COME TOGETHER

Original The Beatles version


Here comes old flat top, he come grooving up slowly
He got Joo Joo eye-ball, he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker, he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine, he got toe jam football
He got monkey finger, he shoot Coca-Cola
He say, "I know you, you know me"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together, right now, over me

He bag production, he got walrus gumboot,
He got O-no side board, he one spinal cracker
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his armchair, you can feel his disease
Come together, right now, over me

Right!

Come!

Come

He roller coaster, he got early warning
He got Muddy Water, he one Mojo filter
He say, "one and one and one is three"
Got to be good looking 'cause he so hard to see
Come together, right now, over me

Ah!

Come together, yeah
Come together, yeah
Come together, yeah
Come together, yeah
Come together, yeah
Come together, yeahhh
Come together, yeahhh
Ahhh
Come together, yeah
Come together, yeahhh
