Taxman

(Harrison)

Lead vocal: George Harrison

[One, two, three, four, one, two...]

Let me tell you how it will be,
There's one for you, nineteen for me.
'Coz I'm the Taxman, yeah, I'm the Taxman.

Should five percent appear too small,
Be thankful I don't take it all.
'Coz I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the Taxman.

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat,
If you get too cold, I'll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.

Guitar Solo

'Coz I'm the Taxman, yeah, I'm the Taxman.

Don't ask me what I want it for (ah-ah Mister Wilson)
If you don't want to pay some more (ah-ah Mister Heath).
'Coz I'm the Taxman, yeah, I'm the Taxman.

Now my advice for those who die (Taxman),
Declare the pennies on your eyes (Taxman).
'Coz I'm the Taxman, yeah, I'm the Taxman.

And you're working for no one but me (Taxman).


Eleanor Rigby

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: Paul McCartney

Ah, look at all the lonely people,
Ah, look at all the lonely people.

Eleanor Rigby
Picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been,
Lives in a dream.
Waits at the window,
Wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door,
Who is it for?

All the lonely people,
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people,
Where do they all belong?

Father McKenzie,
Writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear,
No one comes near.
Look at him working,
Darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there,
What does he care?

All the lonely people,
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people,
Where do they all belong?

Ah, look at all the lonely people,
Ah, look at all the lonely people.

Eleanor Rigby
Died in the church and was buried along with her name,
Nobody came.
Father McKenzie,
Wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave,
No one was saved.

All the lonely people (ah, look at all the lonely people),
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people (ah, look at all the lonely people),
Where do they all belong?


I'm Only Sleeping

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: John Lennon

When I wake up early in the morning,
Lift my head, I'm still yawning.
When I'm in the middle of a dream,
Stay in bed, float up stream (float up stream).

Please don't wake me, no, don't shake me,
Leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping.

Everybody seems to think I'm lazy,
I don't mind, I think they're crazy.
Running everywhere at such a speed,
Until they find there's no need (there's no need).

Please don't spoil my day, I'm miles away
And after all I'm only sleeping.

Keepin' an eye on the world going by my window,
Taking my time.
Lying there and staring at the ceiling,
Waiting for a sleepy feeling.

Backwards Guitar Solo

Please don't spoil my day, I'm miles away
And after all I'm only sleeping.

[Yawn]
Keepin' an eye on the world going by my window,
Taking my time.
When I wake up early in the morning,
Lift my head, I'm still yawning.
When I'm in the middle of a dream,
Stay in bed, float up stream (float up stream).

Please don't wake me, no, don't shake me,
Leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping.


Love You To

(Harrison)

Lead vocal: George Harrison

Each day just goes so fast,
I turn around, it's past,
You don't get time to hang a sign on me.

Love me while you can
Before I'm dead, old man.

A lifetime is so short,
A new one can't be bought,
But what you've got means such a lot to me.

Make love all day long,
Make love singing songs.

Sitar Solo

Make love all day long,
Make love singing songs.

There's people standing 'round
Who'll screw you in the ground,
They'll fill you in with all the sins you'll see.

I'll make love to you
If you want me to.


Here, There And Everywhere

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: John Lennon

To lead a better life,
I need my love to be here...

Here,
Making each day of the year,
Changing my life with a wave of her hand,
Nobody can deny that there's something there.

There,
Running my hands through her hair,
Both of us thinking how good it can be,
Someone is speaking but she doesn't know he's there.

I want her everywhere,
And if she's beside me I know I need never care.
But to love her is to need her everywhere,
Knowing that love is to share.
Each one believing that love never dies,
Watching her eyes,
And hoping I'm always there.

I want her everywhere,
And if she's beside me I know I need never care.
But to love her is to need her everywhere,
Knowing that love is to share.
Each one believing that love never dies,
Watching her eyes,
And hoping I'm always there.

I will be there and everywhere,
Here, there and everywhere.


Yellow Submarine

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: Ringo Starr

In the town where I was born
Lived a man who sailed to sea,
And he told us of his life
In the land of submarines.

So we sailed up to the sun
'Till we found the sea of green,
And we lived beneath the waves
In our yellow submarine.

We all live in a yellow submarine,
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine.
We all live in a yellow submarine,
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine.

And our friends are all aboard,
Many more of them live next door.
And the band begins to play...

We all live in a yellow submarine,
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine.
We all live in a yellow submarine,
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine.

[Full steam ahead, Mr Boatswain, full steam ahead!
Full steam ahead it is, Sgt.
Cut the cable, drop the cable!
Aye-aye sir, aye-aye.
Captain, captain!]

As we live a life of ease
Everyone of us (everyone of us)
Has all we need (has all we need)
Sky of blue (sky of blue)
And sea of green (sea of green)
In our yellow (in our yellow)
Submarine (submarine, ah-hah!)

We all live in a yellow submarine,
A yellow submarine, a yellow submarine.
We all live in a yellow submarine,
A yellow submarine, yellow submarine.

We all live in a yellow submarine,
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine.
We all live in a yellow submarine,
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine.


She Said, She Said

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: John Lennon

She said, "I know what it's like to be dead,
I know what it is to be sad."
And she's making me feel like I've never been born.

I said, "Who put all those things in your head?
Things that make me feel that I'm mad,
And you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said, "You don't understand what I said."
I said, "No, no, no, you're wrong."
When I was a boy,
Everything was right,
Everything was right.

I said, "Even though you know what you know,
I know that I'm ready to leave
'Coz you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said, "You don't understand what I said."
I said, "No, no, no, you're wrong."
When I was a boy,
Everything was right,
Everything was right.

I said, "Even though you know what you know,
I know that I'm ready to leave
'Coz you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said (she said),
"I know what it's like to be dead (I know what it's like to be dead),
I know what it is to be sad (I know what it is to be sad),
I know what it's like to be dead" (I know what it's like to be dead).


Good Day Sunshine

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: Paul McCartney

Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine!

I need to laugh and when the sun is out
I've got something I can laugh about.
I feel good in a special way,
I'm in love and it's a sunny day.

Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine!

We take a walk, the sun is shining down,
Burns my feet as they touch the ground.

Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine!

Then we'd lie beneath the shady tree,
I love her and she's loving me.
She feels good, she knows she's looking fine,
I'm so proud to know that she is mine.

Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine!

Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine!

Good day sunshine,
(Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine!)


And Your Bird Can Sing

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: John Lennon

You tell me that you've got everything you want
And your bird can sing
But you don't get me,
You don't get me!

You say you've seen seven wonders
And your bird is green
But you can't see me,
You can't see me!

When your prized possessions
Start to weigh you down,
Look in my direction,
I'll be 'round, I'll be 'round.

Guitar Solo

When your bird is broken,
Will it bring you down?
You may be awoken,
I'll be 'round, I'll be 'round.

You tell me that you've heard every sound there is
And your bird can swim
But you can't hear me,
You can't hear me!


For No One

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: Paul McCartney

Your day breaks, your mind aches,
You find that all her words of kindness linger on
When she no longer needs you.

She wakes up, she makes up,
She takes her time and doesn't feel she has to hurry,
She no longer needs you.

And in her eyes you see nothing,
No sign of love behind the tears.
Cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years.

You want her, you need her
And yet you don't believe her
When she says her love is dead,
You think she needs you.

Horn Solo

And in her eyes you see nothing,
No sign of love behind the tears.
Cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years.

You stay home, she goes out,
She says that long ago she knew someone
But now he's gone,
She doesn't need him.

Your day breaks, your mind aches,
There will be times when all the things she said
Will fill your head,
You won't forget her.

And in her eyes you see nothing,
No sign of love behind the tears.
Cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years.


Doctor Robert

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: John Lennon

Ring my friend, I said you'd call Doctor Robert.
Day or night he'll be there any time at all, Doctor Robert.

Doctor Robert,
You're a new and better man,
He helps you to understand.
He does everything he can,
Doctor Robert.

If you're down he'll pick you up, Doctor Robert.
Take a drink from his special cup, Doctor Robert.

Doctor Robert,
He's a man you must believe,
Helping anyone in need.
No one can succeed like Doctor Robert.

Well, well, well, you're feeling fine.
Well, well, well, he'll make you...
Doctor Robert.

My friend works for the National Health, Doctor Robert.
Don't pay money just to see yourself with Doctor Robert.

Doctor Robert,
You're a new and better man,
He helps you to understand.
He does everything he can, Bob Robert.

Well, well, well, you're feeling fine.
Well, well, well, he'll make you...
Doctor Robert.

Ring my friend, I said you'd call Doctor Robert.
Ring my friend, I said you'd call Bob Robert.
Doctor Robert!


I Want To Tell You

(Harrison)

Lead vocal: George Harrison

I want to tell you,
My head is filled with things to say.
When you're here,
All those words, they seem to slip away.

When I get near you,
The games begin to drag me down.
It's alright,
I'll make you maybe next time around.

But if I seem to act unkind,
It's only me, it's not my mind
That is confusing things.

I want to tell you,
I feel hung up but I don't know why.
I don't mind,
I could wait forever, I've got time.

Sometimes I wish I knew you well,
Then I could speak my mind and tell you,
Maybe you'd understand.

I want to tell you,
I feel hung up but I don't know why.
I don't mind,
I could wait forever, I've got time.

I've got time,
I've got time.


Got To Get You Into My Life

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: Paul McCartney

I was alone, I took a ride,
I didn't know what I would find there.
Another road where maybe I
Could see another kind of mind there.

Ooo, then I suddenly see you,
Ooo, did I tell you I need you
Every single day of my life?

You didn't run, you didn't lie,
You knew I wanted just to hold you.
And had you gone you knew in time
We'd meet again for I had told you.

Ooo, you were meant to be near me,
Ooo, and I want you to hear me
Say we'll be together every day.

Got to get you into my life!

What can I do, what can I be?
When I'm with you I want to stay there.
If I'm true I'll never leave
And if I do I know the way there.

Ooo, then I suddenly see you,
Ooo, did I tell you I need you
Every single day of my life?

Got to get you into my life!

Guitar Solo
I got to get you into my life!

I was alone, I took a ride,
I didn't know what I would find there.
Another road where maybe I
Could see another kind of mind there.

And suddenly I see you,
Did I tell you I need you
Every single day?


Tomorrow Never Knows

(Lennon-McCartney)

Lead vocal: John Lennon

Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream,
It is not dying, it is not dying.

Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void,
It is shining, it is shining.

That you may see the meaning of within,
It is being, it is being.

Tape-Loops

That love is all and love is everyone,
It is knowing, it is knowing.

That ignorance and hate may mourn the dead,
It is believing, it is believing.

But listen to the colour of your dreams,
It is not living, it is not living.

Or play the game 'Existence' to the end,
Of the beginning, of the beginning.

Of the beginning, of the beginning,
Of the beginning, of the beginning,
Of the beginning.
