He didn't notice that the lights had changed

A A crowd of people stood and stared

Nobody was really sure

If he was from the House of Lords

Woke up, fell out of bed
Gsus2 Gsus2
Dragged a comb across my head
A A E7sus4 E7sus4
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
A A E7sus4 E7sus4 (E7 E7)
And looking up I noticed I was late (ha ha ha.)
A A
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Gsus2 Gsus2
Made the bus in seconds flat
A A E7sus4 E7sus4
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
A A E7sus4 E7sus4
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream.

Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire

Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall

I'd love to turn you on.

About this song

"A Day in the Life" is a song by the British rock band The Beatles, written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, credited to Lennon/McCartney. The song appears as the final track on their album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The song includes portions originally authored independently by Lennon and McCartney, and two cacophonous, part-improvised, orchestral crescendos. Lennon was inspired by newspaper articles on the death of Tara Browne, and a civic plan to fill four thousand potholes in Blackburn.
