John Lennon on "Give Peace a Chance"

"The real word I used on the record was 'masturbation,' but I'd just got in trouble for 'The Ballad of John and Yoko' and I didn't want any more fuss, so I put 'mastication' in the written lyrics. It was a cop-out, but the message about peace was more important to me than having a little laugh about a word."
