"Nobody Told Me" as written by and John Lennon....
Everybody's talking and no one says a word
Everybody's making love and no one really cares
There's Nazis in the bathroom just below the stairs
Always something happening and nothing going on

There's always something happening cooking and nothing in the pot
They're starving back in China so finish what you got
They're starving back in China so finish what you got
Nobody told me there'd be days like these

Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Strange days indeed
strange days indeed
Everybody's runnin' and no one makes a move

Everyone's a winner
and no one seems to lose
There's a little yellow idol to the north of Katmandu
Everybody's flying and no one leaves the ground

Everybody's crying and no one makes a sound
There's a place for us in movies you just gotta stay around

Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Strange days indeed
most peculiar
Mama

Everybody's smoking and no one's getting high

Everybody's flying and never touch the sky
There's Ufo's over New York and I ain't too surprised
Nobody told me there'd be days like these

Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Strange days indeed
most peculiar, Mama

    General CommentI know everyone always makes post that say this but I can't believe nobody's posted on this song. Right now it's actually December 9th and yesterday it was the 25th anniversary of John's death. They played this song on the radio and it just absolutely blew my mind. I had forgotten all about it. It was like it was meant to happen. Usually on the 8th I listen to John's happier somewhat sillier stuff. It's gets me out of the sad mood thinking about him puts me in on this day. It's a great contrast to his very serious songs. That stuff is absolutely genius but it's nice to think about him in a happier light.

    Anyway, I think this song's about how people believe in things but never really do anything about it. They don't try to change it just try to live with it. Or it could just be a silly song John wrote. I'd kinda prefer the latter. "They're starving back in China so finish what you got." Lol.
