    Asked a girl what she wanted to be

    But you can do something in between
    
    Baby you can drive my car

    And maybe I love you
    
    I told a girl that my prospects were good

    I got no car and it's breaking my heart
    But I've found a driver and that's a start
    
    Baby you can drive my car
    
    Yes I'm gonna be a star

    Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: Lennon
    
    
    I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me.
    She showed me her room, isn't it good, norwegian wood?
    
    She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere,
    So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair.
    
    I sat on the rug, biding my time, drinking her wine.
    We talked until two and then she said, "It's time for bed".
    
    She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh.
    I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the bath.
    
    And when I awoke I was alone, this bird had flown.
    So I lit a fire, isn't it good, norwegian wood.

    You Won't See Me

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: McCartney
    
    
    When I call you up
    Your line's engaged
    I have had enough
    So act your age
    We have lost the time
    that was so hard to find
    And I will lose my mind
    If you won't see me
    you won't see me
    
    I don't know why 
    you should want to hide
    But I can't get through
    My hands are tied
    I won't want to stay
    I don't have much to say
    But I can't turn away
    And you won't see me
    you won't see me
    
    Time after time
    You refuse to even listen
    I wouldn't mind
    If I knew what I was missing
    Though the days are few
    They're filled with tears
    And since I lost you
    It feels like years
    Yes, it seems so long
    Girl, since you've been gone
    And I just can't go on
    If you won't see me
    you won't see me
    
    Time after time
    You refuse to even listen
    I wouldn't mind
    If I knew what I was missing
    Though the days are few
    They're filled with tears
    And since I lost you
    It feels like years
    Yes, it seems so long
    Girl, since you've been gone
    And I just can't go on
    If you won't see me
    you won't see me

    Nowhere Man

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: Lennon
    
    
    He's a real nowhere man,
    Sitting in his nowhere Land,
    Making all his nowhere plans
    For nobody.
    Doesn't have a point of view,
    Knows not where he's going to,
    Isn't he a bit like you and me?
    
    Nowhere Man, please listen,
    You don't know what you're missing,
    Nowhere Man, the world is at your command.
    
    He's as blind as he can be,
    Just sees what he wants to see,
    Nowhere Man can you see me at all?
    
    Nowhere Man, don't worry,
    Take your time, don't hurry,
    Leave it all till somebody else
    Lends you a hand.
    
    Doesn't have a point of view,
    Knows not where he's going to,
    Isn't he a bit like you and me?
    
    Nowhere Man, please listen,
    You don't know what you're missing,
    Nowhere Man, the world is at your command.
    
    He's a real Nowhere Man,
    Sitting in his Nowhere Land,
    Making all his nowhere plans
    For nobody.
    Making all his nowhere plans
    For nobody.
    Making all his nowhere plans
    For nobody.

    Think For Yourself

    (Harrison)  Lead vocal: Harrison
    
    
    I've got a word or two
    To say about the things that you do
    You're telling all those lies
    About the good things that we can have
    if we close our eyes
    
    Do what you want to do
    And go where you're going to
    Think for yourself
    'cause I won't be there with you
    
    I left you far behind
    The ruins of the life that you have in mind
    And though you still can't see
    I know your mind's made up
    You're gonna cause more misery
    
    Do what you want to do
    And go where you're going to
    Think for yourself
    'cause I won't be there with you
    
    Although your mind's opaque
    Try thinking more if just for your own sake
    The future still looks good
    And you've got time to rectify
    All the things that you should
    
    Do what you want to do
    
    And go where you're going to
    Think for yourself
    'cause I won't be there with you
    
    
    Do what you want to do
    And go where you're going to
    Think for yourself
    'cause I won't be there with you
    Think for yourself
    'cause I won't be there with you

    The Word

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: Lennon
    
    
    Say the word and you'll be free
    Say the word and be like me
    Say the word I'm thinking of
    Have you heard the word is love?
    It's so fine, It's sunshine
    It's the word, love
    
    In the beginning I misunderstood
    But now I've got it, the word is good
    
    Spread the word and you'll be free
    Spread the word and be like be
    Spread the work I'm thinking of
    Have you heard the word is love?
    It's so fine, It's sunshine
    It's the word, love
    
    Everywhere I go I hear it said
    In the good and bad books that I have read
    
    Say the word and you'll be free
    Say the word and be like me
    Say the word I'm thinking of
    Have you heard the word is love?
    It's so fine, It's sunshine
    It's the word, love
    
    Now that I know what I feel must be right
    I'm here to show everybody the light
    
    Give the word a chance to say
    That the word is just the way
    It's the word I'm thinking of
    And the only word is love
    It's so fine, It's sunshine
    
    It's the word, love
    
    Say the word, love 
    Say the word, love 
    Say the word, love
    Say the word, love

    Michelle

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: McCartney
    
    
    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 that
    you'll understand.
    
    Michelle, ma belle.
    Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble,
    tres bien ensemble.
    
    
    I need to, I need to, I need to
    I need to make you see,
    oh, what you mean to me.
    Until I do I'm hoping you will
    know what I mean.
    
    I love you.
    
    I want you, I want you, I want you.
    I think you know by now
    I'll get to you somehow.
    Until I do I'm telling you so
    you'll understand.
    
    Michelle, ma belle.
    Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble,
    tres bien ensemble.
    
    I will say the only words I know 
    that you'll understand, my Michelle.

    What Goes On

    (Lennon/McCartney/Starr)  Lead vocal: Starr
    
    
    What goes on in your heart?
    What goes on in your mind?
    You are tearing me apart
    When you treat me so unkind
    What goes on in your mind?
    
    The other day I saw you
    As I walked along the road
    But when I saw him with you
    I could feel my future fold
    It's so easy for a girl like you to lie
    Tell me why
    
    What goes on in your heart?
    What goes on in your mind?
    You are tearing me apart
    When you treat me so unkind
    What goes on in your mind?
    
    I met you in the morning
    waiting for the tides of time
    But now the tide is turning
    I can see that I was blind
    It's so easy for a girl like you to lie
    Tell me why
    
    What goes on in your heart?
    
    I used to think of no one else
    But you were just the same
    You didn't even think of me
    As someone with a name
    Did you mean to break my heart and watch me die
    Tell me why
    
    What goes on in your heart?
    What goes on in your mind?
    You are tearing me apart
    When you treat me so unkind
    What goes on in your mind?

    Girl

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: Lennon
    
    
    
    Is there anybody going to listen to my story
    All about the girl who 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!
    
    When I think of all the times I've tried to leave her
    She will turn to me and start to cry;
    And she promises the earth to me
    And I believe her.
    After all this times I don't know why.
    Ah, girl! Girl!
    
    She's the kind of girl who puts you down
    When friends are there, you feel a fool.
    When you say she's looking good
    She acts as if it's understood.
    She's cool, cool, cool, cool,
    Girl! Girl! 
    
    Was she told when she was young the fame
    Would lead to pleasure?
    Did she understand it when they said
    That a man must break his back to earn
    His day of leisure?
    Will she still believe it when he's dead?
    Ah girl! Girl! Girl!
    
    Ah girl! Girl! Girl!

    I'm Looking Through You

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: McCartney
    
    
    I'm looking through you, where did you go                   
    I thought I knew you, what did I know
    You don't look different, but you have changed
    I'm looking through you, you're not the same
    
    Your lips are moving, I cannot hear
    Your voice is soothing, but the words aren't clear
    You don't sound different, I've learned the game.
    I'm looking through you, you're not the same
    
    Why, tell me why, did you not treat me right?
    Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight
    
    You're thinking of me, the same old way
    You were above me, but not today
    The only difference is you're down there
    I'm looking through you, and you're nowhere
    
    Why, tell me why, did you not treat me right?
    Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight
    
    I'm looking through you, where did you go                   
    I thought I knew you, what did I know
    You don't look different, but you have changed
    I'm looking through you, you're not the same

    In My Life

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: Lennon
    
    
    There are places I remember
    All my life though some have changed
    Some forever not for better
    Some have gone and some remain
    All these places have their moments
    With lovers and friends I still can recall
    Some are dead and some are living
    In my life I've loved them all
    
    But of all these friends and lovers
    There is no one compares 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 love you more
    
    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 love you more
    In my life I love you more

    Wait

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocals: Lennon and McCartney
    
    
    It's been a long time
    Now I'm coming back home
    I've been away now
    Oh how I've been alone
    
    Wait till I come back to your side
    We'll forget the tears we've cried
    
    But if your heart breaks
    Don't wait, turn me away
    And if your heart's strong
    Hold on, I won't delay
    
    Wait till I come back to your side
    We'll forget the tears we've cried
    
    I feel as though
    You ought to know
    That I've been good
    As good as I can be
    And if you do
    I'll trust in you
    And know that you
    Will wait for me
    
    It's been a long time
    Now I'm coming back home
    I've been away now
    Oh how I've been alone
    Wait till I come back to your side
    We'll forget the tears we've cried
    
    I feel as though
    You ought to know
    That I've been good
    As good as I can be
    And if you do
    I'll trust in you
    And know that you
    Will wait for me
    
    But if your heart breaks
    Don't wait, turn me away
    And if your heart's strong
    Hold on, I won't delay
    Wait till I come back to your side
    We'll forget the tears we've cried
    
    It's been a long time
    Now I'm coming back home
    I've been away now
    Oh how I've been alone

    If I Needed Someone

    (Harrison)  Lead vocal: Harrison
    
    
    
    If I needed someone to love
    You're the one that I'd be thinking of
    If I needed someone
    
    If I had some more time to spend
    Then I guess I'd be with you my friend
    
    If I needed someone
    
    Had you come some other day 
    Then it might not have been like this
    But you see now I'm too much in love
    
    Carve your number on my wall
    And maybe you will get a call from me
    If I needed someone
    Ah, ah, ah, ah
    
    If I had some more time to spend
    Then I guess I'd be with you my friend
    If I needed someone
    
    Had you come some other day 
    Then it might not have been like this
    But you see now I'm too much in love
    
    Carve your number on my wall
    And maybe you will get a call from me
    If I needed someone
    Ah, ah

    Run For Your Life

    (Lennon/McCartney)  Lead vocal: Lennon
    
    
    Well I'd rather see you dead, little girl
    than to be with another man
    You better keep your head, little girl
    or I won't know where I am
    
    You better run for your life if you can, little girl
    Hide your head in the sand little girl
    Catch you with another man 
    That's the end'a little girl
    
    Well I know that I'm a wicked guy
    And I was born with a jealous mind
    And I can't spend my whole life
    trying just to make you toe the line
    
    You better run for your life if you can, little girl
    Hide your head in the sand little girl
    Catch you with another man 
    That's the end'a little girl
    
    Let this be a sermon
    I mean everything I've said
    Baby, I'm determined
    And I'd rather see you dead
    
    You better run for your life if you can, little girl
    Hide your head in the sand little girl
    Catch you with another man
    That's the end'a little girl
    
    I'd rather see you dead, little girl
    than to be with another man
    You better keep your head, little girl
    or you won't know where I am
    
    You better run for your life if you can, little girl
    Hide your head in the sand little girl
    Catch you with another man
    That's the end'a little girl
