Song Lyric Sunday: Namecheck – ‘God’

This week, Jim has posed a it of a tricky one for Song Lyric Sunday – a song that references the name of another group.

I know that there’s a song out there somewhere that references a ‘Grateful Dead sticker on a Cadillac’ (is it The Eagles?), but I’m going for John Lennon here drawing a bold line under his previous existence:

God is a Concept by which we measure our pain
I’ll say it again
God is a Concept by which we measure our pain

I don’t believe in magic
I don’t believe in I-ching
I don’t believe in Bible
I don’t believe in Tarot
I don’t believe in Hitler
I don’t believe in Jesus
I don’t believe in Kennedy
I don’t believe in Buddha
I don’t believe in Mantra
I don’t believe in Gita
I don’t believe in Yoga
I don’t believe in Kings
I don’t believe in Elvis
I don’t believe in Zimmerman
I don’t believe in Beatles

I just believe in me, Yoko and me, and that’s reality

The dream is over
What can I say?
The dream is over
Yesterday
I was the dreamweaver
But now I’m reborn
I was the walrus
But now I’m John
And so, dear friends,
You’ll just have to carry on
The dream is over

Written by John Lennon
