She's Leaving Home

Lennon/McCartney
Album: Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

BUY THIS CD AT AMAZON.COM


Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begings
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching her hankerchief
Quietly turing the backdoor key
Stepping outside she is free.
She (We gave her most of our lives)
is leaving (Sacraficed most of our lives)
home (We gave her everything money could buy)
She's leaving home after living alone
For so many years. Bye, bye
Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown
Picks up the letter that's lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She breaks down and cries to her husband
Daddy our baby's gone.
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly
How could she do this to me.
She (We never though of ourselves)
Is leaving (Never a thought for ourselves)
home (We struggled hard all our lives to get by)
She's leaving home after living alone
For so many years. Bye, bye
Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the motor trade.
She What did we do that was wrong
Is having We didn't know it was wrong
Fun Fun is the one thing that money can't buy
Something inside that was always denied
For so many years. Bye, Bye
She's leaving home bye bye

Information

Paul: "That was a Daily Mirror story again: this girl left home and her father said; 'We gave her everything, I don't know why she left home". Although Paul's initial lyrics were based on a newspaper story, John's contribution was more personal. After Paul's dry narration of the girls flight from 'home', John injects emotional impact, voicing the parents reaction. The lines 'We sacrificed most of our lives', 'We gave you everything money could buy', were words he recalled his Aunt Mimi saying to him.
