  • 3 Penny Lane
  • 4 I'm Only Sleeping
  • In Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs
    Of every head he's had the pleasure to know
    And all the people that come and go
    Stop and say hello

    On the corner is a banker with a motorcar
    The little children laugh at him behind his back
    And the banker never wears a mack
    In the pouring rain, very strange

    Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
    There beneath the blue suburban skies
    I sit, and meanwhile back

    In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
    And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen
    He likes to keep his fire engine clean
    It's a clean machine

    Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
    A four of fish and finger pies
    In summer, meanwhile back

    Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout
    The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
    And tho' she feels as if she's in a play
    She is anyway

    In Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer
    We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
    And then the fireman rushes in
    From the pouring rain, very strange

    Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes
    There beneath the blue suburban skies
    I sit, and meanwhile back
    Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes
    There beneath the blue suburban skies
    Penny Lane
