Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes and she's gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Oh

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking-horse people eat marshmallow pies
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
That grow so incredibly high

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds and you're gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Oh

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds and you're gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Oh

Picture yourself on a train in a station
With plasticine porters with looking-glass ties
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Oh

Lucy in the sky with diamonds (Lucy)
Lucy in the sky with diamonds (oh, Lucy)
Lucy in the sky with diamonds (oh, Lucy)
Oh

Lucy in the sky with diamonds (Lucy)
Lucy in the sky with diamonds (oh, Lucy)
Lucy in the sky with diamonds (oh, Lucy)
Oh

Lucy in the sky with diamonds (Lucy)
Lucy in the sky with diamonds (oh, Lucy)
Lucy in the sky with diamonds (oh, Lucy)
Oh

Lucy in the sky with diamonds (hey, oh, Lucy)
Lucy in the sky with diamonds (oh, Lucy)
Lucy in the sky with diamonds (oh, Lucy)
