"We're All Water" as written by and Yoko Ono....
There may not be much difference
Between Chairman Mao and Richard Nixon
If we strip them naked

There may not be much difference
Between Marilyn Monroe and Lenny Bruce
If we check their coffins

There may not be much difference
Between White House and Hall of People
If we count their windows

There may not be much difference
Between Raquel Welch and Jerry Rubin
If we hear their heartbeat

We're all water from different rivers
That's why it's so easy to meet
We're all water in this vast, vast ocean
Someday we'll evaporate together

There may not be much difference
Between Eldrige Cleaver and Queen of England
If we bottle their tears

There may not be much difference
Between Manson and the Pope
If we press their smile

There may not be much difference
Between Rockefeller and you
If we hear you sing

There may not be much difference
Between you and me
If we show our dreams

We're all water from different rivers
That's why it's so easy to meet
We're all water in this vast, vast ocean
Someday we'll evaporate together

What's the difference?
What's the difference?

There's no difference!
There's no difference!
What's the difference?

    General CommentI cannot believe that there are no comments on this.
    But that's not the part that really gets me.
    It's that this is listed as just a John Lennon song.
    What about Yoko Ono?! ugh.
    She's so wonderful on this track!
    I especially love the last time she asks, "What's the difference?"
    She sounds so vulnerable and I think it's the moment where the song's meaning is best conveyed.
    The meaning of course is simple; we're all the same when you think about it so what's the point of war?, but it's then that the emotion involved hits you the most.
    I love, love, love, love this song.

    General CommentI never noticed or thought about it, but Yoko mentions Charlie Manson in this. That probablt freaked Charlie out. "They ARE talking about me."
