John Lennon – Give Me Some Truth lyrics

I'm sick and tired of hearing
From uptight-short sighted-
Narrow minded hypocritics

All I want is the truth
Just give me some truth

I've had enough of reading
By nuerotic-pyschotic-
Pig headed politicians

All I want is the truth
Just give me some truth

No short haired-yellow bellied
Son of tricky dicky
Is gonna mother hubbard
Soft soap me
With just a pocketful of hope
Money for dope
Money for rope

I'm sick to death of seeing
From tight lipped-
Condescending -mommies little

All I want is the truth
Just give me some truth

I've had enough of watching
Of schizophrenic - ego - centric
- paranoic - prima - donnas

All I want is the truth
Just give me some truth

    As a teacher I am held accountable for an incredible array of standards and requirement established by the very sorts of people that john lennon writes about in this song. Few, if any, of them have ever taught an hour much less 35 years as I have, yet they feel that simply because they have been democratically elected to local, state and federal legislative bodies, they have the right to use that privilege in what is an increasingly fascistic facsimile of legislation.
