The Beatles

The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. They became the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed act in the history of popular music. Their best-known lineup consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, they later utilised several genres, ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. In the early 1960s, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania", but as their songwriting grew in sophistication, they came to be perceived by many fans and cultural observers as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the era's sociocultural revolutions. more »

I've got every reason on earth to be mad
'Cause I just lost the only girl I had
If I could get my way
I'd get myself locked up today 
But I can't, so I'll cry instead 

I've got a chip on my shoulder that's bigger that my feet
I can't talk to people that I meet
If I could see you now
I'd try to make you sad somehow 
But I can't, so I'll cry instead 

Don't want to cry when there's people there
I get shy when they start to stare 
I'm gonna hide myself away
But I'll come back again someday

And when you do you'd better hide all the girls 
I'm gonna break their hearts all round the world 
Yes, I'm gonna break them in two
And show you what your lovin' man can do
 Until then I'll cry instead

Written by: John Lennon, Paul McCartney
