Yoko Ono on John Lennon’s “Watching the Wheels.” OC:…wise yeah. :17
”Very wise song, and for him to come to terms with his life in that sense it was a beautiful, beautiful moment, I think. No one else did it that way. It’s almost like a zen monk, you know, zen priest, saying something very wise. And he was wise, yeah.”
