The Beatles - "Get Back"




"It’s easy to look back now, four and half decades after The Beatles dissolved, and assume everything they did was part of some mapped- out logical plan, a series of historic set-pieces that now fit a trajectory we’ve all had time to evaluate. But it wasn’t. A lot of it was spontaneous experiment, perfectly preserved in this box-set and its extras and rarities. All of it was achieved at a fierce, creative pace that still seems barely believable. In every split-second of their staggeringly productive reign, they wrote, recorded, toured, filmed, promoted and tried to live the semblance of a normal life." - Mark Ellen





Lyrics


Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner

But he knew it wouldn't last

Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona

For some California grass


Get back, get back

Get back to where you once belonged

Get back, get back

Get back to where you once belonged

Get back Jojo, go home


Get back, get back

Back to where you once belonged

Get back, get back

Back to where you once belonged

Get back Jo


Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman

But she was another man

All the girls around her say she's got it coming

But she gets it while she can


Get back, get back

Get back to where you once belonged

Get back, get back

Get back to where you once belonged

Get back Loretta, go home


Get back, get back

Get back to where you once belonged

Get back, get back

Get back to where you once belonged


Get back, get back

Get back to where you once belonged

Get back, get back, get back
