   It Won't Be Long
by John T. Marck



It Won't Be Long

Written mostly by Lennon, this song was intended as a follow up to the success of "She Loves You," and the yeah yeah yeah chorus. Lennon wrote this as a echo of his own life, being lonely, waiting for the girl to return that walked out on him, to come back and make him happy again. It seems that many of Lennon's songs that dealt with broken relationships were not necessarily fueled by romances that didn't work out. In this youth he felt lonely and dejected. His father left him as a child, and in effect, he was dejected again when his mother turned him over to her sister, John's Aunt Mimi to raise him. Then, in 1958, his mother was killed when she was struck by an automobile. Lennon thought and rightfully so, that he lost his mother twice. It was recorded on July 30, 1963.
