    Sgt. Pepper's Lonley Hearts Club Band is the Beatle's masterpiece. It is the most talked about and influential album in pop history. Each song has it's unique sound, a mix of drugs, images, classical and rock sounds. It represents everything in the 60s and spreads the message of universal love. This is without a doubt their strongest album. All the songs are individual classics and fit together well as a whole. The album begins with "Sgt. Pepper's Lonley Hearts Club" in which the Beatles introduce themselves as well..."Sgt. Pepper's Lonley Hearts Club Band". "With A Little Help From My Friends" is a classic. Ringo's vocal performance is excellent and the harmonies are wonderful. "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" is one of John's most brilliant works. The songs stimulates the senses and makes you use your imagination to pictures the tangerine trees and the marmalade skies. Awsome song. "Getting Better" is an inspriational song of Paul's that tells us that no matter how bad things are they can't get worse unless you let them get the best of you. "Fixing A Hole" is an awsome song about a guy who just wants to sit back and let his mind wander. I really like the lyrics to this one. "She's Leaving Home" is a sad song about a wife and mother who is leaving her family. The vocals in this song are outstanding Paul's verses and John's bridges are excellent. "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite" is a song of John's about a circus. The lyrics are good and the weird, swirling organ music makes you feel like you're really at a circus. "Within You And Without You" is a cool song of George's sending out the message that greed and sin are bad and only love can save the world. The lyrics are very strong and the sitar sound is awsome. "When I'm Sixty Four" is a chummy sing-along song by Paul. The lyrics are kind of funny but the tune is good. "Lovely Rita" is a weird song about a meter maid who catches the singer's eye. The weird sounds at the end are cool. "Good Morning Good Morning" is a song John wrote around a Cornflakes commercial. The lyrics are good and the overall sound of the song is pretty neat. "Sgt. Pepper's Lonley Hearts Club Band (Reprise)" is a reprise of the first track on the album and tells us that the show is almost over, but there will be one more song. "Day In The Life" is a wonderful, marvolous, superb, outstanding piece of work. It's half of a song of John's about a tradgic car crash, the English army winning the war, and the 10,000 holes in Blackburn, Lancashire. And half a song of Paul's about a man waking up and going to work, then somebody (a.k.a. John) speaks and he goes into a dream. The vocals are excellent, but what really makes this song one of the greatest is the orchestra. Someone even once said the the E-major note at the end of the song had something to do with God. Wonderful song. "Sgt. Pepper" is the highest point in the Beatles career and is a work of art. This is a MUST have for any true Beatles fan and a must have for any fan of pop, rock or classical music.


    "Sgt. Pepper's Lonley Hearts Club Band"

    It was twenty years ago today,
    Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play
    They've been going in and out of style
    But they're guaranteed to raise a smile.
    So may I introduce to you
    The act you've known for all these years,
    Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
    We're Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band,
    We hope you will enjoy the show,
    We're Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band,
    Sit back and let the evening go.
    Sgt. Peppers Lonely, Sgt. Peppers Lonely,

    It's wonderful to be here, it's certainly a thrill.
    You're such a lovely audience,
    We'd like to take you home with us,
    We'd love to take you home.
    I don't really want to stop the show,
    But I thought you might like to know,
    That the singer's going to sing a song,
    And he wants you all to sing along.
    So let me introduce to you
    The one and only Billy Shears
    And Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.

    "With A Little Help From My Friends"

    What would you think if I sang out of tune,
    Would you stand up and walk out on me.
    Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song,
    and I'll try not to sing out of key.
    Oh I get by with a little help from my friends,
    Oh I get high with a little help from my friends.
    Oh gonna try with a little help from my frineds.
    What do I do when my love is away.
    (Does it worry you to be alone)
    How do I feel by the end of the day
    (Are you sad because you're on your own)
    No I get by with a little help from my friends,
    Oh I get high with a little help from my friends.
    Oh gonna try with a little help from my frineds.
    Do you need anybody,
    I need somebody to love.
    Could it be anybody
    I want somebody to love.
    Would you believe in a love at first sight,
    yes I'm certain that it happens all the time.
    What do you see when you turn out the light,
    I can't tell you, but I know it's mine.
    Oh I get by with a little help from my friends,
    Oh I get high with a little help from my friends.
    Oh gonna try with a little help from my frineds.
    Do you need anybody,
    I just need someone to love.
    Could it be anybody,
    I want somebody to love.
    Oh I get by with a little help from my friends,
    Oh I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends,
    Oh I get high with a little help from my friends,
    Yes I get by with a little help from my friends,
    With a little help from my friends.

    "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds"

    Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
    With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
    Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
    A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.
    Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
    Towering over your head.
    Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
    And she's gone.
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds,AAhhhh.
    Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
    Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies,
    Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers,
    That grow so incredibly high.
    Newpaper taxis appear on the shore,
    Waiting to take you away.
    Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
    And you're gone.
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds,AAhhhh.
    Picture yourself on a trian in a station,
    with plasticine porters with looking glass ties,
    Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile,
    The girl with kaleidoscope eyes.
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds,AAhhhh.
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds,AAhhhh.
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds

    It's getting better all the time
    I used to get mad at my school
    The teachers that taught me weren't cool
    You're holding me down, turning me round
    Filling me up with your rules.
    I've got to admit it's getting better(better)
    A little better all the time(it couldn't get any worse)
    I have to admit it's getting better(better)
    It's getting better since you've been mine.
    Me used to be angry young man
    Me hiding me head in the sand
    You gave me the word
    I finally heard
    I'm doing the best that I can.
    I've got to admit it's getting better(better)
    A little better all the time(it couldn't get any worse)
    I have to admit it's getting better(better)
    It's gettin better since you've been mine.
    Getting so much better all the time
    It's getting better all the time
    (better, better, better)
    It's getting better all the time
    (better, better, better)
    I used to be cruel to my woman
    I beat her and kept her apart from the things
    that she loved
    Man I was mean but I'm changing my scene
    And I'm doing the best that I can.
    I admit it's getting better(better)
    A little better all the time(it couldn't get any worse)
    Yes I admit it's getting better(better)
    It's getting better since you've been mine.
    Getting so much better all the time
    It's getting better all the time
    (better, better, better)
    It's getting better all the time
    (better, better, better)
    Getting so much better all the time

    "Fixing A Hole"

    I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
    And stops my mind from wandering
    Where it will go
    I'm filling the cracks that ran through the door
    And kept my mind from wandering
    Where it will go
    And it really doesn't matter if I'm wrong
    I'm right
    Where I belong I'm right
    Where I belong.
    See the people standing there who disagree and never win
    And wonder why they don't get in my door.
    I'm painting my room in a colorful way
    and when my mind is wandering
    There I will go.
    And it really doesn't matter if
    I'm wrong I'm right
    Where I belong I'm right
    Where I belong.
    Silly people run around they worry me
    And never ask me why they don't get past my door.
    I'm taking the time for a number of things
    That weren't important yesterday
    And I still go.
    I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
    And stops my mind from wandering
    Where it will go.
    Where it will go.
    I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
    And stops my mind from wandering
    Where it will go.

    "She's Leaving Home"

    Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins
    Silently closing her bedroom door
    Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
    She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching her hankerchief
    Quietly turning the backdoor key
    Stepping ourside she is free.
    She (We gave her most of our lives)
    is Leaving (Sacrificed most of our lives)
    home (We gave her everything money could buy)
    She's leaving home after living alone
    For so many years.(Bye, bye)
    Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown
    Picks up the letter that's lying there
    Standing alone at the top of the stairs
    She breaks down and cries to her husband
    Daddy our baby's gone.
    Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly
    How could she do this to me.
    She (We never thought of ourselves)
    is leaving (Never a thought for ourselves)
    home (We struggled hard all our lives to get by)
    She's leaving home after living alone
    For so many years.(Bye, bye)
    Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away
    Waiting to keep the appointment she made
    Meeting a man from the motor trade.
    She (What did we do that was wrong)
    is having (We didn't know it was wrong)
    fun (Fun is the one thing that money can't buy)
    Something inside that was always denied
    For so many years.(Bye, bye)
    She's leaving home.(Bye, bye)

    "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite"

    For the benefit of Mr. Kite
    There will be a show tonight on trampoline
    The Hendersons will all be there
    Late of Pablo Fanques Fair--what a scene
    Over men and horses hoops and garters
    Lastly through a hogshead of real fire!
    In this way Mr. K. will challenge the world!
    The celebrated Mr. K.
    Performs his feat on Saturday at Bishopsgate
    The Hendersons will dance and sing
    As Mr. Kite flys through the ring don't be late
    Mr. K. and H. assure the public
    Their production will be second to none
    And of course Henry The Horse dances the waltz!
    The band begins at ten to six
    When Mr. K. performs his tricks without a sound
    And Mr. H. will demonstrate
    Tensummersets he'll undertake on solid ground
    Having been some days in preparation
    A splendid time is guaranteed for all
    And tonight Mr. Kite is topping the bill.

    "Within You And Without You"

    We were talking--about the space between us all
    And the people--who hide themselves behind a
    wall of illusion
    Never glimpse the truth--then it's far too late--
    when they pass away.
    We were talking--about the love we all could
    share--when we find it
    To try our best to hold it there--with our love
    With our love--we could save the world--if
    they only knew.
    Try to realise it's all within yourself no-one else
    can make you change
    And to see you're really only very small,
    and life flows on within you and without you.
    We were talking--about the love that's gone so
    cold and the people,
    Who gain the world and lose their soul--
    they don't know--they can't see--are you one of them?
    When you've seen beyond yourself--then you
    may find, peace of mind, is waitng there--
    And the time will come when you see
    we're all one, and life flows on within you and without you.

    "When I'm Sixty Four"

    When I get older losing my hair,
    Many years from now.
    Will you still be sending me a Valentine
    Birthday greetings bottle of wine.
    If I'd been out til quarter to three
    Would you lock the door,
    Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
    When I'm sixty-four.
    You'll be older too,
    And if you say the word,
    I could stay with you.
    I could be handy, mending a fuse
    When your lights have gone.
    You can knit a sweater by the fireside
    Sunday mornings go for a ride,
    Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
    Who could ask for more.
    Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
    When I'm sixty-four.
    Every summer we can rent a cottage,
    In the Isle of Wight, if it's not too dear
    We shall scrimp and save
    Grandchildren on your knee
    Vera Chuck & Dave.
    Send me a postcard, drop me a line,
    Stating point of view
    Indicate precisely what you mean to say
    Yours sincerely, wasting away
    Give me your answer, fill in a form
    Mine for evermore
    Will you still need me, will you still feed me.
    When I'm sixty-four.

    "Lovely Rita"

    Lovely Rita meter maid
    Lovely Rita meter maid
    Lovely Rita meter maid
    Nothing can come btween us,
    When it gets dark I tow your heart away.
    Standing by a parking meter,
    When I caught a glimpse of Rita,
    Filling in a ticket in her little white book.
    In a cap she looked much older,
    And the bag across her shoulder
    Made her look a little like a military man.
    Lovely Rita meter maid,
    May I inquire discreetly,
    When are you free,
    To take some tea with me.
    Took her out and tried to win her,
    Had a laugh and over dinner,
    Told her I would really like to see her again,
    Got the bill and Rita paid it,
    Took her home I nearly made it,
    Sitting on the sofa with a sister of two.
    Oh, lovely Rita meter maid,
    where would I be without you,
    Give us a wink and make me think of you.
    Lovely Rita meter maid
    Lovely Rita meter maid
    Lovely Rita meter maid
    Lovely Rita meter maid

    "Good Morning Good Morning"

    Good Morning, Good Morning
    Good Morning, Good Morning
    Good Morning.
    Nothing to do to save his life call his wife in
    Nothing to say but what a day how's your boy been
    Nothing to do it's up to you
    I've got nothing to say but it's O.K.
    Good morning, Good morning
    Good Morning.
    Going to work don't want to go feeling low down
    Heading for home you start to roam then you're in town
    Everybody knows there's nothing doing
    Everything is closed it's like a ruin
    Everyone you see is half asleep.
    And you're on your own you're in th street.
    After a while you start to smile now you feel cool.
    Then you decide to take a walk by the old school.
    Nothing has changed it's still the same
    I've got nothing to say but it's O.K.
    Good morning, Good morning
    Good Morning.
    People running round it's five o'clock.
    Everywhere in town is gettin gdark.
    Everyone you see is full of life.
    It's time for tea and meet the wife.
    Somebody needs to know the time, glad that I'm here.
    Watching the skirts you start to flirt now you're in gear.
    Go to a show you hope she goes.
    I've got nothing to say but it's O.K.
    Good Morning, Good Morning, Good
    Good Morning, Good Morning, Good
    Good Morning, Good Morning, Good
    Good Morning, Good Morning, Good
    Good Morning, Good Morning, Good
    Good Morning, Good Morning, Good

    "A Day In The Life"

    I read the news today oh boy
    About a lucky man who made the grade
    And though the news was rather sad
    Well I just had to laugh
    I saw the photograph.
    He blew his mind out in a car
    He didn't notice that the lights had changed
    A crowd of people stood and stared
    They'd seen his face before
    Nobody was really sure
    If he was from the House of Lords.
    I saw a film today oh boy
    The English Army had just won the war
    A crowd of people turned away
    But I just had to look
    Having read the book.
    I'd love to turn you on.
    Woke up, fell out of bed,
    Dragged a comb across my head
    Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
    And looking up I noticed I was late.
    Found my coat and grabbed my hat
    Made the bus in seconds flat
    Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
    Somebody spoke and I went into a dream.
    I read the news today oh boy
    Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
    And though the holes were rather small
    They had to count them all
    Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall.
    I'd love to turn you on.
