Let me carry the thought of Ms. Ono's lyrics a little further:
The sky was so blue
and we had no clue
so we went to the zoo
and waited in a queue
to see a bear named Pooh
and then had a stew
topped off by a brew
which was served by a crew
who was led by Sir Hugh
but who could have knew
I'd get the review
'she gives you
Interestingly enough, Sean Lennon did a cover of it with the Peace Choir, one of those big huge celebrity supergroups (Flea! Dwayne Wayne! Cyndia Lauper! Q-Tip! Half of 'Was Not Was'!), which provoked the formation of another celebrity supergroup to record "Voices that Care" (Michael Bolton! Alan Thicke! Warrant! and the musical stylings of James Woods!).
UPDATE: Just for clarification, the first two lines are Yoko's. The remainder, after the "Hmmm." were me making fun of the insipid "blue"/"clue" rhyme. The new lyrics are spoken-word poems set to a techno-fied "Give Peace a Chance" melody. Yeah, you read that right. Yoko made "Give Peace a Chance" TECHNO.
UPDATE 2: When I was typing the word 'update' above, I hit the keys just to the left of U and P, then typed D and A, and then wondered why the word 'YODA' had suddenly appeared on my screen.
