Give Peace A Chance (U.S. Single Version) - Lyrics by Yoko Ono


Lyrics

Ev´rybody´s talkinbout:
Bagism and shagism and dragism and madism,
Ragism and tagism,
This-ism and that-ism, is-m, is-m, is-m.
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance.

Yeh!

Come on,
Ev´rybody´s talkinbout:
Ministers, sinisters, banisters and canisters,
Bishops, fishops, rabbis and popeyes´s,
Bye-bye, bye-bye, byes.
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance.

Let me tell you now,
Ev´rybody´s talkinbout:
Revolution, evolution, masturbation,
Flagellation, regulation, integrations,
Meditations, united nations, congratulations.
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance.

Oh, let's stick with it!
Ev´rybody´s talkinbout:
John and yoko, timmy leary, rosemary,
Tommy smothers, bobby dylan, tommy cooper,
Derek taylor, norman mailer, alan ginsberg,
Hare krishna, hare, hare, krishna.
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance.

Okay, beautiful! yeah!
Yeah! you made it!
