To practice lyric-writing, I'll sometimes add new verses to some of my favourite songs. It may be blasphemous to certain fans, but I enjoy it. Here's a new verse to Hey Jude:

Hey Jude, don't break my heart

Won't you find her, and don't forget her

Remember to let her into your mind

Then you will find you'll make it better.

A Day In The Life, my full version:

I read the news today, oh boy

About a lucky man who made the grade

And though the news was rather sad

Well I just had to laugh

I saw the photograph

 

He blew his mind out in a car

He didn't notice that the lights had changed

A crowd of people stood and stared

They'd seen his face before

Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords

 

I saw a film today, oh boy

The English army had just won the war

A crowd of people turned away

But I just had to look

Having read the book

I'd love to turn you on

 

[crescendo]

 

Woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a comb across my head

Found my way downstairs and drank a cup

And looking up, I noticed I was late

Found my coat, grabbed my hat, made the bus in seconds flat

Found my way upstairs and had a smoke

And somebody spoke and I went into a dream

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (x2)

 

I read the news today, oh boy

About a man who'd wiped his face away

He left his kids and left his wife

To start another life

Away from all the strife

 

He said a free man should be free

So he packed up and fled the country

He left his family distraught

No battles to be fought

Nobody could tell if he was still the same man anymore

 

I heard a song today, oh boy

About a broken soul who stood alone

He watched the sunset from the edge

Looked from the dying light

To the endless night

I'd love to turn you on

 

[crescendo]

 

Woke up, climbed off the bus, made the station in a rush

Found my way around the passengers

And climbed aboard and sondered on the way

Pushed off, pulled away, and made today the day

Where I'd wear a mask and learn to smile

But I knew they'd see my tired eyes

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (x2)

 

I read the news today, oh boy

About a lonely man who'd found his grave

His house was lit up in a blaze

His mind was caught up in the haze

Nobody noticed him for days

 

His life was broken at sunrise

He only noticed when his fuel tank burst

He had no time to run away

And had no signs of life

Half a broken picture, charred and burnt, of his only wife

 

I found a love today, oh boy

We both looked back and then we locked our eyes

But a crowd of people blocked our gaze

Maybe I'll see one day, just show me the way

I'd love to turn you on

 

[crescendo]

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (x4)

 

I read the news today, oh boy

Four-thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire

And though the holes were rather small

They had to count them all

Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall

 

Well I just had to lose

Having read the news

I'd love to turn you on

 

[crescendo]

I've told you 'bout the day in the life, now

It ended quickly but begins here tonight, now

Well there's another girl you can find

Just expand your mind

 

Twistin' on the Isle of Man, yeah

Shoutin' when you're having fun

Awaiting on the Glass Onion...

I'm going to rewrite songs so they're about the specific guitar models that were used on that song:

Let's start, or should I say Strat, with Nowhere Man:

"Fender Strat"

Verse 1:

He's a real Fender Strat
Sitting in his guitar bag
Coming through his Fender amp for George today

5 note guitar lick

Verse 2:

Stratocasters point to cue
Knows not that he's sonic blue
Isn't John's acoustic Gibson weak?

5 note guitar lick

Chorus 1:

Fender Strat, he's plugged in
You will know what you're hearing
Fender Strat, the frets are at my command

Verse 3:

He's as shy as he can be
Just seen when he wants to be
Fender Strat can we see you at all?

Guitar solo

Chorus 2:

Fender Strat, my Rocky
Taxmen cry, we're shady
Leave it dark till George Harrison records Taxman

Verse 4:

Stratocasters point to cue
Knows not that he's sonic blue
Isn't John's acoustic Gibson weak?

5 note guitar lick

Chorus 3:

Fender Strat, he's plugged in
You will know what you're hearing
Fender Strat, the frets are at my command

Verse 5:

He's a real Fender Strat
Sitting in his guitar bag
Coming through his Fender amp for George today
Coming through his Fender amp for George today
Coming through his Fender amp for George today
