"Give "Pete" A Chance"

I think everybody in life deserves "a chance" to make the most of their God given talents. I repeat, everyone deserves a chance. No matter who you are and what your name is, you should have a chance to follow your dreams and destiny.


John Lennon wrote the famous song  "Give Pete A Chance" so he believes for Pete's sake that Pete deserves a chance. Here are the lyrics to that song:


Two, one two three four
Everybody's talking about
Bagism, Shagism, Dragism, Madism
Ragism, Tagism, this-ism, that-ism
Ism ism ism
All we are saying is give Pete  a chance
All we are saying is give Pete a chance
Everybody's talkin' 'bout ministers, sinisters
Banisters and canisters, bishops and fishops
Rabbis and pop eyes, bye bye, bye byes
All we are saying, is give Pete a chance
All we are saying, is give Pete a chance
Let me tell you now
Everybody's talking about, revolution
Evolution, masturbation, flagellation
Regulation, integrations, meditations
United Nations, congratulations
All we are saying is give Pete a chance
All we are saying is give Pete a chance
Everybody's talking about, John and Yoko
Timmy Leary, Rosemary, Tommy smothers
Bobby Dylan, Tommy Cooper, Derek Taylor
Norman Mailer, Alan Ginsberg, Hare Krishna, Hare Hare Krishna
All we are saying is give Pete a chance
All we are saying is give Pete a chance
All we are saying is give Pete a chance
...

 Now, I'm not 100% sure which Pete John Lennon was referring to; but, my guess is he may have been referring to the original drummer in the Silver Beatles, namely Pete Best who was replaced by Ringo Starr right before the "Beatles" rocketed to world wide fame and fortune. I think maybe John Lennon and the rest of the "Beatles" may have felt a touch of remorse for parting company with their Best drummer before he could become a Starr like the rest of the group. So, John probably wrote this song as a plea to other music groups to consider Peter Best as their drummer and give him a chance. I don't know. What do you think?  "Peace out".
