"Revolution (beatles Cover)" as written by John Winston Lennon and Paul James Mccartney....
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
Alright
Alright

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
You know we're doing what we can
But when 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
Alright
Alright

You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
Alright
Alright

[Repeat: x7]
Alright

    General CommentGood cover, and I'm very skeptical of beatle covers. I love these guys, why can't they rock like they used to?

    General CommentWell, I think they rocked throughout their whole career, but responding to your comment is useless now, since you posted it in 2002....

    The cover reflects the more pop-oriented music they've been striving for since Tiny Music...

    It's not a pefect cover, but, with covers, I like to pretend whoever is covering the song really wrote it, and judge it from there. Besides for Weiland straining his voice a couple of times through the song, STP do a good job...

    If you would like to know the meaning of the song, then go to the Beatles page, though the meaning isn't exactly hard to find...
