BEATLES (1969) - Ballad of John and Yoko
 

Standing in the dock at Southampton

Trying to get to Holland or France

The man in the mac said, "You've got to go back"

You know they didn't even give us a chance Christ! You know it ain't easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me

 

Finally made the plane into Paris

Honeymooning down by the Seine

Peter Brown called to say

"You can make it OK

You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain" Christ! You know it ain't easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me

 

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton

Talking in our beds for a week

The newspapers said, say what're you doing in bed

I said we're only trying to get us some peace  Christ! You know it ain't easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me

 

Saving up your money for a rainy day

Giving all your clothes to charity

Last night the wife said "Oh boy, when you're dead you don'ttakenothingwithyou butyour so-oul." Think!

 

Made a lightning trip to Vienna

Eating chocolate cake in a bag

The newspapers said

"She's gone to his head

They look just like two Gurus in a drag"

 Christ! You know it ain't easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me

 

Caught the early plane back to London

Fifty acorns tied in a sack

The men from the press said "We wish you success

It's good to have the both of you back"

 Christ! You know it ain't easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me

 

The way things are going

They're gonna crucify me
