You-Tube link – hear verses one and two of  ‘Lennon’s Companion’  (AKA ‘English Wives’ AKA ‘The Afrofluent Peace-Lovers Olympic Procession’).

And watch a video I made to the soundtrack.

This is a basic version of the tune as a medium tempo  ballad, with electric keyboards, electric bass and drums.

Other treatments can and will be applied (I imagine).

By the way, there’s also an intro., made for audience participation.  
It goes:

Everybody say
yes (yes)           everybody say yeah yeah (yeah yeah) everybody say
yes (yes)           everybody say yeah yeah (yeah yeah) everybody say
yeah (yeah)      everybody say yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I   ca-an imagine
PEACE                  (yeah)
PEACE                  (yeah)

And an oft repeated interjection and the outro.  goes –
Brothers love your ladies and your bodies and your babies more – WAR IS OVER
Brothers love your brothers love your brothers love your brothers more – WAR IS OVER
