Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

(Lennon & McCartney)
	It was twenty years ago today, 
	Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play 
	They've been going in and out of style 
	But they're guaranteed to raise a smile. 
	So may I introduce to you 
	The act you've known for all these years, 
	Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. 

	We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, 
	We hope you will enjoy the show, 
	We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, 
	Sit back and let the evening go. 
	Sgt. Pepper's lonely, Sgt. Pepper's lonely, 
	Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. 

	It's wonderful to be here, 
	It's certainly a thrill. 
	You're such a lovely audience, 
	We'd like to take you home with us, 
	We'd love to take you home. 

	I don't really want to stop the show, 
	But I thought that you might like to know, 
	That the singer's going to sing a song, 
	And he wants you all to sing along. 
	So let me introduce to you 
	The one and only Billy Shears 
	And Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. 
	Billy Shears 

With A Little Help From My Friends

(Lennon & McCartney)
	What would you think 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. 

	What do I do when my love is away. 
	(Does it worry you to be alone) 
	How do I feel by the end of the day 
	(Are you sad because you're on your own) 

	No I get by with a little help from my friends,
	I get high with a little help from my friends, 
	Oh,I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends. 

	Do you need anybody, 
	I need somebody to love. 
	Could it be anybody 
	I want somebody to love. 

	Would you believe in a love at first sight, 
	Yes I'm certain that it happens all the time. 
	What do you see when you turn out the light, 
	I can't tell you, but I know it's mine. 

	Oh I get by with a little help from my friends,
	I get high with a little help from my friends, 
	Oh,I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends. 

	Do you need anybody, 
	I just need somebody to love, 
	Could it be anybody, 
	I want somebody to love. 

	I get by with a little help from my friends, 
	I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends,
	Oh I get high with a little help from my friends, 
	Yes I get by with a little help from my friends, 
	With a little help from my friends. 

Lucy In The Sky With Diomonds

(Lennon & McCartney)
	Picture yourself in a boat on a river, 
	With tangerine trees and marmalade skies 
	Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly, 
	A girl with kaleidoscope eyes. 
	Cellophane flowers of yellow and green, 
	Towering over your head. 
	Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes, 
	And she's gone. 

	Lucy in the sky with diamonds, 
	Lucy in the sky with diamonds,
	Lucy in the sky with diamonds.

	Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain 
	Where rocking horse people eat marshmellow pies, 
	Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers, 
	That grow so incredibly high. 
	Newspaper taxis appear on the shore, 
	Waiting to take you away. 
	Climb in the back with your head in the clouds, 
	And you're gone.
 
	Lucy in the sky with diamonds, 
	Lucy in the sky with diamonds,
	Lucy in the sky with diamonds. 

	Picture yourself on a train in a station, 
	With plasticine porters with looking glass ties, 
	Suddenly someone is there at the turnstyle, 
	The girl with the kaleidoscope eyes. 
  
	Lucy in the sky with diamonds, 
	Lucy in the sky with diamonds,
	Lucy in the sky with diamonds... 

Getting Better

(Lennon & McCartney)
	It's getting better all the time 
	I used to get mad at my school 
	The teachers who taught me weren't cool 
	You're holding me down, turning me round 
	Filling me up with your rules. 

	I've got to admit it's getting better 
	A little better all the time 
	I have to admit it's getting better 
	It's getting better since you've been mine. 

	Me used to be a angry young man 
	Me hiding my head in the sand 
	You gave me the word 
	I finally heard 
	I'm doing the best that I can. 

	I admit it's getting better 
	A little better all the time 
	I have to admit it's getting better 
	It's getting better since you've been mine. 
	Getting so much better all the time.

	I used to be cruel to my woman 
	I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved 
	Man I was mean but I'm changing my scene 
	And I'm doing the best that I can. 
	I admit it's getting better 
	A little better all the time 
	Yes I admit it's getting better 
	It's getting better since you've been mine 
	Getting so much better all the time.

	It's getting better all the time...

Fixing A Hole

(Lennon & McCartney)
	I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in 
	And stops my mind from wandering 
	Where will it go 
	I'm filling the cracks that ran through the door 
	And kept my mind from wandering 
	Where will it go 

	And it really doesn't matter if I'm wrong 
	I'm right 
	Where I belong I'm right 
	Where I belong. 

	See the people standing there who disagree and never win 
	And wonder why they don't get in my door. 
	I'm painting my room in the colourful way 
	And when my mind is wandering 
	There I will go. 

	And it really doesn't matter if 
	I'm wrong I'm right 
	Where I belong I'm right 
	Where I belong. 

	Silly people run around they worry me 
	And never ask me why they don't get past my door. 
	I'm taking the time for a number of things 
	That weren't important yesterday 
	And I still go. 
	I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in 
	And stops my mind from wandering 
	Where it will go. 

She's Leaving Home

(Lennon & McCartney)
	Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begings 
	Silently closing her bedroom door 
	Leaving the note that she hoped would say more 
	She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching her hankerchief 
	Quietly turing the backdoor key 
	Stepping outside she is free. 

	She (We gave her most of our lives) 
	is leaving (Sacraficed 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 though of ourselves) 
	Is leaving (Never a thought for 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) 

Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite

(Lennon & McCartney)
	For the benefit of Mr. Kite 
	There will be a show tonight on trampoline 
	The Hendersons will all be there 
	Late of Pablo Fanques Fair-what a scene 
	Over men and horses hoops and garters 
	Lastly through a hogshead of real fire
	In this way Mr. K. will challenge the world

	The celebrated Mr. K. 
	Performs his feat on Saturday at Bishopsgate 
	The Hendersons will dance and sing 
	As Mr. Kite flys through the ring don't be late 
	Messrs. K and H. assure the public 
	Their production will be second to none 
	And of course Henry The Horse dances the waltz 

	The band begins at ten to six 
	When Mr. K. performs his tricks without a sound 
	And Mr. H. will demonstrate 
	Ten summersets he'll undertake on solid ground 
	Having been some days in preparation 
	A splendid time is guaranteed for all 
	And tonight Mr. Kite is topping the bill. 

Within You, Wothout You

(Harrison)
	We were talking-about the space between us all 
	And the people-who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion 
	Never glimpse the truth-then it's far too late-when they pass away. 
	We were talking-about the love we all could share-when we find it 
	To try our best to hold it there-with our love 
	With our love-we could save the world-if they only knew. 
	Try to realise it's all within yourself 
	No-one else can make you change 
	And to see you're really only very small, 
	And life flows within you and without you. 
	We were talking-about the love that's gone so cold and the people, 
	Who gain the world and lose their soul- 
	They don't know-they can't see-are you one of them? 
	When you've seen beyond yourself-then you may find, peace of mind, 
	Is waiting there- 
	And the time will come when you see 
	we're all one, and life flows on within you and without you. 

When I'm Sixty Four

(Lennon & McCartney)
	When I get older losing my hair, 
	Many years from now. 
	Will you still be sending me a valentine 
	Birthday greetings bottle of wine. 
	If I'd been out till quarter to three 
	Would you lock the door, 
	Will you still need me, will you still feed me, 
	When I'm sixty-four. 

	You'll be older too, 
	And if you say the word, 
	I could stay with you. 

	I could be handy, mending a fuse 
	When your lights have gone. 
	You can knit a sweater by the fireside 
	Sunday mornings go for a ride, 
	Doing the garden, digging the weeds, 
	Who could ask for more. 
	Will you still need me, will you still feed me, 
	When I'm sixty-four. 

	Every summer we can rent a cottage, 
	In the Isle of Wight, if it's not too dear 
	We shall scrimp and save 
	Grandchildren on your knee 
	Vera, Chuck & Dave 

	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. 

Lovely Rita

(Lennon & McCartney)
	Lovely Rita meter maid. 
	Lovely Rita meter maid. 

	Lovely Rita meter maid. 
	Nothing can come between us, 
	When it gets dark I tow your heart away. 
	Standing by a parking meter, 
	When I caught a glimpse of Rita, 
	Filling in a ticket in her little white book. 

	In a cap she looked much older, 
	And the bag across her shoulder 
	Made her look a little like a military man. 
	Lovely Rita meter maid, 
	May I inquire discreetly, 
	When are you free, 
	To take some tea with me. 

	Took her out and tried to win her, 
	Had a laugh and over dinner, 
	Told her I would really like to see her again, 
	Got the bill and Rita paid it, 
	Took her home I nearly made it, 
	Sitting on the sofa with a sister or two. 
	Oh, lovely Rita meter maid, 
	Where would I be without you, 
	Give us a wink and make me think of you. 

Good Morning, Good Morning

(Lennon & McCartney)
	Nothing to do to save his life call his wife in 
	Nothing to say but what a day how's your boy been 
	Nothing to do it's up to you 
	I've got nothing to say but it's O.K. 
	Good morning, good morning, good morning... 

	Going to work don't want to go feeling low down 
	Heading for home you start to roam then you're in town 
	Everybody knows there's nothing doing 
	Everything is closed it's like a ruin 
	Everyone you see is half asleep. 
	And you're on your own you're in the street 
	Good morning, good morning, good morning... 

	After a while you start to smile now you feel cool. 
	Then you decide to take a walk by the old school. 
	Nothing has changed it's still the same 
	I've got nothing to say but it's O.K. 
	Good morning, good morning, good morning...
 
	People running round it's five o'clock. 
	Everywhere in town is getting dark. 
	Everyone you see is full of life. 
	It's time for tea and meet the wife. 

	Somebody needs to know the time, glad that I'm here. 
	Watching the skirts you start to flirt now you're in gear. 
	Go to a show you hope she goes. 
	I've got nothing to say but it's O.K. 
	Good morning, good morning, good morning...

A Day In The Life

(Lennon & McCartney)
	I read the news today oh boy 
	About a lucky man who made the grade 
	And though the news was rather sad 
	Well I just had to laugh 
	I saw the photograph. 
	He blew his mind out in a car 
	He didn't notice that the lights had changed 
	A crowd of people stood and stared 
	They'd seen his face before 
	Nobody was really sure 
	If he was from the House of Lords. 

	I saw a film today oh boy 
	The English Army had just won the war 
	A crowd of people turned away 
	but I just had to look 
	Having read the book. 
	I'd love to turn you on 

	Woke up, fell out of bed, 
	Dragged a comb across my head 
	Found my way downstairs and drank a cup, 
	And looking up I noticed I was late. 
	Found my coat and grabbed my hat 
	Made the bus in seconds flat 
	Found my way upstairs and had a smoke, 
	Somebody spoke and I went into a dream. 

	I read the news today oh boy 
	Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire 
	And though the holes were rather small 
	They had to count them all 
	Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall. 
	I'd love to turn you on
