All the lonely people

Tony Frank, Jane Birkin.
Eleanor Rigby 

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Father McKenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near
Look at him working, darning his socks in the night when there’s nobody there
What does he care?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
No one was saved

All the lonely people (Ah, look at all the lonely people)
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people (Ah, look at all the lonely people)
Where do they all belong?


The Beatles (John Lennon/Paul  McCartney), «Eleanor Rigby», Revolver (1966).

Girl

Raoul Hausmann, Portrait of Vera Broido, c. 1933.



Girl


Is there anybody gone to listen to my story
All about the girl who came to stay?
She’s the kind of girl you want so much
It makes you sorry;
Still, you don’t regret a single day.
Ah girl! Girl!

She’s the kind of girl who puts you down
When friends are there, you feel a fool.
Didididi..
When you say she’s looking good
She acts as if it’s understood.
She’s cool, cool, cool, cool,
Girl! Girl! [Was she]

When I think of all the times I’ve tried to leave her
She will turn to me and start to cry;
And she promises the earth to me
And I believe her.
After all this times I don’t know why.
Ah, girl! Girl!

She’s the kind of girl who puts you down when friends are there,
You feel a fool.
When you say she’s looking good, she acts as if it’s understood.
She’s cool, cool, cool, cool, Girl! Girl!

Was she told when she was young the pain
Would lead to pleasure?
Did she understand it when they said
That a man must break his back to earn
His day of leisure?
Will she still believe it when he’s dead?
Ah girl! Girl! Girl!



The Beatles/John Lennon, Rubber Soul(1965).


Oh! Darling

Jan Saudek, Ida (1988).

Oh! Darling

Oh! Darling, please believe me
I’ll never do you no harm
Believe me when I tell you
I’ll never do you no harm

Oh! Darling, if you leave me
I’ll never make it alone
Believe me when I beg you
Don’t ever leave me alone

When you told me you didn’t need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and cried
When you told me you didn’t need me anymore
Well you know I nearly fell down and died

Oh! Darling, if you leave me
I’ll never make it alone
Believe me when I tell you
I’ll never do you no harm

When you told me you didn’t need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and cried
When you told me you didn’t need me anymore
Well you know I nearly fell down and died

Oh! Darling, please believe me
I’ll never let you down
Believe me when I tell you
I’ll never do you no harm.

«Oh! Darling» és una cançó de The Beatles composta per Paul McCartney, que va aparèixer en l’àlbum Abbey Road (1969).
