And keep you satisfied.

Thank You Girl

You be good to me, you made me glad when I was blue.
And eternally I'll always be in love with you.

And all I gotta do is thank you girl, thank you girl.
Thank you girl for lovin' me the way that you do,
That's the kind of love that is too good to be true
And all I gotta do is thank you girl, thank you girl.

I could tell the world a thing or two about our love.
I know little girl only a fool would doubt our love.

And all I gotta do is thank you girl, thank you girl.

And all I gotta do is thank you girl, thank you girl.

She Loves You

Lennon/McCartney

You think you've lost your love,
Well I saw her yesterday-yi-yay.
It's you she's thinking of,
And she told me what to say-yi-yay.

She says she loves you
And you know that can't be bad,
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad.
Oo, she loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah,
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah,
And with love like that,
You know you should be glad.

She said you hurt her so
She almost lost her mind.
And now she says she knows
You're not the hurting kind.

She says she loves you
And you know that can't be bad,
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad.
Oo, she loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah,

And with love like that,
You know you should be glad.

You know it's up to you,
I think it's only fair,
Pride can hurt you too,
Apologize to her

Because she loves you
And you know that can't be bad,
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad.
Oo, she loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah,
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah,
And with love like that,
You know you should be glad.

I'll Get You

Lennon/McCartney

Oh yeah, Oh yeah,
Oh yeah, Oh yeah!

Imagine I'm in love with you;
It's easy 'cause I know
I've imagined I'm in love with you
Many, many, many times before.

It's not like me to pretend,
But I'll get you, I'll get you in the end;
Yes, I will, I'll get you in the end.
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah!

I think about you night and day;
I need you and it's true,
When I think about you I can say,
I'm never, never, never, never blue,

So I'm telling you, my friend
That I'll get you, I'll get you in the end;
Yes, I will, I'll get you in the end.
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah!

Well, there's gonna be a time
When I'm gonna change your mind.
So, you might as well resign yourself to me.

I Want To Hold Your Hand

Lennon/McCartney

Oh, yeah, I'll tell you something
I think you'll understand,
Then I'll say that something
I wanna hold your hand,
I wanna hold your hand,
I wanna hold your hand.

Oh please say to me
You'll let me be your man,
And please say to me
You'll let me hold your hand,
Now let me hold your hand,
I wanna hold your hand.

And when I touch you
I feel happy inside,
It's such a feeling
That my love I can't hide,
I can't hide, I can't hide.

Yeah, you got that something,
I think you'll understand,
When I feel that something
I wanna hold your hand,

When I feel that something
I wanna hold your hand,
I wanna hold your hand,
I wanna hold your hand.

This Boy

Lennon/McCartney

That boy took my love away.
Oh, he'll regret it some day,
But this boy wants you back again.

That boy isn't good for you.
Though he may want you too,
This boy wants you back again.

Oh, and this boy would be happy just to love you,
But oh my-yi-yi-yi, that boy won't be happy
Till he's seen you cry hi-hi-hi.

This boy wouldn't mind the pain,
Would always feel the same
If this boy gets you back again.
This boy, this boy.

Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand

McCartney/Lennon

Oh, komm doch,

Oh, du bist so schön,
Schön wie ein Diamant,
Ich will mit dir gehen,

In deinen Armen bin ich glücklich und froh;
Das war noch nie bei einer andern
Einmal so.

Sie Liebt Dich

McCartney/Lennon

Du glaubst sie liebt nur mich?
Gestern hab' ich sie gesehen.
Sie denkt ja nur an dich,
Und du solltest zu ihr gehen.

Oh, ja sie liebt dich.
Schöner kann es gar nicht sein.
Ja, sie liebt dich,
Und da solltest du dich freu'n.

Du hast ihr weh getan,
Sie wusste nicht warum.
Du warst nicht schuld daran,
Und drehtest dich nicht um.

Oh, ja sie liebt dich. . . .

Sie liebt dich
Sie liebt dich
Denn mit dir allein kann sie nur glücklich sein.

Du musst jetzt zu ihr gehen,
Entschuldigst dich bei ihr.
Ja, das wid sie verstehen,
Und dann verzeiht sie dir.

Sie liebt dich
Denn mit dir allein kann sie nur glücklich sein.

I Call Your Name

McCartney/Lennon

I call your name but you're not there,
was I to blame for being unfair,
Oh I can't sleep at night, since you've been gone. I never
Weep at night I can't go on.

Well don't you know I can't take it. I don't know who can,
I'm not goin' to mayayake it I'm not that kind of man.
Oh I can't sleep at night, but just the same I never weep at
Night I call your name, I call your name.

Slow Down

Perkins

Matchbox

Lennon/McCartney


I said I'm sittin' here watchin'
Matchbox hole in my clothes.
I said I'm sittin' here watchin'
Matchbox hole in my clothes.
I ain't got no matches but I sure
got a long way to go.

I'm an ol' poor boy, and I'm a
long way from home.
I'm an ol' poor boy, and I'm a
long way from home.
I'll never be happy cause everything I've
ever did was wrong.

Well, If you don't want my peaches honey,
please don't shake my tree.
Well, If you don't want my peaches honey,
please don't shake my tree.
I got news for you baby, leave me here in
misery.

Well, let me be your little dog, till your
big dog comes.
Well, let me be your little dog, till your
big dog comes.
And when your big dog gets here, watch how
your puppy dog runs.

I said I'm sittin' here watchin'
Matchbox hole in my clothes.
I said I'm sittin' here watchin'
Matchbox hole in my clothes.
I ain't got no matches but I sure
got a long way to go.

I Feel Fine

Lennon/McCartney

Baby's good to me, you know,
She's happy as can be, you know,
She said so,
I'm in love with her and I feel fine.

Baby says she's mine, you know,
She tells me all the time, you know,
She said so,
I so glad that she's my little girl
She's so glad she's telling all the world

That her baby buys her things, you know.
He buys her diamond rings, you know.
She said so,
She's in love with me and I feel fine.

She's A Woman

Lennon/McCartney

My love don't give me presents,
I know that she's no peasant,
Only ever has to give me love forever and forever,
My love don't give me presents.

Turn me on when I get lonely
People tell me that she's only foolin',
I know she isn't.

She don't give boys the eye,
She hates to see me cry,
She is happy just to hear me say
That I will never leave her,
She don't give boys the eye.

She will never make me jealous,
Gives me all her time as well as lovin',
Don't ask me why.

She's a woman who understands,
She's a woman who loves her man.

My love don't give me presents,

I know she isn't.

She's a woman who understands,

She hates to see me cry,

Gives me all her time as well as lovin',
Don't ask me why.

She's a woman, she's a woman.

Bad Boy

Williams

A bad little kid moved into my neighborhood
He won't do nothing right just sitting down and looks so good
He don't want to go to school and learn to read and write
Just sits around the house and plays the rock and roll music all night
Well, he put some tacks on teachers chair
Puts some gum in little girl's hair
Hey, junior, behave yourself

Buys every rock and roll book on the magazine stand
Every dime that he get is lost to the jukebox man
Well he worries his teacher till at night she's ready to poop
From rocking and a-rolling spinning in a hula hoop
Well this rock and roll has got to stop
Junior's head is hard as rock
Now, junior, behave yourself

Going tell your mama you better do what she said
Get to the barber shop and get that hair cut off your head
Threw the canary and you fed it to the neighbors cat
You gave the cocker spaniel a bath in mother's laundramat
Well, mama's head has got to stop
Junior's head is hard as rock
Now, junior, behave yourself

Yes It Is

Lennon/McCartney

If you wear me tonight,
Remember what I said tonight,
For red is the color that my baby wore
And what's more it's true, yes it is.

Scarlet were the clothes she wore,
Ev'rybody know's I'm sure.
I would remember all the things we planned
Understand it's true, yes it is, it's true, yes it is.

I could be happy with you by my side
If I could forget her,but it's my pride.
Yes it is, yes it is, oh, yes it is, yeah.

Please don't wear red tonight,
This is what I said tonight,
For red is the color that will make me blue
In spite of you it's true, yes it is, it's true, yes it is, it's true.

I'm Down

Lennon/McCartney

You tell lies thinking I can't see,
You don't cry 'cos you're laughing at me.

I'm down, I'm down, I'm down,
How can you laugh when you know I'm down?

Man buys ring, woman throw it away,
Same old thing happen every day.

I'm down, I'm down, I'm down,
How can you laugh when you know I'm down?

We're all alone and there's nobody else.
You still moan, "Keep your hands to yourself"

I'm down, I'm down, I'm down,
How can you laugh when you know I'm down?

I said I'm down,
I'm really down,
I'm really down,
I'm really down,
Oo, oo,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
