John Lennon was a singer and songwriter and one of the co-founders of the Beatles. He was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.
"Imagine" was inspired by several poems from Yoko Ono's book Grapefruit. Lennon composed the song one morning in 1971, on a Steinway piano in his bedroom. It would go on to become the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed single of his solo career.
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 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 You... 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 Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people sharing all the world 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
