Imagine - John Lennon
Imagine there's no heaven It's easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky
Imagine all the people Living for today... Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace... You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will be as one Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people Sharing all the world... You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us And the world will live as one
