We Can Work It Out

Try to see it my way;
Do I have to keep on talking till I can't go on?
While you see it your way, run the risk of knowing
That our love may soon be gone.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Think of what you're saying.
You can get it wrong and still you think that it's all right.
Think of what I'm saying,
We can work it out and get it straight, or say good night.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Life is very short, and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend.
I have always thought that it's a crime,
So I will ask you once again.

Try to see it my way.
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong.
While you see it your way,
There's a chance that we might fall apart before too long.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Life is very short, and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend.
I have always thought that it's a crime,
So I will ask you once again.

Try to see it my way.
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong.
While you see it your way,
There's a chance that we might fall apart before too long.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Paperback Writer

Dear sir or madam, will you read my book?
It took me years to write. Will you take a look?

And I need a job, so I want to be a paperback writer,

And his clinging wife doesn't understand.

Rain

If the rain comes, they run and hide their heads.
They might as well be dead,
If the rain comes, if the rain comes.
When the sun shines they slip into the shade,
(When the sun shines down.)
And sip their lemonade.
(When the sun shines down.)
When the sun shines, when the sun shines.

Rain, I don't mind.
Shine, the weather's fine.

I can show you that when it starts to rain,
(When the rain comes down.)
Everything's the same.
(When the rain comes down.)
I can show you, I can show you.

Rain, I don't mind.
Shine, the weather's fine.

Can you hear me, that when it rains and shines,
(When it rains and shines.)
It's just a state of mind?
(When it rains and shines.)
Can you hear me, can you hear me?

Lady Madonna

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet.
Who finds the money when you pay the rent?
Did you think that money was heaven sent?

Friday night arrives without a suitcase,
Sunday morning creeping like a nun,
Monday's child has learned to tie his bootlace.
See how they run.

Lady Madonna, baby at your breast
Wonders how you manage to feed the rest.

See how they run.

Tuesday afternoon is never ending,
Wednesday morning papers didn't come,
Thursday night your stockings needed mending.
See how they run.

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet.

The Inner Light

Without going out of my door,
I can know all things on earth.
With out looking out of my window,
I can know the ways of heaven.

The farther one travels,
The less one knows,
The less one really knows.

Without going out of your door,
You can know all things on earth.
With out looking out of your window,
You can know the ways of heaven.

The farther one travels,
The less one knows,
The less one really knows.

Arrive without traveling.
See all without looking.
Do all without doing.

Hey Jude

Hey Jude, don't make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

Hey Jude, don't be afraid.
You were made to go out and get her.
The minute you let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better.

And anytime you feel the pain,
Hey Jude, refrain,
Don't carry the world upon your shoulder.
For, well, you know that it's a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder.
Da da da da da da da da.

Hey Jude, don't let me down.
You have found her, now go and get her.
Remember, to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin.
You're waiting for someone to perform with.
And don't you know that it's just you,
Hey Jude, you'll do.
The movement you need is on your shoulder.
Na na na na na na na na na, yeah.

Hey Jude, don't make it bad,
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better, better, better, better,
Better, better, Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah,
Na na na na na na na, na na na na, Hey Jude,

Na na na na na na na, na na na na, Hey Jude,
Na na na na na na na, na na na na, Hey Jude…

Alright.
Alright, alright,

Get Back

Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner,
But he knew it wouldn't last.
Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona
For some California grass.

Get back, get back,
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back, get back,
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Jojo. Go home.

Get back, get back,
Back to where you once belonged.
Get back, get back,
Back to where you once belonged.
Get back Jo.

Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman,
But she was another man.
All the girls around her said she's got it coming,
But she gets it while she can.

Get back, get back,
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back, get back,
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Loretta. Go home.

Ah, get back, yeah get back,
Yeah, get back to where you once belonged.
Get back, get back,
Get back to where you once belonged.

Get back, Loretta.
Your mommy's waiting for you
Wearing her high-heel shoes
And her low-neck sweater.
Get back home Loretta.
Get back, get back,
Get back to where you once belonged.
Ah, get back, get back, get back.

Don't Let Me Down

Don't let me down,
Don't let me down.
Don't let me down,
Don't let me down.

Nobody ever loved me like she does,
Ooh, she does, yes, she does.
And if somebody loved me like she do me,
Ooh, she do me, yes, she does.

Don't let me down,
Don't let me down.
Don't let me down,
Don't let me down. Don't you know it's gonna last?
It's a love that lasts forever,
It's a love that has no past.

Don't let me down,
Don't let me down.
Don't let me down,
Don't let me down.

And from the first time that she really done me,
Ooh, she done me, she done me good.
I guess nobody ever really done me,
Ooh, she done me, she done me good.

Don't let me down,
Don't let me down.
Don't let me down,
Don't let me down.
Don't let me down,
Don't let me down.

The Ballad Of John And Yoko

Standing in the dock at Southampton,
Trying to get to Holland or France.
The man in the mac said, "You've got to go back."
You know they didn't even give us a chance.

Christ, you know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going,
They're going to crucify me.

Finally made the plane into Paris,
Honeymooning down by the Seine.
Peter Brown called to say, "You can make it O.K.,
You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain."

Christ, you know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going,
They're going to crucify me.

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton,
Talking in our beds for a week.
The newspapers said, "Say, what're you doing in bed?"
I said, "We're only trying to get us some peace."

Christ, you know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going,
They're going to crucify me.

Saving up your money for a rainy day,
Giving all your clothes to charity.
Last night the wife said, "Oh boy, when you're dead,
You don't take nothing with you but your soul- Think!"

Made a lightning trip to Vienna,
Eating chocolate cake in a bag.
The newspapers said, "She's gone to his head.
They look just like two gurus in drag."

Christ, you know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going,
They're going to crucify me.

Caught the early plane back to London,
Fifty acorns tied in a sack.
The men from the press said, "We wish you success;
It's good to have the both of you back."
Christ, you know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way things are going,
They're going to crucify me.
The way things are going,
They're going to crucify me.

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 stepping out this old brown shoe,
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.

You know you pick me up
From where some try to drag me down.
And when I see your smile
Replacing every thoughtless frown,
Got me escaping from this zoo,
Baby, I'm in love with you.
So glad you came here,
It won't be the same now when I'm with you.

If I grow up I'll be a singer,
Wearing rings on every finger,
Not worrying what they or you say.
I'll live and love and maybe someday,
Who knows, baby, you may comfort me.

I may appear to be imperfect,
My love is something you can't reject.
Changing faster than the weather,
If you and me should get together,
Who knows, baby, you may comfort me.

That love of yours, to miss that love
Is something I hate.
I'll make an early start,
I'm making sure that I'm not late.
For your sweet top 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 when I'm with you.
I'm so glad you came here,
It won't be the same now when I'm with you.

Across The Universe

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe.
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind,
Possessing and caressing me.

Jai guru deva, om.
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the universe.
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box,
They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe.

Jai guru deva, om.
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.

Sounds of laughter, shades of life are ringing
Through my open ears, inciting and inviting me.
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a
Million suns, it calls me on and on
Across the universe.

Jai guru deva, om.
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.

Jai guru deva,
Jai guru deva,
Jai guru deva,
Jai guru deva,
Jai guru deva.

Let It Be

When I find myself in times of trouble,
Mother Mary comes to me,
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness,
She is standing right in front of me,
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted, there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
Yeah, there will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
Yeah, there will be an answer, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the night is cloudy,
There is still a light that shines on me.
Shine on till tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music,
Mother Mary comes to me,
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah let it be.
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be.
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.
