Yesterday (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

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.

Why she had to go I don't know, she wouldn't say.
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Why she had to go I don't know, she wouldn't say.
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.


Norwegian Wood (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

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 a 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?


Do You Want To Know A Secret ? (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

You'll never know how much I really love you
You'll never know how much I really care

Listen, do you want to know a secret
Do you promise not to tell
Wo-oh oh oh closer
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I'm in love with you, oh oh oh oh

Listen, do you want to know a secret
Do you promise not to tell
Wo-oh oh oh closer
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I'm in love with you, oh oh oh oh

I've known the secret for a week or two
Nobody knows, just we two

Listen, do you want to know a secret
Do you promise not to tell
Wo-oh oh oh closer
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I'm in love with you, oh oh oh oh


For No One (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

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 says 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 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.


Michelle (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

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.

And I will say the only words I know
That you'll understand,
My Michelle.


Nowhere Man (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

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.


You've Got To Hide Your Love Away (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

Here I stand head in hand,
Turn my face to the wall.
If she's gone I can't go on
Feeling two foot small.

Everywhere people stare
Each and every day.
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say,

"Hey, you've got to hide your love away!
Hey, you've got to hide your love away!"

How can I even try?
I can never win,
Hearing them, seeing them
In the state I'm in.

How could she say to me,
"Love will find a way?"
Gather round all you clowns
Let me hear you say,

"Hey, you've got to hide your love away!
Hey, you've got to hide your love away!"


Across The Universe (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind,
Possessing and caressing me.

Jai Guru Deva Om,
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
That call me on and on across the universe,
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letterbox,
They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe

Jai Guru Deva Om,
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of love are ringing through my opened ears
View inciting and inviting me.
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe.

Jai Guru Deva Om,
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world
Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva
Jai Guru Deva.


All My Loving (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

Close your 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.

I'll pretend That I'm kissing
The lips I am missing
And hope that my draems will come true.
And then while I'm away,
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you.

All my loving I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true.

Close your 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.

All my loving I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true.
All my loving, all my loving, all my loving
I will send to you.


Hey Jude (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

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.

And any time you feel the pain,
Hey Jude, refrain,
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders.
For well you know that it's a fool
Who plays it cool by making his world a little colder.
Da da da da da da da da da da

Hey Jude, don't let me down,
You have found her, now go and get her.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

So let it out and let it in,
Hey Jude, begin,
You're waiting for someone to perform with,
And don't you know that it's just you,
Hey Jude, you'll do.
The movement you need is on your shoulder.
Da da da da da da da da da da

Hey Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember, to let her under your skin
Then you'll begin to make it better,
Better, better, oh yeah.
Hey Jude, Hey Jude ...


Something (Harrison) 00:00

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover,
Something in the way she woos me.
I don't want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don't need no other lover,
Something in her style that shows me
I don't want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.

You're asking me will my love grow,
I don't know, I don't know.
You stick around now it may show,
I don't know, I don't know.

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her,
Something in the things she shows me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how.


The Fool On The Hill (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

Day after day, alone on the 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 round.

Well on the way, head in a cloud,
The man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud,
But nobody ever hears him,
Or the sound he appears to make
And he never seems to notice.

But the Fool on the Hill sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head see the world spinning 'round.

And nobody seems to like him,
They can tell what he wants to do
And he never shows his feelings.

But the Fool on the Hill sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head see the world spinning 'round.

He never listens to them,
He knows that they're the fools.
They don't like him.

The fool on the Hill sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head see the world spinning 'round.


Till There was You (Williams) 00:00

There were bells on a hill
But I never heard them ringing,
No I never heard them at all
Till there was you.

There were birds in the sky
But I never saw them winging,
No I never saw them at all
Till there was you.

Then there was music
And wonderful roses they tell me,
In sweet fragrant meadows of down
And you.

There was love all around
But I never heard it singing,
No I never heard it at all
Till there was you.

Then there was music
And wonderful roses they tell me,
In sweet fragrant meadows of down
And you.

There was love all around
But I never heard it singing,
No I never heard it at all
Till there was you,
Till there was you.


The Long And Winding Road (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

The long and winding road that leads to your door,
Will never disappear I've seen that road before,
It always leads me here
Lead me to your door.

The wild and windy night that the rain washed away
Has left a pool of tears crying for the day
Why leave me standing here
Let me know the way.

Many times I've been alone
And many times I've cried
Anyway 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.

Still they lead me back to the long winding road
You left me standing here a long long time ago
Don't keep me waiting here
lead me to your door,
Yeah yeah yeah yeah.


Here Comes The Sun (Harrison) 00:00

Here comes the sun,
Here comes the sun and I say
It's alright.

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter.
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here.
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun and I say
It's alright.

Little darling, the smile's returning to their faces.
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here.
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun and I say
It's alright.

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting.
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear.
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun and I say
It's alright.

Here comes the sun,
Here comes the sun,
It's alright,
It's alright.


Blackbird (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

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.


And I Love Her (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

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 my everything
And tenderly,
The kiss my lover brings
She brings to me,
And I love her.

A love like ours could never die
As long as I have you near me.

Bright are the stars that shine,
Dark is the sky,
I know this love of mine
will never die,
And I love her.

Bright are the stars that shine,
Dark is the sky,
I know this love of mine
Will never die,
And I love her.


She's Leaving Home (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside she is free.

She (We gave her most of our lives)
Is leaving (Sacrificed most of our lives)
Home (We gave her everything money could buy)
She's leaving home after living alone
For so many years. Bye, bye.

Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown.
Picks up the letter that's lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She breaks down and cries to her husband "Daddy our baby's gone".
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly
How could she do this to me.

She (We never thought of ourselves)
Is leaving (Never a thought of ourselves)
Home (We struggled hard all our lives to get by)
She's leaving home after living alone
For so many years. Bye, bye.

Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the motor trade.

She (What did we do that was wrong)
Is having (We didn't know it was wrong)
Fun (Fun is the one thing that money can't buy)
Something inside that was always denied
For so many years. Bye, Bye
She's leaving home bye bye.


Here, There And Everywhere (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

To lead a better life,
I need my love to be here.

Here making each day of the year,
Changing my life with a 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 speking
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 meet 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 meet her everywhere,
Knowing that love is to share,
Each one believing that love never dies,
Watching her eyes
And hoping I'm always there.

To be there and everywhere,
Here, there and everywhere.


Let It Be (Lennon/McCartney) 00:00

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.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be,
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken-hearted people
Living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see,
There will be an answer, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be,
Yeah, there will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be,
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah let it be,
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me,
Shine until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me,
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah let it be,
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah let it be,
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah let it be,
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.
