                      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 may say I’m a dreamer
                       But I’m not the only one
                    I hope someday you’ll join us
                    And the world will be as one
                        Imagine no possessions
                          I wonder if you can
                    No need for greed and 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 someday you’ll join us
