A Hard Day's Night

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocals: John Lennon & Paul McCartney

It's been a hard day's night
And I been workin' like a dog.
It's been a hard day's night,
I should be sleepin' like a log.

But when I get home to you
I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright.

You know I work all day
To get you money to buy you things,
And it's worth it just to hear you say
You're gonna give me everything.

So why on earth should I moan
'Coz when I get you alone
You know I feel okay.

When I'm home everything seems to be right,
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight, yeah!

It's been a hard day's night
And I been workin' like a dog.
It's been a hard day's night,
I should be sleepin' like a log.

But when I get home to you
I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright, aaaaah!

Guitar Solo

So why on earth should I moan
'Coz when I get you alone
You know I feel okay.

When I'm home everything seems to be right
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight, yeah!

Oh, it's been a hard day's night
And I been workin' like a dog.
It's been a hard day's night,
I should be sleepin' like a log.

But when I get home to you
I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright.

You know I feel alright,
You know I feel alright.


I Should Have Known Better

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: John Lennon

I should have known better with a girl like you
That I would love everything that you do
And I do, hey-hey-hey, and I do.

Woah-oh, I never realised what a kiss could be
This could only happen to me
Can't you see, can't you see?

That when I tell you that I love you, oh
You're gonna say you love me too
And when I ask you to be mine
You're gonna say you love me too.

So-oh, I shoulda realised a lot of things before
If this is love you gotta give me more
Give me more, hey-hey-hey, give me more.

Guitar Solo

Woah-oh, I never realised what a kiss could be
This could only happen to me
Can't you see, can't you see?

That when I tell you that I love you, oh
You're gonna say you love me too, oh
And when I ask you to be mine
You're gonna say you love me too.

You love me too
You love me too
You love me too.


If I Fell

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocals: John Lennon & Paul McCartney

If I fell in love with you
Would you promise to be true
And help me understand?
'Coz I've been in love before
And I found that love was more
Than just holding hands.

If I give my heart to you
I must be sure From the very start
That you would love me more than her.

If I trust in you, oh please
Don't run and hide.
If I love you too, oh please
Don't hurt my pride like her
'Coz I couldn't stand the pain
And I would be sad if our new love
Was in vain.

So I hope you see that I
Would love to love you
And that she will cry
When she learns we are two
'Coz I couldn't stand the pain
And I would be sad if our new love
Was in vain.

So I hope you see that I
Would love to love you
And that she will cry
When she learns we are two

If I fell in love with you.


I'm Happy Just To Dance With You

(Lennon-McCartney)

Before this dance is through
I think I'll love you too,
I'm so happy when you dance with me.

I don't wanna kiss or hold your hand
If it's funny try an' understand,
There is really nothin' else I'd rather do
'Coz I'm happy just to dance with you.

I don't need to hug or hold you tight
I just wanna dance with you all night,
In this world there's nothin' I would rather do
'Coz I'm happy just to dance with you.

Just to dance with you
Is everything I need (oooh).
Before this dance is through (aaah, oooh)
I think I'll love you too,
I'm so happy when you dance with me (oooh, oooh!)

If somebody tries to take my place
Let's pretend we just can't see his face,
In this world there's nothin' I would rather do
'Coz I'm happy just to dance with you.

Just to dance with you (oooh)
Is everything I need (oooh).
Before this dance is through (aaah, oooh)

I'm so happy when you dance with me (oooh, oooh!)

If somebody tries to take my place
Let's pretend we just can't see his face,
In this world there's nothin' I would rather do
I've discovered I'm in love with you (oooh),
'Coz I'm happy just to dance with you (oooh).

(Oooh)
(Oooh!)


And I Love Her

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: Paul McCartney

I give her all my love
That's all I do
And if you saw my love
You'd love her too,
I love her.

She gives me everything
And tenderly,
The kiss my lover brings
She brings to me,
And I love her.

A love like ours
Could never die
As long as I
Have you near me.

Bright are the stars that shine,
Dark is the sky.
I know this love of mine
Will never die,
And I love her.

And I love her.


Tell Me Why

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: John Lennon

Tell me why you cried
And why you lied to me?
Tell me why you cried
And why you lied to me?

Well, I gave you everything I had
But you left me sittin' on my own.
Did you have to treat me oh-so bad?
All I do is hang my head and moan.

Tell me why you cried
And why you lied to me?
Tell me why you cried
And why you lied to me?

If there's somethin' I have said or done,
Tell me what and I'll apologise.
If you don't I really can't go on,
Holdin' back these tears in my eyes.

Tell me why you cried
And why you lied to me?
Tell me why you cried
And why you lied to me?

Well, I'm beggin' on my bended knees
If you'll only listen to my pleas,
Is there anything I can do?
'Coz I really can't stand it,
I'm so in love with you.

Tell me why you cried
And why you lied to me?
Tell me why you cried
And why you lied to me?


Can't Buy Me Love

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: Paul McCartney

Can't buy me lo-ove, lo-ove
Can't buy me lo-ove.

I'll buy you a diamond ring, my friend
If it makes you feel alright.
I'll get you anything, my friend
If it makes you feel alright.
'Coz I don't care too much for money,
Money can't buy me love.

I'll give you all I've got to give,
If you say you love me too.
I may not have a lot to give
But what I got I'll give to you.
I don't care too much for money,
Money can't buy me love.

Can't buy me lo-ove, everybody tells me so,
Can't buy me lo-ove, no-no, no, no.

Say you don't need no diamond rings
And I'll be satisfied.
Tell me that you want the kind of things
That money just can't buy.
I don't care too much for money,
Money can't buy me love.

[Aaaaaaaaoh!]

Can't buy me lo-ove, everybody tells me so,

Can't buy me lo-o-ove.

I'll Cry Instead

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: John Lennon

I got every reason on earth to be mad
'Coz I just lost the only girl I had.
If I could get my way,
I'd get myself locked up today,
But I can't so I'll cry instead.

I got a chip on my shoulder that's bigger than my feet,
I can't talk to people that I meet.
If I could see you now,
I'd try to make you sad somehow,
But I can't so I'll cry instead.

Don't want to cry when there's people there,
I get shy when they start to stare,
I'm gonna hide myself away, hey,
But I'll come back again some day.

And when I do you'd better hide all the girls,
I'm gonna break their hearts all 'round the world.
Yes, I'm gonna break 'em in two
And show you what your lovin' man can do,
Until then I'll cry instead.

Don't want to cry when there's people there,
I get shy when they start to stare,
I'm gonna hide myself away, hey,
But I'll come back again some day.

And when I do you better hide all the girls
'Coz I'm gonna break their hearts all 'round the world.
Yes, I'm gonna break 'em in two
And show you what your lovin' man can do,
Until then I'll cry instead.


Things We Said Today

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: Paul McCartney

You say you will love me
If I have to go.
You'll be thinking of me,
Somehow I will know.

Someday when I'm lonely,
Wishing you weren't so far away,
Then I will remember
Things we said today.

You say you'll be mine, girl,
'Till the end of the time.
These days such a kind girl
Seems so hard to find.

Someday when we're dreaming,
Deep in love, not a lot to say,
Then we will remember
Things we said today.

Me, I'm just the lucky kind,
Love to hear you say that love is love
And though we may be blind,
Love is here to stay and that's enough
To make you mine, girl,
Be the only one.
Love me all the time, girl,
We'll go on and on.

Some day when we're dreaming,
Deep in love, not a lot to say,
Then we will remember
Things we said today.

And though we may be blind,
Love is here to stay and that's enough
To make you mine, girl,
Be the only one.

We'll go on and on.

Someday when we're dreaming,
Deep in love, not a lot to say,
Then we will remember
Things we said today.

'Till I walk out that door again.

You Can't Do That

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: John Lennon

I got somethin' to say that might cause you pain
If I catch you talkin' to that boy again,
I'm gonna let you down
And leave you flat.
Because I told you before,
Oh, you can't do that.

Well it's the second time I've caught you talkin' to him,
Do I have to tell you one more time I think it's a sin?
I think I'll let you down (let you down)
And leave you flat (gonna let you down and leave you flat)
Because I told you before,
Oh, you can't do that.

Everybody's green
'Coz I'm the one who won your love.
But if they'd seen
You talkin' that way
They'd laugh in my face.

So, please listen to me if you wanna stay mine,
I can't help my feelings, I'll go out of my mind,
I'm gonna let you down (let you down)
And leave you flat (gonna let you down and leave you flat)
Because I told you before,
Oh, you can't do that.

[Noooo!]

You talkin' that way
They'd laugh in my face.

I'll Be Back

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: John Lennon

You know if you break my heart I'll go,
But I'll be back again.
'Coz I told you once before goodbye,
But I came back again.

I love you so-oh,
I'm the one who wants you,
Yes, I'm the one who wants you, oh-ho, oh-ho-oo.

You could find better things to do
Than to break my heart again.
This time I will try to show that I'm
Not trying to pretend.

I thought that you would realise
That if I ran away from you
That you would want me too
But I've got a big surprise, oh-ho, oh-ho-oo.

You could find better things to do
Than to break my heart again.
This time I will try to show that I'm
Not trying to pretend.

I wanna go but I hate to leave you
You know I hate to leave you, oh-ho, oh-ho-oo.
You, if you'll break my heart I'll go,
But I'll be back again.
