You don't know how lucky you are boys Back in the U.S.S.R. Show me round your snow peaked mountains way down south Take me to your daddy's farm Let me hear your balalaika's ringing out Come and keep your comrade warm. I'm back in the U.S.S.R.

Glass Onion

(Lennon/McCartney) Lead vocal: Lennon 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. I told you about the fool on the hill I tell you man he 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

(Lennon/McCartney) Lead vocal: McCartney Desmond has a barrow in the market place Molly is the singer in a band Desmond says to Molly-girl I like your face And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand.

Desmond takes a trolly 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.

The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill

(Lennon/McCartney) Lead vocal: Lennon 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

(Harrison) Lead vocal: Harrison 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 alerted you. I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping While my guitar gently weeps Look at you all... Still my guitar gently weeps.

Happiness Is A Warm Gun

(Lennon/McCartney) Lead vocal: Lennon 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 multicoloured 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 Nation 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

(Lennon/McCartney) Lead vocal: McCartney Martha my dear though I spend my days in conversation Please Remember me Martha my love Don't forget me Martha my dear Hold your 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 is 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

(Lennon/McCartney) Lead vocal: Lennon 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 get.

Blackbird

(Lennon/McCartney) Lead vocal: 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

(Harrison) Lead vocal: Harrison Have you seen the little piggies 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 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 piggy lives You can see them out for dinner With their piggy wives Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon.

Rocky Raccoon

(Lennon/McCartney) Lead vocal: McCartney Now somewhere in the black mountain 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 Rocky didn't like that He said I'm gonna get that boy So one day he walked into 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 Magil and she called herself Lil 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 burst 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 it no doubt To help with good Rocky's revival.

Don't Pass Me By

(Starr) Lead vocal: Starr 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 any more. I hear the clock a'ticking On the mantel shelf 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 any more. Don't pass me by don't make me cry don't make me blue 'Cause you know darling 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 I'm sorry that I doubted you I was so unfair You were in a car crash And you lost your hair You said you would be late About an hour or two I said that's alright I'm waiting here Just waiting to hear from you.

Mother Nature's Son

(Lennon/McCartney) Lead vocal: McCartney Born a poor young country boy--Mother Nature's son All day long I'm sitting singing songs for everyone.

Savoy Truffle

(Harrison) Lead vocal: Harrison Creme tangerine and montelimat 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.

You might not feel it now But when the pain cuts through You're going to know and how The sweat is going to fill your head When it becomes too much You're going to shout aloud But you'll have to have them all pulled out After the Savoy truffle. You know that what you eat you are, But what is sweet now, turns so sour We all know Obla-Di-Bla-Da But can you show me, where you are?..

Yes you'll have to have them all pulled out After the Savoy truffle.
