Hi Jackson. Thanks for your kind words. I'm the person behind the site - it's only me, not a team of us!

I'd love to add the lyrics, but I'm fearful of being shut down by Apple Corps (hence the disclaimer at the foot of this page). This 2002 story in particular put me off:
http://www.sptimes.com/2002/08....._t_w.shtml
http://fab4lyrics.stonegauge.c...../about.htm - the replacement site (it didn't really stop him, evidently).

I've put quite a bit of work into this site, and the last thing I want is to get on the wrong side of Apple. In honesty, in recent years they seem to be a bit more chilled out about fan/tribute sites, particularly since Neil Aspinall moved on, but even so the wholesale republishing of copyrighted material such as lyrics is probably a risk too far. However, if anyone from Apple Corps happens to be reading and would like to grant me permission (tacit or otherwise) to use the lyrics, please get in touch!

The lyrics to cover versions done by The Beatles are on the relevant song pages (eg Twist And Shout, Money), but nothing written by John, Paul, George and Ringo.
