Penny Lane

Lennon/McCartney
Album: Magical Mystery Tour

BUY THIS CD AT AMAZON.COM


In Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs
Of every head he's had the pleasure to know.
And all the people that come and go
Stop and say hello.

On the corner is a banker with a motorcar,
The little children laugh at him behind his back.
And the banker never wears a mack
In the pouring rain, very strange.

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back

In penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen.
He likes to keep his fire engine clean,
It's a clean machine.

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
A four of fish and finger pies
In summer, meanwhile back

Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout
The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
And tho' she feels as if she's in a play
She is anyway.

In Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer,
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim.
And then the fireman rushes in
From the pouring rain, very strange.

Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back.
Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
There beneath the blue suburban skies,
Penny Lane.

Information

Although Penny Lane is actually a dull shopping area, it is a happy childhood memory of John and Paul. The places mentioned in the song are not on Penny Lane but nearby. John had tried to mention in in "In My Life". The photos of heads in the barber shop (of Mr. Bioletti who cut the hair of John, Paul and George as children) were photos of different hairstyles. The success of this song has caused many of the features of the town to change. The shelter in the roundabout has turned into a bistro and the street signs are constantly stolen.
