            THE BEATLES - SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND
                               Paul McCartney
         From SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND album. Released
                             on June 1st 1967.

      ----------------------------------------------------------------





    On Wednesday 1st February the Beatles recorded 9 takes of the basic
    rhythm track, drums, bass and two guitars, one by Paul and the other
    by George. Only two of those, one and nine takes, were seen thru to
    completion.





   It was twenty years ago today
   Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play
   They've been goin' in and out of style
   But they're guaranteed to raise a smile
   So may I introduce to you
   The act you've known for all these years
   Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

   We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
   We hope you will enjoy the show
   Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
   Sit back and let the evening go
   Sergeant Pepper's Lonely, Sergeant Pepper's Lonely
   Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
   It's wonderful to be here
   It's certainly a thrill
   You're such a lovely audience
   We'd like to take you home with us
   We'd love to take you home

   I don't really want to stop the show
   But I thought you might like to know
   That the singer's gonna sing a song
   And he wants you all to sing along
   So let me introduce to you
   The one and only Billy Shears
   And Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
   Yeah
