John Lennon

We're All Water

John Lennon

 

There may be not much difference
Between Chairmon Mao and Richard Nixon
If we strip them naked.

There may be not much difference
Between Marylin Monroe and Lenny Bruce
If we check their coffins.

There may be not much difference
Between White House and and Hall of People
If we count their windows.

There may be not much difference
Between Raquel Welch and Jerry Rubin
If we hear their heartbeat.

We are all water from different rivers
That’s why it’s so easy to to meet
We are all water in this vast, vast ocean
Someday we’ll evaporate together.

There may be not much difference
Between Eldridge Cleaver and Queen of England
If we bottle their tears

There may be not much difference
Between Charles Manson and the Pope
If we press their smile

There may be not much difference
Between Rockefeller and you
If we hear you sing.

There may be not much difference
Between Rockefeller and you
If we show our dreams
