Lyrics

Back in the U.S.S.R.
02:43
Flew in from Miami Beach BOAC
Didn't get to bed last night
On the way the paper bag was on my knee
Man, I had a dreadful flight

I'm back in the USSR
You don't know how lucky you are, boy
Back in the USSR

Been away so long I hardly knew the place
Gee, it's good to be back home
Leave it 'til tomorrow to unpack my case
Honey disconnect the phone

I'm back in the USSR
You don't know how lucky you are, boy
Back in the US, Back in the US, Back in the USSR

Well, the Ukraine girls really knock me out
They leave the west behind
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout
That Georgia's always on my mi-mi-mi-mi-mind

I'm back in the USSR
You don't know how lucky you are, boy
Back in the USSR

Well, the Ukraine girls really knock me out
They leave the west behind
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout
That Georgia's always on my mi-mi-mi-mi-mind

Show me 'round your snow peaked mountains way down south
Take me to your daddy's farm
Let me hear your balalaikas ringing out
Come and keep your comrade warm

I'm back in the USSR
You don't know how lucky you are, boy
Back in the USSR
Dear Prudence
03:56
Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day
The sun is up, the sky is blue
It's beautiful and so are you
Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play?

Dear Prudence, open up your eyes
Dear Prudence, see the sunny skies
The wind is low, the birds will sing
That you are part of everything
Dear Prudence, won't you open up your eyes?

Look around, 'round, 'round
Look around, 'round, 'round
Look around

Dear Prudence, let me see you smile
Dear Prudence, like a little child
The clouds will be a daisy chain
So let me see you smile again
Dear Prudence, won't you let me see you smile?

Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day
The sun is up, the sky is blue
It's beautiful and so are you
Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play?
Glass Onion
02:18
I told you 'bout Strawberry Fields
You know the place where nothing is real
Well, here's another place you can go
Where everything flows
Looking through the bent backed tulips
To see how the other half live
Looking through a glass onion

I told you 'bout the walrus and me, man
You know that we're as close as can be, man
Well, here's another clue for you all
The walrus was Paul
Standing on a cast iron shore, yeah
Lady Madonna trying to make ends meet, yeah
Looking through a glass onion

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Looking through a glass onion

I told you 'bout the fool on the hill
I tell you man he's living there still
Well, here's another place you can be
Listen to me
Fixing a hole in the ocean
Trying to make a dovetail joint
Looking through the glass onion
Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da
03:09
Desmond has a barrow in the market place
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly girl I like your face
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

Desmond takes a trolley to the jeweller's store
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet howe
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones

Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond lets the children lend a hand
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet howe
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones

Happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

And if you want some fun
Take ob-la-di ob-la-da

The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill
03:14
Hey, Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

He went out tiger hunting with his elephant and gun
In case of accidents he always took his mom
He's the all American bullet headed Saxon mother's son

All the children sing
Hey, Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

Deep in the jungle where the mighty tiger lies
Bill and his elephants were taken by surprise
So captain Marvel zapped him right between the eyes

All the children sing
Hey, Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

The children asked him if to kill was not a sin
"Not when he looked so fierce", his mommy butted in
"If looks could kill it would have been us instead of him"

All the children sing
Hey, Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill, what did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
While My Guitar Gently Sleeps
04:45
I look at you all, see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you

I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
I with every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know how you were diverted, you were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted, no one alerted you

I look at you all, see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps
Happiness Is a Warm Gun
02:44
She's not a girl who misses much
Do, do, do, do, do, do, oh yeah

She's well acquainted with touch of the velvet hand like a lizard on a window pane
The man in the crowd with the multicolored mirrors on his hobnail boots
Lying with his eyes while his hands are busy working overtime
A soap impression of his wife, which he ate and donated to the National Trust

I need a fix 'cause I'm going down
Down to the bits that I left up town
I need a fix 'cause I'm going down

Mother superior jump the gun
Mother superior jump the gun
Mother superior jump the gun
Mother superior jump the gun
Mother superior jump the gun
Mother superior jump the gun

Happiness is a warm gun
Happiness is a warm gun, mama

When I hold you in my arms
And I feel my finger on your trigger
I know nobody can do me no harm
Because, (happiness) is a warm gun, mama

Happiness is a warm gun

Happiness is a warm, yes it is, gun

Well don't you know that happiness is a warm gun
Martha My Dear
02:29
Martha, my dear
Though I spend my days in coversation, please
Remember me
Martha, my love, don't forget me
Martha, my dear

Hold your head up, you silly girl
Look what you've done
When you find yourself in the thick of it
Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you
Silly girl

Take a good look around you
Take a good look you've bound to see
That you and me were meant to be
For each other, silly girl

Hold your head up, you silly girl
See what you've done
When you find yourself in the thick of it
Help yourself to a bit
Of what is all around you
Silly girl

Martha, my dear
You have always been my inspiration, please
Be good to me
Martha, my love, don't forget me
Martha, my dear
I'm So Tired
02:03
I'm so tired
I haven't slept a wink
I'm so tired
My mind is on the blink
I wonder should I get up
And fix myself a drink, no, no, no

I'm so tired
I don't know what to do
I'm so tired
My mind is set on you
I wonder should I call you
But I know what you would do

You say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke
It's doing me harm
You know I can't sleep
I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks
I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind

I'm so tired
I'm feeling so upset
Oh, I'm so tired
I have another cigarette
And curse Sir Walter Raleigh
He was such a stupid get

You say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke
It's doing me harm
You know I can't sleep
I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks
I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind
I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind
I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind
Blackbird
02:18
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird, fly
Blackbird, fly into the light of a dark, black night

Blackbird, fly
Blackbird, fly into the light of a dark, black night

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
Piggies
02:04
Have you seen the little piggies
Crawling in the dirt
And for all the little piggies
Life is getting worse
Always having dirt to play around in

Have you seen the bigger piggies
In their starched white shirts
You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt
Always have clean shirts to play around in

In their styes with all their backing
They don't care what goes on around
In their eyes there's something lacking
What they need's a damn good whacking

Everywhere there's lots of piggies
Living piggy lives
You can see them out for dinner
With their piggy wives
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon
Rocky Raccoon
03:33
Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota
There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon
And one day his woman ran off with another guy
Hit Young Rocky in the eye, Rocky didn't like that
He said: "I'm gonna get that boy"
So one day he walked into town
Booked himself a room in the local saloon

Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
Only to find Gideon's Bible
Rocky had come equipped with a gun
To shot off the legs of his rival

His rival it seems had broken his dreams
By stealing the girl of his fancy
Her name was Magill and she called herself Lill
But everyone knew her as Nancy

Now she and her man who called himself Dan
Were in the next room at the hoe down
Rocky bust in and grinning a grin
He said Danny boy this is a showdown

But Daniel was hot, he drew first and shot
And Rocky collapsed in the corner

Now the doctor came in stinking of gin
And proceeded to lie on the table
He said Rocky you met your match
And Rocky said: "Doc it's only a scratch
And I'll be better, I'll be better
Doc, as soon as I am able"

Now Rocky Raccoon he fell back in his room
Only to find Gideon's Bible
Gideon checked out and he left it, no doubt
To help with good Rocky's revival

That's the story of Rocky Raccoon
Don't Pass Me By
03:51
I listen for your footsteps coming up the drive
Listen for your footsteps, but they don't arrive
Waiting for your knock, dear, on my old front door
I don't hear it, does it mean you don't love me any more?

I hear the clock a-ticking on the mantel shelf
See the hands a-moving, but I'm by myself
I wonder where you are tonight and why I'm by myself
I don't see you, does it mean you don't love me any more?

Don't pass me by, don't make me cry, don't make me blue
'Cause you know, darling, I love only you
You'll never know it hurts me so, I hate to see you go
Don't pass me by, don't make me cry

I'm sorry that I doubted you, I was so unfair
You were in a car crash and you lost your hair
You said that you would be late about an hour or two
I said that's all right, I'm waiting here, just waiting to hear from you

Don't pass me by, don't make me cry, don't make me blue
'Cause you know, darling, I love only you
You'll never know it hurts me so, I'll hate to see you go
Don't pass me by, don't make me cry
Why Don't We Do It in the Road?
01:42
Why don't we do it in the road?
Why don't we do it in the road?
Why don't we do it in the road?
Why don't we do it in the road?
No one will be watching us
Why don't we do it in the road?

Why don't we do it in the road?
Why don't we do it in the road?
Why don't we do it in the road?
Why don't we do it in the road?
No one will be watching us
Why don't we do it in the road?

Why don't we do it in the road?
Why don't we do it in the road?
Why don't we do it, do it in the road?
Why don't we do it in the road?
No one will be watching us
Why don't we do it in the road?
It Will
01:46
Who knows how long I've loved you
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime
If you want me to, I will

For if I ever saw you
I didn't catch your name
But it never really mattered
I will always feel the same

Love you forever and forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we're together
Love you when we're apart

And when at last I find you
You song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the things you do endear you to me
You know I will
I will
Julia
02:54
Half of what I say is meaningless
But I say it just to reach you, Julia

Julia, Julia, oceanchild, calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia
Julia, seashell eyes, windy smile, calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia

Her hair of floating sky is shimmering
Glimmering in the sun

Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia

When I cannot sing my heart
I can only speak my mind, Julia

Julia, sleeping sand, silent cloud, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia

Mm mm mm calls me
So I sing a song of love for Julia
Julia, Julia

Yer Blues
04:01
Yes, I'm lonely, wanna die
Yes, I'm lonely, wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Girl, you know the reason why
In the morning, wanna die
In the evening, wanna die
Girl, you know the reason why

My mother was of the sky
My father was of the earth
But I am of the universe
And you know what it's worth

Yes, I'm lonely, wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Girl, you know the reason why

The eagle picks my eye
The worm, he licks my bone
I feel so suicidal
Just like Dylan's Mister Jones

Lonely, wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Girl, you know the reason why

The black cloud crossed my mind
Blue mist 'round my soul
I feel so suicidal
Even hate my rock and roll

Wanna die, wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Girl, you know the reason why
Mother Nature's Son
02:48
Born a poor young country boy, Mother Nature's son
All day long I'm sitting, singing songs for everyone
Sit beside a mountain stream, see her waters rise
Listen to the pretty sound of music and she flies

Find me in my field of grass, Mother Nature's son
Swaying daisies sing a lazy song beneath the sun

Mother Nature's son
Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey
02:25
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on is such a joy, come on is such a joy
Come on is take it easy, come on is take it easy
Take it easy, take it easy
Everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey

The deeper you go, the higher you fly
The higher you fly, the deeper you go
So come on, come on
Come on is such a joy, come on is such a joy
Come on is make it easy, come on is make it easy
Take it easy, take it easy
Everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey

Your inside is out and your outside is in
Your outside is in and your inside is out
So come on, come on
Come on is such a joy, come on is such a joy
Come on is make it easy, come on is make it easy
Take it easy, take it easy
Everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey
Sexy Sadie
03:15
Sexy Sadie, what have you done
You made a fool of everyone
You made a fool of everyone
Sexy Sadie, oh, what have you done?

Sexy Sadie, you broke the rules
You laid it down for all to see
You laid it down for all to see
Sexy sadie, oh, you broke the rules

One sunny day the world was waiting for a lover
She came along to turn on everyone
Sexy Sadie, the greatest of them all

Sexy Sadie, how did you know
The world was waiting just for you
The world was waiting just for you
Sexy Sadie, oh, how did you know?

Sexy Sadie, you'll get yours yet
However big you think you are
However big you think you are
Sexy Sadie, oh, you'll get yours yet

We gave her everything we owned just to sit at her table
Just a smile would lighten everything
Sexy Sadie, she's the latest and the greatest of them all

She made a fool of everyone
Helter Skelter
04:30
When I got to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
'Til I get to the bottom and I see you again, yeah

Do you, don't you want me to love you?
I'm coming down fast, but I'm miles above you
Tell me, tell me, tell me, come on tell me the answer
Well, you may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Helter skelter, helter skelter
Helter skelter, yeah

Will you, won't you want me to make you
I'm coming down fast, but don't let me break you
Tell me, tell me, tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Look out
Helter skelter, helter skelter
Helter skelter!
Look out, 'cause here she comes

When I got to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
And I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
And I get to the bottom and I see you again, yeah

Do you, don't you want me to make you
I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you
Tell me, tell me, tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Long, Long, Long
03:04
It's been a long, long, long time
How could I ever have lost you
When I loved you

It took a long, long, long time
Now I'm so happy I found you
How I love you

So many tears I was searching
So many tears I was wasting, oh, oh

Now I can see you, be you
How can I ever misplace you
How I want you
Oh, I love you
You know that I need you
Oh, I love you
Revolution 1
04:16
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 that you can count me out/in
Don't you know it's gonna be alright

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know, we'd all love to see the plan
You asked me for a contribution
Well, you know, we're doing what we can
But if 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

You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know we'd all love 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 it's gonna be alright
Honey Pie
02:41
She was a working girl
North of England way
Now she's hit the big time
It the USA

And if she could only hear me
This is what I'd say

Honey pie, you are making me crazy
I'm in love, but I'm lazy
So won't you please come home

Oh honey pie, my position is tragic
Come and show me the magic
Of your Hollywood song

You became a legend of the silver screen
And now the thought of meeting you
Makes me weak in the knee

Oh honey pie, you are driving me frantic
Sail across the Atlantic
To be where you belong

Will the wind that blew her boat
Across the sea
Kindly send her sailing back to me

Honey pie, you are making me crazy
I'm in love, but I'm lazy
So won't you please come home
Savoy Truffle
02:55
Creme tangerine and montelimar
A ginger sling with a pineapple heart
A coffee dessert, yes, you know it's good news
But you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle

Cool cherry cream and a nice apple tart
I feel your taste all the time we're apart
Coconut fudge really blows down those blues
But you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle

You might not feel it now
But when the pain cuts through you're going to know and how
The sweat is gonna fill your head
When it becomes too much you'll shout aloud

But you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle

You know that what you eat you are
But what is sweet now turns so sour
We all know ob-la-di-bla-da
But can you show me where you are

Creme tangerine and montelimar
A ginger sling with a pineapple heart
A coffee dessert, yes, you know it's good news
But you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle
Yes, you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle
Cry Baby Cry
03:02
Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better

The king of Marigold was in the kitchen cooking breakfast
for the queen
The queen was in the parlor playing piano for the children
of the king

Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better
So cry baby cry

The king was in the garden picking flowers for a friend
who came to play
The queen was in the playroom painting pictures for
the children's holiday

Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better
So cry baby cry

The duchess of Kircaldy always smiling and arriving late for tea
The duke was having problems with a message at the local Bird and Bee

Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better
So cry baby cry

At twelve o'clock a meeting 'round the table for a seance in the dark
With voices out of nowhere put on specially by the children
for a lark

Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better
So cry baby cry
