DT Lyrics:









Subject: I dreamed I saw John Lennon last night
From: Donuel
Date: 05 Dec 02 - 08:53 AM

Last night John Lennon, Bob Marley, Jimmy Hendrix and Bob Dylan
jammed together in my dream. This is what they said:



300 years ago
Arabs sold the slaves.
Africa divided
white man reaped da gold.

W is a traitor
a rich man we are told.
Whats he done for people?
They're lied to, killed and sold.

Brother against brother
Is what the Man counts on
When we're all together
All his power's gone

Love your child and free em
To reap what they can sow
If you want your freedom
Its all in what you know

They say Raggea's done
Hip Hop thinks it flows
fulla hate and short on fun
The singers come and go

Gangsta rappers boast
still none outrun the gun
Our songs are sung by ghosts
like ice out in the sun

US rules, Africa fades
Half of Cape town
now dies of Aids
buried in da ground.

AIDS slaves in their graves
Don't know who put them down.
Don't know who made the virus
Don't know who wears the crown

Hands that move against you
to put you on a slab
invents a brand new flu
deep within a lab

You've got to tell your neighbor
There is a message we must send...

Brother against brother
Is what the Man counts on
When we are together
All his power's gone

Freedom needs compassion
not jail for smokin herb
When freedom is rationed
Your life becomes absurd


We are not the infidel
We are not the enemy
We are just the people
We are you, you are me.

We all want to be free.

My dreams last night were considerably more mundane. Dreamt that some little kids were packing some live chickens into a box- when they put the rooster in, the kid slammed down the lid and of course the rooster leaped out. I showed them how to cajole the rooster into holding still as I eased down the lid.

I learn so much from my dreams... All I have to do now is find some chickens.

Or- horrors! am I that Machivellian?

Hey Donuel - if they come again tonight will you ask them to do something a little more up-beat? Then again, whatever gets you thru the night ...

I could not reist the temptation...
I dreamed I saw Lennon last night
Alive as you and me
I said but John your 10 years dead
But not my songs said he
But not my songs said he

In New York city John I says
As you were going along
He shot you on the street that day
Says John but not my songs
Says John but not my songs

That wannabe he killed you John
He shot you, as a sign
His fame he wanted to secure
Says John Just Imagine
Says John Just Imagine

And standing there he looked at me
In his shambolic stance
Takes more than guns to kill a man
We should give Peace a chance
We should give Peace a chance

Lennon aint dead he says to me
I ve'e been here all along
Where Peace and Music side by side
Exist you'll find my song
Exist you'll find my song

Around the world at Peace marches
In village and in town
Where anti war protests are heard
They'll claim me for their own
They'll claim me for their own

I dreamed I saw Lennon last night
Alive as you and me
I said but John your 10 years dead
But not my songs said he
But not my songs said he

Thanks you Don and Micca for both the 'down-beats' and the 'up-beats'.

Gotta have both to make music!

Thanks for inspiring me to remember John.

All you need is love ...

Kudos and hurray for Micca. The link to Joe Hill ocurred to me as well. Good job.

I can't write what Bob Dylan sings on the "dream plane" since his singing voice is more or less an audio version of a doctor's handwritting.

I'm just surprised that you can remember all of that!

"What the hell?" I agree- woke up this morning having dreamt that I was in the process of giving in to pleadings to take home a small nanny goat (she was black and tan and a little overweight, for those who don't remember their dream details). The problem was that I had already taken in three chickens, one of them a rooster (There's those chickens again!), and a rabbit. I had only a fairly big backyard, and had no idea how I would go about accommodating the whole menagerie.

Think I'd rather dream about Lennon.
