“One day they will be worth something.”

From NYTimes.com: “Give Peace A Chance” Lyrics Up For Sale

The lyrics are being sold by comedy writer and presenter Gail Renard, who was 16 when Lennon and Yoko Ono staged their famous “Bed-In” at a hotel in Montreal in 1969.

Renard and a friend sneaked into the Queen Elizabeth Hotel where the recently married Lennon and Ono were holding a protest for peace and became friendly with the couple.

According to Christie’s, Lennon gave Renard some mementos, including the lyrics, telling her: “One day they will be worth something.”

I think I’d have a hard time selling something like this if I got it the same way she did.
