It's easy if you try

by John Lennon & Jeff Kay

Imagine there's no heaven, it's easy if you try.

How about a little help with this one, John? One knock for yes, two knocks for no.

No hell below us, above us only sky.
No hell too?! Man, that's going to take all the fun out of my Dio albums.

Imagine all the people, living for today.
Perhaps MasterCard should use that as an advertising slogan?

Imagine there's no countries, it isn't hard to do.
And deprive the world of America-hating?! Boy, thatís cruel.

Nothing to kill or die for, no religion too.
Isnít blissed-out utopian hippie daydreaming a religion?

Imagine all the people, living life in peace...
I'm already bored. And inexplicably sad.

Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can.
Piss off Yoko, and her team of lawyers will make sure you don't have to just imagine it.

No need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of man.
There's no need for it now, but you know how people like to cling to tradition.

Imagine all the people, sharing all the world.
We'd be knifing each other by the first afternoon: "Take that, you grain-hoarding bitch!"

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.
Yes, Iíve seen the bumper stickers, and smelled the free-range hygiene.

I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will live as one.
OK, but only if you guys promise not to wear your 1968 Two Virgins hair-diapers.
