Some Time in New York City

Bellissima canzone, interpretata da John e Yoko, con il sax di Stan Bronstein. Un album prodotto da Phil Spector (oggi quasi ottantenne, detenuto per omicidio, molto malato e quindi ricoverato nell'ospedale di un carcere californiano...)
We are born in a prison
Raised in a prison
Sent to a prison called school

We cry in a prison
We love in a prison
We dream in a prison like fools

Wood becomes a flute when it's loved
Reach for yourself and your battered mates
Mirror becomes a razor when it's broken
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate

We live with no reason
Kicked around for no reason
Thrown out without reason like tools

We work in a prison
And hate in a prison
And die in a prison as a rule

Wood becomes a flute when it's loved
Reach for yourself and your battered mates
Mirror becomes a razor when it's broken
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate

We live in a prison
Among judges and wardens
And wait for no reason for you

We laugh in a prison
Go through all four seasons
And die with no vision of truth

Wood becomes a flute when it's loved
Reach for yourself and your battered mates
Mirror becomes a razor when it's broken
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate

Born in a prison!
Born in a prison!
Born in a prison!
Born in a prison!
Born in a prison!
Born in a prison!
