Beautiful Boy by John Lennon

Close your eyes,
Have no fear,
The monster's gone,
He's on the run
And your daddy's here,

 Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful boy,
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful boy,

 Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day
In every way,
It's getting better and better,

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful boy,
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful boy,

 Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we'll both
Just have to be patient,

'Cause it's a long way to go,
A hard row to hoe
Yes, it's a long way to go
But in the meantime,

Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is what happens to you,
While you're busy making other plans,

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful boy,
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful boy,

 Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day
In every way,
It's getting better and better,

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful boy,
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful boy,

 Darling, darling,
Darling Sean.

I LOVE THIS SONG. IVE EVEN SUNG IT TO MY OWN SON. BUT IT ALSO MAKES ME SAD ON TWO LEVELS. FIRST JOHN DIDNT GET TO SEE HIS SON GROW UP. TWO, WHAT ABOUT JULIAN? DID JOHN ERASE HIS FIRST FAMILY?

Wow. This is a song of beauty. Sad he never got to see his son sail away in his boat. Man. This dude was in a good spot. He was tapped into pure inspiration. Sad some lame asshole shot him. Now I am enraged

Yeah, this is a great song

I remember listening this on the record player as a kid

Classic John Lennon

This man was a genius and one of a kind

I want to go to that alternate universe where the Beatles never broke up & Lennon was still alive

Imagine the music they would've created in the 70's and 80's

Ack!

Great song, though
