The Ballad of John and Yoko is a song by The Beatles, credited to Lennon/McCartney.

It was released as a single.

Paul and John were the only Beatles to record it, as George was on holiday and Ringo was filming the Magic Christian. In his biography, McCartney states that Lennon had a sudden inspiration for the song and had suggested that the two of them should record it immediately, without waiting for the other Beatles to return. Reflecting this somewhat unusual situation, the session recordings include the following exchange:
Lennon (on guitar): "Go a bit faster, Ringo!"
McCartney (on drums): "OK, George!" It was banned in some countries due to John's offensive remark about Christ and stating, They're gonna crucify me.
