She Loves You

Fifty years ago today,
The Beatles sang a song
That started Beatlemania
And we all tagged along.

“She Loves You” was recorded
And the lads took to the stage;
In suits and shiny bowl-cut hair,
They soon became the rage.

I watch the film of screaming girls
And know just how they felt,
For when those Beatle “Whooos” were sung,
I thought my heart would melt.

Some music does that – takes us back
And, like a sleight-of-hand,
We’re instantly transported,
With the past at our command.

The years drop off and so does all
That’s happened in-between.
“She Loves You” hits the radio
And I’m again thirteen.
