Love you john, esp for this song
John's sass is real
c:
WOW GREAT LYRICS & what a feeling I get from this song There is more to life then working for the man (person) & paying your bills. FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS from your heart
I have a glass figurine of a Roman ruler that does my chores... I call him Working Glass Nero.
one of John's best solo songs

Story of my life in one song...
They kill our prophets while we stand by and look. The catcher in rye by their side, hypnotized assassin book. Five shots ring out, and the patsy paces back & forth, realize the life he took.

Today is the anniversary of his death...I love his music and wish that he was still here making more. Miss you John.
John tells us in the fewest words possible how f**ked-up modern society is. God bless his soul for his truth.
Keep you doped with religion and sex and t.v.
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
Bombshell from one of the greatest till now!! What lyrics and the greatest Beatle!! We miss u dearly John...
Could not be more relevant than today or for that matter for all time. This could be the song of all the rovolutions of all time
A simple song yet so powerful
@steelers - he is not saying that it is a good thing to be, if you really listen to the lyrics. he is not glorifying it at all.
A working class hero is something 2 b ?? Says who JL maybe in the 60's an 70's but I wouldn't go that far today
But you're still f**king peasants as far as I can see~
Best line - Keep you doped with religion, sex and tv - John had it so right, that is how the powers that be stay in power.
george hunt lennon#1 no doubt
now they cencer me from saying f u c k
why did they leave out f**k from the lyrics
art58290
gone way too soon,all that music not written
so ahead of his time. welcome to the New World Order :(
john lennon is and will always be my hero
John is the best!!!
He say "so f**king crazy you can't follow their rules" not "so crazy" and "but you're still f**king peasants as far as I can see" once again not "but you're still peasants". Why censor the lyrics and not the song? I would guess he wrote and sang it the way he did for a reason.
WOW!!!! That was GREAT!!!

Lennon was so right. Tell it John
Too bad that most people know this song by Green Day these days. The original Lennon version is soooooooo much better. F**kin' A John.

Lennon channeling Dylan with his own groovy twist! Eat your heart out Bob! If only the old boy could have stayed focused! And of course not been taken from us so cruely! Miss you as ever John!
Lennon at his best!
Who covers this song?
OMG this is the best song in the world.
bionicle92
