Penny Lane

Lennon/McCartney, released on Magical Mystery Tour 1967

Lead singer: Paul, 1967 Northern Songs

.

Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs

of every head he's had the pleasure to know

And all the people that come and go stop to say hello

On the corner is a banker with a motor car

the little children laugh at him behind his back

And the banker never wears a "mac" in the pouring rain

Very strange

.

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes

Wet beneath the blue suburban skies

I sit and meanwhile back in

.

Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass

And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen

He likes to keep his fire engine clean

It's clean machine

.

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes

Full of fish and finger pies

in summer meanwhile back

.

Behind the shelter in the middle of the roundabout

A pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray

And though she feels as if she's in a play

She is anyway

Penny Lane, the barber shaves another customer

We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim

And then the fireman rushes in from the pouring rain

very strange

.

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes

Wet beneath the blue suburban skies

I sit and meanwhile back

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes

There beneath the blue suburban skies

Penny Lane
