Ahhh Girl enquired 

Does someone from House Harrison know of a Georgle song that mentions an English garden?  

Surprisingly, the Beatle most fond of his English garden doesn't seem to have directly mentioned it in a song -- at least, I can't think of anything off the top of my head; I shall have to comb his catalogue more carefully. ahdn_george_01

@Ahhh Girl The Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp is about Friar Park. 

Find me where ye echo lays
Lose ye bodies in the maze
See the lord and all the mouths he feeds
Let it roll among the weeds
Let it roll

I considered that*, but I didn't think it counted as he doesn't actually refer to an English garden. It's all pretty cryptic. 

*As an official resident of Where Ye Echo Lays, of course I considered it! a-hard-days-night-george-10

I always think of Another Day as a companion to Eleanor Rigby : first we have our lady young, lonesome, longing for someone to share her life with, but finding no one, and feeling so sad that life doesn't seem worth living; and then we have her a couple decades later as a lonely old spinster who is so alone in the world that when she dies suddenly (some say Father MacKenzie murders her: I say she either died of natural causes -- a heart attack, perhaps -- because 'nobody came' to help her when she was in trouble, or she committed suicide -- she was 'So sad' that 'she finds it hard to stay alive', after all), her name is forgotten*. 

(*Never mind that very famous Beatles song that bears her name and chronicles a substantial part of her history. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

 

Ah, look at all the lonely people in Paul's songs...

Hi Hi Hi from Paul
Well, well, take off your face
Recover from the trip you've been on

Eleanor Rigby from Paul
wearing the face
That she keeps in a jar by the door

Perusing through this thread, I haven't seen a comparison to the two Harrisongs While My Guitar Gently Weeps  and This Guitar Can't Keep From Crying.

I feel like I have seen it before in here, but cannot find. I'm sorry if this is a re-post.

Edit: Yep, @Little Piggy Dragonguy said it on page two. Sorry folks. 

Edit 2: To compensate for this useless post, I'll add another Harrisong juxtaposition. Don't Bother Me   and A Bit More Of You. 

It is time for bed.

This opposing idea is in one song: Pools of sorrow, waves of joy. When John then sang "Nothing's gonna change my world", I wonder if he realized that he would always have huge conflicts within himself. Maybe he saw no way to calm down the contradictions in his mind and being. Both sorrow and joy were strong emotions inside him fighting to be in control.

These two Richard songs have a similar line.

 

It Don't Come Easy

"Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues,
And you know it don't come easy."

 

Choose Love

"You've got to pay your dues, if you want to sing the blues
But, no matter what you choose, choose love"

I was listening to Ringo's song "All in the Name of Love" this morning and thought of the similar messages in The Word and All You Need Is Love .

Wouldn't surprise me. Has he rearranged the lyrics of both songs for the new one? If not it's not long till he does.

All in the Name of Love is very different from the two Beatles songs.

I just listened to this song in my Necko style library listening.  I totally agree with you.  Those two songs have similar meanings as well.  They're all about love.

A Day In The Life
"Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke"

On My Way to Work
"On my way to work
I rode a big green bus
I could see everything
From the upper deck
People came and went
Smoking cigarettes
I picked the packets up
When the people left"

In Penny Lane we have a fireman who
"likes to keep his fire engine clean,
It's a clean machine."

In Average Person, Paul sings about
"talking to a former engine driver
Trying to find out what he used to do
Tells me that he always kept his engine
Spit and polished up as good as new."

Not sure if this counts, but awhile ago I noticed something cool about Dear Prudence and Wonderful Christmastime

The "the sun is up; the sky is blue; it's beautiful, and so are you" bit from the former can fit into the "the moon is right; the spirits up; we're here tonight, and that's enough" bit from the latter and vice versa. Here's what I mean:

"The sun is up; the sky is blue; it's beautiful, and so are you

Simply having a wonderful Christmastime"

 

"The moon is right; the spirits up; we're here tonight, and that's enough

Dear Prudence "

See, if you use the melody of Wonderful Christmastime when you read the first one, and the melody of Dear Prudence when reading the second, they fit perfectly! a-hard-days-night-george-9

Has anyone else noticed this? a-hard-days-night-paul-10
