The Ballad Of John And Yoko

Lennon & McCartney

Standing on 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
They way of things are going
They're going to crusify me.

Finally made the plane into Paris
Honey mooning down by the Seine
Peter Brown called to say, you can make it O.K.
You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain
Christ! You know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
They way of things are going
They're going to crusify 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
They way of things are going
They're going to crusify 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't take nothing with you but your soul - Think!

Made a lighting trip to Vienna
Eating choclate cake in a bag
The newspaper said, she's gone to his head
They look just two Gurus in drag
Christ! You know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
They way of things are going
They're going to crusify me.

Caught the early plan 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
They way of things are going
They're going to crusify me.

They way of things are going They're going to crusify me.
