334 – The Beatles – Tell me why (1964)



Escrita por John Lennon mas creditada à Lennon/McCartney, foi gravada em 27 de fevereiro de 1964. Lançada no album A hard day’s night, em 10 de julho de 1964. 

John disse que era uma canção parecida com as dos grupos das meninas negras de New York. Com uma estrutura básica de doo wop. 

John fez os vocais principais e tocou guitarra ritmica. Paul fez backing vocals e tocou baixo. George Harrison tocou guitarra solo e fez backing vocals. Ringo tocou bateria e George Martin tocou piano. 

Foi regravada pelos Beach Boys, em 1965, por April Wine em 1982 e pelos Punkles em 2002. 

A letra:

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me
Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

Well I gave you everything I had
But you left me sitting on my own
Did you have to treat me oh so bad
All I do is hang my head and moan

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me
Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

If there's something I have said or done
Tell me what and I'll apologise
If you don't really can't go on
Holding back these tears in my eyes

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me
Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me

Well I beg you on my bended knees
If you'll only listen to my pleas
Is there anything I can do
Cos I really can't stand it, I'm so in love with you

Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me
Tell me why you cried, and why you lied to me
