Bigger than Jesus
(Lennon lyrics in parenthesis)

Another beast rises up
with a cross in it’s hand.
Will it walk on the water
or sink through the sand?
As it kicks out the sinners and the filth
From our town,
Its angels get drunk
in the name of some clown
Who was nailed to a tree
for the good of mankind
but between you and me
he was wasting his time.

“ I’ll say it again
God is a concept by which we measure our pain”

“Imagine there’s no heaven”

“We are bigger than Jesus”
theres no need for proof
He was shot like a dig for telling the truth
Bigger than Jesus
I’ll say it aloud
“as good as Beethoven
With a ticket to ride”
Bigger than Jesus in John chapter five
They can say what they like but we’ll keep the faith alive

They’re still burning records in bonfires for christ
Though Bible Belt punching is way over-priced
Saying praise the lord brother don’t listen to that beat
Oe we’ll kick you in the teeth leave you dead in the street
Be a sheep in the field
Do the good shepherd walk
Too stupid to think
An original thought
Lik
Who wrote revelation
Was inspired from above
“I wanna hold your hand
Money Can’t buy me love”

We are bigger than Jesus
I’ll say it aloud
“as good as Beethoven
With a ticket to ride”
Bigger than Jesus in John chapter five
They can say what they like but we’ll keep the faith alive

the Beatle boycott American radio hosts:
"This is Doug Layton and Tommy Charles we are reminding you that our fantastic Beatles boycotted is still in effect. Don’t you forget what the Beatles have said. Don’t forget to take your Beatles records and your Beatles paraphernalia to one of our fourteen pick up points in Birmingham Alabama and turn them in this week if possible. Don’t you forget what the Beatles have said

Lennon:
I’m not saying that we’re better out or greater or comparing us with Jesus Christ as a person or god as a thing or whatever it is. We meant more to kids than Jesus did.

background:

"Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that; I'm right and I'll be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first – rock 'n' roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me." 03/04/1966 Evening Standard
