Dear John.....


Twenty five years ago. Hardly seems possible. The Lady was pregnant for our second who was born on the twenty first. I cried twice that month. Once for a death, once for a birth.
Out of the countless Beatles fans, you could catagorize people into two positions. Those that related to Paul, and those that related to John. Paul was clean, fun loving and liked to keep things simple. John was dark, more complex.
Whereas Paul talked of "silly little love songs", John wanted rock that inspired change and tackled the problems of love and the hardships of life.
John wrote,

How Do You Sleep
So sgt. pepper took you by surprise
You better see right through that mother’s eyes
Those freaks was right when they said you was dead
The one mistake you made was in your head
Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

you live with straights who tell you you was king
Jump when your momma tell you anything
The only thing you done was yesterday
And since you’re gone you’re just another day
Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?
Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?
A pretty face may last a year or two
But pretty soon they’ll see what you can do
The sound you make is muzak to my ears
You must have learned something in all those years
Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

And Paul wrote,

Too Many People

Too many people going underground,
Too many reaching for a piece of cake.
Too many people pulled and pushed around,
Too many waiting for that lucky break.

That was your first mistake,
You took your lucky break and broke it in two.
Now what can be done for you?
You broke it in two.

Too many people sharing party lines,
Too many people never sleep in late.
Too many people paying parking fines,
Too many hungry people losing weight.

That was your first mistake,
You took your lucky break
and broke it in two.
Now what can be done for you?
You broke it in two.

Too many people preaching practices,
Don't let 'em tell you what you wanna be.
Too many people holding back
This is crazy, and baby, it's not like me.
That was your last mistake,
I find my love awake and waiting to be
.Now what can be done for you?
She's waiting for me

I'm still in John's corner. Says alot about me...........
