Didn't see a thread for this so I figured Y Not? a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

A few to start off with...

"it's all down-down-down-down to Goodnight Vienna..."

Woman of the Night:

"She's A Woman of the night And I Love Her "

"and you laugh much louder when you've learned to cry"

Everyone Wins:

"the light that's shining out from you will touch everything that you see"

At 1:25 into English Garden, Ringo goes into a bit from Let 'Em In.

Someone's knockin' at the door
Someone's ringin' my bell

It is so casual.

Then the song goes into the sound of rain.

The No No Song

"No, no, no, no, I don't *sniff* no more, I'm tired of waking up on the floor. 

No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze and then it makes it hard to find the door."

Goodnight Vienna

"It's all da da da down to goodnight Vienna..."

Photograph

"Now you're expecting me to live without you, but that's not something that i'm looking forward to."

It Don't Come Easy

"Peace, remember peace is how we make it. Here within your reach if you're big enough to take it."

Fading In and Fading Out

"But that's all right, I'm here right now. It takes so long sometimes to figure out, fading in and fading out."

Elizabeth Reigns

"A letter unsent, entombed in cement and hung from the hanging tree. 

God save the Queen if you know what I mean, we don't really need a king."

Never Without You

His song for George. I love the entire thing.

"Crazy days and reckless nights, limousines and bright spotlights,

we were brothers through it all."

La De Da

"La la de da, like que sera sera, whatever la de da, la de da. 

All you got to say is la de da." (I agree with Little Piggy Dragonguy here a-hard-days-night-ringo-8)

All great song bits ^^ I may have more to add soon!

The "I'm tired of waking up on the floor" reminds me of Help ! where the lady tries to grab the ring off his hand in his sleep and dragging him onto the floor and he wakes up, lol.

"No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze and then it makes it hard to find the door."

This lyric always drove me nuts, because cocaine is the only drug mentioned in the lyrics that would cause sneezing, but it's after every verse.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

The use of "right one for me" and "write one for me" in Write One for Me. Very clever. apple01

We were young, it was fun
And we couldn't lose
Time were right, overnight
We were headline news
Crazy days and reckless nights
Limosuines and bright spotlights
We were brothers through it all
And your song will play on without you
And this world won't forget about you
Every part of you was in your song
Now we will carry on...
 
Never Without you (without you without you)
Here comes the song it's about you
 
Here today, not alone
With my memories
Life is strange how things change
It's reality
You played a beautiful melody
That keeps on haunting me
I can always feel you by my side
And your song will play on without you
And this world won't forget about you
Every part of you was in your song
Now we will carry on...
 
Never Without you (Never Without you)
Within You Without You  (Within You Without You )
Here comes the song it's about you
 

I know All Things Must Pass
And only love will last
I'll always love the memory of you and me
Take it away Eric

And your song will play on without you
And this world won't forget about you
Every part of you was in your song
Now we will carry on...

Never Without you
(Never Without You)

Within You Without You

Lives on a farm, got plenty of charm, beep, beep.
He's got no cows but he's sure got a whole lotta sheep.
And brand new wife and a family,
And when he comes to town,
I wonder if he'll play with me.

I think the sentiment in that is so sad, especially when you compare it to the bits about John and George, in which he knows they'll play with him. I can't imagine Paul ever holding a grudge against Ringo - even then - but he clearly wasn't so sure they'd ever be friends again.

The birthday concert where it was Ringo's 70th and Paul showed up to play "Birthday " makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Especially the part at the end. It's great that they became close friends again. 

A bit from Golden Blunders:

"Nothing lasts if nothing's there"

So true.

Back Off Boogaloo, I love all of it. Besides being the only Ringo song that I find listenable.

I am you as you are you as you are you and you are all together.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Ditto.

Ringo has some awesome solo songs. Surely everyone loves the song Liverpool 8.

"Went to Hamburg, the red lights were on
With George and Paul, and my friend John"

"In the U.S.A. when we played Shea
We were number one and it was fun
When I look back, it sure was cool
For those four boys from Liverpool"
