And to think that Lennon once cited the Kim Jong-il look-a-like's banshee-wailing, caterwauling as something "ahead of it's time" .... talk about "p-whipped" ....

Anyway, John Lennon rocking during his 'Yoko/post-Beatle' years: "New York City" (1972):

Standing on the corner, just me & Yoko One
We was waiting for Jerry to land,
Up come a man with the guitar in his hand
singing "have a marijuana if you can."
His name was David Peel
* and we found that he was real
He sang "The Pope smokes dope everyday!"
Up come a police man, shoved us up the street,
singing "Power to the people today!"

Que pasa New York?...Que pasa New York?

Well we went to Max's Kansas City, got down the nitty-gritty
With the Elephant's Memory band,
Laid something down as the news spread around
about the Plastic Ono-Elephant's Memory Band
Well we played some funky boogie and laid some tutti-frutti
singing "Long Tall Sally's a man"
Up come a preachman tryin' to be a teacher
singing "The Pope's a red herring in drag!"

Que pasa New York?...Que pasa New York?

Well we did the Staten Island Ferry, making movies for the telly
played the Fillmore and Apollo for freedom,
Tried to shake our image, just a cycling through the Village
but found that we had left it back in London
Well nobody came to bug us, hustle us or shove us
so we decided to make it our home
If the man wants to shove us out, we gonna jump and shout:
"the Statue of Liberty said 'COME'!"

Que pasa New York?...Que pasa New York?

NYC down in the Village
What a bad-*** city!
Que pasa New York?...Que pasa New York?

Bad-*** city!....Bad-*** city!....que pasa NY?...

* ref. to "David Peel & the Lower East Side" (a NYC 'diggers' street band of the period, better known for their song "Up Again the Wall, Motherf**ker")
