Back In The Ussr
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

Fiew in from Miami
Beach B.O.A.C.
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 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 balaliakas 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.back to top

Glass Onion
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

I told you 'bout Strawberry Fields,
You know the place where nothing is real,
Well, here's another place you can go,
Where ev'rything flows,
Looking through the bent backed tulips
To see how the other half live,
Looking through the 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 ahore,yeah.
Lady Madonna tryin' to make ends meet, yeah,
Looking through the glass onion.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.
Looking through the 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.back to top
Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

Desmond has a barrow in the market place.
Molly is a singer in a band.
Desmond says to Molly girl I like your face
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand.

Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.
Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala 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.

Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.
Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala 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.

Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.
Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala 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.

Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.
Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.

And if you want some fun -
Take obladi oblada.back to top

The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

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 mother 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?back to top
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
( G. Harrison )

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 untold 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.back to top
Happiness Is The Warm Gun
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

She's not a girl who misses much.
Do 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 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,
Happiness is a warm gun.back to top

In coversation please remember me,

Look what you've done.
When you find yourself in the thick of it,

I'm So Tired
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

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 ev'rything I've got
For a little peace of mind.

Oooh, I'm so tired,

I can't stop my brain,
You know it's three weeks,
I'm going insane,
You know I'd give you ev'rything I've got

Blackbird

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.

Piggies
( George Harrison )

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

Ev'rywhere 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 baconback to top
Rocky Raccoon
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota
There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon-a
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-a

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 ev'ryone 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

D'do, do, do...

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 in no doubt
To help with good Rocky's revival, ah

Yeh, yeh! D'do, do, do (c'mon Rocky boy)

That's the story of Rocky Raccoonback to top
Don't Pass Me By
( Richard Starkey )

I listen for your footsteps, coming up the drive
Listen for your footsteps, but they don't arrive
I 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 far a ticking on the mantel shelf
See the hands 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 how 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 hear
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 how I hate to see you go

Savoy Truffle
( George Harrison )

Creme tangerine and montelimat
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 you 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 montelimat
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

Cry Baby Cry
( J. Lennon, P. McCartney )

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.back to top

Good Night

Now it's time to say good night,
Good night, sleep tight.
Now the sun turns out his light,
Good night, sleep tight.

Dream sweet dreams for me,
Dream sweet dreams for you.
Close your eyes and I'll close mine,
Good night, sleep tight.

Now the moon begins to shine,
Good night, sleep tight.

Dream sweet dreams for me,
Dream sweet dreams for you,
Dream sweet dreams for me,
Dream sweet dreams for you.
Close your eyes and I'll close mine,
Good night, sleep tight.

Now the sun turns out his light,
Good night, sleep tight.

Dream sweet dreams for me,
Dream sweet dreams for you.
