Instant Karma
John Lennon
(Recorded live at Madison Square Garden, New York, 30 August 1972)

"Oh no, no, no, no!"
"Let us play, the choir comes in on time."
"If you know the song, join in cause were all alone up here."
"Im only just beginning to understand what this record was about."

"Two, three, four!"

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon, you're gonna be dead
What in the world you thinking of
Laughing in the face of love
What on earth you tryin' to do
It's up to you, yeah you

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you right in the face
You better get yourself together darlin'
Join the human race
How in the world you gonna see
Laughin' at fools like me
Who on earth dyou think you are
A super star
Well, all right you are.

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah, we all shine on
On and on
Come on, yeah!

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah, we all shine on
On and on and on and on.

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Its gonna knock you right off your feet
You better recognize your brother
Its ev'ryone you meet
Why in the world are we here?
Surely not to live in pain and fear
And why on earth are you there?
When you're ev'rywhere
Come and get your share.

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah, we all shine on
On and on and on and on.

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah, we all shine on
On and on and on and one more time!

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah, we all shine on
On and on and on and on, on and on and on.

"Well get it right next time!"
