.

Ah, look at all the lonely people

Ah, look at all the lonely people

.

Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice

in the church where a wedding has been

Lives in a dream

Waits at the window, wearing the face

that she keeps in a jar by the door

Who is it for

.

All the lonely people

Where do they all come from?

All the lonely people

Where do they all belong?

.

Father McKenzie, writing the words

of a sermon that no one will hear

No one comes near

Look at him working, darning his socks

in the night when there's nobody there

What does he care

.

All the lonely people

Where do they all come from?

All the lonely people

Where do they all belong?

.

Ah, look at all the lonely people

Ah, look at all the lonely people

.

Eleanor Rigby, died in the church

and was buried along with her name

Nobody came

Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt

from his hands as he walks from the grave

No one was saved

.

All the lonely people

Where do they all come from?

All the lonely people

Where do they all belong?
