Seems a little too short, unless if we make it an instrumental like Flying , Wild Honey Pie , and The End . If that’s the case, here’s the lyrics:

Intro:

I love The Beatles Bible, Beatles Bible yay

Instruments come in

Throughout the song:

Beatles bible (repeat these 2 words throughout the song)

Outro:

The Beatles Bible yay hooray

Could use a tune up:

The Beatles Bible, written by sir walter raleigh with some help from Dark Overlord:

Intro:

(instrumental)

Verse 1:

Want to know some more about Paul’s

walrus costume? check the roster,

on the roster there’s a forum

where not a single user’s hostile

Chorus 1:

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

Don’t forget Starr Shine?

Verse 2:

if you want to talk Beatles then there’s no better place

we can talk Budokan, Hey Jude , Rocky all in one place

everybody’s welcome, so come and join the fun

unless you’re not a Beatles fan then you better run!

Chorus 2:

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

Ron Nasty likes them too

10 minute instrumental section:

(the lyrics for this section are said fairly slowly as backing vocals during the beginning of this section)

Jooooooooooooooooooe-oooooooe

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh-ahhhhhhh

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm-mmm-mmm-mmm

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Verse 3:

Now let’s mention some of our users

Starr Shine? will make sure you don’t lose her

Billy Shears and Dark Overlord

The Hole Got Fixed and SgtPeppersBulldog

sir walter raleigh loves to chime

Expert Texpert doesn’t rhyme

Ron Nasty knows a lot

but we all know Joe’s still smart

Silly Girl somehow has the time

to breathe in the money, have a cigar, and lie

meanmistermustard is a big fan

WepingAtlasCedars loves Led Zeppelin

This is becoming a really long song

Ahhh Girl, Zig, let’s move along

Chorus 3:

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

The best rock band of all time

Outro:

(spoken very loudly, similar to I’ve got blisters on my fingers from Helter Skelter )

I live for The Beatles

As a note to Silly Girl, when I say you lie, I mean lie down, not lie as in give fraudulent information.

Verse 3 is well constructed but leaves out Necko, ASJ, trc, all who are on the all time top posters list. My idea with the ahhs and mmms is to have Beach Boys style harmony that disguise the fact that they are names. Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne don’t even get mentions in the scooby doo theme, why should we take the time to mention a massive cluster of users. I say we take after Starr Shine’s video stories and make a music video for the song that incorporates avatars. That would be the best way to reference specific users.

Other than that, I like your version a lot. Here is revision 3:

Verse 1:

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

theyre not jesus but were still disciples 

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

were around all day

 

Chorus

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

learn to use the feckin lingo

 

Verse 2:

if you want to talk Beatles then there’s no better place

we can talk Budokan, Hey Jude, Rocky all in one place

everybody’s welcome, so come and join the fun

unless you’re not a Beatles fan then you better run!

 

Chorus

 

Bridge:

Zig zag zig zag

Ahhh, MMM

*instrumental buildup… JOE!

 

Repeat Chorus

^^^ Great set of lyrics, sir walter! apple01apple01

I thought that this line was quite funny:

learn to use the feckin lingo

But, might that come across as a bit hostile? I know that’s not what you meant it to be; I think it’s the way it’s phrased.

Maybe if we sing it in a certain way, we can make it friendly-sounding? a-hard-days-night-george-9

How about a revision 4, fixing up the first verse which in revision 3 sounded too much like the chorus and removing all references to any users but Joe:

Intro:

(instrumental)

Verse 1:

Want to know some more about Paul’s

walrus costume? check the roster,

on the roster there’s a forum

where not a single user’s hostile

Chorus 1:

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

Hope you like our lingo

Verse 2:

if you want to talk Beatles then there’s no better place

we can talk Budokan, Hey Jude, Rocky all in one place

everybody’s welcome, so come and join the fun

unless you’re not a Beatles fan then you better run!

Chorus 2:

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

John, Paul, George, and Ringo

Beatles Bible Beatles Bible

Joe is the 5th one

Bridge: (backing vocals just say Joe)

We all said they were bigger than Jesus

not sure about that but they sure do please please us

I hope we can all come together

in our Yellow Submarine of hope

we can see the Nowhere Man

and see that the walrus is really Joe

12 minute solo section:

(instrumental)

Sorry I’ve been off the forum for the past 3 hours, I decided that since nobody has recorded a proper backing track yet, I thought I’d do it myself, I hope 11 and a half minutes isn’t too short for you guys.

https://drive.google.com/open?…..2lzUF9oSVU

I know it’s preferred that I use sites like YouTube instead of giving out a download but in this case I thought it made a lot more sense.

This is the instrumentation so far:

Part I:

The Beatles Bible Theme Song

Dark Overlord: Acoustic Guitar, Tambourine, Handclaps, Vocals (“Take 1”)

Part II:

Solo In A

Dark Overlord: Acoustic Guitar, Handclaps, Cowbell, Vocals (subliminal messages “radiant cowbells”)

Part III:

Time And Patience

Dark Overlord: Acoustic Guitar, Keyboard (piano and bell settings)

Part IV:

Your Blues

Dark Overlord: Acoustic Guitar, Handclaps, Vocals

Part V:

Moves Like Hendrix

Dark Overlord: Acoustic Guitar

The things I would like added to the song are vocals, bass guitar, and drums, as well as whatever else you think would fit, but remember, only part 1 has singing in it, parts 2-5 are instrumental. Also, in part 5, I added a section for Martha to play a sax solo and sir walter raleigh to play a piano solo, so be on the lookout for those.

If you can think of a place to fit it, then go ahead. Also, what did you think, did you like the song, I did the backing track and many of the overdubs in one take.

Congratulations! You did a great job in my opinion! Especially Time and Patience is really cool. apple01

By the way, I don’t mind giving the part you left for the sax to somebody else if he/she wants to i.g. let THGF play a French Horn solo instead. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

You don’t have to. You see, there are seven rounds of 12 bar blues in there, we could do it this way:

Rounds 1 and 2:

Martha: Sax

Rounds 3 and 4:

Dark Overlord: Guitar

Rounds 5 and 6:

sir walter raleigh: Piano

Round 7:

The Hole Got Fixed: French Horn

I hope The Hole Got Fixed doesn’t mind getting the round where it slows down, he could also try to throw some French horn in elsewhere if he’d like.

Also, if you were curious how I got my Epiphone acoustic guitar to sound like an electric guitar for parts of the song, I first recorded the song using Audacity, then I amplified it to the point where it was clipping, and then I recorded my computer playing back the song, and amplified it so it wasn’t too quiet.

You need to redo that track with a click track, the timing is all over the place, the 12-bar blues loses beats on the return. I like the first part, that seems ok and the end piece seems ok too. But as a whole its way too long (my audacity had trouble even getting a record track to go because of the massive underruns on a 250+ wav file and my machine is not that slow), so maybe do a retake with a separate click track and cut down the wandering ambient bits. I know it’s a pain but I’ve made the same mistakes and you can’t go back and fix bad timing. Neat trick on the guitar, I’ve used that idea myself.

^^^ I suppose I’ll give it a go and try and come up with something. I’m away at camp for this week, of course, so I can’t really guarantee anything. I’ve got other stuff to finish, as well. ahdn_paul_01

I’ll try and write a little bit, though!
