Sean Ono Lennon: ‘Isolation’ (4K) #LENNON80

Sean Ono Lennon: ‘Hey guys, here’s my version of ‘ISOLATION’, with me on drums and my nephew Jack on bass. Crazy how much the lyrics fit our current year. Please upload a cover of your favorite John Lennon song on YouTube, Instagram or TikTok — and tag my dad @johnlennon and #LENNON80 — to help celebrate his 80th anniversary. We need his music and his message now more than ever!’

People say we got it made
Don’t they know we’re so afraid?

We’re afraid to be alone
Everybody got to have a home

Just a boy and a little girl
Trying to change the whole wide world

The world is just a little town
Everybody trying to put us down

I don’t expect you to understand
After you’ve caused so much pain
But then again you’re not to blame
You’re just a human
A victim of the insane

We’re afraid of everyone
Afraid of the sun

The sun will never disappear
But the world may not have many years
