Tomorrow - Revolution (1967)

First known as Four Plus One and then as The In Crowd before settling on their final name, this group received critical acclaim but never caught much popularity. Along with Pink Floyd, they were one of the first psychedelic bands to come out of England. Their best known song, “My White Bicycle,” has been claimed by the group’s guitarist, Steve Howe, to be England’s first psychedelic song (which I’m sure is up to debate).

This song, released on the group’s 1967 album, Tomorrow, was released a full year before The Beatleshit of the same name. It was likely to also be the inspiration John Lennon used to write The Beatles hit, as his lyrics “you say you want a revolution” supposedly responded to this song’s “have your own little revolution…now!”

Lyrics:

It's not animal, vegetable, or mineral
In Spain, they'd sometimes find them
“Ah,” you might say, “he's beginning”
It changes quickly
But it's a good thing
We have to repeat, “Revolution, revolution…”

Revolution (Now!)
Revolution (Now!)
Revolution (Now!)
Revolution (Now!)

A time will come when we'll be free
When we can talk and meet and see
(Anything)
That's going on
(Everything)
Right or wrong
Free

Flower children spreading love
That's a start
You can tell those with a heart
(Sunrise)
It's so nice
(Open eyes)
See it twice
Free

(Careful walk about, police on your own)
(Careful what you say, police on the phone)

Have your own little revolution
Have your own little revolution
Have your own little revolution now
Revolution (Now!)
Revolution (Now!)
Revolution (Now!)
Revolution (Now!)

Happiness is hard to find
We just want peace to blow our minds
(Don't you see)
All the thing?
(Bringing)
Anything you want to bring

(Careful walk about, police on your own)
(Careful what you say, police on the phone)

Have your own little revolution
Have your own little revolution
Have your own little revolution now
Revolution (Now!)
Revolution (Now!)
Revolution (Now!)
Revolution (Now!)
Revolution (Now!)
Revolution (Now!)
