Revolution

The Vietnam War was the longest war in American history. 60,000 americans died and there was also over 2 million Vietnamese deaths. At the time, there were many people against it, and even today Americans continue to question whether the war was necessary or not. "Revolution" is only but a small titch of the movement against the Vietnam War.

You say you want a revolutionWell, you know We all want to change the worldYou tell me that it's evolutionWell, you know We all want to change the worldBut when you talk about destructionDon't you know that you can count me outDon't you know it's gonna be all right?All right, all rightYou say you got a real solutionWell, you knowWe'd all love to see the planYou ask me for a contributionWell, you knowWe're all doing what we canBut if you want moneyFor people with minds that hateAll I can tell is brother you have to waitDon't you know it's gonna be all right?All right, all rightYou say you'll change the constitutionWell, you knowWe all want to change your headYou tell me it's the institutionWell, you knowYou better free you mind insteadBut if you go carrying pictures of chairman MaoYou ain't going to make it with anyone anyhowDon't you know it's gonna be all right?All right, all right!All right, all right, all right!All right, all right, all right!All right, all right!

History on the Vietnam War

"Revolution" was written in 1968 by John Lennon when he went on a trip to India. At the time, the Vietnam War was going on, and there were many radicals protesting against it. Like the radicals, Lennon hoped to make a change somehow, resulting in even more people joining the cause.
