Yesterday (mp3)

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 to 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. 

Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm. 

Hey Jude (mp3)

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 anytime 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, hey Jude... 

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, hey Jude... 

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 better better better, oh. 

Da da da da da da, da da da, hey Jude... 

Let It Be (mp3)

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.
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 on 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. 

Help! (mp3)

Help, I need somebody, 
Help, not just anybody, 
Help, you know I need someone, help. 

When I was younger, so much younger than today, 
I never needed anybody's help in any way. 
But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured, 
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors. 

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down 
And I do appreciate you being round. 
Help me, get my feet back on the ground, 
Won't you please, please help me. 

And now my life has changed in oh so many ways, 
My independence seems to vanish in the haze. 
But every now and then I feel so insecure, 
I know that I just need you like I've never done before. 

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down 
And I do appreciate you being round. 
Help me, get my feet back on the ground, 
Won't you please, please help me. 

When I was younger, so much younger than today, 
I never needed anybody's help in any way. 
But now these daya are gone, I'm not so self assured, 
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors. 

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down 
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground, 
Won't you please, please help me, help me, help me, oh. 

A Hard Day's Night (mp3)

It's been a hard day's night, and I been working like a dog 
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log 
But when I get home to you I'll find the things that you do 
Will make me feel alright 

You know I work all day to get you money to buy you things 
And it's worth it just to hear you say you're going to give me everything 
So why on earth should I moan, 'cause when I get you alone 
You know I feel ok 

When I'm home everything seems to be right 
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight 

Owww! 

So why on earth should I moan, 'cause when I get you alone 
You know I feel ok 
You know I feel alright 
You know I feel alright 

Love Me Do (mp3)

Love, love me do.

Please Please Me (mp3)

Last night I said these words to my girl, 
I know you never even try, girl, 
Come on, come on, come on, come on 
Come on, come on, come on, come on 
Please please me, whoa yeah, like I please you. 

You don't need me to show the way, love. 
Why do I always have to say love, 
Come on, come on, come on, come on 
Come on, come on, come on, come on 
Please please me, whoa yeah, like I please you. 

I don't wanna sound complainin', 
But you know there's always rain in my heart (in my heart). 
I do all the pleasin' with you, it's so hard to reason 
With you, whoah yeah, why do you make me blue. 

Last night I said these words to my girl, 
I know you never even try, girl, 
Come on, come on, come on, come on

She Loves You (mp3)

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah 
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah 
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah 

You think you lost your love, 
When I saw her yesterday. 
It's you she's thinking of 
And she told me what to say. 
She says she loves you 
And you know that can't be bad. 
Yes, she loves you 
And you know you should be glad. Ooh! 

She said you were to know 
That she almost lost her mind. 
And now she says she knows 
You're not the hurting kind. 
She says she loves you 
And you know that can't be bad. 
Yes, she loves you 
And you know you should be glad. Ooh! 

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah 
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah 
And with a love like that 
You know you should be glad. 

And now it's up to you, 
I think it's only fair, 
If I should hurt you, too, 
Apologize to her 
Because she loves you 
And you know that can't be bad. 
Yes, she loves you 
And you know you should be glad. Ooh! 

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah 
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah 
And with a love like that 
You know you should be glad. 

Norwegian Wood (mp3)

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? 

Michelle (mp3)

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. 

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. 


Penny Lane (mp3)

In Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs 
Of every head he's had the pleasure to know. 
And all the people that come and go 
Stop and say hello. 

On the corner is a banker with a motorcar, 
The little children laugh at him behind his back. 
And the banker never wears a mack 
In the pouring rain, very strange. 

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes. 
There beneath the blue suburban skies 
I sit, and meanwhile back 

In penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass 
And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen. 
He likes to keep his fire engine clean, 
It's a clean machine. 

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes. 
A four of fish and finger pies 
In summer, meanwhile back 

Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout 
The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray 
And tho' she feels as if she's in a play 
She is anyway. 

In Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer, 
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim. 
And then the fireman rushes in 
From the pouring rain, very strange. 

Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes. 
There beneath the blue suburban skies 
I sit, and meanwhile back. 
Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes. 
There beneath the blue suburban skies, 
Penny Lane. 

All My Loving (mp3)

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 ev'ry 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 ev'ry 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. 

Something (mp3)

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 her now 

Somewhere in her smile she knows 
That I don't need no other lover 
Something in her style that shows me 

Don't want to leave her now 
You know I believe her now 

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 

Don't want to leave her now 
You know I believe her now 

The Long and Winding Road (mp3)

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

The wild and windy night 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 and winding road 
You left me standing here a long, long time ago 
Don't leave me waiting here, lead me to you door 
Da, da, da, da 

Across the Universe (mp3)

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup, 
They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe 
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind, 
Possessing and caressing me. 
Jai guru deva om 
Nothing's gonna change my world, 
Nothing's gonna change my world. 
Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes, 
They call me on and on across the universe, 
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box 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. 

Sounds of laughter shades of earth are ringing 
Through my open views 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. 

Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da (mp3)

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. 
Obladi oblada life goes on bra 
Lala how the life goes on 
Obladi Oblada life goes on bra 
Lala how the life goes on. 

Desmond takes a trolly to the jewellers store 
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. 

Happy ever after in the market place 
Molly lets the children lend a hand 
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face 
And in the evening she's a singer with the band. 

And if you want some fun-take Obladi blada. 

Can't Buy Me Love (mp3)

Can't buy me love, love 
Can't buy me love 

I'll buy you a diamond ring my friend if it makes you feel alright 
I'll get you anything my friend if it makes you feel alright 
'Cause I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love 

I'll give you all I got to give if you say you love me too 
I may not have a lot to give but what I got I'll give to you 
I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love 

Can't buy me love, everybody tells me so 
Can't buy me love, no no no, no 

Say you don't need no diamond ring and I'll be satisfied 
Tell me that you want the kind of thing that money just can't buy 
I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love 

I Want to Hold Your Hand (mp3)

Oh yeah, I'll tell you something, 
I think you'll understand. 
When I'll say that something 
I want to hold your hand, 
I want to hold your hand, 
I want to hold your hand. 

Oh please, say to me 
You'll let me be your man 
And please, say to me 
You'll let me hold your hand. 
Now let me hold your hand, 
I want to hold your hand. 

And when I touch you I feel happy inside. 
It's such a feeling that my love 
I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide. 

Yeah, you've got that something, 
I think you'll understand. 
When I'll say that something 
I want to hold your hand, 
I want to hold your hand, 
I want to hold your hand. 

And when I touch you I feel happy inside. 
It's such a feeling that my love 
I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide. 

Yeh, you've got that something, 
I think you'll understand. 
When I'll feel that something 
I want to hold your hand, 
I want to hold your hand, 
I want to hold your hand. 

Do You Want to Know a Secret? (mp3)

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, whoa oh, oh. 

Closer, 
Let me whisper in your ear, 
Say the words you long to hear, 
I'm in love with you. 

Listen, 
Do you want to know a secret, 
Do you promise not to tell, whoa oh, oh. 

Closer, 
Let me whisper in your ear, 
Say the words you long to hear, 
I'm in love with you. 

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, whoa oh, oh. 

Closer, 
Let me whisper in your ear, 
Say the words you long to hear, 
I'm in love with you. 

Imagine (mp3)

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace... 

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one 

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world... 

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one
