Imagine
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imagine_(song)

Excerpt:

"Imagine" is a song written and performed by
John Lennon, which first appeared on his 1971
album, Imagine. It was released as a single in
the same year, and reached number three in
the U.S. Billboard charts, and number six in
the United Kingdom. One of his best-known
and most influential works, it is often consid-
ered Lennon's magnum opus.

In the book Lennon in America, written by
Geoffrey Giuliano, Lennon commented that
the song was "an anti-religious, anti-national-
istic, anti-conventional, anti-capitalistic song,
but because it's sugar-coated, it's accepted."

Since its release, "Imagine" has appeared on
many lists and polls of favourite songs and
influential songs; e.g. it is listed as the 3rd
greatest song on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest
Songs of All Time.

Imagine (John Lennon)



Imagine lyrics:

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 that 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 that 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

God, by John Lennon



God lyrics:

God is a concept,
By which we can measure,
Our pain,
I'll say it again,
God is a concept,
By which we can 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,
Yoko and me,
And that's reality.
The dream is over,
What can I say?
The dream is over,
Yesterday,
I was dreamweaver,
But now I'm reborn,
I was the walrus,
But now I'm John,
And so dear friends,
You just have to carry on,
The dream is over.
