I dug this up---John's obviously in a cryptic and/or uncooperative mood, still sort of deadpan funny. There might be a later interview somewhere more revealing....
French Television News
"THE NEW LOOK LENNON'S DISCUSS THEIR LATEST HAIRCUTS."
On their return home from Denmark, the Lennon's had to make a detour to France. Whilst there they were interviewed by a news team in a Paris Hotel.....
Newsman: "Mr Lennon, why did you decide to cut your hair?"
John: "Because I felt like it, you know."
Newsman: "So there was no special reason?"
John: "No, I mean why do you cut yours?"
Newsman: "I suppose as a leader of a sort...of a peace movement..do you have any special plans on the future?"
John: "I'm not a leader, and I try not to make plans, you know, we have no new plans."
Yoko: "We just like to come across with the message of peace and love."
John: "Peace, peace"
Newsman: "You're going back to London now I suppose?"
John: "Yes. We only came because the fog wouldn't let us in London. We were on our way to London. We just got held up. But we enjoyed it."
Newsman: "When are you going to London?"
Newsman: "And what will you do when you get there?"
John: "Go home."
Newsman: "I understand the Beatles have just recorded a new record..."
John: "A new Single...Let it be, folks."
Newsman: "What it the record about?"
John: "About Letting it be."
Newsman: "Can you explain that?"
John: "You'll hear it."
Newsman: "You must listen to it?"
John: "Listen, Listen.....Je me leve a sept heures."
