I really like the lyrics to Something and Taxman. They're total opposites. One's completely loving, the other is the closest The Beatles got to being punks. I love it.

Best: Something

Least: I would have to say It's Only A Northern Song, but it's still lyrically a great song. The only beef I have with the lyrics in this one is that the first part confirms that it is, indeed, a song.

If I have a problem with any of these songs, the lyrics aren't the problem.

Old Brown Shoe contains Harrison's wittiest and sharp opening lines to any of his songs. See them in my sig.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

Mhh I'll jump into this old topic.

 

It's hard to say. There are very few Beatles lyrics I don't like. Most of Harrison's songs have beautiful or clever lyrics, (or at least I don't remember one I don't like) but I'll chose While My Guitar Gently Weeps. It's I dunno.. a beautiful way to describe a sad situation.

Favorites: While My Guitar Gently Weeps & Taxman

WmGGW because it's melancholy. The song, I don't know how to say, it just makes me feel something.

And Taxman because the lyrics were very clever, and he even mentions several tax collectors by name (Mr Heath and Mr Wilson). There's one for you, nineteen for me....

Least Favorite: I really don't have one

 

Bonus! Got a 9!

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

Hmmmm, that's a tough one. George has a lot of songs with great lyrics. But if I absolutely had to choose a favorite, it would be Here Comes The Sun. And that's pretty much just because it's such an optimistic song. And I try to be optimistic in any situation I'm in, wheather good or bad. So the song kind of speaks to me.

Favorite: "I Want to Tell You." 

Least favorite? 

Umm....

Is that even possible?

Love You To has lame lyrics, IMO.

Least favourite lines: "I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping/Still my guitar gently weeps"

Great song, but that couplet really is awful.

"I don't know how you were diverted/You were perverted too/I don't know how you were inverted/No one alerted you" - those are pretty dismal lyrics too. Sorry George.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Meh, the thing that I don't like about the song is George's voice on it. Ugh. It's so... drony. 

I like the line about the people standing round who'll screw you in the ground.
