The Singer’s Going to Sing A Song: Sgt. Pepper’s Lyrical Library Links

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

This summer, the world celebrates the 50th anniversary of a landmark Beatles album. Among many other things, it is remembered for being one of the first albums to include the printed lyrics for each song.

And when my mind is wandering, here I will go:

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
Lyrical Library Link: The act you’ve known for all these years.

With a Little Help From My Friends
Lyrical Library Link: Does it worry you to be alone?

Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds
Lyrical Library Link: Newspaper taxis appear on the shore.

She’s Leaving Home
Lyrical Library Link: Friday morning at nine o’clock she is far away.

Getting Better
Lyrical Library Link: Man, I was mean, but I’m changing my scene.

Fixing a Hole
Lyrical Library Link: I’m painting my room in a colorful way.

Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite
Lyrical Library Link: Pablo Fanque's Fair — what a scene.

Within You Without You
Lyrical Library Link:  When you've seen beyond yourself then you may find, peace of mind is waiting there.

When I’m Sixty-Four
Lyrical Library Link: Every summer we can rent a cottage in the Isle of Wight (if it’s not too dear).

Lovely Rita
Lyrical Library Link: When are you free to take some tea with me?

Good Morning Good Morning
Lyrical Library Link: Going to work, don’t want to go, feeling low down.

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)
Lyrical Library Link: We’d like to thank you once again.

A Day in the Life
Lyrical Library Link: But I just had to look, having read the book.
