The Beatles, “The Ballad of John and Yoko”

Standing in 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 / The way things are going / They’re gonna crucify me

Finally made the plane into Paris / Honeymooning down by the Seine / Peter Brown called to say “You can make it OK. / You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain”

Christ! You know it ain’t easy / You know how hard it can be / The way things are going / They’re gonna crucify 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 / The way things are going / They’re gonna crucify 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 lightning trip to Vienna / Eating chocolate cake in a bag / The newspapers said “She’s gone to his head. / They look just like two Gurus in a drag”

Christ! You know it ain’t easy / You know how hard it can be / The way things are going / They’re gonna crucify me

Caught the early plane 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 / The way things are going / They’re gonna crucify me

The way things are going / They’re gonna crucify me
