Eleanor Rigby

Nobody came...

Eleanor rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from ?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong ?

Father mckenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near.
Look at him working. darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there
What does he care?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Eleanor rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father mckenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
No one was saved

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

En sterk artikkel..og en sterk tekst fra Paul McCartneys hånd. John Lennon hevdet forresten mange år senere at han kompletterte teksten på et par vers etter at Paul hadde stått bom fast.

En av yndlingsmytene jeg har snappet opp om samarbeidet mellom Paul og John er forresten da Paul nesten hadde skrevet ferdig "Hey Jude", men manglet et par setninger i det ene verset. John kastet et raskt blikk på teksten, og skrev så den berømte linjen ..the movement you need is on your shoulder.. Paul kikket på ordene, og spurte: "But what does it MEAN?" Hvorpå John noe overbærende svarte: "Just relax Paul, it doesn't have to MEAN anything..".

En flott sang fra et flott album.
