Lennon

The John Lennon album Imagine is probably my favourite Lennon solo record, it still has the emotional honesty and raw anger of Plastic Ono Band but is probably a little bit softer and has more melody. It is a fantastic record and listening to it today whilst writing reminded me how much I love it.

I thought I would share with you the lyrics to one of my favourite tracks as I definitely relate to the words and it is just full of Lennon’s wry humour

Crippled Inside by John Lennon

You can shine your shoes and wear a suit

You can comb your hair and look quite cute

You can hide your face behind a smile

One thing you cant hide Is when you’re crippled inside
You can wear a mask and paint your face

You can call yourself the human race

You can wear a collar and a tie

One thing you cant hide Is when you’re crippled inside

Well now you know that your cat has nine lives

Nine lives to itself

But you only got one and a dogs life ain’t fun mamma take a look outside
You can go to church and sing a hymn

You can judge me by the color of my skin

You can live a lie until you die

One thing you cant hide Is when you’re crippled inside
Well now you know that your cat has nine lives

Nine lives to itself

But you only got one and a dogs life ain’t fun mamma take a look outside
You can go to church and sing a hymn

You can judge me by the color of my skin

You can live a lie until you die

One thing you cant hide Is when you’re crippled inside

Let me know what you're thinking...
