I like to dream of a huge box: "The Beatles 1969: The Complete Get Back /Abbey Road Sessions"

The following people thank vonbontee for this post:

Richard

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

I like to dream of a huge box: "The Beatles 1969: The Complete Get Back /Abbey Road Sessions"

Ringo originally wrote different lyrics to Octopus's Garden :

 

I'd like to dream of a huge box,

with the complete Get Back and Abbey Road sessions.

It would be great, despite the state

of the complete Get Back and Abbey Road sessions.

 

We would hear every version of each song,

maybe once, but I don't really mind.

I'd like to get, my sweaty mitts

on the complete Get Back and Abbey Road sessions.

 

It weighs a tonne. It wasn't fun,

but it's the complete Get Back and Abbey Road sessions.

The guys would shout, and then walk out

of the complete Get Back and Abbey Road sessions.

 

George would leave his biscuits on his amp,

Yoko would eat them all herself.

I'll admit, the band were shit,

during the Get Back and Abbey Road sessions.

 

Perhaps instead, the Grateful Dead

will invite me to sit in for a few shows.

And oh what joy, to be in the Pink Floyd,

knowing that the band wont come to blows.

 

I would be so happy on my own,

knowing Paul can't tell me how to drum.

I'd rather be Pete Best you see,

in a rat-infested inner-city slum.

[Clever Parody Lyrics]

The funny part is that Ringo actually did have different lyrics to Octopus's Garden .  There's a verse that goes something like:

 

I'd like to be under the sea

In an Octopus's Garden in the shade

It would be nice in paradise

In an Octopus's Garden in the shade
