622 – The Beatles – Baby you're a rich man (1967)

Escrita por John Lennon e Paul McCartney, foi gravada em 11 de maio de 1967, noOlimpic Studios, em Londres. Foi lançada em 7 de julho de 1967 num compacto que tinha All you need is love como Lado A. Foi a primeira vez que os Beatles gravaram uma canção fora dos estúdios EMI da Abbey Road. Foram duas músicas forjadas em uma.

Ela fala do beautiful people, que era um termo que os hippies da california usavam pra descrever a eles mesmos. Mas a mensagem central é que todos nós somos ricos de alguma forma, não adianta ficar reclamando.

John cantou, tocou piano e clavioline. Paul fez backing vocals, tocou baixo e piano. George Harrison fez backing vocals, tocou guitarra solo e baeu palmas. Ringo tocou bateria, pandeiro, maracas e bateu palmas. Mick Jagger fez backing vocals.

A letra:

How does it feel to be
One of the beautiful people?
Now that you know who you are.
What do you want to be?
And have you travelled very far?
Far as the eyes can see

How does it feel to be
One of the beautiful people?
How often have you been there?
Often enough to know
What did you see when you were there?
Nothing that doesn't show
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man too
You keep all your money in a big brown bag inside a zoo
What a thing to do
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man too

How does it feel to be
One of the beautiful people?
Tuned to a natural E
Happy to be that way
Now that you've found another key
What are you going to play?
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man too
You keep all your money in a big brown bag inside a zoo
What a thing to do
Baby, baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man too
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man
Baby, baby you're a rich man too
