14 LYRICS FROM: HAITI AID LIVE: BEATLES SONGS



by Troy

Give Peace A Chance / Bombin' Nation Medley


LeadBGV
Everybody's talkin' about revelation(You say you want a revolution)
Everybody's fightin' 'bout evolution(To change the constitution)
Everybody's talkin' 'bout politicians(You say you got a real solution)
Everybody's sellin' out their religions

All we are saying_______
Is give peace a chance___

They shot John (Lennon) and they shot Ghandi(Talkin' bout devastation)
They shot King and they shot Kennedy(To stop the conversation)
They crucified The Prince of Peace(Talkin' bout a bombin' nation)
to stop them talkin' 'bout loving your enemies

So we are saying_______
Give peace a chance___

"Christian" boys man battle stations(Killin' off populations)
To feed the greed of brain dead nations(Slayin' for the corporation)
War inflation creates depression(Taxin' my contribution)
Making great your tribulation



Come Together (Parody of Beatles' Come Together)

______
Lyrics from the Haiti Relief Concert:

CHANT: ||: EN AYTI! :||

Rape Haiti Frenchman wearin' metal thugboots
Stole your gold and silver; cut your trees and women
Dragged you Africans through mud and heat
Killed off Haiti's natives shoot his guns and disease
SHOCK!

Sailed Queen's Columbus sucked your Eastern island
Breedin' Catholic rats with Spanish flags a flyin'
Makin' Haitians slave away afar
Scraped a line in your sand Spaniards called the D.R.
Come together
Right now
En Haiti

Flew in the U.N. spendin' funny money
Dig white greedy fingers down black needy tummies
Floatin' loans to bone and own Haiti
One thing I can tell you Haiti got to be FREE
Come together right now
En AYti

Imagine (Parody Of John Lennon's Imagine)

Imagine this/here is heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us sacred sky
Imagine all the people
Living for The Way

Imagine ... no countries (nations)
It isn't hard to do
Nothing (no nations) to kill or die for
And no (free from) (false) religion too

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
You___

CHORUS: You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And we all will live...
We'll live as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No greed; no hunger
A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the earth

CHORUS

A Day In Haiti's Life (Parody of A Day In The Life)

[The following from the Haiti relief concert]

I read the news about Haiti
Half million people died in Port Au Prince
And though the news was rather sad
No tears came to my eyes
Watching the photographs...

Though Haiti's two hours south by plane
We hadn't noticed Haitians share our race
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd heard the name before
Nobody was really sure if Haiti is in Africa

I saw a film about Haiti
United Nations mailing token aid
And then the nations turned away
But I just had to help
Love gives me no choice

I'd love to turn____ you____ on____
[To help Haiti]

Woke up, fell out of bed
Gave no thought to Haitian dead
Found my way downstairs and ate my feast
Forgetting Haiti's suffering
In my beautiful American dream

(Oh__oh__oh_ohhh...)
(Ohhh) by the dawn's early light
Rocket's red glare
H bombs bursting in air

I heard the news about Haiti
Half million holes in Haiti's soil today
And though the holes were rather small
They had to dig them all
Now they know how many graves it takes to fill Cite Soleil

I'd love to turn____ you____ on____
[To help Haiti]


Getting Better

||: I believe! :||

//Getting Better All The Time
Better, better, better \\

I used to get mad at my school
The teachers who fought me weren't cool
Holding me down, turning me round
Fooling me up with their rules

I believe it's gettin better
Gettin' better all the time
I believe it's gettin better
Gettin better
Since you'll be mine
Getting so much better all the time

Me used to be angry young man
Me hiding me head in the sand
You gave me Your Word
I finally heard
I'm doing the best that I can

Key Of C, D E

A Hard Long Fight (Parody Of A Hard Day's Night)

It's been a Long hard Fight
And I've been fighting for the truth
It's been a Long hard Fight
They beat me up like they beat you

But when I start praising you
I find the things that you do
You make me feel alright

When I praise you
everything seems to be right
In your arms
feelin' you holdin' me tight

It's been a Long hard Fight
The world beat me like a dog
It's been a Long hard Fight
The church is sleeping like a log

But when your Spirit comes in
I know that we're gonna win
and so I feel alright

It's been a Long hard Fight
I've been fighting for what's right
It's been a Long hard Fight
The battle drags me through the night

Key of G

Luchando
Peleando
