Julia ()
Authors: John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Kahlil Gibran; Lead vocal: John Lennon

Half of what I say is meaningless
But I say it just to reach you, Julia.

Julia, Julia, oceanchild, calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia.
Julia, seashell eyes, windy smile, calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia.

Her hair of floating sky is shimmering, glimmering,
In the sun.

Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia.

When I cannot sing my heart
I can only speak my mind, Julia.

Julia, sleeping sand, silent cloud, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia.
Hum hum hum hum... calls me
So I sing a song of love for Julia, Julia, Julia.
