray
well, there's something missin' in this god almighty stew
and it's your god damn mother
you dirty little git
now get in there and was your ears.

Everybody's making love and no one really cares
There's Nazis in the bathroom just below the stairs
Always something happening and nothing going on
Always something cooking and nothing in the pot
They're starving back in China so finish what you got

Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Strange days indeed most peculiar, honey, boogie

Everybody's runnin' and no one makes a move
Everyone's a winner and nothing left to lose
There's a little yellow idol to the north of Katmandu
Hey now, everybody's flying and no one leaves the ground
Well everybody's crying and no one makes a sound
There's a place for us in the movies you just gotta lay around

Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Strange days indeed most peculiar, mama

Well now, everybody's smoking and no one's getting high
Everybody's flying and never touch the sky
There's a UFO over New York and I ain't too surprised
Into the middle

Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Strange days indeed most peculiar
I mean, I've never seen anything like it

Hey hey hey, roll it, roll it, roll it

gift of a very strange.
I'd like, this morning
to sing you a little ditty that occured to me
in the throes of my sleep.
It's called Life begins at 40.

They say life begins at forty
age is just a state of mind
if all that's true
you know, that I've been dead for thirty-nine.

And if life begins at forty
well, I hope it ain't the same
it's been tough enough without that stuff
I don't wanna to be born again.

Well, I tried to sweep the slate clean
with a new broom ev'ry day
if that don't work,
I'll jerk around until my next birtday.

Yeah, life begins at forty
age is just a state of mind
well, if all that's true
you know that I've been dead for thirty-nine.

Where nobody knows your name
You're looking for oblivion
With one eye on the Hall of Fame

I don't wanna face it oh no
I don't wanna face it no no no no
Well I can dish it out
But I just can't take it

You're looking for some peace and love
The leader of a big old band
You wanna save humanity
But it's people that you just can't stand

I don't wanna face it oh no
I don't wanna face it no no no no
Well I can sing for my supper
But I just can't make it

Earl slick!

Well say you're lookin' for a world of truth
Trying to find a better way
The time has come to see yourself
You always look the other way

I don't wanna face it oh no
I don't wanna face it no no no no
Well I can see the promised land
And I know I can make it!

Yeah I don't wanna face it
I don't wanna face it, oh no

My mixed emotions at my thoughtlessness
After all I'm forever in your debt
And woman I will try to express
My inner feelings and thankfulness
For showing me the meaning of success

Woman I know you understand
The little child inside of the man
Please remember my life is in your hands
And woman hold me close to your heart
However distant don't keep us apart
After all it is written in the stars

Woman please let me explain
I never meant to cause you sorrow or pain
So let me tell you again and again and again

I love you now and forever

I wilt just like a fading flower
Ain't nothing in the world like our love dear Yoko

Oh Yoko
I'll never, ever, ever, ever, ever gonna let you go

Even when I'm miles at sea
And nowhere is the place to be
Your spirit's watching over me dear Yoko
Even when I watch T.V.
There's a hole where you're supposed to be
There's nobody lying next to me dear Yoko

Oh Yoko ...

Even after all this time
I miss you like the sun don't shine
Without I'm a one track mind dear Yoko

The two of us are really one
The goddess really smiled upon our love dear Yoko

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.

Ah and 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
but 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
and I love to watch them roll
no longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go.

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 ...
Lidi říkaj, že jsem blázen
dělám si, co chci
všemožně mě chráněj
abych nebyl troska
když říkám, že jsem OK
divně se koukají
ta hra už končí
což vás jistě nepotěší.

Lidi říkaj, že jsem línej
celý život jenom sním
všemožně mi radí
aby mě mohli osvítit
když říkám, že se mám fajn
tak čerta na zeď malují
abys ten čas hochu nepropás
už nejsi dávno na koni.

Já tu jen tak sedím a na kruhy koukám
jak se kolem dokola točí
fakt mám rád, jak se točí
připadám si jako na kolotoči
jen bych je měl nechat být.

Lidi otázky kladou
sami ve zmatku ztracení
já říkám, to není problém
je jen řešení
hlavou vrtí a myslí
že jsem se pominul
když jim říkám, ať zpomalí
já jen sedím a sleduju čas.

Já tu jen tak sedím ...

Woke up this morning blues around my head
No need to ask the reason why
Went to the kitchen and lit a cigarette
Blew my worries to the sky

I'm stepping out

If it don't feel right you don't have to do it
Just leave a message on the phone and tell them to screw it
Well now after all is said and done
you can't go pleasin' everyone so screw it.

I'm stepping out

Let's go to the doctor!

Called up the doctor, but he was sick to death
he don't make house calls any more
he's gone out dancin' to sweeten up his breath
left a message on the floor.

I'm stepping out

Latin!

If it don't feel right, well, don't do it
you leave a message on the phone and tell them to screw it
well now, after all is said and done
you just can't please ev'ryone so screw it.

I'm stepping out

Last verse!

Baby's sleeping the cats have all been blessed
Ain't nothing doing on TV
Put on my spacesuit, you know I got to look my best
I'm going out to do the city

I'm stepping out

I do take a chance
like a dance in my pants.

welcome to Bermuda.

When I was younger
Living confusion and deep dispair
When I was younger ah hah
Living illusion of freedom and power

When I was younger
Full of ideas and broken dreams, my friend
When I was younger ah hah
Everything simple but not so clear

Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow

Now I am older
The more that I see the less that I know for sure
Now I am older ah hah
The future is brighter and now is the hour

Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow

Good to be older
Would not exchange a single day or a year
Good to be older ah hah
Less complications everything clear

Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow

we'll give you all the answers
so swallow this
that's all you've got to do.

Ev'rything you need is here
and ev'rything that's not here
is not there
and yet there's something missing
in this god almighty plan
could it be you need a woman?

Ah now, all you need to do
is to say this little word
I know it sounds absurd
but it's true
the magic's in the mantra
we'll give you all the answers

But still ...

You're so suicidal
something is wrong
this can't be it

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

For our love is true
God bless our love
God bless our love

Dear John

John Lennon - zpěv, akustická kytara

Dear John
don't be hard on yourself
give yourself a break
life wasn't meant to be run
the race is over, you've won.

And dear John
put the TV on, have a snack
wash your mother's back
the race is over.

The great wok
Nahráno: 1979, Dakota, New York

Hello, hello, testing, testing! At this time of year, oh let me first introduce myself. Maybe you have heard me before, I am the great wok. And as you know, the great wok must be done. Now, at this time of year when Brahama is in Brahma. The day of Brahma is set to last one thousand years and its night is of equal length. Well, for us human being, this is the end of the year now and our minds turns towards what is laughably called the future. No mind can comprehend the infinite and absolute anon munsch Mars stunvelly humpff, as we say in the Himalayas. Now let me tell you, my resolution of the year 1979 is to renounce complete everything, but complete luxury and self indulgance. Now I suggest this is going to be very, very difficult, very difficult indeed. I feel it's my duty, not only as a human being but as a person or was it not george formy who said there are four billion three hundred and twenty million mortal or earth years which is one day of Brahma. So, one way of looking at it is simply not to look at it at all. And that's exactly what we're going to do now. So we'll settle down, deeply, I hope, and comfortably in an easy chair and then, lay back, put the incense on, light the candles and give yourself a hard time.

Mucho Mungo

John Lennon - zpěv, akustická kytara

Mucho Mungo, sweet thing
sweetest little thing I've ever seen
it must have been a sweet dream
brought you here
brought you through the sorrow
and the tears.

C'est la, c'est la, c'est la vie
sail upon the ocean, sail with me
sail into tomorrow ev'ry day
sail into the sunshine through the haze.

Satire 1
Nahráno: 1979, Dakota, New York
John Lennon - zpěv, akustická kytara

Lord, take this makeup of off of me.
I said, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, take this makeup off me.
It's bad enough on the beach
but it's worse in the sea.

Because I'm knockin' on heaven's door.
Because I'm lookin' for my ma.

I said, ma, take these guns away from me.
I said, ma, take these guns away from me.
I got so thin now, they're draggin' me down to my knees.
Oh yeah, man, do you Mr. Jones?

Town
now I've been here so long, I almost forgot my name.
I said, Lord I been here so long I almost forgot my name.
But as long as I keep touring
I'll always be in the game, fame, brain
shame and fame and game, fame, fame.

Well, thank you, Mr. Jitters.
Thank you, Mister Jitters.

The official Soviet newspaper said, the temple members have protested the mindless arms waste from the filthy war in Vietnam. And were persecuted and finally forced to seek refuge in another country. Wow. Sounds like a ballad to me, oh man.
Bankok, Thailand, they've launched an air-sea search for a fishing boat carrying some foreign Vietnamese refugees, the boat was towed back out to sea for a ride in Thailand. Sources said that it was because of a breakdown in communicatin. Oh Lord, the boat was towed into Thai waters by a German freighter and the Thai navy are unaware that the refugees have been guaranteed a resettlement and worst the only took the boat out to sea after providing all passengers with provision. Hey, that's deep man.

The Chinese newspapers have made the first reference to the country's curtain wall posted campaign according to vice premiar Deng Xiaoping. And said that the country's stable and its leaders are confident and planning modernisation and programs. Oh this should get me in the village bar. Deng gave blessing to the campaig but he commented not all the opinions of the masses are carefully thought out or can we demand that they all be correct. Adding this is nothing terrible. It' bad enough, but its not terrible.
From a prison, Richard Nixon, on his second trip outside the United States, sent his fesignation with a smiling hand shake politician again. Greedy crowds outside his hotel, and trying a little French. They sure as hell didn't try it on Pam Nixon. Mr. Nixon is in Paris and inside this suite to be interviewed on French television. They thought of going on to deliver a speech in England, he'll participate in the French collegue program and said he will answer questions in Welsh.

That's pretty big Mr. M. ahhh, I'm so cynical, I could just keep on doing this forever because, you know, they ain't gonna be lookin' for my golden bunnions in a hundred years from now. They're gonna be sellin' my socks like Judy Garland. And I hope that they get a good price. I mean, with the inflation and the price of rice. Man, I shouldn't worry, I own all my songs and I wrote them myself too.
I got 24 children, 14 wives, 3 mistresses, 59 accountants, 105 lawyers, 2.000.000 fans, a posted system that never fails to land me in jail. And look through my mail. Perhaps have a garage sale. And you know, go save the whale, and a, you know, get a boat and go for a sail, and, and, oh oh oh oh, how do you get out of this hell? Stuck inside of a lexicon with the Roger thesaurus blues again.
Sometimes I wish I was just George Harrison, you know all the answers, oh my god, oh my god.

Just a minute! I'm just getting my jyamas.
I'd just want to leave you with this message.

They say that the best things in life are free
except on TV, heh heh heh heh.

Sean's "in the sky"
Nahráno: 1979, Dakota, New York

Daddy, when did we have no house?
When?
When, when did we have no house and we rented this house?
In 1973, we didn't have this house, yet.
That's when we bought this house.
Oh!
Two years before you were born.
Oh, and I just wasn't coming with you? To find this house?
No, well you weren't born yet. You wwere still in the sky.
Oh, and when I came back, was down hhere, what did I went in?
A little, a little cardboard box.
With a little blanket in, little Teeny Tiny
Teeny Tiny little boy in a little tiny cardboard box.
They used to have apples in it, hmm. You used to do this here.
A apple box!
Well, a little cardboard box, you see.
Like they bring groceries in.
And it was you instead of the groceries.

It's real

Na-omi-ah, na-ah

Incantation.

If ya ever meet the sweet rolling thunder
(flying on the dead of the night)
just call me if ya can't get his number
(watching how that rattle snake bites)
all he's got is real understanding
smokin' through his medicine head
watch him get down to the unreal voodoo
and shove it to the living dead.

Incantation.

What's happenin,' found his face in a bad dream, momma
(flying on the dead of the night)
I woke up and then I let out a bad scream, oh
(watching how that rattle snake bites)
rolling thunder said, ya got this one started
what happened there, did the kid get high, high
all the dog soldiers shootin' uncoke-a-Cola
get 'em dancin' 'til they lose their minds.

Incantation.

Rattlesnake, buddy!
(Watching how the rattlesnake bites)

Incantation coming to get you
incantation coming. (Oh, here I come)
