Give Peace A Chance

There were four lads from Liverpool

who played music and sang to everyone

from the people in pubs to the Queen

and when they laughed, or talked or breathed

everyone watched and so did everyone change

they wrote songs about small people

dying all alone in a church with no name

and songs about big things

but when you talk about destruction

don’t you know you can count me out

and the simplest of these was a song

that said Love is all you need

and how cruel it is then

that one of the boys that sang such lovely things

and used his time to sit in beds and talk of peace

was shot down, dead, in the end.
