THE BEATLES  LYRICS

Paperback Writer

Paperback writer, paperback writer.
Dear Sir or Madam will you read my book,
It took me years to write will you take a look,
Based on a novel by a man named Lear,
And I need a job,
So I want to be a paperback writer,
Paperback writer.
It’s a dirty story of a dirty man,
And his clinging wife doesn’t understand.
His son is working for the Daily Mail,
It’s a steady job,
But he wants to be a paperback writer,
Paperback writer.
It’s a thousand pages give or take a few,
I’ll be writing more in a week or two,
I can make it longer if you like the style,
I can change it round,
And I want to be a paperback writer,
Paperback writer.
If you really like it you can have the rights,
It could make a million for you overnight,
If you must return it you can send it here,
But I need a break,
And I want to be a paperback writer,
Paperback writer.

Penny Lane

In Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs
Of every head he’s had the pleasure to know.
And all the people that come and go
Stop and say ‘Hello’.
On the corner is a banker with a motorcar,
The little children laugh at him behind his back.
And the banker never wears a mac
In the pouring rain - very strange.
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes,
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile nack
In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen.
He likes to keep his fire engine clean,
It’s a clean machine.
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes,
A four of fish and finger pies
In summer meanwhile back
Behind the shelter in the middle of the roundabout
The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray.
And though she feels as if she’s in a play
She is anyway.
In Penny Lane, the barber shaves another customer,
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
And then the fireman rushes in
From the pouring rain - very strange.
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes,
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile
Penny Lane is in my and in my eyes,
There beneath the blue suburban skies...
Penny Lane!

Please Mr. Postman

Wait, oh yes wait a minute mister postman
Wait, wait mister postman
Mister postman look and see
You got a letter in your bag for me
I been waiting such a long time
Since I heard from that girl of mine
There must be some word today
From my girlfriend so far away
Please mister postman look and see
If there's a letter, a letter for me
I been standing here waiting mister postman
So patiently
For just a card or just a letter
Saying she's returning home to me
So many days you passed me by
See the tear standing in my eye
You didn't stop to make me feel better
By leaving me a card or a letter
You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute
You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute
You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute
You gotta check it and see, one more time for me
Wait

Deliver the letter, the sooner the better

Please Please Me

Last night I said these words to my girl
I know you never even try girl
Come on, come on, come on, come on,
Please please me oh yeah like I please you.
You don’t need me to show the way love
Why do I always have to say love
Come on, come on, come on, come on,
Please please me oh yeah like I please you.
I don’t want to sound complaining
But you know there’s always rain in my heart.
I do all the pleasing with you
It’s so hard to reason with you.
Oh yeah why do you make me blue.
Last night I said these words to my girl,
Come on, come on, come on, come on,
Please please me oh yeah like I please you - you.

Real Love

All my little plans and schemes,
lost like some forgotten dreams,
seems that all I really was doing
was waiting for you.
Just like little girls and boys,
playing with their little toys.
Seems like all they really were doing
was waiting for love.
Don't need to be alone,
no need to be alone.
It's real love, it's real.
Yes it's real love, it's real.
From this moment on I know
exactly where my life will go.
Seems that all I really was doing
was waiting for love.
Don't need to be afraid,
no need to be afraid.
It's real love, it's real.
Yes it's real love, it's real.
Thought I'd been in love before,
but in my heart, I wanted more.
Seems like all I really was doing
was waiting for you.
Don't need to be alone,
don't need to be alone.
It's real love, it's real.
It's real love, it's real.
Yes it's real love, it's real.
It's real love, it's real.
Yes it's real love, it's real.
It's real love, it's real.
Yes it's real love, it's real.
