The Ballad Of John And Yoko


1. 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.
R: Christ you know it ain't easy
   you know how hard it can be
   the way things are going
   they're gonna crucify me.
2. Finelly 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.
3. Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton
   talking in our beds for a week
   the newspapers said what are you doing in bed
   I said we're only trying to get us some peace.
4. 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't take nothing with you but your soul.
5. 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 drag.
6. 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.
R: Christ you know it ain't easy...
   The way things are going
   they're gonna crucify me.
