Lyrics

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
02:03
It was twenty years ago today
Sergeant Pepper tought the band to play
They've been going in and out of style
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile
So may I introduce to you
The act you've known for all these years
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

We're Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
We hope you will enjoy the show
We're Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Sit back and let the evening go
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

It's wonderful to be here
It's certainly a thrill
You're such a lovely audience
We'd like to take you home with us
We'd love to take you home

I don't really want to stop the show
But I thought that you might like to know
That the singer's going to sing a song
And he wants you all to sing alone
So let me introduce to you
The one and lonely Billy Shears
And Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
With a Little Help from My Friends
02:44
What would you think if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends

What do I do when my love is away
Does it worry you to be alone?
How do I feel by the end of the day
Are you sad because you're on your own?

No, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody?
I need somebody to love
Could it be anybody?
I want somebody to love

Would you believe in a love at first sight?
Yes, I'm certain that it happens all the time
What do you see when you turn out the light?
I can't tell you, but I know it's mine

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody?
I does need someone to love
Could it be anybody?
I want somebody to love

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends
Oh, I get high with a little help from my friends
Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
03:29
Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Celophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes and she's gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
That grow so incredibly high

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds and you're gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Picture yourself on a train in a station
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Getting Better
02:48
It's getting better all the time

I used to get mad at my school
The teachers who taught me weren't cool
Holding me down
Turning me round
Filling me up with your rules

I've got to admit it's getting better
It's a little better all the time
I have to admit it's getting better
It's getting better since you've been mine

Me used to be angry young man
Me hiding my head in the sand
You gave me the word
I finally heard
I'm doing the best that I can

I've got to admit it's getting better
It's a little better all the time
I have to admit it's getting better
It's getting better since you've been mine
Getting so much better all the time
It's getting better all the time
It's getting better all the time

I used to be cruel to my woman, I beat her
And kept her apart from the things that she loved
Man, I was mean but I'm changing my scene
And I'm doing the best that I can

I've got to admit it's getting better
It's a little better all the time
Yes, I admit it's getting better
It's getting better since you've been mine
Getting so much better all the time
It's getting better all the time
It's getting better all the time
Getting so much better all the time
Fixing a Hole
02:37
I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
And stops my mind from wandering where it will go
I'm filling the cracks that ran through the door
And kept my mind from wandering where it will go

And it really doesn't matter
If I'm wrong, I'm right
Where I belong, I'm right
Where I belong
See the people standing there
Who disagree and never win
And wonder why they don't get in my door

I'm painting the room in a colorful way
And when my mind is wandering, there I will go

And it really doesn't matter
If I'm wrong, I'm right
Where I belong, I'm right
Where I belong
See the people standing there
Who disagree and never win
And wonder why they don't get in my door

I taking a time for a number of things
That went important yesterday and I still come
I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
And stops my mind from wandering where it will go
I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
And stops my mind from wandering where it will go
She's Leaving Home
03:35
Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more

She goes down stairs to the kitchen clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the back door key
Stepping outside she is free

She (We gave her most of our lives)
Is leaving (Sacrificed most of our lives)
Home (We gave her everything money could buy)
She's leaving home after living alone for so many years

Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown
Pick up the letter that's lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs

She breaks down and cries to her husband "Daddy, our baby's gone
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly
Now could she do this to me"

She (We never thought of ourselves)
Is leaving (Never a thought of ourselves)
Home (We struggled hard all our lives to get by)
She's leaving home after living alone for so many years

Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the motor trade

She (What did we do that was wrong)
Is having (We didn't know it was wrong)
Fun (Fun is the one thing that money can't buy)
Something inside that was always denied for so many years

She's leaving home, bye, bye
Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite
02:37
For the benefit of mr. Kite there will be a show tonight on trampoline
The Hendersons will all be there late of Pablo Fanques fair, what a scene
Over men and horses, hoops and garters, lastly through a hogs head of real fire
In this way mr. K. will challenge the world

The celebrated mr. K. performs his feat on Saturday at Bishopsgate
The Hendersons will dance and sing as mr. Kite flies through the ring don't be late
Messrs. K. and H. assure the public their production will be second to none
And of course Henry the horse dances the waltz

The band begin at ten to six when mr. K. performs his tricks without a sound
And mr. H. will demonstrate ten somersets he'll undertake on solid ground
Having been some days in preparation, a splendid time is guaranteed for all
And tonight mr. Kite is topping the bill
Within You Without You
05:05
We were talking about the space between us all
And the people who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth, then it's far too late when they pass away

We were talking about the love we all could share
When we find it to try our best to hold it there
With our love, with our love we could save the world if they only knew

Try to realize it's all within yourself
No one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small
And life flows on within you and without you

We were talking about the love that's gone so cold
And the people who gain the world and lose their soul
They don't know, they can't see. Are you one of them?

When you see beyond yourself then you may find
Peace of mind is waiting there
And the time will come when you see we're all one
And life flows on within and without you
When I'm Sixty-Four
02:38
When I get older losing my hair many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings, bottle of wine
If I'd been out till quarter to three would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty four?

You'll be older too
Ah, and if you say the word
I could stay with you

I could be handy mending a fuse when your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fire side
Sunday mornings, go for a ride
Doing the garden, digging the weeds, who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty four?

Every summer we can rent a cottage on the Isle of Wight
If it's not too dear
We shall scrimp and save
Ah, grandchildren on your knee
Vera, Chuck and Dave

Send me a postcard, drop me a line, stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
You're sincerely wasting away
Give me your answer, fill in a form, mine forever more
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty four?
Lovely Rita
02:42
Lovely Rita, meter maid
Lovely Rita, meter maid

Lovely Rita, meter maid
Nothing can come between us
When it gets dark I tow your heart away

Standing by a parking meter
When I caught a glimpse of Rita
Filling in a ticked in her little white book

In a cap she looked much older
And the bag across her shoulder
Made her look a little like a military man

Lovely Rita, meter maid
May I enquire discreetly
When are you free to take some tea with me?

Took her out and tried to win her
Had a laugh and over dinner
Told her I would really like to see her again

Got the bill and Rita paid it
Took her home I nearly made it
Sitting on the sofa with a sister or two

Oh, lovely Rita meter maid
Where would I be without you
Give us a wink and make me think of you

Lovely Rita, meter maid
Lovely Rita, meter maid
Good Morning Good Morning
02:41
Good morning, good morning, good morning.

Nothing to do to save his life, call his wife in
Nothing to say but what a day, how's your boy been?
Nothing to do it's up to you
I've got nothing to say, but it's OK
Good morning, good morning, good morning

Going to work don't want to go, feeling low down
Heading for home you start to roam, then you're in town

Everybody knows there's nothing doing
Everything is closed, it's like a ruin
Everyone you see is half asleep
And you're on your own, you're in the street

After a while you start to smile, now you feel cool
Then you decide to take a walk, by the old school
Nothing has changed, it's still the same
I've got nothing to say, but it's OK
Good morning, good morning, good morning

People running round, it's five o'clock
Everywhere in town it's getting dark
Everyone you see in full of life
It's time for tea and meet the wife

Somebody needs to know the time, glad that I'm here
Watching the skirts you start to flirt, now you're in gear
Go to a show, you hope she goes
I've got nothing to say, but it's OK
Good morning, good morning, good morning

We're sorry, but it's time to go

We'd like to thank you once again
Sergeant Pepper's one and only Lonely Hearts Club Band
It's getting very near the end

A Day in the Life
05:34
I read the news today, oh boy
About a lucky man who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph

He blew his mind out in a car
He didn't notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd seen his face before
Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords

I saw a film today, oh boy
The English army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away
But I just had to look
Having read the book
I'd love to turn you on

Woke up, got out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up I notice I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in second flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream

I read the news today, oh boy
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall
I'd love to turn you on
