Yellow Submarine

Lyrics

by

The Beatles



In the town where I was born
Lived a man who sailed to sea
And he told us of his life
In the land of submarines
So we sailed up to the sun
Till we found a sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves
In our yellow submarine

We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

And our friends are all aboard
Many more of them live next door
And the band begins to play

We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

(Full speed ahead Mr. Boatswain, full speed ahead
Full speed ahead it is, Sergeant.
Cut the cable, drop the cable
Aye, Sir, aye
Captain, captain)

As we live a life of ease
Every one of us has all we need
Sky of blue and sea of green
In our yellow submarine

We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

On July 17th 1968, the Beatles' animated feature movie "Yellow Submarine" had its world premier at the London Pavilion in London, England...
It would be almost four months later, on November 13th, 1968, before the film was released across the U.S.A. and Canada...
Two years earlier on August 14th, 1966 the record, "Yellow Submarine", entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #52; and on September 11th, 1966 it peaked at #2 (for 1 week) and spent 9 weeks on the Top 100...
The following week after entering at #52 it jumped all the way to position #8...
And the week it was at #2, the #1 record for that week was "You Can't Hurry Love" by the Supremes...
R.I.P. John and George.

This is a weird Beatle song(and that's covering a lot of ground).

yellow sub was in the period of Beatledom called the Phychodelic period, which included S Pep's L H C B and M M Tour, the yellow sub is a pill drug and blue meanies are the small magic mushrooms, look it up on drugs facts, the whole of the film and the MM Tour prelude were about drugs, the fact the Beatles Genius could revolve it it multi meaning just shows how great they were.
You will find a lot of classic fairy tale has deeper meaning, look up The wizard of Oz about the usa depression, Total.

I absolutely love that Ringo sings this! Amazing! This is such an awesome song...
- Megan, Stevenson, AL
I really believe that the one repeating after Ringo sings in the final verse is Paul ! Sounds like the same voice that says, "We're so sorry, Uncle Albert, but we haven't done a bloody thing all day..." a few years later to me. 'Course I may have flipped!
