   A Day In The Life
by John T. Marck

A Day In The Life

Recorded at Studio Two, Abbey Road, January 19 & 20, and February 3, 10 & 22, 1967. The album version is mixed from takes 6 -7.A Day In The Life , another Lennon composition, came from several newspaper articles in the Daily Mail. Paul contributed to this song in the section, "Woke up, got out of bed..." from an unfinished song he had been working on. Rather than complete the song, it's short verse was added here.

I read the news today oh, boy,

about a lucky man who made the grade

And though the news was rather sad,


I just had to laugh, I saw the photograph

He blew his mind out in a car, h

e didn't notice that the lights had changed

A crowd of people stood and stared,

they'd seen his face before,

Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords

I saw a film today oh, boy,

the English army had just won the war

A crowd of people turned away,

but I just had to look,

having read the book,

I love to turn you on.

Woke up, got out of bed, dragged a comb across my head

Found my way downstairs and drank a cup, and looking up, I noticed I was late

Found my coat and grabbed my hat, made the bus in seconds flat

Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,

somebody spoke and I went into a dream, ah

I read the news today oh, boy,

four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire

And though the holes were rather small,

they had to count them all

Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall,

I'd love to turn you on
