Back in the USSR

Flew in from Miami Beach BOAC.
Didn’t get to bed last night.
On the way the paper bag was on my knee.
Man I had I dreadful flight.
I’m back in the USSR.
You don’t know how lucky you 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 till 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 US. Back in the US. 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 mind.
I’m back in the USSR.
You don’t know how lucky you are boys
Back in the USSR.
Show me round your snow peaked mountains way down south
Take me to your daddy’s farm
Let me hear your balalaikas ringing out
Come and keep your comrade warm.
I’m back in the USSR.
You don’t know how lucky you boys
Back in the USSR.

Dear Prudence

Dear Prudence, won’t you come out to play.
Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day.
The sun is up, the sky is blue.
It’s beautiful and so are you.
Dear Prudence won’t you come out to play?
Dear Prudence open up your eyes.
Dear Prudence see the sunny skies.
The wind is low the birds will sing
That you are part of everything.
Dear Prudence won’t you open up your eyes?
Look around round
Look around round round
Look around.
Dear Prudence let me see you smile.
Dear Prudence like a little child.
The clouds will be a daisy chain.
So let me see you smile again.
Dear Prudence won’t you let me see you smile?

Glass Onion

I told you about strawberry fields.
You know the place where nothing is real.
Well here’s another place you can go
Where everything flows.
Looking through the bent backed tulips
To see how the other half live
Looking through a glass onion.
I told you about 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 the cast iron shore – yeah.
Lady Madonna trying to make ends meet – yeah.
Looking through a glass onion.
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah
Looking through a glass onion.
I told you about 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 dove-tail joint – yeah
Looking through a glass onion.

Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da

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.
Ob-la-di Ob-la-da life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Ob-la-di Ob-la-da life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Desmond takes a trolley to the jewellers’ stores,
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
In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
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.
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 singer with the band.
And if you want some fun – take Ob-la-di Ob-la-da.

The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill
(Lennon,McCartney)

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?
Deep in the jungle where the mighty tiger lies
Bill and his elephants were taken by surprise.
So Captain Marvel zapped in right between the eyes.
All the children sing
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?

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 altered you.
I look at you see al the love there that’s sleeping,
While my guitar gently weeps.
I then look at you all,
Still my guitar gently weeps.

Happiness is a Warm Gun

She’s not a girl who misses much.
Do do do do do do do do
She’s well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand
Like a lizard on a window pane.
The man in the crowd with the 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 uptown.
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.
Happiness is a warm gun
Happiness is a warm gun
When I hold you in my arms
And I feel my finger on your trigger
I know no one can do me no harm
Because happiness is a warm gun.
Yes it is.

Martha My Dear

Martha my dear though I spend my days
In conversation
Please
Remember me Martha my love
Don’t forget me Martha my dear
Hold you head up you silly girl look what you’ve done
When you find yourself in the thick of it
Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you
Silly girl.
Take a good look around you
Take a good look you’re bound to see
That you and me were meant to be for each other
Silly girl.
Hold your hand out you silly girl see what you’ve done
When you find yourself in the thick of it
Help yourself to a bit of what’s all around you
Silly girl.
Martha my dear you have always been
My inspiration
Please
Be good to me Martha my love
Don’t forget me Martha my dear.

I'm So Tired

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’d do.
You’d 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 everything I’ve got
For a little peace of mind.
I’m so tired, I’m feeling so upset
Although I’m so tired I’ll have another cigarette
And curse Sir Walter Raleigh.
He was such a stupid git.

Blackbird
(Lennon,McCartney)

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 the dark black night.
Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.
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
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Piggies

Have you seen the little pggies 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.
Everywhere there’s lots of piggies living piggie lives,
You can see them out for dinner with their piggie wives,
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon.

Rocky Raccoon

Now somewhere in the black moutain hills of Dakota
There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon.
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 in to town
Booked himself a room in the local saloon.
Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
Only to find Gideon’s Bible.
Rocky had come equipped with a gun
To shoot 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 everyone 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.
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.

Don't Pass Me By

I listen for your footsteps coming up the drive,
Listen for your footsteps but they don’t arrive,
Waiting for your knock dear on my old front door,
I don’t hear it,
Does it mean you don’t love me anymore?
I hear the clock a-ticking on the mantelshelf,
See the hands a-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 anymore?
Sorry that I doubted you
I was so unfair,
You were in a car crash and you lost your hair,
You said that you would be late 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 daring I love only you,
You’ll never know it hurt me so,
How I hate to see you go,
Don’t pass me by, Don’t make me cry.

Why Don't We Do It in the Road?

Why don’t we do it in the road?
No one will be watching us.
Why don’t we do it in the road?

I Will

Who knows how long I’ve loved you.
You know I love you still.
Will I wait a lonely lifetime
If you want me to – I will.
For if I ever saw you
I didn’t catch your name.
But it never really mattered
I will always feel the same.
Love you forever and forever.
Love you with all my heart.
Love you whenever we’re together.
Love you when we’re apart.
And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it so loud I can hear.
Make it easy to be near you
For the things you do endear you to me
You know I will.

Julia

Half of what I say is meaningless
But I say it just to reach you, Julia.
Julia, Julia, oceanchild, calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia
Julia, seashell eyes, windy smile, calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia.
Her hair of floating sky is shimmering,
Glimmering,
In the sun.
Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia.
When I cannot sing my heart
I can only speak my mind, Julia.
Julia, sleeping sand, silent cloud, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia.
Hum hum hum hum… calls me
So I sing a song of love for Julia, Julia, Julia.

Yer Blues

Yes I’m lonely wanna die.
If I ain’t dead already.
Ooh girl you know the reason why.
In the morning wanna die.
In the evening wanna die.
If I ain’t dead already.
Ooh girl you know the reason why.
My mother was of the sky.
My father was of the earth.
But I am of the universe
And you know what it’s worth.
I’m lonely wanna die.
If I ain’t dead already.
Ooh girl you know the reason why.
The eagle picks my eye.
The worm he licks my bone.
I feel so suicidal
Just like Dylan’s Mr. Jones,
Lonely wanna die.
If I ain’t dead already.
Ooh girl you know the reason why.
Black cloud crossed my mind.
Blue mist round my soul.
Feel so suicidal
Even hate my rock and roll.
Wanna die yeah wanna die.
If I ain’t dead already.
Ooh girl you know the reason why.

Mother Nature's Son

Born a poor young country boy –
Mother Nature’s son.
All day long I’m sitting singing songs for everyone.
Sit beside a mountain stream – see her waters rise.
Listen to the pretty sound of music as she flies.
Find me in my field of grass –
Mother Nature’s son.
Swaying daisies sing a lazy song beneath the sun.
Mother Nature’s son.

Sexy Sadie
However big you think you are
Sexy Sadie.

Helter Skelter

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again.
Do you, don’t you want me to love you.

Don’t you know that you can count me out.
Don’t you know it’s going to be alright,
Alright, alright.
You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We’d all love to see the plan.
You ask me for a contribution,
Well, you know
We’re doing what we can.
Ut if you want money for people with minds that hate,
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait.

Alright, alright.
You say you’ll change a constitution
Well, you know
We all want ot change your head.

Honey Pie

I’m in love but I’m lazy.
So won’t you please come home.
Oh honey pie my position is tragic.
Come and show me the magic of your Hollywood Song.
You became a legend of the silver screen
And now the thought of meeting you
Makes me weak in the knee.
Oh honey pie you are driving me frantic.
Sail across the Atlantic
To be where you belong.
Will the wind that blew her boat
Across the sea
Kindly send her sailing back to me.
Honey pie you are making me crazy.
I’m in love but I’m lazy.
So won’t you please come home.

Savoy Truffle

Cream tangerine and montelimar,
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 nice apple tart,
I feel your 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.
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.
Cream tangerine and montelimar,
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.
Yes you’ll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle.

Cry Baby Cry

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 Kirkcaldy always smiling
Arriving late for tea.
The duke was having problems
With a message 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 especially by the children for a lark.
Cry baby cry.
Make your mother sigh.
She’s old enough to know better.
So cry baby cry cry cry cry baby.
Make your mother sigh.
She’s old enough to know better.
Cry baby cry cry cry cry
Make your mother sigh.
She’s old enough to know better.
So cry baby cry.

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.
Dream sweet dreams for me
Dream sweet dreams for you.
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.
Good night good night everybody
Everybody everywhere.
Good night.
