Come Together Lyrics by The Beatles


The Beatles Lyrics

Come Together Lyrics
Here come old flattop, he come grooving up slowly
He got joo-joo eyeball, he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine, he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger, he shoot coca-cola
He say "I know you, you know me"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together right now over me


He bag production, he got walrus gumboot
He got Ono sideboard, he one spinal cracker
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease
Come together right now over me

[Right!
Come, oh, come, come, come.]

He roller-coaster, he got early warning
He got muddy water, he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking cos he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me


Oh
Come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah oh
Come together
Yeah come together

Come Together Info:

• John Lennon began writing this song for Timothy Leary's failed gubernatorial campaign in California against Ronald Reagan, which he lost after being arrested for marijuana possession

• The single was banned by the BBC because of its reference to cocaine 'he shoot coca-cola'

• The song won a Grammy Award for best engineered recording in 1969

• The whispered lyric that sounds like 'shoot' is actually Lennon saying 'shoot me' followed by a handclap. The bass line drowns out the 'me.'
