Sorry, @meanmistermustard. I should have said that so you could go to bed happy then corrected myself in the morning. Let’s roll the clock back a few minutes and pretend that’s how this happened.

Being unable to think of anything else i thought of ‘Revolution 9 ‘ and not having a clue what the heck goes on in there i looked up a transcript  which has

“And his eyes were low”

Is that that last one or is there another one more @Ahhh Girl? And i will point out its 2am in the morning.a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Go to bed, @meanmistermustard. I won’t reveal the answer until I know you have had a few hours of sleep.

Besides, I am headed off to la-la land myself.

A hint: the song is on both a canon album and a BBC album. It is one of the covers they did.

Across The Universe Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes
Ain’t She Sweet Just cast an eye in her direction
All My Loving Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you
Anytime At All If you need somebody to love, just look into my eyes
Blackbird Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
Dear Prudence Dear Prudence open up your eyes
Devil In Her Heart Her eyes they tantalise
For No One And in her eyes you see nothing
Golden Slumbers Golden Slumbers fill your eyes
Happiness Is A Warm Gun Lying with his eyes while his hands are busy working overtime
Hello Little Girl When I try to catch your eye I cry, hmm-mm Hello Little Girl
Here, There And Everywhere Watching her eyes and hoping I’m always there
I Am The Walrus Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog’s eye.
I Need You I didn’t realize as I looked in your eyes…
I’m Only Sleeping Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
It Won’t Be Long Every night the tears come down from my eyes
It’s All Too Much When I look into your eyes, your love is there for me / With your long blonde hair and your eyes of blue
Julia Julia , seashell eyes, windy smile, calls me
Lonesome Tears in My Eyes I’m a-tryin’ to forget these Lonesome Tears in My Eyes
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds A girl with kaleidoscope eyes. / Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
Memphis, Tennessee With hurry home drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye
Penny Lane Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
Piggies In their eyes there’s something lacking
Please Mister Postman So many days passed me by, see the tears standing in my eyes
Revolution And his eyes were low
She’s A Woman She don’t give boys the eye
Strawberry Fields Forever Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.
Taxman Declare the pennies on your eye
Tell Me What You See Open up your eyes now, Tell Me What You See . / Look into these eyes now, Tell Me What You See .
Tell Me Why Holding back these tears in my eyes.
The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill So Captain Marvel zapped him right between the eyes-ah!
The Fool On The Hill And the eyes in his head, See the world spinning around.
The Night Before Love was in your eyes, ah, the night before.
Think For Yourself You’re telling all those lies, about the good things that we can have if we close our eyesk
You’ll Be Mine And I could see a nice little healthy eyeball

I added RN’s contribution to this list. That’s all I have for now. If anyone comes up with another song for the list, I’ll add it.

Are any other body parts (internal or external), mentioned more than eyes are mentioned in Beatles songs?

Devil In Her Heart She’s got the devil in her heart / She’s gonna tear your heart apart / Oh, her lips they really thrill me

When I’m 64…

When I get older, losing my hair, many years from now Will you still be sending me a valentine, birthday greetings, bottle of wine?

It’s All Too Much Long blonde hair

I want to hold your hand

Happiness Is A Warm Gun She’s well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand / While his hands are busy working overtime / When I hold you in my arms (Oh yeah)/ And I feel my finger on your trigger


This isn’t the Fifty Shades thread so perhaps we won’t call “your trigger” a body part.

‘Lend me your ears‘ – ‘With A Little Help

Arm, foot and leg are heard in ‘Ob-La-Di/Da’ but not part of the actual lyrics.

Toe-jam football…  monkey finger.. feet down below his knees” – ‘Come Together

Is your soul allowed? “Don’t take nothing but your soul” – ‘The Ballad Of John And Yoko ‘.

Mind is also in there a few times if that counts. It’s also in The Night Before .

Here I stand, head in hand, turn my face to the wall. If she’s gone I can’t go on feeling two foot small.

That was a good one!

There, running my hands through her hair.

Someone has to mention that the backing vocals for Girl were a repetition of the word…

And it was a deliberate reference to part of the female anatomy. Naughty boys!

More from Ob-La-Di

And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand

Desmond lets the children lend a hand
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face

And the reverse
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does her pretty face

I was definitely thinking about including ideas like soul and mind.
