The lyrics of four of my favourite songs by John Lennon contain quite a lot of "nothing":

All You Need Is Love : "nothing" x 7
"There's nothing you can do that can't be done / Nothing you can sing that can't be sung", etc.

Strawberry Fields Forever : "nothing" x 8
"Nothing is real / And nothing to get hung about" repeated

Across The Universe : "nothing" x 12
"Nothing's gonna change my world" repeated

Nobody Told Me: "nothing" x 3
"Everyone's a winner and nothing left to lose", etc.

John's lyrics also quite often include the words "no one", "nobody" and "nowhere" - for example, in those songs, Nowhere Man and Happiness Is A Warm Gun ("I know nobody can do me no harm").

 Ahhh Girl said (several pages back)

What other army, war, or military-related lyrics can we come up with?  

 

  

I know this is old but "Listen To What The Man Said" has the line "Soldier boy kisses girl, leaves behind a tragic world."

Don't Let Me Down

And from the first time that she really done me
Oh, she done me, she done me good
I guess nobody ever really done me
Oh, she done me, she done me good

From Mind Games :

“I want you to make love not war, I know you’ve heard it before.”

John referencing every other love themed song he’d done before that point. 

I’ve mentioned it before, but Here We Go Again’s “and nobody wants to hold your hand” always gives me goosebumps. For solo career John to reference his Beatles Days is rare, so it has a lot of significance to me. Plus, he’s putting I Want To Hold Your Hand in reverse. Nobody wants to hold your hand this time, fitting the cynical vibe of the song.

Fuh You and We Can Work It Out

"Come on baby now
Help me work it out...
I could stay up half the night 
Playing with your head
I could stay up half the night 
But I’d rather go to bed"

"We Can Work It Out and get it straight or say good night."

Also...

"I won’t let you down
So you don’t need to shout"

"Life is very short, and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend"

Do You Want To Know A Secret

I've known the secret for a week or two

Don't Pass Me By

You said that you would be late
About an hour or two

I Don't Want To Spoil The Party

I've had a drink or two and I don't care

I Need You

Said you had a thing or two to tell me

Lovely Rita

Sitting on the sofa with a sister or two

Paperback Writer

It's a thousand pages, give or take a few
I'll be writing more in a week or two

Retrospective of course, but When I Get Home being a commentary of December 8.

Come on, let me through
I got so many things I gotta do
I got no business being here with you
This way

And the girl waiting at home for John instead being Sean.
