Give me a dollar or give me 50 cents Let me take it back if that ain't what I meant Give me a coat or give me a bite Give me a light bulb and make sure it's bright Give me the moon or give me everywhere Give me some powder to spray up in the air
[Chorus] Let me take my thoughts away to think about another day Remembering the times I pray to help me deal with me To be the dogman
Give me some attention lend me your ear Give me what to do and get me out of here Give me a book give me something to read Give me a horse race and give me who's the lead
All the sleeping never waking all the leaves in need of raking All the business undertaking all my bones and muscles aching Thoughts and mind are surely flaking over luncheons hands are shaking Surety of no mistaking cars and horns and glass is breaking
Give me a color make it black or white Give me a newspaper tell me if it's right Give me a nail or give me a bat Give me a skinny or give me a fat

John Lennon's lead guitar work on Yoko Ono's "Walking On Thin Ice" proved to be his final creative act. It was upon their return home after completing laying down the track that Lennon was murdered by Mark David Chapman.
