Day Tripper

Lennon/McCartney
Album: The Red Album


Got a good reason for taking the easy way out
Got a good reason for taking the easy way out now

She was a day tripper, a one way ticket yea
It took me so long to find out, and I found out

She's a big teaser, she took me half the way there
She's a big teaser, she took me half the way there now

Tried to please her, she only played one night stands
Tried to please her, she only played one night stands now

She was a day tripper, a Sunday driver yea
Took me so long to find out, and I found out

Day tripper
Day tripper yea

Information

'Day Tripper' was a typical play on words by John. He wanted to show the influence of the growing drug culture within a Beatles song. He was referring to 'weekend hippies' that couldn't afford to be regularly tripped out, like him. John said: "Day trippers are people that go on a day trip, right? But (the song) was kind of...you're a weekend hippie. Get it?" The song itself is about a girl who leads the singer on.
