187. the COMPLETE BEATLES LYRICS.
the Beatles 1982
A treasure to keep bought from our library's used bookstore for a dollar, this awesome book has all the lyrics of 181 songs the Beatles created. I am a huge fan and love that I can now sing all their songs to my heart's content. The songs are presented in the order of their release from 1962 to 1977. If you love the Beatles and love to sing, this book will bring you joy. My favorite quotes are from my favorite songs.
From Me To You (p.25)
If there's anything that you want,
If there's anything I can do,
Just call on me and I'll send it along,
With love from me to you.
Do You Want To Know A Secret? (p.30)
Listen, do you want to know a secret,
Do you promise not to tell, Whoa .....
Closer let me whisper in your ear,
Say the words you long to hear,
I'm in love with you, oo .....
All My Loving (p.40)
Close you eyes, and I'll kiss you, Tomorrow I'll miss you,
Remember I'll always be true, And then while I'm away,
I'll write home every day, And I'll send all my loving to you.
If I Fell (p.52)
If I fell in love with you would you promise to be true, And help me understand?
'Cos I've been in love before, and I found that love was more, Than just holding hands.
If I give my heart to you, I must be sure from the very start,
That you would love me more than her.
And I Love Her (p.54)
I give her all my love, That's all I do,
And if you saw my love, You'd love her too. I love her.
She gives me ev'rything, And tenderly, The kiss my lover brings,
She brings to me, And I love her.
Ticket To Ride (p.73)
I think I'm gonna be sad, I think it's today, yeh,
The girl that's driving me mad, Is going away. She's got a ticket to ride,
She's got a ticket to ri-hi-hide, She's got a ticket to ride, but she don't care.
Help (p. 76)
When I was younger, so much younger than today, I never needed anybody's help in any way,
But now these days are gone I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind I've opened up the doors.
Help me if you can, I'm feeling down, And I do appreciate you being around,
Help me get my feet back on the ground, Won't you please please help me?
Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away, Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh I believe in yesterday.
Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be, There's a shadow hanging over me,
Oh yesterday came suddenly.....
Michelle ma belle These are words that go together well, My Michelle
Michelle ma belle, Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble, Tres bien ensemble
I love you, I love you, I love you, That's all I want to say,
Until I find a way, I will say the only words I know you'll understand.
Is there anybody going to listen to my story, All about the girl came to stay?
She's the kind of girl you want so much it makes you sorry,
Still you don't regret a single day. Ah girl, girl.
In My Life (p.99)
But of all these friends and lovers, There is no one compared with you,
And these memories lose their meaning, When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection, For people and things that went before,
I know I'll often stop and think about them, In my life, I'll love you more.
We Can Work It Out (p. 105)
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.
Here There And Everywhere (p.113)
There, running my hands through her hair, Both of us thinking how good it can be.
Someone is speaking but she doesn't know he's there.
I want her ev'rywhere, and if she's beside me I know I need never care,
But to love her is to meet her ev'rywere
For No One (p.118)
Your day breaks, your mind aches,
There will be times when all the things she said will fill your head, You won't forget her.
And in her eyes you see nothing, No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years.
With A Little Love From My Friends (p. 128)
What would you do if I sang out of tune, Would you stand up and walk out on me.
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song, And I'll try not to sing out of key.
I get by with a little help from my friends, I get high with a little help from my friends,
I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends.
When I'm Sixty Four (p.135)
Send me a postcard, drop me a line, Stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say, Yours sincerely, wasting away
Give me your answer, fill in a form, Mine for evermore
Will you still need me, will you still feed me, When I'm sixty-four.
The Fool On The Hill (p.147)
Day after day, alone on a hill, The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him, They can see that he's just a fool
And he never gives an answer. But the fool on the hill sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head see the world spinning around.
Hey Jude (p.152)
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.
I Will (p.170)
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.
Here Comes The Sun (p.200)
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, And I say it's all right.
Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter,
Little darling it feels like years since it's been here.
Her comes the sun, here comes the sun, And I say it's all right.
Let It Be (p.211)
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.
The Long And Winding Road (p.221)
Many times I've been alone and many times I've cried,
Anyways you'll never know the many ways I've tried, but
Still they lead me back to the long winding road,
You left me standing here a long, long time ago
Don't leave me waiting here, lead me to your door.
