Song lyrics
Two, one two three four
Everybody's talking about
Bagism, Shagism, Dragism, Madism, Ragism, Tagism
This-ism, that-ism, is-m, is-m, is-m
All we are saying is give peace a chance
All we are saying is give peace a chance

Come on
Everybody's talking about Ministers
Sinisters, Banisters and canisters
Bishops and Fishops and Rabbis and Pop eyes
And bye bye, bye byes

All we are saying is give peace a chance
All we are saying is give peace a chance

Let me tell you now
Everybody's talking about
Revolution, evolution, mastication
Flagellation, regulation, integrations
Meditations, United Nations
Congratulations

All we are saying is give peace a chance
All we are saying is give peace a chance

Everybody's talking about
John and Yoko, Timmy Leary, Rosemary
Tommy Smothers, Bobby Dylan, Tommy Cooper
Derek Taylor, Norman Mailer
Allen Ginsberg, Hare Krishna
Hare, Hare Krishna

All we are saying is give peace a chance
All we are saying is give peace a chance

To OsamaB. You have no idea what you are talking about. While this song does give a great message that the United States should listen to, warfar is far from their only means of exerting their power. I love this song not because it is a a good peice of music but because of the meaning and the sincere hope which Lennon is able to convey for a better world. I do not agree with the war in Iraq so don't call me a "War Monger". Or any of those other buzz words flying around right now. I am fed up with people discrediting the United States for everything. I am not American I am Canadian. The UNited States is dominate in almost all aspects of the world and that is why everyone hates them. Not just militarily. Economically. Their GDP is way more then anyone else including China. Culturally. American music is the most succesful in the world and hollywood spreads their culture aven further. Athletically. The United States are a power in everything which they actually care about. It won't be long until they are one of the best in soccer, and my beloved Canadians are having to deal with them more and more in hockey. Politically. The Americans are the most influential policy makers in the world. Any decision they make effects the whole world, and every decision other countries make must be made according to the American domination. This is just to name a few areas in which Americans dominate the world. They are truly the world power today. NO ONe else compares in either scape or intensity today. If you had thought about what you were saying before you posted that completely ignorant reaction you would surely realized this. Try not to be so easily sweeped up by a public sentiment of hatred against the United States.

even though this song was made in the 70's it still is so true today. We dont need war what we need is peace, perfect peace.

That is so true! If the yanks (and especally the lad called Mr. Bush) listen to this song, they might start thinking that war is NOT good for humans,or animals, or the world!!!!!!!
