[Verse 1]
You were a friend I never met before
Though you never even knew my name
But we knew your life, your loves, your hopes
All just the same

[Verse 2]
It was some time ago one winter
In some half-forgotten dream
Yours was a face that we remember
By the songs you sang

[Chorus]
So long to my old friend, the Walrus
Your star will keep shining on
In the hearts and the minds of us all

[Verse 3]
You took us to a land of strawberry fields
And we never were quite the same
While Lucy's diamonds shined so bright
Down onto Penny Lane

[Verse 4]
You told us all we really need is love,
All we really need is love
To imagine everyone in peace tonight
All around the world

[Chorus]
So long to my old friend, the Walrus
Your star will keep shining on
In the hearts and the minds of us all

Sid Bradley – Elegy For The Walrus (John Lennon Tribute) Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You were a friend I never met before
Though you never even knew my name
But we knew your life, your loves, your hopes
All just the same

[Verse 2]
It was some time ago one winter
In some half-forgotten dream
Yours was a face that we remember
By the songs you sang

[Chorus]
So long to my old friend, the Walrus
Your star will keep shining on
In the hearts and the minds of us all

[Verse 3]
You took us to a land of strawberry fields
And we never were quite the same
While Lucy's diamonds shined so bright
Down onto Penny Lane

[Verse 4]
You told us all we really need is love,
All we really need is love
To imagine everyone in peace tonight
All around the world

[Chorus]
So long to my old friend, the Walrus
Your star will keep shining on
In the hearts and the minds of us all
