This is the Lyrics Page

When I was a kid, during an history class, my teacher told me that the eldest fossil of an Australopithecus scheleton ever found was a female, and that she was named Lucy after a Beatles song.

Back then all the Beatles songs that I knew where happy melodies and words of love - well, not that I could understand the lyrics at that age - and when I looked for that song on my uncles tapes I was a little disappointed.

It took me few years to approach that song again, and deciding that it was cool enough to name my baby dog after it.

And then I was a teenager and it was that time when saying that you were listening to The Beatles aka The White Album and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was much cooler than singing A Hard Day's Night and so Lucy was back on.

And Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is not just one of the masterpieces of psychedelic rock, it has also been one of the most discussed songs by the Beatles for its meaning, its title and the mystery surrounding it and Sgt. Pepper's and it goes like this:

Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.
Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
And she's gone.

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people
eat marshmellow pies,
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers,
That grow so incredibly high.
Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
And you're gone.

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

Picture yourself on a train in a station,
With plasticine porters
with looking glass ties,
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstyle,
The girl with the kaleidoscope eyes.

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
