   Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
by John T. Marck

 


 


Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

Recorded at Studio Two, Abbey Road, March 1 & 2, 1967. The album version was mixed from take 8.Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, long thought to be about an LSD trip, was written by Lennon taken from an idea he got from his son Julian. Julian, a young boy, came home one day with a painting he had done at school of one of his classmates named Lucy O'Donnell. In explaining the painting to his father, he described it as Lucy, in the sky with diamonds, and the song was born. Pictured above is the original drawing by Julian that inspired his father John to write this song.

 

Picture yourself on a boat in a river, with tangerine trees and marmalade skies

Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly, a girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green, towering over your head

Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes, and she's gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds,

Lucy in the sky with diamonds,

Lucy in the sky with diamonds, ah

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain,

where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies

Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers,

that grow so incredibly high

Newspaper taxies appear on the shores,

waiting to take you away

Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,

and you're gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds,

Lucy in the sky with diamonds,

Lucy in the sky with diamonds, ah

Picture yourself in a train in a station,

with plasticine porters with looking glass ties

Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile,

the girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Lucy in the sky with diamonds,

Lucy in the sky with diamonds,

Lucy in the sky with diamonds, ah

Lucy in the sky with diamonds,

Lucy in the sky with diamonds,

Lucy in the sky with diamonds, ah
