	You don't know how lucky you are boy 
	Back in the U.S.S.R. 

	Been away so long I hardly knew the place 
	Gee it's good to be back home 
	Leave it till tomorrow to unpack my case 
	Honey disconnect the phone 
	I'm back in the U.S.S.R. 
	You don't know how lucky you are boy 
	Back in the U.S., back in the U.S., back in the U.S.S.R. 

	Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out 
	They leave the West behind 
	And Moscow girls make me sing and shout 
	That Georgia's always on my mind.

	And as he gives it to her she begins to sing. 

	In a couple of years they have built 
	A home sweet home

The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill

(Lennon & McCartney)
	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)
	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

	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)
	Martha my dear though I spend my days in conversation 
	Please 
	Remember me Martha my love 
	Don't forget me Martha my dear

	When you find yourself in the thick of it 
	Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you

	That you and me were meant to be for each other 
	Silly girl.

I'm So Tired

(Lennon & McCartney)
	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. 
  
	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'd give you everything I've got 
	for a little peace of mind 
	I'd give you everything I've got 
	for a little peace of mind 

Blackbird

(Lennon & 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)
	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 
	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. 

Roccy Racoon

(Lennon & 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 eye 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

(Lennon & McCartney)
	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. 

Why Don't We Do It In The Road

	I didn't catch your name 
	But it never really mattered 
	I will always feel the same. 

	Love you forever and forever 
	Love you with all my heart 
	Love you whenever we're together 
	Love you when we're apart. 

	And when at last I find you 
	Your song will fill the air

	Make it easy to be near you 
	For the things you do endear you to me 
	You know I will 
	I will.

	In the sun 

	Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me 
	So I sing a song of love, Julia 

	When I cannot sing my heart 
	I can only speak my mind, Julia

Mother Nature's Sun

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

	Sit beside a mountain stream--see her waters rise 
	Listen to the pretty sound of music as she flies. 

	Find me in my field of grass--Mother Nature's son 
	Swaying daises sing a lazy song beneath the sun. 

	Mother Nature's son.

	I feel your taste all the time we're apart 
	Coconut fudge--really blows down those blues

	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

	So cry baby cry. 

	At twelve o'clock a meeting round the table 
	For a seance in the dark 
	With voices out of nowhere 
	Put on specially by the children for a lark. 

	Cry baby cry 
	Make your mother sigh 
	She's old enough to know better 
	So cry baby cry cry cry cry baby 
	Make your mother sigh. 

	She's old enough to know better 
	Cry baby cry 
	Cry cry cry 
	Make your mother sigh 
	She's old enough to know better 
	So cry baby cry. 

Good Night

(Lennon & McCartney)
	Now it's time to say good night 
	Good night Sleep tight 
	Now the sun turns out his light 
	Good night Sleep tight 
	Dream sweet dreams for me 
	Dream sweet dreams for you. 

	Close your eyes and I'll close mine 
	Good night Sleep tight 
	Now the moon begins to shine 
	Good night Sleep tight 
	Dream sweet dreams for me 
	Dream sweet dreams for you. 

	Close your eyes and I'll close mine 
	Good night Sleep tight 
	Now the sun turns out his light 
	Good night Sleep tight 
	Dream sweet dreams for me 
	Dream sweet dreams for you. 

	Good night Good night Everybody 
	Everybody everywhere 
	Good night.
