Come Together

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

Here come old flattop, he come grooving up slowly,
He got joo-joo eyeball, he one holy roller,
He got hair down to his knee,
Got to be a joker he just do what he please.

He wear no shoeshine, he got toe-jam football,
He got monkey finger, he shoot Coca-Cola,
He say, "I know you, you know me,"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free.
Come together, right now, over me.

He bag production, he got walrus gumboot,
He got Ono sideboard, he one spinal cracker,
He got feet down below his knee,
Hold you in his armchair, you can feel his disease.
Come together, right now, over me.

He roller-coaster, he got early warning,
He got muddy water, he one mojo filter,
He say, "One and one and one is three,"
Got to be good-looking, 'cause he's so hard to see.
Come together, right now, over me.


Something

(Harrison)

Lead vocal: George Harrison

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover,
Something in the way she woos me.

I don't want to leave her now,
You know I believe her now.

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don't need no other lover,
Something in her style that shows me.

Don't want to leave her now,
You know I believe her now.

You're asking me will my love grow,
I don't know, I don't know.
You stick around now it may show,
I don't know, I don't know.

Something in the way she knows,
And all I have to do is think of her,
Something in the things she shows me.

Don't want to leave her now,
You know I believe her now.


Maxwell's Silver Hammer

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

Joan was quizzical, studied metaphysical
Science in the home,
Late nights all alone with a test-tube,
Ohh-oh-oh-oh...

Maxwell Edison, majoring in medicine,
Calls her on the phone,
"Can I take you out to the pictures,
Joa-oa-oa-oan?"
But as she's getting ready to go,
A knock comes on the door...

Bang, bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Came down upon her head,
Bang, bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Made sure that she was dead.

Back in school again, Maxwell plays the fool again,
Teacher gets annoyed,
Wishing to avoid an unpleasant sce-e-e-ene.
She tells Max to stay when the class has gone away,
So he waits behind,
Writing 50 times, "I must not be so-o-o-oo..."
But when she turns her back on the boy,
He creeps up from behind,

Bang, bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Came down upon her head,
Bang, bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Made sure that she was dead.

B.C. Thirty-One said, "we caught a dirty one,"
Maxwell stands alone,
Painting testimonial pictures, ohh-oh-oh-oh...
Rose and Valerie, screaming from the gallery,
Say he must go free (Maxwell must go free),
The judge does not agree and he tells them so-o-o-oh...
But as the words are leaving his lips,
A noise comes from behind,

Bang, bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Came down upon his head,
Bang, Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Made sure that he was dead.


Oh! Darling

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

Oh! Darling, please believe me,
I'll never do you no harm.
Believe me when I tell you,
I'll never do you no harm.

Oh! Darling, if you leave me,
I'll never make it alone.
Believe me when I beg you,
Don't ever leave me alone.

When you told me you didn't need me anymore,
Well, you know I nearly broke down and cried.
When you told me you didn't need me anymore,
Well, you know I nearly broke down and died.

Oh! Darling, if you leave me,
I'll never make it alone.
Believe me when I tell you,
I'll never do you no harm.

When you told me you didn't need me anymore,
Well, you know I nearly broke down and cried.
When you told me you didn't need me anymore,
Well, you know I nearly broke down and died.

Oh! Darling, please believe me,
I'll never let you down.
Believe me when I tell you,
I'll never do you no harm.


Octopus's Garden

(Starkey)

Lead Vocal: Ringo Starr

I'd like to be under the sea,
In an octopus's garden in the shade.
He'd let us in, knows where we've been,
In his octopus's garden in the shade.

I'd ask my friends to come and see
An octopus's garden with me.
I'd like to be under the sea,
In an octopus's garden in the shade.

We would be warm below the storm,
In our little hideaway beneath the waves.
Resting our head on the sea bed,
In an octopus' garden near a cave.

We would sing and dance around
because we know we can't be found
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade

We would shout and swim about
The coral that lies beneath the waves
(Lies beneath the ocean waves).
Oh what joy for every girl and boy,
Knowing they're happy and they're safe
(Happy and they're safe).

We would be so happy, you and me,
No one there to tell us what to do.
I'd like to be under the sea,
In an octopus's garden with you.


I Want You (She's So Heavy)

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

I want you, I want you so bad.
I want you, I want you so bad,
It's driving me mad,
It's driving me mad.

I want you, I want you so bad, babe.
I want you, I want you so bad,
It's driving me mad,
It's driving me mad.

I want you, I want you so bad, babe.
I want you, I want you so bad,
It's driving me mad,
It's driving me mad.

I want you, I want you so bad.
I want you, I want you so bad,
It's driving me mad,
It's driving me mad.

She's so... heavy, heavy, heavy...

She's so... heavy,

I want you, I want you so bad.
I want you, I want you so bad,
It's driving me mad,
It's driving me mad.

I want you, you know I want you so bad, babe.
I want you, you know I want you so bad, babe,
It's driving me mad,
It's driving me mad, yeahhhh!

She's so...


Here Comes The Sun

(Harrison)

Lead Vocal: George Harrison

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
And I say it's all right.

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter,
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here.
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
And I say it's all right.

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces,
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here.
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun.
And I say it's all right.

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes,
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes,
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes,
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes,
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting,
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear.
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
And I say it's all right,
It's all right.


Because

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

Because the world is round it turns me on
Because the world is round... aaaaaahhhhhh

Because the wind is high it blows my mind
Because the wind is high... aaaaaaaahhhh

Love is all, love is new
Love is all, love is you

Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue... aaaaaaaahhhh

Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh....


You Never Give Me Your Money

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

You never give me your money
You only give me your funny paper
and in the middle of negotiations
you break down

I never give you my number
I only give you my situation
and in the middle of investigation
I break down

Out of college, money spent
See no future, pay no rent
All the money's gone, nowhere to go
Any jobber got the sack
Monday morning, turning back
Yellow lorry slow, nowhere to go
But oh, that magic feeling, nowhere to go
Oh, that magic feeling
Nowhere to go

One sweet dream
Pick up the bags and get in the limousine
Soon we'll be away from here
Step on the gas and wipe that tear away
One sweet dream came true today
Came true today
Came true today (yes it did)

One two three four five six seven,
All good children go to Heaven


Here Comes The Sun King

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: John Lennon

Here comes the sun king
Here comes the sun king
Everybody's laughing
Everybody's happy
Here comes the sun king

Quando paramucho mi amore de felice carathon
Mundo paparazzi mi amore cicce verdi parasol
Questo abrigado tantamucho que canite carousel


Mean Mr. Mustard

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

Mean Mister Mustard sleeps in the park
Shaves in the dark trying to save paper
Sleeps in a hole in the road
Saving up to buy some clothes
Keeps a ten-bob note up his nose
Such a mean old man
Such a mean old man

His sister Pam works in a shop
She never stops, she's a go-getter
Takes him out to look at the queen
Only place that he's ever been
Always shouts out something obscene
Such a dirty old man
Dirty old man


Polythene Pam

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: John Lennon

Well you should see Polythene Pam
She's so good-looking but she looks like a man
Well you should see her in drag dressed in her polythene bag
Yes you should see Polythene Pam.
Yeah yeah yeah

Get a dose of her in jackboots and kilt
She's killer-diller when she's dressed to the hilt
She's the kind of a girl that makes the "News of the World"
Yes you could say she was attractively built.
Yeah yeah yeah.


She Came In Through The Bathroom Window

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

She came in through the bathroom window
Protected by a silver spoon
But now she sucks her thumb and wanders
By the banks of her own lagoon

Didn't anybody tell her?
Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the phone to Monday,
Tuesday's on the phone to me

She said she'd always been a dancer
She worked at 15 clubs a day
And though she thought I knew the answer
Well I knew what I could not say.

And so I quit the police department
And got myself a steady job
And though she tried her best to help me
She could steal but she could not rob

Didn't anybody tell her?
Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the phone to Monday,
Tuesday's on the phone to me
Oh yeah.


Golden Slumbers

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye

Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye


Carry That Weight

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

Boy, you gotta carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
Boy, you gotta carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time

I never give you my pillow
I only send you my invitation
And in the middle of the celebrations
I break down

Boy, you gotta carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
Boy, you gotta carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time


The End

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

Oh yeah, all right
Are you gonna be in my dreams
Tonight?

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make.


Her Majesty

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl,
but she doesn't have a lot to say
Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
but she changes from day to day

I want to tell her that I love her a lot
But I gotta get a bellyful of wine
Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
Someday I'm going to make her mine, oh yeah,
Someday I'm going to make her mine.
