Yes, I'm lonely
Wanna die
Yes, I'm lonely
Wanna die
If I ain't dead already, whoo
Girl, you know the reason why

In the morning
Wanna die
In the evening
Wanna die
If I ain't dead already, whoo
Girl, you know the reason why

My mother was of the sky
My father was of the Earth
But I am of the Universe
And you know what it's worth
I'm lonely
Wanna die
If I ain't dead already, whoo
Girl, you know the reason why

The eagle picks my eyes
The worm he licks my bone
Feel so suicidal
Just like [[Bob Dylan:Ballad Of A Thin Man|Dylan's Mr. Jone]]
Lonely
Wanna die
If I ain't dead already, whoo
Girl, you know the reason why

The black cloud crossed my mind
Blue mist 'round my soul
Feel so suicidal
Even hate my rock and roll
Wanna die
Yeah, wanna die
If I ain't dead already, whoo
Girl, you know the reason why

(Turn it up)

Yes, I'm lonely
Wanna die
Yes, I'm lonely
Wanna die
If I ain't dead already, whoo
Girl, you know the reason why

In the morning
Wanna die
In the evening

Awesome.
This is one of those songs where you don't need to ask "I wonder if Paul wrote it or John wrote it?".
Years ago I listened to the White Album, picked 1/2 of the songs which I liked, and put that version onto my MP3 player. Now I realize I will have to give the full version another listen.
The Beatles at their bluesiest.  Whodda' thunk it?
The Lads were never more badazz than this. Woo Hoo! If you DIG be sure to check out the Dirty Mack version John did with a few mates on the Rock and Roll Circus.


Everybody in my church loves this song...

 
This is a great John Lennon rocker and the Beatles recorded it all playing live together in this really small room! :cheers: :clap: :D
