John Lennon - Imagine - Lyrics
Sure, I agree that the Beatles were a good band, very good. But I also maintain that they were, individually and as a group, the most overpraised individuals in the entire Twentieth Century.
Take "Imagine," for instance. This is the Public Relations John Lennon on display. The real John Lennon was a mean-spirited, wife-beating child-abandoner.
How are these for alternative lyrics?
Imaging there's no Lennon,
And no McCartney, too,
No Beatles' songs to worship,
No John's sarcasm, too,
Imagine all the people,
With nothing to do . . . wha-ah-oooh!
Imagine all the others,
The bands that you've forgot,
The Beatles got the money,
The others got it not,
Some did great work for decades,
But you don't give a snot . . . wha-ah-oooh!
The Beatles were a good band,
Brother, I was there,
But tell me why did they have to,
Suck up all of the air?
Sorry, I'm just in a bad mood today. Which makes another point. Lennon was in a bad mood most days, and his fans think that it's genius. When I'm in a bad mood, most people just think that it's retarded.
