Drive My Car
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )
.
Asked a girl what she wanted to be,
She said , "Baby, can't you see?
I wanna be famous, a star of the screen,
But you can do something in between."

"Baby, you can drive my car,
Yes I'm gonna be a star.
Baby, you can drive my car,
And maybe I love you."
.
I told that girl that my prospects were good,
She said, "Baby, it's understood.
Working for peanuts is all very fine,
But I can show you a better time."

"Baby, you can drive my car,
Yes I'm gonna be a star.
Baby, you can drive my car,
And maybe I love you."
Beep beep mm beep beep, yeah!
"Baby, you can drive my car,
Yes I'm gonna be a star.
Baby, you can drive my car,
And maybe I love you."
.
I told that girl I could start right away,
She said, "Listen, baby, I've got something to say.
I got no car and it's breaking my heart,
But I've found a driver, that's a start."

"Baby, you can drive my car,
Yes I'm gonna be a star.
Baby, you can drive my car,
And maybe I love you."
Beep beep mm beep beep, yeah!back to top
Norwegian Wood
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )
.
I once had girl,
Or should I say,
She once had me;
She showed me her room,
Isn't it good,
Norwegian wood?
She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere.
So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair.

I sat on a rug,
Biding my time,
Drinking her wine,
We talked until two,
And then she said,
"It's time for bed."
She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh.
I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the bath.

And when I awoke,
I was alone,
This bird had flown;
So I lit a fire,
Isn't it good,
Norwegian wood?back to top
You Won't See Me
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

When I call you up, your line's engaged.
I have had enough, so get your age.
We have lost the time that was so hard to find,
And I will lose my mind if you won't see me,
You won't see me.

I don't know why you should want to hide.
But I can't get through, my hands are tied.
I don't want to stay, I don't have much to say,
But I can turn away and you won't see me,
You won't see me.

Time after time you refuse to even listen.
I wouldn't mind if I knew what I was missin'.
Though the days are few, they're filled with tears.
And since I lost you it feels like years.
Yes it seems so long girl since you've been gone,
And I just can't go on if you won't see me,
You won't see me.

Time after time you refuse to even listen.
I wouldn't mind if I knew what I was missin'.
Though the days are few, they're filled with tears.
And since I lost you it feels like years.
Yes it seems so long girl since you've been gone,
And I just can't go on if you won't see me,
You won't see me.back to top
Nowhere Man
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

He's a real nowhere man,
Sitting in his nowhere land,
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody.

Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Nowhere man, please listen,
You don't know what you're missing,
Nowhere man, the world is at your command.

He's a blind as he can be,
Just sees what he wants to see,
Nowhere man can you see me at all?

Nowhere man, don't worry,
Take your time, don't hurry,
Leave it all till somebody else lends you a hand.

Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Nowhere man, please listen,
You don't know what you're missing,
Nowhere man, the world is at your command.

He's a real nowhere man,
Sitting in his nowhere land,
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody,
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody,
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody.back to top
Think For Yourself
( G. Harrison )

I've got a word or two
To say about the things that you do.
You're telling all those lies
About the good things that we can have if we close our eyes.

Do what you want to do,
And go where you're going to.
Think for yourself 'cause I won't be there with you.

I left you far behind
The ruins of the life that you had in mind.
And though you still can't see,
I know your mind's made up, you're gonna cause more misery.

Do what you want to do,
And go where you're going to.
Think for yourself 'cause I won't be there with you.

Although your mind's opaque,
Try thinking more if just for your own sake.
The future still looks good
And you've got time to rectify all the things that you should.

Do what you want to do,
And go where you're going to.
Think for yourself 'cause I won't be there with you.
Do what you want to do,
And go where you're going to.
Think for yourself 'cause I won't be there with you,
Think for yourself 'cause I won't be there with you.back to top
The Word
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

Say the word and you'll be free,
Say the word and be like me.
Say the word I'm thinking of
Have you heard the word is love?
It's so fine, it's sunshine,
It's the word love.

In the beginning I misunderstood,
But now I've got it, the word is good;

Say the word and you'll be free,
Say the word and be like me.
Say the word I'm thinking of
Have you heard the word is love?
It's so fine, it's sunshine,
It's the word love.

Ev'rywhere I go I hear it said,
In the good and the bad books that I have read,

Say the word and you'll be free,
Say the word and be like me.
Say the word I'm thinking of
Have you heard the word is love?
It's so fine, it's sunshine,
It's the word love.

Now that I know what I feel must be right.
I mean to show ev'rybody the light.

Give the word a chance to say
That the word is just the way.
It's the word I'm thinking of
And the only word is love
It's so fine, it's sunshine,
It's the word love.
Say the word, love.
Say the word, love.back to top
Michelle
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

Michelle, ma belle
These are words that go together well,
My Michelle.
Michelle, ma belle
Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble,
Tres bien ensemble.

I love you, I love you, I love you,
That's all I want to say,
Until I find a way
I will say the only words I know
That you'll understand.

Michelle, ma belle
Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble,
Tres bien ensemble.

I need to, I need to, I need to,
I need to make you see
Oh what you mean to me,
Until I do I'm hoping you will know
What I mean.
I love you.

I want you, I want you, I want you,
I think you know by now,
I'll get to you somehow
Until I do I'm telling you
So you'll understand.

Michelle, ma belle
Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble,
Tres bien ensemble.

I will say the only words I know
That you'll understand,
My Michelle.back to top
What Goes On?
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney, R. Starkey )

What goes on in your heart?
What goes on in your mind?
You are tearing me apart
When you treat me so unkind.
What goes on in your mind?

The other day I saw you as I walked along the road,
But when I saw him with you I could feel my future fold.
It's so easy for a girl like you to lie
Tell me why.

What goes on in your heart?
What goes on in your mind?
You are tearing me apart
When you treat me so unkind.
What goes on in your mind?
.
I met you in the morning, waiting for the tides of time,
But now the tide is turn me I can see that I was blind.
It's so easy for a girl like you to lie
Tell me why.

What goes on in your heart?

I used to think of nobody else but you were just the same,
You didn't even think of me as someone with a name.
Did you mean to break my heart and watch me die.
Tell me why.

What goes on in your heart?
What goes on in your mind?
You are tearing me apart
When you treat me so unkind.
What goes on in your mind?back to top
Girl
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

Is there anybody going' to listen to my story
All about the girl who came to stay?
She's a kind of girl you want so much it makes you sorry;
Still, you don't regret a single day.
Ah, girl!

When I think of all the times I've tried so hard to leave her,
She will turn to me and start to cry.
And the promises the earth to me and I believe her,
After all this time I don't know why.
Ah, girl!

She's a kind of girl who puts you down when friends are there,
You feel a fool.
When you say she's looking good she acts as if it's understood,
She's cool, cool, cool, cool.
Ah, girl!

Was she told when she was young that fame would lead to pleasure.
Did she understand it when they said
That a man must break his back to earn his day of leisure?
Will she still believe it when he's dead?
Ah, girl!back to top
I'm Looking Through You
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

I'm looking through you,
Where did you go?
I thought I knew you,
What did I know?
You don't look diff'rent,
But you have changed.
I'm looking through you,
You're not the same.

Your lips are moving,
I cannot hear;
Your voice is soothing,
But the words aren't clear
You don't sound diff'rent,
I've learned the game
I'm looking through you,
You're not the same.

Why, tell me why did you not treat me right?
Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight.

You're thinking of me
The same old way.
You were above me,
But not today.
The only diff'rence
Is you're down there.
I'm looking through you,
And you're nowhere.

Why, tell me why did you not treat me right?
Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight.

I'm looking through you,
Where did you go?
I thought I knew you,
What did I know?
You don't look diff'rent,
But you have changed.
I'm looking through you,
You're not the same.back to top
In My Life
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed,
Some forever, not for better,
Some have gone and some remain.

All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall.
Some are dead and some are living,
In my life I've loved them all.

But of all these friends and lovers,
There's no one compares with you,
And these mem'ries lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new.

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before,
I know I'll often stop and think about them,
In my life I'll love you more.

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before,
I know I'll often stop and think about them,
In my life I'll love you more.
In my life I'll love you more.back to top
Wait
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

It's been a long time, now I'm coming back home.
I've been away now, oh, how, I've been alone.

Wait till I come back to your side,
We forget the tears we cried;

But if your heart breaks, don't wait, turn me away.
And if your heart's strong, hold on, I won't delay.

Wait till I come back to your side,
We forget the tears we cried;

I feel as though you ought to know
That I've been good, as good as I can be.
And if you do I'll trust in you
And know that you will wait for me.

It's been a long time, now I'm coming back home.
I've been away now, oh, how, I've been alone.

Wait till I come back to your side,
We forget the tears we cried;

I feel as though you ought to know
That I've been good, as good as I can be.
And if you do I'll trust in you
And know that you will wait for me.

But if your heart breaks, don't wait, turn me away.
And if your heart's strong, hold on, I won't delay.

Wait till I come back to your side,
We forget the tears we cried;

It's been a long time, now I'm coming back home.
I've been away now, oh, how, I've been alone.back to top
If I Needed Someone
( G. Harrison )

If I needed someone to love,
You're the one that I'd be thinking of,
If I needed someone.

If I had some more time to spend,
Then I guess I'd be with you my friend,
If I needed someone.

Had you come some other day then
It might not have been like this.
But you see now I'm too much in love.
Carve your number on my wall and
Maybe you will get a call from me,
If I needed someone.

If I had some more time to spend,
Then I guess I'd be with you my friend,
If I needed someone.

Had you come some other day then
It might not have been like this.
But you see now I'm too much in love.
Carve your number on my wall and
Maybe you will get a call from me,
If I needed someone.back to top
Run For Your Life
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

I'd rather see you dead, little girl than to be with another man.
You'd better keep your head, little girl, or I won't know where I am.

You better run for your life if you can, little girl,
Hide your head in the sand, little girl,
Catch you with another man, that's the end, little girl.

Well you know that I'm a wicked guy
And I was born with a jealous mind.
And I can't spend my whole life tryin' to make you toe the line.

You better run for your life if you can, little girl,
Hide your head in the sand, little girl,
Catch you with another man, that's the end, little girl.

Let this be a sermon, I mean ev'rything I said.
Baby, I'm determined and I'd rather see you dead.

You better run for your life if you can, little girl,
Hide your head in the sand, little girl,
Catch you with another man, that's the end, little girl.

I'd rather see you dead, little girl than to be with another man.
You'd better keep your head, little girl, or I won't know where I am.

You better run for your life if you can, little girl,
Hide your head in the sand, little girl,
Catch you with another man, that's the end, little girl.
