Imagine (4 Young Lads)

I wrote this song with 60s Rock in mind. The Beatles helped lead the way, so it has a strong wording that it is about The Beatles. But it is more about what was happening in the 60s.


There must have been a billion girls
Tears in their eye's crying out Pauls name
Dad said the worlds gone crazy
The news man said the kids have all gone insane
Yeah - thats when the whole thing blossomed
Sure did change those whorn out borring days
Bulbs popping - camras rolling
Life was young
Rock N Roll had set a blaze


Imagine four young lads
Setting the world on fire
Imagine a craze so mad
Out of control with desire

There must have been a billion guys
Stars in their eye's playing out Johns songs
Mom said their hair's so shabby
The barber said that hair's just way to long
Yeah - that's when the party started
Felt like it was never gonna end
Drums pounding guitar screaming
Grass was green
Peace and love had set a trend

Repeat chorus

Oh good times they never have to end
You can visit any time you want - just bring your ears and your mind to attend

This is honestly the best I've heard from you, Terry. You have your vocals in a perfect place for this song and everything really sounds just right.

I REALLY like what you do after 1:50 with the song......and then ending with another chorus.

You have captured that moment in time very well....I was there for it and you brought me back for 3:07. Thanks for that.

This is an excellent piece of work!
