Revolution 1

by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

You say you want a revolution,
Well, you know we all wanna change the world.
You tell me that it's evolution,
Well, you know we all wanna change the world.
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out, in?

Don't you know it's gonna be alright?

You say you got a real solution,
Well you know we'd all love to see the plan.
You ask me for a contribution,
Well, you know we're all doing what we can.
If you want money for people with minds that hate,
All I can tell you is, "Brother, you have to wait".

You say you'll change the constitution,
Well, you know we'd all love to change your head.
You tell me it's the institution,
Well, you know you better free your mind instead.
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao,
You ain't gonna make it with anyone anyhow.
