Mother
by John Lennon

Mother, you had me
But I never had you
I wanted you
But you didn't want me
So
I just got to tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye

Father, you left me
But I never left you
I needed you
But you didn't need me
So
I just got to tell
Goodbye
Goodbye

Children, don't do
What I have done
I couldn't walk
And I tried to run
So
I just got to tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye

Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go

If you came here to hate on John because he werent a good father to Julian, make sure to listen the part where he says "Children dont do what I have done. I couldnt walk, I tried to run", a.k.a, John knew he messed up, he didnt repeat the same mistakes with Sean, he knew how his childhood affected him in a bad way, he wasnt the John people THOUGHT they knew, he was in love with Yoko, he was trying to raise his own family -everything he wanted in his childhood-, his relationship with Julian was getting better... and then he was killed.

@Prutswerk perfectly put, at least for my purposes- coming from a different angle I think your comment makes it all the more clear that one's status as a great artist has nothing to do with their status as a human being. and I know of no court on earth that has excused an artist for any criminal act based on their damned fine canvases/films/novels.

@Prutswerk thats why i said clueless, im young (not that young) and i need teachings from people from all places. Thanks

Prutswerk

@Mister Bird.
I'm not being an asshole here but you're clueless indeed. And not just because you're religious (which doesn't help either) but that's not how repenting works.

Maybe the killing was repentment for his sins? I dont know, Im just a clueless religious person

Prutswerk

Stop rationalizing. When thing are shit, things are shit. Lennon was a good musician but a lousy parent and an abusive asshole. You got to ask yourself this question: How much talent must someone have before abusement is considered okay?
