“Give Peace A Chance”   John Lennon

lyrics ~

Ev’rybody’s talkin’ ’bout
Bagism, Shagism, Dragism, Madism, Ragism, Tagism
This-ism, that-ism, ism ism ism
All we are saying is give peace a chance
All we are saying is give peace a chance

(C’mon)
Ev’rybody’s talkin’ ’bout
Minister, Sinister, Banisters and Canisters,
Bishops, Fishops, Rabbis, and Pop Eyes, Bye bye, Bye byes
All we are saying is give peace a chance
All we are saying is give peace a chance

(Let me tell you now)
Ev’rybody’s talkin’ ’bout
Revolution, Evolution, Masturbation, Flagellation, Regulation,
Integrations, mediations, United Nations, congratulations
All we are saying is give peace a chance
All we are saying is give peace a chance

Ev’rybody’s talkin’ ’bout
John and Yoko, Timmy Leary, Rosemary,
Tommy Smothers, Bobby Dylan, Tommy Cooper,
Derek Taylor, Norman Mailer, Alan Ginsberg, Hare Krishna
Hare Hare Krishna
All we are saying is give peace a chance
All we are saying is give peace a chance.

  1. Yes, please. May it be so. Lovely, Dani……my fave of John’s songs, too. Makes me choke up every time.

  2. The majority of people do want peace, I believe. They want to live in secure societies, with bread on the table, free to love and succeed and be happy.

  3. Love the poem, and so good to see you joining BB4P today! :-) Peace to you and yours!

    (A link to your post will be on “Peace Bloggers Unite” later)

  4. wonderful poem, we need to give peace a chance.

  5. i will def give an amen to that prayer…smiles.

  6. I’ve lost count of how many of us linked to or quoted The Beatles today, but it sure feels like the right thing to do. Give peace a chance, indeed.
