I Found Out

Album: John Lennon: Plastic Ono Band (1970)
  • I told you before stay away from my door
    Don't give me that brother, brother, brother, brother
    The freaks on the phone won't leave me alone
    So don't give me that brother, brother, brother, bROTHER
    I, I found out
    I, I found out

    Now that I showed you what I been through
    Don't take nobody's word what you can do
    There ain't no Jesus gonna come from the sky
    Now that I found out I know I can cry
    I, I found out
    I, I found out

    Some of you sitting there with your cock in your hand
    Don't get you nowhere, don't make you a man
    I heard something bout my ma and my pa
    They didn't want me so they made me a star
    I, I found out
    I, I found out

    Old hare Krishna got nothing on you
    Just keep you crazy with nothing to do
    Keep you occupied with pie in the sky
    There ain't no Guru who can see through your eyes
    I, I found out
    I, I found out

    I been through junkies, I been through it all
    I've seen religion from Jesus to Paul
    Don't let them fool you with dope and cocaine
    No one can't do you no harm you to feel your own pain
    I, I found out
    I, I found this out
    I, I found out Writer/s: JOHN WINSTON LENNON

  • Jema from South Portland, MeI really love this song,it's one of my top faves from John.
  • Breanna from Henderson, NvOne of John's best. This song expresses so much in such a short amount of time
  • Howard from Wakefield, United KingdomA very powerful song, but a bit slight of melody as were most songs on this album.
  • Derek from Shrewsbury, Mavery powerful song every lyric has something to do with what went on in his life and the anger he felt at the time
