"Only People" is a song written by John Lennon released on his 1973 album Mind Games.[1] The song is included on the 2010 album, Gimme Some Truth. "Only People" revolves around Lennon's and Ono's personal philosophy.[2] Lennon said that it failed as a song, saying that in an interview with Playboy Magazine that "It was a good lick, but I couldn't get the words to make sense."[2]
