I like his older goodies . Your Song is one of the first songs he wrote with Bernie Taupin. Bernie Taupin says ” It may have the most naive and childish lyrics but they were real at the time”
It’s a little bit funny this feeling inside I’m not one of those who can easily hide. I don’t have much money but boy if I did ….I’d buy a big house where we both could live …..my gift is my song , this one’s for you and you can tell everybody this is your song …
What do I gotta do to make you love me , what have I gotta do to make you care. What do I do when lightening strikes me ….
Candle in the wind
Don’t let the sun go down on me
I think the Beatles Let It Be are some of the best lyrics thanks to Paul McCartney. He wrote this song inspired by his mother, Mary, who died when he was 14. Like many , I’m sure , I thought “Mother Mary” was a biblical reference .
You say you want a Revolution as you can guess was written by John Lennon in response to the vietnam war . The beatles’ first political song
With A Little Help From My Friends was written by John and Paul . I never thought or knew that ‘Friends’ was referred to being ‘Drugs’ but of course I was a little girl at that time and my sister used to play this song on the guitar .
Come Together right now ….over me (shoot) <—-… The whispered lyric is actually Lennon saying “shoot me” followed by a handclap. The bass line drowns out the “me.”
