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

Power to the people!
Power to the people!
Power to the people!
Power to the people!
Power to the people!
Power to the people!
Power to the people!
Power to the people!
Power to the people!

Standing on the corner, just me and Yoko Ono
We was waiting for her hour to land
Up come a man with a guitar in his hand
"Have a marijuana if you can"
Well his name was David Peel and we found that he was real
"The Pope smokes dope every day"
Up come the police shoved us off the street
Singing "Power to the people today!"

New York City!
Madison Square Garden!
Hey what´s happenin´ man?

Went back to Kansas City, laid down the nitty gritty
With the Elephant´s Memory Band
Laid something down as the news spread around
About the Plastic Ono Elephant´s Memory Band
Played some Tutti Frutti and played some funky boogie
"Long Tall Sally's a man."
Up come a preacherman trying to be a teacher
Singing, "God's a red herring in drag!"

New York City!
New York City!
New York City!
Que pasa, New York?
Que pasa, New York?

Well New York City, babe!
New York!
New York City!

Yeah New York City!

Down in the village!
New York City!

Come on hit it!
Ah what a bad ass city!

Yeah come on!
