Stikkord: <span>buddha</span>

Kort tid før John Lennon ble skutt og drept spilte han inn denne sangen som et slags svar til Bob Dylans’s «Gotta Serve Somebody»:

(Kun lyd, ingen video…)

Tekst:
You say you found Jesus Christ
He’s the only one
You say you’ve found Buddha
Sittin’ in the sun
You say you found Mohammed
Facin’ to the East
You say you found Krishna
Dancin’ in the streets

Well there’s somethin’ missing in this God Almighty stew
And it’s your mother (your mother, don’t forget your mother, lad)
You got to serve yourself
Ain’t nobody gonna do it for you
You got to serve yourself
Ain’t nobody gonna do it for you
Well you may believe in devils and you may believe in lords
But if you don’t go out and serve yourself, lad, ain’t no room service here

It’s still the same old story
A bloody Holy War
A fight for love and glory
Ain’t gonna study war no more
A fight for God and country
We’re gonna set you free
We’ll put you back in the Stone Age
If you won’t be like me – get it?

You got to serve yourself
Ain’t nobody gonna do for you
You got to serve yourself
Ain’t nobody gonna do for you
Well you may believe in devils and you may believe in lords

‘But Christ, you’re gonna have to serve yourself and that’s all there is to it.
So get right back here it’s in the bloody fridge. God, when I was a kid.
Didn’t have stuff like this, TV-fuckin’ dinners and all that crap.
You fuckin’ kids are all the fuckin’ same! Want a fuckin’ car now…
Lucky to have a pair of shoes!’

You tell me you found Jesus Christ
Well that’s great and he’s the only one
You say you just found Buddha
Sittin’ on his ass in the sun
You say you found Mohammed
Kneeling on a bloody carpet facin’ the East
You say you found Krishna
With a bald head dancin’ in the street (‘Well, Christ, now you’re
being heard’)
