Written by john lennon and paul mccartney
Released as a european b-side in august, 1988

Everybody is talking about blagism
Shagism, dragism and madism
Ragism and tagism bob tailing
Thisism, thatism, ism, ism, ism
George chisolm, yes

All we are saying
Is give peace a chance
All we are saying
Is give peace a chance

Everybodys talking about ministers
Sinisters, banisters, canisters
Roger bannisters, bishops, bishops
Bishop auckland, rabbis, popeyes, bye-byes
Max bygraves and everybody else

All we are saying
Is give peace a chance
All we are saying
Is give peace a chance

Everybodys talking about revolution
Evolution, the everly brothers, mastication
Euston station, fladulation, flatulation
Regulations, integration, mediation
United nations, congratulations

All we are saying
Is give peace a chance
All we are saying
Is give peace a chance

Everybody in the soviet union, unite
Go down to the shops and talk about john and yoko
Timothy leary, barbara windsor, yoko ono, madonna
Bobby dylan, bobby charlton, eddie charlton
Tommy cooper and the amazing horseradish dancers
Derek baker, norman mailer, alan ginsberg and the hare krishna three

All we are saying
Is give peace a chance
All we are saying
Is give peace a chance

Everybodys talking about gagism, tagism
Shagism, dragism, madism
Ragism, tagism, botulism, thisism, thatism
Listen to this

Everybodys talking about ministers
Sinisters, banisters, canisters
Bishops, bishops, bishops avenue
Why not talk about bishops avenue
Ive got a lovely house on bishops avenue

Everybodys talking about popeye, olive oyl
Everybody, everybody, everybody, mrs. jean schnook
Twenty three chepstow villas
Because they are the next contestant on make a b-side

All we are saying
Is give peace a chance
All we are saying
Is give peace a chance
