When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

You say you want a revolution

Well, you know

We all want to change the world

 

You tell me that it's evolution

Well, you know

We all want to change the world

 

But when you talk about destruction

Don't you know that you can count me out?

 

Don't you know it's gonna be

all right, all right, all right?

 

You say you've got a real solution

Well, you know

We'd all love to see the plan

 

You ask me for a contribution

Well, you know

We are doing what we can

 

But if you want money for people with minds that hate

All I can tell is, brother, you'll have to wait

 

Don't you know it's gonna be

all right, all right, all right?

 

You say you'll change the constitution

Well, you know

We all want to change your head

 

You tell me it's the institution

Well, you know

You'd better free your mind instead

 

But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao

You ain't gonna make it with anyone anyhow

 

Don't you know it's gonna be

all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right,

all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right?

 

- "Revolution," John Lennon (primarily)/Paul McCartney.
