Ballad Of John And Yoko Lyrics - The Beatles

Review The Song (3)



Standing in the dock at Southampton,
Trying to get to Holland or France.
The man in the mac said, "You've got to go back".
You know they didn't even give us a chance.
Christ you know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me.
Finally made the plane into Paris,
Honey mooning down by the Seine.
Peter Brown called to say,
"You can make it O.K.,
You can get married in Gibraltar, near Spain".
Christ you know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me.
Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton,
Talking in our beds for a week.
The newspapers said, "Say what you doing in bed?"
I said, "We're only trying to get us some peace".
Christ you know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me.
Saving up your money for a rainy day,
Giving all your clothes to charity.
Last night the wife said,
"Oh boy, when you're dead
You don't take nothing with you
But your soul - think!"
Made a lightning trip to Vienna,
eating chocolate cake in a bag.
The newspapers said, "She's gone to his head,
They look just like two gurus in drag".
Christ you know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me.
Caught an early plane back to London.
Fifty acorns tied in a sack.
The men from the press said, "We wish you success,
It's good to have the both of you back".
Christ you know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me.
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me.

Aside from Dave not knowing anything about the Beatles, he also doesn't seem to have any reading comprehension skills. Fisrt, the title: John (Lennon) and Yoko (Ono), his wife. About their hardship when they got married: she is Japanese, taboo if not unacceptable; John changed somewhat drastically musically and personally (eg. clothing: "guru's in drag")many credited her for negatively influencing/controlling him and subsequently the Beatles possibly causing the rift (Lennon/Mccartney)and break up (obviously not at this time). Secondly, regarding the interpretation of the lyrics (which I always though were completely straight forward), there is plainly no reference to her cheating on him and it clearly states they BOTH went back to London.

apparently dave doesnt know much about the beatles... this song actually depicts well what happened between lennon and his wife. the references to the different cities where the two had their famous anti war bed ins.



A strange affair | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/26/09

It obviously means that 2 lovers are going on a honeymoon over Europe. The groom (obviously John) is struggling to pay for the honeymoon and Yoko (strange name for a woman!) is losing interest. John consults the papers to try and help their failing marriage (?) yet Yoko has an affair with another man. John, who is very religeous, gives up and flies back to London.
