Im The Greatest
John Lennon

"Okey, okey, shall we try another one? Its the intro that were worst on now, a bit slow, isnt it?"
"Yeah ..."
"Yeah, too? On the tom toms or something, about four, okey, shall we try it?"
"Okey boys, this is it!"
Hey, hey, one, two, three, four!"

When I was a little boy
Way back home in Liverpool
My mama told me, I was great.

Then when I was a teenager
I knew that I had got something goin
My baby told me I was great.

Now Im a man
A woman took me by the hand
And she told me...I was great.

I was in the greatest show on earth
For what it was worth
And now Im thirty-two
And all I wanna do is boogaloo!

Hey!

Yeah, I look at myself in the mirror
I see my wife and kids
And they tell me...youre great.

Now let me introduce to you
The one and only Billie Shears
Ah, shes thirty-two
And all she wants to do is boogaloo!

Hey!

Hey, hey, hey, hear them say
My mama told me I was great.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

"Lets go again, go straight from the top!"
"Okey, thats okey...bang...two, three, four!"
