   Eight Days A Week
by John T. Marck



Eight Days A Week

Although considered another true Lennon-McCartney collaboration, John said that it was written by Paul, and Paul says he wrote with John's influence. In any event, it was written as a potential title track for their next movie, which turned out to be Help! But, the title of Help! actually never changed and was always Help. This was written as a sort of just in case title song. What happened was that The Beatles chose the name of "Help" for their second movie, but were told there were copyright problems in that another had registered this name. Because of this, The Beatles first though that they could call their next movie "Beatles II," then decided on "Eight Arms To Hold You." Then, they decided that "Eight Arms To Hold You," made no sense as this was impossible, they then came up with the idea of an explanation mark at the end of "Help" making it now "Help!" therefore removing any copyright problems. McCartney got the idea for this song from the phrase "eight day's a week," from Ringo, who said it describing their terrible work schedule. It is unique in that it was the first Beatles' song to contain a faded intro, and was recorded on October 6 and 18, 1964.

Ooo I need your love, babe,

guess you know it's true

hope you need my love babe,

just like I need you

hold me, love me, hold me, love me

I ain't got nothing but love, babe,

eight days a week

love you every day girl,

always on my mind

one thing I can say girl,

 love you all the time

hold me, love me, hold me, love me

I ain't got nothing but love girl,

eight days a week

eight days a week,

I love you

eight days a week,

is not enough to show I care

Ooo I need your love, babe,

guess you know it's true

hope you need my love babe,

just like I need you

hold me, love me, hold me, love me

I ain't got nothing but love, babe,

eight days a week

eight days a week,

I love you,

eight days a week,

is not enough to show I care

love you every day girl,

always on my mind

one thing I can say girl,

love you all the time

hold me, love me, hold me, love me

I ain't got nothing but love, babe,

eight days a week,

eight days a week,

eight days a week
