John Lennon Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy) Lyrics

Last updated: 02/03/2013 04:16:47 PM

Close your eyes
Have no fear
The monster's gone
He's on the run and your daddy's here

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way
It's getting better and better

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Out on the ocean sailing away
I can hardly wait
To see you come of age
But I guess we'll both just have to be patient
'Cause it's a long way to go
A hard row to hoe
Yes it's a long way to go
But in the meantime

Before you cross the street
Take my hand
Life is what happens to you
While you're busy making other plans

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way
It's getting better and better

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy (x3)

Darling, darling, darling
Darling Sean

An unforggetable trauma | Reviewer: Genival Gomes | 2/1/13

Lennon seems to show that he hasn't overcame the suffering from the trauma of his mother's death who was hit by a car on the street.

"Before you cross the street, take my hand. Life is what happens to you..."


By far, one of the best musicians ever | Reviewer: Nicole | 10/31/12

Beautiful song, Lennon was one the best lyric writer, musician and artist ever. His songs have always been very profound and melodic. I like the echo made in the words "ocean" and "patient" you can listen that it sounds slightly like the pronunciation of the name Sean.


"Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)" - masterpiece(?) | Reviewer: Chris Cowsill | 6/29/07

The author's long-time song-writing partner Paul McCartney once said this was his favourite post-Beatle Lennon composition. What else needs to be said?

This was apparently written after a boating trip in the late-'70s, when Lennon wrote several of the tracks that would eventually be featured on the (almost posthumous) "Double Fantasy" album.

"Life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans."
