Brother, Can You Take Me Back?

Sexy Sadie, what have you done? Happiness is a warm gun,
and though tomorrow may rain, I’ll follow the sun. Here comes the sun.
Tell me why you cry, cry baby cry, and I will sing a lullaby. You make your mother sigh,
she’s old enough to know better, it’s getting better all the time.
So wait, till I come back to your side, everybody’s got something to hide,
when I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide,
and she’s got a ticket to ride, but she don’t care
that the Henderson’s will all be there, running my hands through her hair.
There are places I remember, all my life, though some have changed,
and the banker never wears a mack in the pouring rain, very strange.
I am the eggman, they are the eggman, and he’s a real nowhere man,
such a dirty old man, dirty old man, Taxman, living in his nowhere land.
I don’t want to start complaining but you know there’s always rain in my heart,
Love you whenever we’re together, love you when we’re apart.

A, (I’d like to) B, (under the) C, D, can I bring my friend to tea?
Mother Mary comes to me, the way things are going they’re gonna crucify me.
You, you know, you know my name,
I’m looking through you, you’re not the same.
I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me,
her majesty is a pretty nice girl, but she’s so heavy.
I need somebody to love, love me do, you like me too much and I like you,
and all you need is love, and baby you’re a rich man too.
When the rain comes around they hide their heads,
but if you won’t see me, I’ll cry instead, as I know what it’s like to be dead.
See me in my field of grass, mother nature’s son, mother superior jumped the gun,
see how they run, no sign of love behind the tears cried for no one.
My baby said she’s travelling on the one after nine oh nine,
But all through the day, I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.

Try to see it my way, only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong,
it won’t be long, so take a sad song, and make it better.
I want to tell you, about the things that you do, it’s so hard loving you
as life flows on within you and without you, you looked at me that’s all you had to do.
I call your name, but you’re not there, all you gotta do is call and I’ll be there.
She took me half the way there. I will be here, there, and everywhere.
Can you take me back where I came from, can you take me back,
get back, get back to where you once belonged, as it’s only a northern song,
but I said something wrong and it’s been a long, long, long and winding road.
Why should it be so much, to ask of you, what you’re doing to me,
can’t you see, can’t you see? That when I tell you that I love you,
baby’s in black and I’m feeling blue, but I’ll get you,
I’ll get you in the end with a little help from my friends.
And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
