John Lennon Unit Study, Anyone? Watching the Wheels ...

So who would buy a $2 unit study on John Lennon if I put it together? I have always dug this guy, probably because I was spoon-fed a steady diet of Beatles as a kid. My dad is a Beatles FREAK with a capital F. When John Lennon died in 1980 it devastated our household. I still get sad thinking about it, along the lines of MLK, Jr. or JFK or Bobby Kennedy being killed. Why are the greats gunned down? What would our country have been like had they all lived? Here are the lyrics to a favorite of mine, which always makes me think of homeschooling ...

Watching The Wheels
John Lennon

People say I'm Crazy doing what I'm doing
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
When I say that I'm o.k. they look at me kind of strange
Surely you're not happy now you no longer play the game

People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball?

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go

People asking questions lost in confusion
Well I tell them there's no problem, only solutions
Well they shake their heads and look at me as if I've lost my mind
I tell them there's no hurry...
I'm just sitting here doing time

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go
