About Helter Skelter

"Helter Skelter" is a song by the English rock band the Beatles from their 1968 double album The Beatles (also known as "the White Album"). It was written by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon–McCartney. The song was a product of McCartney's attempt to create a sound as loud and dirty as possible. The Beatles' recording has been noted for its "proto-metal roar" and is considered by music historians to be a key influence in the early development of heavy metal. In 1976, the song was released as the B-side of "Got to Get You into My Life" in the United States, to promote the Capitol Records compilation Rock 'n' Roll Music. Along with other tracks from the White Album, "Helter Skelter" was interpreted by cult leader Charles Manson as a message predicting inter-racial war in the US. Manson titled his vision of this uprising "Helter Skelter" after the song. Rolling Stone magazine ranked "Helter Skelter" 52nd on its list of "The 100 Greatest Beatles Songs". Siouxsie and the Banshees, Mötley Crüe, Aerosmith, U2 and Oasis are among the artists who have covered the track, and McCartney has frequently performed it in concert.

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
I get to the top and I go for a ride
I get to the bottom and I see you again
I see you again
Do you, don't you want me to love you
I'm coming down fast but I'm miles above you
Oh tell me tell me tell me come on tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Helter skelter helter skelter
Helter skelter

Do you, won't you want me to make you
I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you
Oh tell me tell me tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Oh tell me, come on baby tell me the answer
