"Awaiting on You All" as written by and George Harrison....
You don't need no love in
You don't need no bed pan
You don't need a horoscope or a microscope
The see the mess that you're in
If you open up your heart
You will know what I mean
We've been polluted so long
Now here's a way for you to get clean

By chanting the names of the Lord and you'll be free
The Lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see
Chanting the names of the Lord and you'll be free
The Lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see

You don't need no passport
And you don't need no visas
You don't need to designate or to emigrate
Before you can see Jesus
If you open up your heart
You'll see he's right there
Always was and will be
He'll relieve you of your cares

By chanting the names of the Lord and you'll be free
The Lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see
Chanting the names of the Lord and you'll be free
The Lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see

You don't need no church house
And you don't need no Temple
You don't need no rosary beads or them books to read
To see that you have fallen
If you open up your heart
You will know what I mean
We've been kept down so long
Someone's thinking that we're all green

And while the Pope owns fifty one percent of General Motors
And the stock exchange is the only thing he's qualified to quote us
The Lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see
By chanting the names of the Lord and you'll be free

    General CommentI also saw a slight dig at John Lennon in the first couple of verses when he talks about not needing a love-in or bed-pan (talking about John and Yoko's bed-in for peace) or needing a passport or visa (John's emigration to the US)

    General CommentI don't agree that it's about hinduism (why would he mention finding Jesus?). For that matter, he shows no favoritism to any particular religion. Instead, George is saying that you can find Lord / Jesus / God / whatever you want to call him / her, by pushing aside organized religion (you don't need "church", "temple", "rosary beads", or "books") in favor of internalized spirituality. Your path to God is inside ("open up your heart"), not through organized religion. George was certain a non-conformist! He never gets the credit that he truly deserves.

    My OpinionI've often wondered what is meant by "the pope owns 51% of General Motors". Clearly, it is not a reference to the Vatican pope, so I continue to wonder if it is some sort of reference to a guy named Carl Pope who actually had a connection to GM.
