PLEASE PLEASE ME

Original The Beatles version


Last night I said these words to my girl
I know you never even try, girl
Come on (come on)
Come on (come on)
Come on (come on)
Come on (come on)
Please please me, whoa yeah, like I please you

You don't need me to show the way, love
Why do I always have to say "love"
Come on (come on)
Come on (come on)
Come on (come on)
Come on (come on)
Please please me, whoa yeah, like I please you

I don't wanna sound complaining
But you know there's always rain in my heart (in my heart)
I do all the pleasing with you, it's so hard to reason
With you, whoa yeah, why do you make me blue

Last night I said these words to my girl
I know you never even try, girl
Come on (come on)
Come on (come on)
Come on (come on)
Come on (come on)
Please please me, whoa yeah, like I please you
(Please) me, whoa yeah, like I please you
(Please) me, whoa yeah, like I please you
