Lyrics for Revolution - Remastered 2009 by The Beatles:

Intro
Aah!

Verse 1
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

Chorus
Don't you know it's gonna be
Alright
Alright
Alright

Verse 2
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
We're all doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is, brother, you have to wait

Chorus
Don't you know it's gonna be
Alright
Alright
Alright

Instrumental Break

Verse 3
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 your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow

Chorus
Don't you know it's gonna be
Alright
Alright
Alright

Outro
Alright, alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright!

Song Facts

The B-side of The Beatles' best selling single “Hey Jude”, “Revolution” has John Lennon expressing doubt in regard to some of the tactics used by the 1968 protests. While the song was originally recorded as the calmer, bluesier “Revolution I” (with John using one of the takes to create the sound collage “Revolution 9” ), Paul and George felt it was too slow to follow John’s suggestion to use it as a single. Thus “Revolution” was re-recorded as a distortion-heavy hard rock track.
