   Come Together
by John T. Marck


Come Together

This song was written by John Lennon during his and Yoko's bed-in in Toronto in May 1969. It came about when their friend, Timothy Leary, the LSD drug mahatma and self-proclaimed liberator of the world's collective mind, slowed up at the bed-in. At this time, Leary had made a decision to run for political office, and came up with the campaign slogan of "Come Together." With this slogan in mind, he asked John to write him a song using it, that his followers could sing on the campaign trail. Lennon's take on the slogan was to come together and join the party, and wrote the song. Before Leary could use it, he was arrested and went to jail. As a result of Leary being gone, Lennon figured his obligation to him was no longer in force, thus he and The Beatles recorded it.

Here come old flat top,

he come grooving up slowly,

he got joo joo eyeballs

He want holy roller,

He got hair down to his knees

Got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine,

he got toe jam football,

he got monkey finger

He shoot Coca Cola,

he say I know you, you know me

One thing I can tell you is you got to be free

Come together,

right now,

over me

He bag production,

he got walrus gumboot,

he got O-no sideboard

He one spinal cracker,

he got feet down below his knees

Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease

Come together,

right now,

over me

He roller coaster,

he got early warning,

he got muddy water,

he one Mojo filter

He say one and one and one is three,

got to be good looking 'cos he's so hard to see

Come together

right now,

over me
