   Get Back
by John T. Marck



Get Back

Written by Paul, it was originally a political satire on the feelings by some that immigrants to Britain should be repatriated. In the original demos, he was singing about the Pakistanis taking others jobs, and that they should go back to where they came from. But, mostly his satirical intentions were misunderstood. For years Paul had to answer questions about this from those who heard his original "bootleg" version, believing him to be a racist. In fact, The Beatles were probably the least racist of any group. When it was recorded in its final form, it had been transformed to speak of Jojo of Tucson. Linda McCartney had lived in Tucson for a while, which was probably Paul's inspiration for using it. From this, no other story line was evident. "Get Back" was a huge hit for The Beatles, selling more than two million copies worldwide, and reached number one in America, Britain, Australia, Canada, West Germany and France.

Jo Jo was a man who thought he was a loner,

but he knew it couldn't last

Jo Jo left his home in Tucson, Arizona,

for some California grass

get back, get back,

get back to where you once belonged

get back, get back,

get back to where you once belonged, get back Jo Jo

go home, get back,

get back, get back to where you once belonged

get back, get back,

get back to where you once belonged, get back Jo

Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman,

but she was another man

all the girls around her say she's got it coming,

but she gets it while she can

get back, get back,

get back to where you once belonged,

get back, get back

get back to where you once belonged,

get back Loretta

Go home,

ah, get back, yeah, get back,

get back to where you once belonged

yeah get back,

get back get back to where you once belonged,

get back, ooo

get back, Loretta,

your mommy's waiting for you,

wearin' her high heel shoes and her low neck sweater,

get back home, Loretta,

get back, get back,

get back to where you once belonged.

get back, get back, get back...
