The Fab Four Fiasco
In this age of 'Instant Karma' happiness is turned away,
'All you need is love' to guide you well at least that's what they say,
'In my life' I've witnessed miracles the ghost of 'Yesterday',
When a certain 'Sgt Pepper' tried to teach the band to play.
Back then 'Lucy' wore her diamonds to the big top on the green,
With her uncle 'Mr Mustard' who was tight and very mean,
Next to them was 'Mother Mary', 'Sister Pam' and 'Mr Kite',
And a psychopath called 'Maxwell who was hidden out of sight.
'Rita' made it in the city said 'Tomorrow never knows',
Made a deal with 'Doctor Robert' who was struck off years ago,
Sent a message to the 'Taxman' saying that he shouldn't come,
While the 'Nowhere Man' was chanting 'Come together' everyone.
Down in 'Strawberry Fields' they're singing and they're sing forever more,
'Rocky Racoon's' busy selling Gideon's bibles door to door,
'Jo-jo's' busy rolling reefers for the roadies in the band,
Thought 'Loretta' was a woman but she was another man.
The sixties have now vanished 'Egg-men' are no longer found,
'Sexy Sadie's' on a hillside on the other side of town,
'Bill' has married his 'Dear Prudence' brought themselves a bungalow,
Now they're playing Beatles records they brought 'All those years ago'.
Can't imagine all the hardships poor Ms Rigby' would endure,
Lived a lonely sad existence had a death so immature,
'Michelle' gently placed the 'Flowers in the dirt' and quoted Paul,
Saying that he won't forget her when his 'Memory's almost full'.
'Molly's' still with pretty 'Desmond' sharing all her jewels and clothes,
'Desmond' has a host of bookings now transgender is in vogue,
Poor 'McKenzie's' lost his calling they defrocked him in the spring,
What a joy and what a blessing to hear all the Beatles sing
