Day Tripper

Lennon/McCartney

Got a good reason for talking the easy way out.
Got a good reason for talking the easy way out now.

She was a day tripper,
One way ticked, yeah!
It took me so long to find out, and I found out.

She's a big teaser, she took me half the way there.
She's a big teaser, she took me half the way there, now.

One way ticked, yeah!

Tried to please her, she only played one night stands.
Tried to please her, she only played one night stands, now.

She was a day tripper,
Sunday driver, yeah!

Day tripper, day tripper, yeah!

We Can Work It Out

Lennon/McCartney

Try to see it my way,
Do I have to keep on talking till I can't go on?
While you see it your way,
Run the risk of knowing that our love may soon be gone.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Think of what you're saying,
You can get it wrong and still you think that it's alright.
Think of what I'm saying,
We can work it out and get it straight or say goodnight.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Life is very short and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend.
I have always thought that it's a crime
So I will ask you once again.

Try to see it my way,
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong.
While you see it your way,
There's a chance that we might fall apart before too long.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Life is very short and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend.
I have always thought that it's a crime
So I will ask you once again.

Paperback Writer

Lennon/McCartney

Dear Sir or Madam will you read my book?
It took me years to write, will you take a look?
Based on a novel by a man named Lear
And I need a job so I want to be a paperback writer, paperback writer.

It's the dirty story of a dirty man,
And his clinging wife doesn't understand.
His son is working for the Daily Mail,
It's a steady job, but he wants to be a paperback writer, paperback writer.

It's thousand pages, give or take a few.
I'll be writing more in a week or two.
I can make it longer if you like the stile,
I can change it 'round and I want to be a paperback writer, paperback writer.

It you really like it you can have the things,
It could make a million for you overnight.
If you must return it you can send it here,
But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer, paperback writer.

Rain

Lennon/McCartney

If the rain comes they run and hide their heads
The night as well be dead
If the rain comes,
If the rain comes.

When the sun shines, they sleep in the shade
And sip their lemonade
When the sun shines,
When the sun shines.

Rain, I don't mind,
Shine, the weather's fine.

I can show you that when it starts to rain
Everything's the same
I can show you,
I can show you.

Rain, I don't mind,
Shine, the weather's fine.

Can you hear me that when to rains
And shines it's just a state
Can you hear me,
Can you hear me.

Lady Madonna

Lennon/McCartney

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet?
Who finds the money when you pay the rent,
Did you think that money was haven't sent?

Friday night arrives without a suitcase,
Sundayn morning creeping like a nun,
Monday's child has learned to tie his booflace.
See how they run.

Lady Madonna, baby at your breast
Wonder how you manage to feel the rest?
See how they run.

Lady Madonna lying on the bed,
Listen to the music playing in your head.
Tuesday afternoon is never ending,
Wednesday morning papers didn't come,
Thursday night your stocking needed mending.
See how they run.

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet?

The Inner Light

Harrison

Without going out of my door
I can know all things on earth.
Without looking out on my window
I could know the ways of heaven.

The farther one travels the less one knows, the less one knows.

Without going out of my door
You can know all things on earth.
Without looking out on my window
You could know the ways of heaven.

The farther one travels the less one knows, the less one knows.

Arrive without traveling,
See all without looking.

Hey Jude

Lennon/McCartney

Hey Jude, don't make it bad,
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

Hey Jude, don't be afraid,
You were made to go out and get her.
The minute you let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better.

And any time you feel the pain,
Hej Jude, refrain,
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders.
For now you know that it's a fool
Who plays it cool by making his world a little colder.
Da da da da da da da da da da

Hey Jude, don't let me down,
You have found her, now go and get her.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

So let it out and let it in,
Hey Jude, begin,
You're waiting for someone to perform with,
And don't you know that it's just you,
Hej Jude, you'll do.
The movement you need is on your shoulder.
Da da da da da da da da da da

Hey Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember, to let her under your skin
Then you'll begin to make it better

Hey Jude, Hey Jude

Revolution 1

Lennon/McCartney


You say you want a revolution
Well you know
we all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright Alright

You say you got a real solution
Well you know
we'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well you know
We're doing what we can
But when you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright Alright

You say you'll change the constitution
Well you know
we all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know know it's gonna be alright
Alright Alright

Get Back

Lennon/McCartney

Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner
But he knew it wouldn't last.
Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona
For some California grass.
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Jojo. Go home
Get back, get back.
Back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Back to where you once belonged.
Get back Jo.

Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman
But she was another man
All the girls around her say she's got it coming
But she gets it while she can
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Loretta. Go home
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Loretta
Your mother's waiting for you
Wearing her high-heel shoes
And her low-neck sweater
Get on home Loretta
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.

Don't Let Me Down

Lennon/McCartney

Nobody ever loved me like she does, oo, she does, yes, she does.
And if somebody loved me like she do me, oo, she do me, yes, she does.
Don't let me down, don't let me down,
Don't let me down, don't let me down,
I'm in love for the first time,
Don't you know, it's gonna last.
It's a love that lasts forever, it' a love that had no past.

And from the first time that she really done me, oo,
she done me she done me good.
I guess nobody ever really done me, oo,
she done me, she done me good.
Don't let me down, don't let me down,
Don't let me down, don't let me down.

The Ballad of John and Yoko

Lennon/McCartney


Standing in the dock at Southampton,
Trying to get to Holland or France.
The man in the mac said you've got to go back,
You know they didn't even give us a chance.

Christ! You know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going,
They're going to crucify me.

Finally made the plane into Paris,
Honeymooning down by the Seine.
Peter Brown called to say, you can make it O.K.,
You can get married in Gibralta near Spain.

Christ! You know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going,
They're going to crucify me.

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton,
Talking in our beds for a week.
The newspapers said, say what're you doing in bed,
I said we're only trying to get us some peace.

Christ! You know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going,
They're going to crucify me.

Saving up your money for a rainy day,
Giving all your clohes to charity.
Last night the wife said, Oh boy, when you're dead
You don't take
Nothing with you but your soul -
Think!

Made a lightning trip to Vienna,
Eating choc'late cake in a bag.
The newspapers said, she's gone to his head,
They look just like two Gurus in drag.

Christ! You know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going,
They're going to crucify me.

Caught the early plane back to London,
Fifty acorns tied in a sack.
The men from the press said we wish you success,
It's good to have the both of you back.

Christ! You know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going,
They're going to crucify me.

Old Brown Shoe

Harrison

I want a love that's right but right is only half of what's wrong.
I want a short haired girl who sometimes wears it twice as long.
Now I'm stepping out this old brown shoe, baby, I'm in love with you.
I'm so glad you came here, it won't be the same now, I'm telling you.

You know you pick me up from where some try to drag me down
And when I see your smile replace every thoughtless frown.
Got me escaping from this zoo, baby, I'm in love with you.
I'm so glad you came here, it won't be the same now when I'm with you.

If I grow up I'll be a singer wearing rings on every finger.
Not worrying what they or you say I'll live and love and maybe someday
Who knows, baby, you may comfort me.
I may appear to be imperfect, my love is something you can't reject.
I'm changing faster than the weather if you and me should get together
Who knows, baby, you may comfort me.

That love of your, to miss that love is something I'd hate.
I'll make an early start, I'm making sure that I'm not late.
For you sweet top lip I'm in the queue, baby, I'm in love with you.
I'm so glad you came here, it won't be the same now when I'm with you.
I'm so glad you came here, it won't be the same now when I'm with you.

Across The Universe

Lennon/McCartney

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind,
Possessing and caressing me.
Jai guru de va om
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
That call me on and on across the universe,
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box they
Tumble blindly as they make their way
Across the universe
Jai guru de va om
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.

Sounds of laughter shades of earth are ringing
Through my open views inviting and inciting me
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a
million suns, it calls me on and on
Across the universe
Jai guru de va om
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.

Let it Be

Lennon/McCartney


When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be. Yeah
There will be an answer, let it be.

And when the night is cloudy,
There is still a light that shines on me,
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be,
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.
