The Ballad Of John And Yoko



Standing in the dock at Southamptontrying to get to Holland or FranceThe man in the mac saidyou've got to go backYou know they didn't even give us a chance
Christ you know it ain't easyYou know how hard it can beThe way things are goingThey're going to crucify me
Finally made the plane into ParisHoneymooning down by the SeinePeter Brown call to sayyou can make it O.K.You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain
Christ you know it ain't easyYou know how hard it can beThe way things are goingThey're going to crucify me
Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam HiltonTalking in our beds for a weekThe newspapers said say what're you doing in bedI said we're only trying to get us some peace
Christ you know it ain't easyYou know how hard it can beThe way things are goingThey're going to crucify me
Saving up your money for a rainy daygiving all your clothes to charityLast night the wife saidOh boy when you're deadyou don't take nothing with you but your soul, think
Made a lightning trip to ViennaEating chocolate cake in a bagThe newspapers saidshe's gone to his headThey look just like two coolies in drag
Christ you know it ain't easyYou know how hard it can beThe way things are goingThey're going to crucify me
Caught the early plane back to LondonFifty acorns tied in a sackThe men from the presssaid we wish you successsIt's good to have the both of you back
Christ you know it ain't easyYou know how hard it can beThe way things are goingThey're going to crucify meThe way things are goingThey're going to crucify me
