By John T. Marck

From the beginning of their careers, The Beatles' manager, Brian Epstein, had always encouraged them to write songs, not only for themselves, but also for other performers, figuring that the exposure would be good for them. But, at this time, they had not yet acquired their song writing reputation power, and many other performers turned down their songs. Helen Shapiro, another British performer was offered this song, and was the first such performer to have a song written especially for her by Lennon and McCartney, yet her management made her turn it down. Consequently, The Beatles performed it themselves. The song's intent is about two boys who are brokenhearted over the loss of a love. Although discontent in the story it tells, it is probably the most upbeat dejected song you will hear. Originally, the first line as written was "You've been treating me bad, misery." Lennon and McCartney changed it during the recording to make the song have a more international appeal. This was recorded on February 11 and 20, 1963.

The world is treating me bad, misery

I'm the kind of guy, who never used to cry, the world is treating me bad, misery

I've lost her now for sure, I won't see her no more, it's gonna be a drag, misery

I'll remember all the little things we've done, can't she see she'll always be the only one Only one

Send her back to me, cause everyone can see, without her I will be, in misery

I'll remember all the little things we've done, She'll remember and she'll miss her only one, lonely one

Send her back to me, cause everyone can see, without her I will be,

in misery Oh, oh in misery,

woo, my misery,

la, la, la, la, la, la, misery
