Song lyrics
What would you think if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

What do I do when my love is away
Does it worry you to be alone?
How do I feel by the end of the day
Are you sad because you're on your own

No, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody
I need somebody to love
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love

Would you believe in a love at first sight
Yes, I'm certain that it happens all the time
What do you see when you turn out the light
I can't tell you but I know it's mine

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody
I just need someone to love
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Yes I get by with a little help from my friends
With a little help from my friends

i like this one, kudos to ringo, this was one of the few songs where he sang lead vocals. and about the meaning, maybe drugs might have something to do with it, but maybe its just about a support system? u know, not EVERYTHING the beatles did has to be about drugs or sex or have weird hidden meanings... whatev, this song is great

It's Definitely NOT about Drugs.

Its about masturbatin'.

His Friends are his Fingers!!!

ISNT IT OBVIOUS?

[lyrics=]What do I do when my love is away
Does it worry you to be alone?
How do I feel by the end of the day
Are you sad because you're on your own

No, I get by with a little help from my friends
[/lyrics]

THEN

[lyrics=]What do you see when you turn out the light
I can't tell you but I know it's mine

[/lyrics]

AND

[lyrics=]Do you need anybody
I just need someone to love
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
[/lyrics]

The lyric was made when Paul McCartney's girlfriend at the time was Away.. so maybe he was a little needy..!!

What do you people think?

this song has such a simple melody (its reali just an ascending and descending b flat concert scale) but its so catchy.

As much as I love this version, I prefer the Joe C. version.

Me too! Does anyone have a theory of what it's about, apart from the drug one? A quote I heard gave me one but everyone just seems to think it's about drugs. Maybe it is, I don't know.
