Mr Lennon, Mr Lennon

3

Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon the end is nigh
Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon ain’t any diamonds in the sky
Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon are you still asking why
Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon it’s all been a lie…

No one warned us ‘bout days like these
and they’re strange indeed,
dark days like these.

Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon there’s a gun against your head
Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon careful where you tread
Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon what’s being said
Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon give us our daily bread…

No one warned them ‘bout days like these
and they’re strange indeed,
black days like these.

Mr. Lennon, Mr Lennon nothing’s changed
Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon it’s been prearranged
Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon working class hero‘s get short-changed
Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon the war’s left us deranged…

Yo! Prophet in the city
preacher on the street
in shackles and in chains
council glitter is turning us bitter
it’s all up the shitter

Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon now that you’re dead
Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon the rich are still fed
Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon it’s the end that we dread
Mr. Lennon, Mr. Lennon put this monster now to bed…

** Dedicated to John Lennon, singer, songwriter, musician, philosopher, poet, activist and artist. Assassinated on 8 December 1980 in front of his New York apartment.  **
