With A Little Help From My Friends Lyrics | Reviewer: Ric Web | 9/19/13

Don't get me wrong, I have loved the Beatles since I was 16 just the other day, in 1963. {My three beautiful kids are jealous of me because I was here in that momentous time!
My favourite Beatles in order were, Paul John George and Ringo. Fifty years later the order is Ringo George and a toss up between John and Paul! Now I'm 66 and still know that there will never ever be a band or anyone who will come near them for all eternity!
I truly believe that everyone has their own interpretation of every song, well this is mine. Let’s agree to disagree, maybe?
I can relate to this song so much, the words are so clever. "What do you see when you turn out the light, I can't tell you but I know it's mine!" to me he sees nothing and that nothing is mine!
"Oh I get by with a little help from my friends,
Mmm,I get high with a little help from my friends,"
Definitely drugs and booze {my friends that help me get by are Beer {Crown Larger} and Booze}

Do you need anybody?
I just need someone to love.
Could it be anybody?
I want somebody to love.

Mate, I could go on and on,

love Ric xxx


why is my friend so mean | Reviewer: rotha | 3/12/13

I think the line your thinking of from "Lucy in the sky" is "Plasticine porters and looking glass ties" I personally think this song has something to do with the similarities of your imagination while on LSD, compared to a child vibrant imagination. Hints the verses being about an LSD trip, then the reference to his Son's drawing in the chorus.

Is it so hard to see? | Reviewer: Diego | 1/17/13

You seriously don't realize he's talking about masturbation? It's clear as day.

"What do you see when you turn out the light?
I can't tell you, but I know it's mine.
Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends"

Yeah, with a little help from his five friends in his hand that is.

Oh the Beatles. | Reviewer: Be Real | 12/9/12

I assure you it's not a metaphoric high... Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.. LSD. Happiness is a warm gun... Heroin/ Morphine. Beatles :-D. Love em and don't condone drug use, but they had a deeper message than everyone thinks.

Not drugs | Reviewer: Zach | 10/16/12

I think that it's a metaphorical high he talks about. "Are you sad because you're on your own? No I get by with a little help from my friends".

Gettin' by with friends making his spirits high bein happy

Epic Era with the Beatles | Reviewer: LEHernandez | 2/18/12

The Fab four were such an impact however one looks at it. Whether drugs, sex or anti war messages, this group struck the music scene with such force that even the elderly noticed the sound waves. Of course we all have different views as well opinions on just about everything that happened in our time. One thing is certain, we cannot ignore the fact that The Beatles will always be known no matter how much some folks try otherwise. Cheers!

This is a great song...one of the classics..but then what song by them isn't? Here is the thing, the only people who are having problems with this song and others are stuck in the mud 80's BAPTISTS
. Nobody cares about drug references or backmasking except for these losers who have nothing better to do with their time. GET A LIFE AND STOP BEING THE WASTE OF SPACE AND AIR THAT YOU ARE NOW.

this is the best song i've ever heard. Paul hit a grandslam, scored a touchdown and hit a buzzer beating 3. Ringo sang better than he ever has before or since. I love the lyrics so much. It's a great telling of a rockstar's life. It really is. Thank you for being born Fab Four. You changed my life and this song is the greatest ever written and performed. Makes sense it would be on an album this epicly masterful

lucy in the sky with diamonds is not a drug song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/31/11

if you look at the lyrics you would see its a love song of sorts, secondly Johns son Julian drew a picture of a maid flying in the sky, when John asked his son what it was he replied its Lucy in the sky with diamonds, hence the name of the song. with a little help from my friends isnt that trippy either although he does say " I get high with a little help from my friends" referencing pot.

Love | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/27/11

I actually LOVE The Beatles!! This song I believe was written slightly influenced by drugs, but that was the 60s. Check out Lucy if you think this was strongly influenced by drugs is all I have to say!! "Celophane flowers of yellow and green.." try say that wasn't drug influenced!! Haha!!!!

Everything they ever said or sang has been dissected to the nth degree, looking for hidden messages! Just listen to the MUSIC that is the MESSAGE! And never forget "Reality leaves a lot to the imagination"!

:D | Reviewer: c r i s z o | 8/14/10

i think this song is awesome, and that's about it. and yes, this song must has something to do with drugs; hence the verse "i get high with a little help from my friends." but others than that, fuck off you guys. any different way you interpret this song, it's still the best. the beatles kick ass. :P

Okay | Reviewer: Anon | 7/26/10

Yes, the song is about friends. Yes, it's probably about drugs too. Songs are about interpretation, and not one single person in this debate has any clue what the Beatles were actually thinking when they wrote this one. Jesus christ...

Great! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/20/10

i love this song do much. it has so many true messages in it. the only thing is i have done research on it, and to the people saying he mentions drugs in this song, he was referring to a natural high, which means being happy.

Do you need anybody? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/7/10

I'm sorry that I am the one who is writing this; however those commentators who are saying that we need to let go of the Beatles and stop being "ignorant pompass"... you are obviously the one who needs a reality check. Beatles are about peace, love, and fun! this song is great, no matter what decade you are in! In addition, I know what good music is, and if you don't like it don't bother us who do.
