    Hey CWers as I'm not likely to be around much the next few weeks I wanted to post what I have a scan of or at least this one.
    A quote button from John Lennon "All We Are Saying Is Give Peace A Chance"
    The Song on 45 was released July 4th 1969 (UK) July 7th 1969 (US)
    The B side a forgettable "Remember Love" by Yoko Ono

    As a protest chant it was used from 1969 to date, Pete Seeger led a crowd of hundreds of thousands on Nov 15, 1969 in the singing of “Give Peace a Chance.” interspersed phrases like “Are you listening, Nixon?” and “Are you listening, Pentagon?”

    In part the song goes:
    Ev'rybody's talking 'bout
    Bagism, Shagism, Dragism, Madism, Ragism, Tagism
    This-ism, That-ism, is-m, is-m, is-m
    All we are saying is give peace a chance (x2)
    Hit it C'mon,
    Ev'rybody's talking about
    Ministers, sinisters, banisters and canisters
    Bishops and Fishops and Rabbis and Popeyes and bye-bye, bye-byes
    All we are saying is give peace a chance (x2)
    Let me tell you now
    Ev'rybody's talking 'bout
    Revolution, evolution, masturbation, flagellation, regulation, integrations
    Meditations, United Nations, congratulations
    All we are saying is give peace a chance (repeated 14 times)
