all George Harrison lyrics



I Want to Tell You
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 all right
I'll make you maybe next time around

But if I seem to act unkind
It isn't me, it's just my mind
That is confusing things

I want to tell you
I feel hung up and I don't know why
But I don't mind
I could wait forever, I've got time, 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 and 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
I've got timeback to top
Old Brown Shoe
I want a love that's right
Right is only half of what's wrong
I want a short-haired girl
Who sometimes wears it twice as long

Now I'm steppin' out this old brown shoe
Baby I'm in love with you
So glad you came here, it won't be the same
Now I'm telling you

You know you picked me up
From where some try to drag me down
And when I see your smile
Replacing ev'ry thoughtless frown

Got me escaping from the zoo
Baby I'm in love with you
I'm so glad you came here, it won't be the same
Now I'm telling you

If I'll grow up I'll be a singer
Wear rings on ev'ry finger
Not worrying about what they or you'll say
Live and love and maybe someday, who knows baby
You may comfort me (yeah)

I may appear to be imperfect
But my love is something you can't reject
Changing faster than the weather
You and me should get together, who knows baby
You may comfort me

I want the love of yours
To miss that love is something I'd hate
I'll make an early start
I'm making sure that I'm not late

For your sweet lip I'm in the queue
Baby I'm in love with you
I'm so glad you came here, it won't be the same
Now I'm telling you

So glad you came here
It won't be the same now I'm telling you
So glad you came here
It won't be the same now when I'm with you
Oh yeah yeah

Taxman
(this one's called: taxman)
(one, two, three, four, one two)

Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, nineteen for me
'cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five percent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
'cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman

(if you drive a car car) I'll tax the street
(if you try to sit sit) I'll tax your seat
(if you get too cold cold) I'll tax the heat
(if you take a walk walk) I'll tax your feet

Taxman!

'cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman

Don't ask me what I want it for
(ah, ah, mr. major)
If you don't want to pay some more
(ah, ah, mr. [..])
'cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman

If I reduce it, can you sleep
(ah, ah, boris yeltzin)
Get back [..] v.a.t.
(ah, ah, mr. bush)
'cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman

If you get a hat hat, I'll tax your hat
If you get a cat cat, I'll tax your cat
If you wipe your feet feet, I'll tax your mat
If you walk away away, I'll tax your [..]

Now my advise to those who die

Declare the pennies on your eyes

If I Needed Someone
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
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

Something
Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me

I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Somewhere in the way she smiles
That I don't need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me

I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

You're asking me will my love grow
I don't know, I don't know
You stick around and it may show
I don't know, I don't know

Something in the way she knows
All I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me

I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

What Is Life
What I feel, I can't say
But my love is there for you anytime of day
But if it's not love that you need
Then I'll try my best to make everything succeed

Tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side

What I know, I can do
If I give my love now to everyone like you
But if it's not love that you need
Then I'll try my best to make ev'rything succeed

Tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side
Tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side

What I feel, I can't say
But my love is there for you any time of day
But if it's not love that you need
Then I'll try my best to make everything succeed

Tell me, what is my life without your love
Tell me, who am I without you, by my side
Oh tell me, what is my life without your love

Dark Horse
You thought that you knew where I was and when
But it looks like they've been foolin' you again,
You thought that you'd got me all steaked out
But baby looks like I've been breaking out

I'm a dark horse
Running on a dark race course
I'm a blue moon
Since I stepped from out of the womb
I've been a cool jerk
Looking for the source
I'm a dark horse.

You thought you had got me in your grip
Baby looks like you was not so smart
And I became too slippery for you
But let me say that was nothing new.

I'm a dark horse
Running on a dark race course
I'm a blue moon
Since I picked up my first spoon
I've been a cool jerk
Looking for the source
I'm a dark horse

I thought that you knew it all along
Until you started getting me not right
Seems as if you heared a little late
But I warned you when
We both were at the starting gate

I'm a dark horse
Running on a dark race course
I'm a blue moon
Since I stepped from out of the womb
I've been a cool jerk
Cooking at the source
I'm a dark horse.back to top
Piggies
Have you seen the little piggies
Crawling in the dirt
And for all those 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
And they always have clean shirts to play around in.

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

Yeah, everywhere there's lots of piggies
Playing piggy pranks
And you can see them on their trotters
Down at the piggy banks
Paying piggy thanks
To thee pig brother

- everybody: -
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.

Cloud 9
Bust my back on the Levy - broke my strings on the BBC
Found my chops on Eel Pie Island - paid my dues at the Marquee
Slagged off by the N.M.E. - lost my stash and my virginity
In this Cockamamie Business

Got my face on Ed Sullivan - broke my heart on the Soul Train
Introduced to Bad Company - lost cells down at Brain Drain
And before I could mend - lost the missus, missed the girlfriend
In this Cockamamie Business

Now we like to air condition - though the air has no ozone ring
Still they're chopping down the forest for McDonalds and the Burger King
Eating cows with such persistance - doesn't offer much resistance
To this Cockamamie Business

There are too many things - stressing out the nervous system
Girls you used to know - fellas that may have kissed'em
Some got rabies - Some got fleas - some got incurable diseases
From this Cockamamie Business

Everybody's after as many points as they can get
As long as it's not them that has to pay
No one really minds the Debt
5-Star actors, tax inspectors, film producers and directors
With their Cockamamie Business

Well you do what you can - can't do much more than that
(No you can't do what he just said)
Some days you're pretty sharp - on other days you feel half dead
(While you make your daily bread)
Didn't want to be a star - wanted just to play guitar

Here comes the sun (du dn du du)

All Those Years Ago
I'm shouting all about love
While they treated you like a dog
When you were the one who had made it
so clear
All those years ago.

I'm talking all about how to give
They don't act with much honesty
But you point the way to the truth when you say
All you need is love.

Living with good and bad
I always look up to you
Now we're left cold and sad
By someone the devil's best friend
Someone who offended all.

We're living in a bad dream
They've forgotten all about mankind
And you were the one they backed up to
the wall
All those years ago
You were the one who Imagined it all
All those years ago.

Deep in the darkest night
I send out a prayer to you
Now in the world of light
Where the spirit free of the lies
And all else that we despised.

They've forgotten all about God
He's the only reason we exist
Yet you were the one that they said was
so weird
All those years ago
You said it all though not many had ears
All those years ago
You had control of our smiles and our tears
All those years agoback to top
Cheer Down
I can see by your grin
That you're trembling within
It's all over town, cheer down
And the smile on your face
Is sometimes out of place
Don't mind, no frowns, cheer down.

If your hair should fall
If your shares should crash
You'll get by even without getting a rash

There's no tears to be shed
I'm gonna love you instead
I want you around, cheer down.

When your teeth drop out
You'll get by even without taking a bite

If your dog should be dead
I'm gonna love you instead
The world loves a clown, cheer down.
I want you around, cheer downback to top
Devil's Radio
Gossip, gossip
Gossip, gossip

I heard it in the night
Words that thoughtless speak
Like vultures swooping down below
On the devil's radio

I hear it through the day
Airwaves gettin' filled
With gossip broadcast to and fro
On the devil's radio

Oh yeah, gossip
Gossip, oh yeah

He's in the clubs and bars
And never turns it down
Talking about what he don't know
On the devil's radio

He's in your TV set
Won't give it a rest
That soul betraying so and so
The devil's radio

Gossip, gossip
Gossip, gossip
(Oh yeah) gossip, (gossip) oh yeah
(Gossip) oh yeah, (oh yeah) gossip

It's white and black like industrial waste
Pollution of the highest degree
You wonder why I don't hang out much
I wonder how you can't see

He's in the films and songs
And on all your magazines
It's everywhere that you may go
The devil's radio

Oh yeah, gossip
Gossip, oh yeah

Runs thick and fast, no one really sees
Quite what bad it can do
As it shapes you into something cold
Like an Eskimo igloo

It's all across our lives
Like a weed it's spread
'till nothing else has space to grow
The devil's radio

Can creep up in the dark
Make us hide behind shades
And buzzing like a dynamo
The devil's radio

(Gossip) oh yeah, (gossip) oh yeah
(Gossip) gossip, (gossip) gossip
Oh yeah, gossip I heard you on the secret wireless
Gossip, oh yeah You know the devil's radio, child

Isn't It a Pity
Isn't it a pity
Isn't it a shame
How we break each other's hearts
And cause each other pain
How we take each other's love
Without thinking anymore
Forgetting to give back
Isn't it a pity

Some things take so long
But how do I explain
When not too many people
Can see we're all the same
And because of all their tears
Your eyes can't hope to see
The beauty that surrounds them
Now, isn't it a pity

Isn't it a pity, (oh-o)
Now, isn't is a shame
How we break each other's hearts
And cause each other pain
How we take each other's love

While My Guitar Gently Weeps
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
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
Look at you all . . .
Still my guitar gently weeps.back to top
Roll Over Beethoven
Gonna write a little letter, mail it to my local dj
It's a rockin' little record I want my jockey to play
Roll over beethoven, I hear it again today

You know my temperature's rising and the juke-box blows a fuse
My heart's beatin' rhythm and my soul is a-singing the blues
Roll over beethoven and tell tchaikowsky the news

I got a rockin' pneumonia, I need a shot of rhythm and blues
I think I got it off the writer sittin' down at the rhythm review
Roll over beethoven, we're rockin' by two by two

Well, if you feel you like it
Well get your lover and reel and rock it
Roll it over and move on up just
A little bit further and reel and rock it, roll it over
Roll over beethoven, and dig these rhythm and blues

Early in the morning I'm a-givin' you the warnin'
Don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Hey little little gonna play my fiddle, ain't got nothin' to lose
Roll over beethoven and tell tchaikowsky the news

You know she winks like a glow worm and dance like a spinnin' top
She's got a crazy partner, oughta see 'em reel and rock
Long as she's got a dime, the music will never stop

Roll over beethoven, roll over beethoven
Roll over beethoven, roll over beethoven
Roll over beethoven, dig these rhythm and blues

(thany you, dômo arigatô
Thank you, thank you for coming to see the show
And I'd like to thank the band and eric for
Making me come here to japan, it's been very
Nice and I love you. thank you)back to top
