#1. You say you got a real solution
Well you know
We'd all love to see the plan

Revolution 1:

ou say you want a revolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it’s evolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don’t you know you can count me out in
Don’t you know it’s gonna be alright
Don’t you know it’s gonna be alright
Don’t you know it’s gonna be alright

You say you got a real solution
Well you know
We’d all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well you know
We’re doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait
Don’t you know it’s gonna be alright
Don’t you know it’s gonna be alright
Don’t you know it’s gonna be alright

#2. Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head...

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds:

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
Aaaaahhhhh…

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow 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…

#3. But now she says she knows
You're not the hurting kind

She Loves You:

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
Well, 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

She said you hurt her so
She almost lost her mind
But 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

#4. And our friends are all on board, many more of them live next door
And the band begins to play

Yellow Submarine:

In the town where I was born
Lived a man who sailed to sea
And he told us of his life
In the land of submarines

So we sailed up to the sun
‘Til we found the sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves
In our yellow submarine

We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

And our friends are all aboard
Many more of them live next door
And the band begins to play

We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

#5. Who knows how long I've loved you
You know I love you still...

I Will:

Who knows how long I’ve loved you
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime
If you want me to, I will

For if I ever saw you
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
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the things you do endear you to me
Oh, you know I will
I will

#6. Do I have to keep on talking till I can't go on?

We Can Work It Out:

Try to see it my way
Do I have to keep on talking till I can’t go on?
While you see it your way
Run the risk of knowing that our love may soon be gone

We can work it out
We can work it out

Think of what you’re saying
You can get it wrong and still you think that it’s alright
Think of what I’m saying
We can work it out and get it straight, or say goodnight

We can work it out
We can work it out

#7. It's the dirty story of a dirty man
And his clinging wife doesn't understand...

Paperback Writer:

Paperback writer

Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?
It took me years to write, will you take a look?
It’s based on a novel by a man named Lear
And I need a job, so I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

It’s the dirty story of a dirty man
And his clinging wife doesn’t understand
His son is working for the Daily Mail
It’s a steady job but he wants to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

Paperback writer

It’s a thousand pages, give or take a few
I’ll be writing more in a week or two
I can make it longer if you like the style
I can change it round and I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer

#8. I don't wanna sound complaining
But you know there's always rain in my heart

Please Please Me:

Last night I said these words to my girl
I know you never even try, girl
C’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon)
Please please me, oh yeah, like I please you

You don’t need me to show the way, love
Why do I always have to say love
C’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon)
Please please me, oh yeah, like I please you

I don’t wanna sound complaining
But you know there’s always rain in my heart (In my heart)
I do all the pleasing with you, it’s so hard to reason
With you, oh yeah, why do you make me blue.

#9. Friday night arrives without a suitcase
Sunday morning creeping like a nun...

Lady Madonna:

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet
Who finds the money when you pay the rent
Did you think that money was Heaven sent?
Friday night arrives without a suitcase
Sunday morning creeping like a nun
Monday’s child has learned to tie his bootlace
See how they run

Lady Madonna, baby at your breast
Wonders how you manage to feed the rest?

See how they run

Lady Madonna lying on the bed
Listen to the music playing in your head

Tuesday afternoon is never ending
Wednesday morning papers didn’t come
Thursday night your stockings needed mending
See how they run

#10. For well you know that it's a fool
Who plays it cool

Hey Jude:

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

Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah nah

Beatles Lyrics Trivia Quiz

Which Beatles song contains these lyrics? Can you name the song based on just a line or two from the lyrics?

This Beatles song trivia is a quiz for true Beatles fans with songs spanning from the early hits in 1962 to their last recordings in the late sixties.

Beatles’ early songs were common stories of young love and broken hearts. As they matured, the stories became more creative and more about everyday life, often inspired by events or things the saw around them, like newspaper articles (“A Day in the Life”), posters (“Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!”), and even a box of candy (“Savoy Truffle”).

Lyrics also became slightly darker. Lennon explored the human psyche and showed a growing interest in politics. References to their past frequently found their way into the songs.

But the late sixties flower power era was also present in many of the lyrics, perhaps most evident in “All You Need Is Love”.

By the end of the Beatles story, John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote songs entirely on their own. The joint collaboration that combined Johns self-observing song ideas with Paul’s easygoing storytelling faded away and some of the magic was gone.
