give me some truth lyrics – john lennon

i’m sick and tired of hearing things
from uptight, short sighted
narrow-minded hypocritics
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 d*ck is gonna mother hubbard
soft soap me with just a pocketful of soap
it’s money for dope, money for rope

no short-haired, yellow-bellied
son of tricky d*ck is gonna mother hubbard
soft soap me with just a pocketful of soap
it’s 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 now

i’ve had enough of watching scenes
of schizophrenic, ego-centric
paranoiac, prima-donas
all i want is the truth now, now
just gimme some truth

no short-haired, yellow-bellied
son of tricky d*ck is gonna mother hubbard
soft soap me with just a pocketful of soap
it’s money for dope, money for rope

ah, i’m sick to death of hearing things
from uptight, short-sighted
narrow-minded hypocrites
all i want is the truth now
just gimme some truth now

i’ve had enough of reading things
by neurotic, psychotic
pig-headed politicians
all i want is the truth now
just gimme some truth now

all i want is the truth now
just gimme some truth now
all i want is the truth
just gimme some truth
all i want is the truth
just gimme some truth
all i want is the truth
