    Taxman

    (Harrison)  Lead vocal: Harrison
    
    
    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 per cent 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, I'll tax the street,
    If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat.
    If you get too cold I'll tax the heat,
    If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.
    
    Don't ask me what I want it for
    If you don't want to pay some more
    'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman
    
    Now my advice for those who die
    Declare the pennies on your eyes
    'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman
    And you're working for no one but me.

    Eleanor Rigby

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: McCartney
    
    
    Ah, look at all the lonely people
    Ah, look at all the lonely people
    
    Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
    Lives in a dream
    Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
    Who is it for?
    
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from ?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong ?
    
    Father McKenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
    No one comes near. 
    Look at him working. Darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there
    What does he care ?
    
    All the lonely people
    
    Where do they all come from ?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong ?
    
    Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name
    Nobody came
    Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
    No one was saved
    
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from ?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong ?

    I'm Only Sleeping

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: Lennon
    
    
    When I wake up early in the morning
    Lift my head, I'm still yawning
    When I'm in the middle of a dream
    Stay in bed, float up stream (float up stream)
    
    Please, don't wake me, no, don't shake me
    Leave me where I am - I'm only sleeping
    
    Everybody seems to think I'm lazy
    I don't mind, I think they're crazzy
    Running everywhere at such a speed
    Till they find there's no need (there's no need)
    
    Please, don't spoil my day, I'm miles away
    And after all I'm only sleeping
    
    Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
    Taking my time
    
    Lying there and staring at the ceiling
    Waiting for a sleepy feeling...
    
    (solo)
    
    Please, don't spoil my day, I'm miles away
    And after all I'm only sleeping
    
    Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
    Taking my time
    
    When I wake up early in the morning
    Lift my head, I'm still yawning
    When I'm in the middle of a dream
    Stay in bed, float up stream (float up stream)
    
    Please, don't wake me, no, don't shake me
    Leave me where I am - I'm only sleeping

    Love You To

    (Harrison)  Lead vocal: Harrison)
    
    
    Each day just goes so fast
    I turn around - it's past
    You don't time to hang a sign on me
    
    Love me while you can
    before I'm dead old man
    
    A lifetime is so short
    A new one can't be bought
    And what you've got means such a lot to me
    
    Make love all day long
    Make love singing songs
    
    There's people standing round
    Who screw you in the ground
    They'll fill your head with all the things you see
    
    I'll make love to you
    If you want me too

    Here, There And Everywhere

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: McCartney
    
    
    To lead a better life I need my love to be here...
    
    Here, making each day of the year
    Changing my life with the wave of her hand
    Nobody can deny that there's something there
    
    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 everywhere and if she's beside me 
    I know I need never care
    But to love her is to need her everywhere
    Knowing that love is to share
    
    Each one believing that love never dies
    Watching her eyes and hoping I'm always there
    
    I want her everywhere and if she's beside me 
    I know I need never care
    But to love her is to need her everywhere
    Knowing that love is to share
    
    Each one believing that love never dies
    Watching her eyes and hoping I'm always there
    
    I will be there and everywhere
    Here, there and everywhere

    Yellow Submarine

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: Starr
    
    
    In the town where I was born
    Lived a man who sailed to sea
    And he told us of his life
    In the land of submarines
    
    So we sailed up to the sun
    Till we found the sea of green
    And we lived beneath the waves
    In our yellow submarine
    
    [Ref :] We all live in our yellow submarine, 
    Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
    We all live in our yellow submarine, 
    Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
    
    And our friends are all on board
    Many more of them live next door
    And the band begins to play
    
    Ref.
    
    As we live a life of ease
    Everyone of us has all we need
    Sky of blue and sea of green
    In our yellow submarine.
    
    2 x ref.

    She Said She Said

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: Lennon
    
    
    She said I know what it's like to be dead
    I know what it is to be sad
    And she's making me feel like I've never been born.
    
    I said "Who put all those things in your hair
    Things that ake me feel that I'm mad
    And you're making me feel like I've never been born."
    
    She said "you don't understand what I said"
    I said "No, no, no, you're wrong"
    When I was a boy everything was right
    Everything was right
    
    I said "Even though you know what you know
    I know that I'm ready to leave
    'Cause you're making me feel like I've never been born."
    
    She said "you don't understand what I said"
    I said "No, no, no, you're wrong"
    When I was a boy everything was right
    Everything was right
    
    I said "Even though you know what you know
    I know that I'm ready to leave
    'Cause you're making me feel like I've never been born."
    
    She said I know what it's like to be dead
    I know what it is to be sad...

    Good Day Sunshine

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: McCartney
    
    
    Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine
    
    I need to laugh and when the sun is out
    
    I've got something I can laugh about
    I feel good i a special way
    I'm in love and it's a sunny day
    
    Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine
    
    
    We take a walk, the sun is shining down
    Burns my feet as they touch the ground
    
    Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine
    
    Then we'd lie beneath the shady tree
    I love her and she's loving me
    She feels good, she knows she's looking fine
    I'm so proud to know that she is mine.
    
    Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine

    And Your Bird Can Sing

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: McCartney
    
    
    You tell me that you've got everything you want
    And your bird can sing
    But you don't get me, you don't get me
    
    You say you've seen seven wonders and your bird is green
    But you can't see me, you can't see me
    
    When your prized possessions start to wear you down
    Look in my direction, I'll be round, I'll be round
    
    When your bird is broken will it bring you down
    you may be awoken, I'll be round, I'll be round
    
    
    You tell me that you've heard every sound there is
    And your bird can swim
    But you can't hear me, you can't hear me

    For No One

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: McCartney
    
    
    Your day breaks, your mind aches
    You find that all the words of kindness linger on 
    When she no longer needs you
    
    She wakes up, she makes up
    She takes her time and doesn't feel she has to hurry
    She no longer needs you
    
    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!
    
    
    You want her, you need her
    And yet you don't believe her when she said her love is dead
    You think she needs you
    
    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!
    
    You stay home, she goes out
    She says that long ago she knew someone but now he's gone
    She doesn't need him
    
    Your day breaks, your mind aches
    There will be time when all the things she said will fil 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!

    Doctor Robert

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: Lennon
    
    
    Ring my friend, I said you call Doctor Robert
    Day or night he'll be there any time at all, Doctor Robert
    Doctor Robert, you're a new and better man,
    He helps you to understand
    He does everything he can, Doctor Robert
    
    If you're down he'll pick you up, Doctor Robert
    Take a drink from his special cup, Doctor Robert
    Doctor Robert, he's a man you must believe,
    Helping everyone in need
    No one can succeed like Doctor Robert
    
    Well, well, well, you're feeling fine
    Well, well, well, he'll make you ... Doctor Robert
    
    My friend works for the national health, Doctor Robert
    
    Don't pay money just to see yourself with Doctor Robert
    Doctor Robert, you're a new and better man,
    He helps you to understand
    He does everything he can, Doctor Robert
    
    Well, well, well, you're feeling fine
    Well, well, well, he'll make you ... Doctor Robert

    I Want To Tell You

    (Harrison)  Lead vocal: Harrison
    
     
    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's only me, it's not my mind
    That is confusing things.
    
    I want to tell you
    I feel hung up but I don't know why,
    I don't mind
    I could wait forever, 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 but 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

    Got To Get You Into My Life

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: McCartney
    
    
    I was alone, I took a ride, 
    I didn't know what I would find there
    Another road where maybe I could see another kind of mind there
    
    Ooh, then I suddenly see you,
    Ooh, did I tell you I need you 
    Every single day of my life
    
    You didn't run, you didn't lie
    You knew I wanted just to hold you
    And had you gone you knew in time we'd meet again
    For I had told you
    
    Ooh, you were meant to be near me
    Ooh, and I want you hear me
    Say we'll be together every day
    
    Got to get you into my life
    
    What can I do, what can I be, 
    When I'm with you I want to stay there
    If I'm true I'll never leave 
    And if I do I know the way there
    
    Ooh, then I suddenly see you,
    Ooh, did I tell you I need you 
    Every single day of my life
    
    Got to get you into my life
    Got to get you into my life
    
    I was alone, I took a ride, 
    I didn't know what I would find there
    Another road where maybe I could see another kind of mind there
    
    Then suddenly I see you,
    Did I tell you I need you...

    Tomorrow Never Knows

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: Lennon
    
    
    Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream,
    It is not dying, it is not dying
    
    Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void,
    It is shining, it is shining.
    
    Yet you may see the meaning of within
    It is being, it is being
    
    Love is all and love is everyone
    It is knowing, it is knowing
    
    And ignorance and hate mourn the dead
    It is believing, it is believing
    
    But listen to the colour of your dreams
    It is not leaving, it is not leaving
    
    So play the game "Existence" to the end
    Of the beginning, of the beginning
