Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky.
Imagine all the people,
Living for today yu-huh.

Imagine there's no countries,
It isn't hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
And no religion too.
Imagine all the people,
Living life in peace yu-huh.

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man.
Imagine all the people,
Sharing all the world yu-huh.

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will be as one.

    A wonderful sentiment. Religion and greed have driven every war since caveman. They are both really about money, and controlling the masses. Nothing more. It's a damned shame that we all don't get it ! Love and good health and happiness to all.
