gimme some truth!

i am breaking a self-made rule here. i said no politics, (or religion), but . . .
i am really sick of all the things our government is doing these days, (especially the last few). i mean, even more so than the usual fed-up-with-the-whole-thing feeling that has been on-going since 2000. and all the media is just feeding into all this crap. is there really only two or three people that matter in this world?
did i say i was really sick? . . .
pardon me while i crawl to the bathroom, wretchin' and growlin' this song . . .

gimme some truth (from imagine)

I'm sick and tired of hearing things
From uptight, shortsighted, narrow-minded hypocrites.
All I want is the truth,
Just gimme some truth!

I've had enough of reading things
By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians.
All I want is the truth,
Just gimme some truth!

No short-haired, yellow-bellied, son-of-tricky dickey
Is gonna mother hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocket full of soap.
Money for dope.
Money for rope.

I'm sick to death of seeing things
From tight-lipped, condescending mama's little chauvinists.
All I want is the truth,
Just gimme some truth!

I've had enough of watching scenes
Of schizophrenic, egocentric, paranoic primadonnas.
All I want is the truth,
Just gimme some truth!

(i'd look for something cool to post, but i just don't feel like it, dig it out and play it yerself, or just turn on the t.v.!
. . . um, shucks, i still don't feel any better, maybe once more but LOUDER!)

What a great song! I love the first Plastic Ono Band album, and Imagine is pretty damned good too! Lennon was a great one.

yeah, i would have to say p.o.b. is my fave lennon album also.
'gimme some truth' was started during the get back sessions, at least there are snippets of it on some of the tapes.
funny how the real true songs about truth are time-less . . .
