WAXING LYRICAL: BEATLES FOREVER

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Here are the lyrics [as best as Yours Truly KJS can do them justice] for the legendary "Beatles Forever" , written by a certain Jeff Lynne circa 1982 thus:
"There's something about a Beatles' song, that lives forever more,
The beauty of the harmonies, the sound of the Fab Four,
All their music will live on and on, John 'n' Paul, George and Ringo,
They really taught the world to sing!
Beatles Forever, Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band,
Beatles Forever, All You Need Is Love, yeah yeah yeah,
Beatles Forever, I Wanna Hold Your Hand,
Beatles Forever, Hey Jude and Revolution, number nine!
'Cause when you feel the beat, you've gotta move your feet,
You get the rhythm 'n' blues, and a pretty tune,
Rock 'n' roll eternity, that started out as Mersey beat!
I try to write a good song, a song with feel and care,
I think it's quite a good song, 'til I hear one of theirs,
Makes you wonder how they did it, John 'n' Paul, George and Ringo
I wish I knew the secret!
Beatles Forever, Strawberry Fields Forever and ever,
Beatles Forever, Nowhere Man and Penny Lane,
Beatles Forever, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds,
Beatles Forever, Get Back and Yesterday!
'Cause when you feel the beat, you've gotta move your feet,
You get the rhythm 'n' blues, and a pretty tune,
Rock 'n' roll eternity, that started out as Mersey beat,
All the children sing!
Beatles Forever, Please Please Me, Eleanor Rigby,
Beatles Forever, I Am The Walrus,
Beatles Forever, She Loves You, ooh, Day Tripper,
Beatles Forever, Eight Days A Week, Magical Mystery Tour!
'Cause when you feel the beat, you've gotta move your feet,
You get the rhythm 'n' blues, and a pretty tune,
Rock 'n' roll eternity, that started out as Mersey beat!
Feel the beat, gotta move your feet,
Rhythm and blues, pretty tune, rock 'n' roll, eternity,
Started out, as Mersey beat!
Beatles Forever, Beatles Forever, Beatles Forever!"
