LONDON - THE LOVE YOU TAKE IS EQUAL TO THE LOVE YOU MAKE  

 

On Thursday night, the first of two consecutive London TravBuddy shindigs, I wore an Abbey Road T-shirt I bought at the Beatles Store in January 2008 on the day of very first London TB meetup.  J

 

Being a die-hard Beatles fan, I’ve included lyrics of and video links to the songs from Abbey Road.

 

COME TOGETHER

(John Lennon/Paul McCartney)

www.

youtube.com/watch?v=axb2sHpGwHQ

 

Here come old flat top
He come grooving up slowly,
He got joo-joo eye-ball
He one holy roller.
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker
He just do what he please.

He wear no shoeshine
He got toe jam football
He got monkey finger
He shoot Coca-Cola.
He say, "I know you, you know me."
One thing I can tell you
Is you got to be free.
Come together, right now, over me.

He bag production
He got walrus gumboot
He got Ono side board
He one spinal cracker.
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his armchair
You can feel his disease.
Come together, right now, over me.

He roller coaster
He got early warning
He got Muddy Water
He one Mojo filter.
He say, “One and one and one is three.”
Got to be good looking
'Cause he so hard to see.
Come together, right now, over me.

 

SOMETHING

(George Harrison)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzkhOmKVW08

 

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 and how.

Something in her smile she knows
That I don't need no other lover.

Mike - our fab TB meetup organizer

Something in her style that shows me.

I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how.

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 thing she shows me.

I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how.

 

MAXWELL’S SILVER HAMMER

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIMGgBLOwfg

 

Joan was quizzical,
Studied pataphysical
Science in the home.
Late nights all alone with a test tube
Oh, oh, oh, oh.


Maxwell Edison
Majoring in medicine
Calls her on the phone.
"Can I take you out to the pictures
Jo-o-o-oan?"
But as she's getting ready to go
A knock comes on the door.

Bang! Bang!

Maxwell's silver hammer

Came down upon her head.

3rd night of 8-nation TB trek

Clang! Clang!

Maxwell's silver hammer

Made sure that she was dead.

Back in school again
Maxwell plays the fool again
Teacher gets annoyed.
Wishing to avoid
An unpleasant sce-e-e-ene.

 

She tells Max to stay
When the class has gone away
So, he waits behind.
Writing fifty times,
"I must not be so-o-o-o."
But when she turns her back on the boy
He creeps up from behind.

Bang! Bang!

Maxwell's silver hammer

Came down upon her head.
Clang! Clang!

Maxwell's silver hammer

Made sure that she was dead.

 
P.C. Thirty-One
Said, "We've caught a dirty one."
Maxwell stands alone.
Painting testimonial pictures
Oh, oh, oh, oh.


Rose and Valerie
Screaming from the gallery
Say he must go free (Maxwell must go free).
The judge does not agree
And he tells them so-o-o-o.
But as the words are leaving his lips
A noise come from behind.

Bang! Bang!

Maxwell's silver hammer

Came down upon her head.

Raymond doubles his pleasure

Clang! Clang!

Maxwell's silver hammer

Made sure that she was dead.

 

OH! DARLING

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lCqJ_-CFnk

 

Oh! Darling, please believe me,
I'll never do you no harm.
Believe me when I tell you
I'll never do you no harm.

Oh! Darling, if you leave me
I'll never make it alone.
Believe me when I beg you
Don't ever leave me alone.

When you told me you didn't need me any more
Well, you know I nearly broke down and cried.
When you told me you didn't need me any more
Well, you know I nearly broke down and died.

Oh! Darling, if you leave me
I'll never make it alone.
Believe me when I tell you
I'll never do you no harm.

When you told me you didn't need me any more
Well, you know I nearly broke down and cried.
When you told me you didn't need me any more
Well, you know I nearly broke down and died.

Oh! Darling, please believe me,
I'll never let you down.
Believe me when I tell you
I'll never do you no harm.

 

OCTOPUS’ GARDEN

(Richard Starkey)

www.

youtube.com/watch?v=cgPqmRNjoTE

 

I'd like to be under sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade.
He'd let us in, knows where we've been
In his octopus' garden in the shade.

I'd ask my friends to come and see
An octopus' garden with me.
I'd like to be under sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade.

We would be warm below the storm
In our little hideaway beneath the waves.
Resting our heads on the sea bed
In an octopus' garden near a cave.

We would sing and dance around
Because we know we can't be found.
I'd like to be under sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade.

We would shout and swim about
The coral that lies beneath the waves
Oh, what a joy for every girl and boy
Knowing they're happy and they're safe.

We would be so happy you and me
No one there to tell us what to do.
I'd like to be under sea
In an octopus' garden with you.

 

I WANT YOU (She’s So Heavy)

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

www.

youtube.com/watch?v=deSMlX4rFgo

 

I want you
I want you so bad.

I want you
I want you so bad
It's driving me mad.
It's driving me mad.

I want you
I want you so bad, babe.

I want you
I want you so bad
It's driving me mad.
It's driving me mad.

She's so heavy.

HERE COMES THE SUN

(George Harrison)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZeKIkvnAis

 

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun
And I say, "It's all right"

Little darling, it's been a long, cold lonely winter.
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here.

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun
And I say, "It's all right"
 
Little darling, the smiles returning to their faces.
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here.

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun
And I say, "It's all right"

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.

Chung & Jackie chill out at Bar 55


Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting.
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear.

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun
And I say, "It's all right"
 

BECAUSE

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=63LfaAyhgJY

 

Because the world is round, it turns me on.
Because the world is round.
Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.
Because the wind is high.

Love is old, love is new.
Love is all, love is you.

Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry.
Because the sky is blue.

 

Abbey Road Medley

Part One: You Never Give Me Your Money through She Came In Through The Bathroom Window

www.

youtube.com/watch?v=GZz-2aKaYzA

 

YOU NEVER GIVE ME YOUR MONEY

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

 

You never give me your money
You only give me your funny paper.
And in the middle of negotiations

You break down.

I never give you my number
I only give you my situation.
And in the middle of investigations

I break down.

Out of college, money spent
See no future, pay no rent
All the money's gone, nowhere to go.
Hey jobber, got the sack
Monday morning turning back
Yellow light slow, nowhere to go.

But, oh, that magic feeling, nowhere to go.
Oh, that magic feeling, nowhere to go.
Nowhere to go.

One sweet dream

Pick up the bags and get in the limousine.
Soon, we'll be away from here
Step on the gas and wipe that tear away.
One sweet dream came true today
Came true today
Hey Jude, today.

 

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven

All good children go to Heaven.

 

SUN KING

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

 

Here come the Sun King.

Kay & I show effects of alcohol

Here come the Sun King.
Everybody's laughing
Everybody's happy.
Here come the Sun King.

Quando paramucho mi amore de felice corazon.
Mundo paparazzi mi amore chica ferdy parasol.
Cuesto obrigado tanta mucho que can eat it carousel.
 

MEAN MR. MUSTARD

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

 

Mean Mr. Mustard sleeps in the park
Shaves in the dark trying to save paper.
Sleeps in a hole in the road
Saving up to buy some clothes.
Keeps a ten-bob note up his nose
Such a mean old man.
Such a mean old man.

His sister Pam works in a shop
She never stops, she's a go-getter.

Takes him out to look at the Queen
Only place that he's ever been.
Always shouts out something obscene.
Such a dirty old man
Dirty old man.

 

POLYTHENE PAM

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

 

Well, you should see Polythene Pam,
She's so good-looking, but she looks like a man.

After Bar 55, chow down at Wagamama

Well, you should see her in drag dressed in her polythene bag.
Yes, you should see Polythene Pam.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Get a dose of her in jackboots and kilt,
She's killer-diller when she's dressed to the hilt.
She's the kind of a girl that makes the “News Of The World”
Yes, you could say she was attractively built.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

 

SHE CAME IN THROUGH THE BATHROOM WINDOW

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

 

She came in through the bathroom window,
Detected by a silver spoon.
But now, she sucks her thumb and wonders
By the banks of her own lagoon.

Didn't anybody tell her?
Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the phone to Monday
Tuesday's on the phone to me.

She said she'd always been a dancer,
She worked at 15 clubs a day.
And though she thought I knew the answer
Well, I knew that I could not say.

And so I quit the police department
And got myself a steady job.
And though she tried her best to help me
She could steal, but she could not rob.

Didn't anybody tell her?
Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the phone to Monday
Tuesday's on the phone to me.

 

Abbey Road Medley

Part Two: Golden Slumbers through Her Majesty

www.

youtube.com/watch?v=5i6kGO9ZnqQ&NR=1

 

GOLDEN SLUMBERS

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

 

Once there was a way to get back homeward.
Once there was a way to get back home.
Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby.

Golden slumbers fill you eyes.
Smiles awake you when you rise.
Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby.

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home.
Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby.

 

CARRY THAT WEIGHT

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

 

Boy, you're gonna carry that weight

Carry that weight a long time.
Boy, you're gonna carry that weight

Carry that weight a long time.

John & Darren discuss UK football


I never give you my pillow
I only send you my invitations.
And in the middle of the celebrations

I break down.

Boy, you're gonna carry that weight

Carry that weight a long time.
Boy, you're gonna carry that weight

Carry that weight a long time.
 

THE END

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

 

Oh, yeah! Alright!
Are you gonna be in my dreams tonight?

And in the end,
The love you take

Is equal to the love you make.

 

HER MAJESTY

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

 

Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
But she doesn't have a lot to say.

Olga & Daniel - it's beddy-bye time

Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
But she changes from day to day.


I wanna tell her that I love her a lot
But I gotta get a bellyfull of wine.
Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
Someday, I'm gonna make her mine, oh yeah
Someday, I'm gonna make her mine.
