Revolution - The Beatles (LYRICS/LETRA) [Original]

"Revolution" is a song by the Beatles, written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. Three versions of the song were recorded in 1968: a slow, bluesy arrangement for the Beatles' self-titled double album, commonly known as "the White Album"; a more abstract musical collage that originated as the latter part of "Revolution 1" and appears on the same album; and a faster, hard rock version similar to "Revolution 1", released as the B-side of the "Hey Jude" single. Although the single version was issued first, it was recorded several weeks after "Revolution 1", as a re-make specifically intended for release as a single.
