Imagine One Day
Written by: Grace Young
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: ()

Lyrics:
Too many people got nothin’ to eat

While the rich man a feast on his kill

Too many people got blood on their hands

Thinkin’ there’s nothin’ else they can do

And you go ’bout your day thinkin’ it’s okay

Won’t hurt you now if you just look away

Imagine one day it’s you, what would you do?

Imagine one day it’s you

You give your all

Yeah, you give your hand

Your compassion it flow from the source

You build you’re world here on equality

And together you find what your worth

Come on!

Stand up for freedom, the people will lead

Stand up for justice, oh let it be me

Chorus:

Imagine one day it’s you, what would you do?

Imagine one day it’s you, it’s your turn now

Imagine one day it’s you, what you gonna do?

Imagine one day it’s you

Bridge:

You think you’re different

Nothin’ could happen to you

But tables always turn

So you’ll need a helpin’ hand

To build on rock rather than a foundation of sand

Chorus

How many lives will it take to realize

That we’re killin’ ourselves all the while

How many people must die here in vain

In the name of the price that we pay

Come on!

Stand up for freedom, the people will lead

Stand up for justice, oh let it be me
