Lennon/McCartney


Recorded live at Wembley, London, 13 January 1990


-"I'd like to dedicate this one to three mates of mine, George, Ringo and John
without whom it'd not have been.
Ooh!
I said, ooh!"


DAY AFTER DAY,
ALONE ON A HILL,
THE MAN WITH THE FOOLISH GRIN
IS KEEPING PERFECTLY STILL;
BUT NOBODY WANTS TO KNOW HIM,
THEY CAN SEE THAT HE'S JUST A FOOL,
AND HE NEVER GIVES AN ANSWER.

BUT THE FOOL ON THE HILL
SEES THE SUN GOING DOWN,
AND THE EYES IN HIS HEAD
SEE THE WORLD SPINNING 'ROUND.

WELL ON THE WAY,
HIS HEAD IN A CLOUD,
THE MAN OF A THOUSAND VOICES
TALKING PERFECTLY LOUD;
BUT NOBODY EVER HEARS HIM
OR THE SOUND HE APPEARS TO MAKE,
AND HE NEVER SEEMS TO NOTICE.

BUT THE FOOL ON THE HILL
SEES THE SUN GOING DOWN,
AND THE EYES IN HIS HEAD
SEE THE WORLD SPINNING 'ROUND.

DOO DOO DOO DOO,
DOO DOO DOO DOO,
DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO
DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO.

AND NOBODY SEEMS TO LIKE HIM,
THEY CAN TELL WHAT HE WANTS TO DO,
AND HE NEVER SHOWS HIS FEELINGS.

BUT THE FOOL ON THE HILL
SEES THE SUN GOING DOWN,
AND THE EYES IN HIS HEAD
SEE THE WORLD SPINNING 'ROUND.

DOO DOO DOO DOO,
DOO DOO DOO DOO,
DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO
DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO.

WELL, HE NEVER LISTENS TO THEM,
HE KNOWS THAT THEY'RE THE FOOLS,
THEY DON'T LIKE HIM.

BUT THE FOOL ON THE HILL
SEES THE SUN GOING DOWN,
AND THE EYES IN HIS HEAD
SEE THE WORLD SPINNING 'ROUND.

(OOH) DOO DOO DOO DOO,
DOO DOO DOO DOO,
DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO
DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO.

WELL, THE FOOL ON THE HILL
SEES THE SUN GOING DOWN,
AND THE EYES IN HIS HEAD
SEE THE WORLD SPINNING 'ROUND.

AROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND,
ROUND AND ROUND, ROUND AND ROUND.
ROUND AND ROUND, ROUND, ROUND, ROUND,
ROUND, ROUND, ROUND AND ROUND, YEAH.

-"I SEE THE PROMISED LAND.
I MAY NOT GO THERE WITH YOU BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW TONIGHT
THAT WE, AS A PEOPLE, WILL GET TO THE PROMISED LAND!"
OH YEAH
-"I HAD A DREAM THIS AFTERNOON!"
OOH!
-"FREE AT LAST! FREE AT LAST!"

BUT THE, BUT THE FOOL ON THE HILL
SEES THE SUN GOING DOWN.
AND THE EYES IN HIS HEAD
SEE THE WORLD SPINNING 'ROUND.

AROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND,
ROUND AND ROUND, ROUND AND ROUND.
ROUND AND ROUND, ROUND AND ROUND, ROUND,
ROUND AND ROUND, ROUND AND ROUND.

FOOL ON THE, FOOL ON THE HILL.
