Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil and Watercolor on Canvas.

"Revolution" is a song by the Beatles, written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. Three versions of the song were recorded in 1968, all during sessions for the Beatles' self-titled double album, commonly known as "the White Album": a slow, bluesy arrangement (titled "Revolution 1") that would make the final cut for the LP; a more abstract musical collage (titled "Revolution 9") that originated as the latter part of "Revolution 1" and appears on the same album; and the better-known, faster, hard rock version similar to "Revolution 1", released as the B-side of the "Hey Jude" single. Although the single version was issued first, it was recorded several weeks after "Revolution 1", as a re-make specifically intended for release as a single.

Revolution 1:

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be
All right, all right, all right
You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be
All right, all right, all right

You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We'd all love to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You better free your mind instead

But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain't gonna make it with anyone anyhow

Don't you know it's gonna be all right
You know it's gonna be all right
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
