Intro: 8 bars (key of C)

Listen to an old Beatles song
Easy how you can sing along
Just follow the flow and you never go wrong
beep-beep beep

You learn how to play the guitar
Practise Back In The U. S. S. R.
Please, don't play too fast if you're driving my car
beep-beep beep

Look at Paul McCartney, who is on a journey
Just like Buddy Holly, Yeah, he's right on the key

Instrumental: 8 bars

Listen to a new catchy song
Easy, now you can sing along
Just follow the flow and you never go wrong
beep-beep beep

Look at Michael Bublé, who is on a journey
Just like Elvis Presley, Yeah, he's right on the key

Instrumental: 8 bars

Listen to an old Beatles song
Easy how you can sing along
Just follow the flow and you never go wrong
beep-beep beep

Just follow the flow and you never go wrong
beep-beep beep
beep-beep beep
beep-beep beep

Hey Guy I think what your saying in this one, Beatles paved the way for today's music. I like the little 7th chord or an augmented? It reminds me of MICHELLE, and like your beeps...

I think Michael Buble was more influenced by Sinatra but I get your idea

Fun song. You should get band in a box and work with fuller tracks, the simple arrangement starts to sound the same after a while.

Enjoyed.

Great theme Guy personally I've never been a big fan of there's, much preferred the Stones.
Yes it works well. The UKE is a great instrument

I wrote this awhile back and Barry Butler sang it. My tribute to the beatles.
Tribute to the Beatles/ Four young lads from Liverpool
Chorus
Four young lads from Liverpool
Knocked Elvis from his throne
By making a kind of music
The world had never known.
It was a music revolution
as much as a teenage craze.
As they learned from an angry world
We watched their music change.
Verse
We met Lucy in the sky with diamonds;
met the fool up on the hill.
We wondered how Lady Madonna
managed to pay her bills.
We took a magical mystery tour
on a yellow submarine.
Then took a whack at the taxman
for taking his nineteen.
Chorus
Four young lads from Liverpool
Knocked Elvis from his throne
By making a kind of music
The world had never known.
It was a music revolution
as much as a teenage craze.
As they learned from an angry world
We watched their music change.
Verse
It was a wild ride while it lasted
Too bad it had to end.
The burdens of a troubled world
drove a wedge between good friends.
John fell for Yoko;
Linda took Paul away
Then the whole thing came undone
And the four went seperate ways.
Chorus
Four young lads from Liverpool
Knocked Elvis from his throne
By making a kind of music
The world had never known.
It was a music revolution
as much as a teenage craze.
As they learned from an angry world
We watched their music change.
Bridge
John was murdered by a crazy fan
Paul grew wings and started up a band.
singing my Sweet Lord
waiting for a newspaper taxi
to bring Ringo and Paul ashore.

Interesting subject--

The Beatles have spawned many IDEAS worldwide with their music--I have a Book with all the Beatles Songs, with each of their song's background--It's a good reference Book.

Write on!
