Observations of an Overthinker

Imagine

There’s another, much less important, argument going on right now about the #GalGadot rendition of “Imagine” by John Lennon. It’s a viral video full of “entitled rich people” who are apparently “tone-deaf” because they, too, felt helpless and thought spreading some joy would help. So… to try and even the playing field, I decided to rewrite the song with updated, timely lyrics that include all walks of life, not just the rich. Here ya go- (please be kind with me)

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Just kidding. It’s already perfect and you knew that. But some of you forgot. Remember we are all in this together.
