The Beatles Song Of The Day: “Thank You Girl”

The Beatles Song of the Day is “Thank You Girl.” “Thank You Girl” was the B-side to the third Beatles single “From Me To You” which was released in April of 1963. “Thank You Girl” was going to be the third Beatles single until they came up with “From Me To You.” Both songs were recorded on the same day March 5th, 1963, the only day they would have free for weeks. It was recorded at Abbey Road. John and Paul wrote the song together. John Lennon: double tracked vocal, rhythm guitar, harmonica/ Paul McCartney: harmony vocal and bass guitar/ George Harrison: lead guitar and harmony vocal/ Ringo Starr: drums. Producer: George Martin. Both John and Paul would later say that the song was a knock off but its pretty good rock and roll for that period of time but the decision to go with “From Me To You” on the A-side of the single was a good one. “Thank You Girl” was written by John and Paul to their female fans.

“Thank You Girl” {Lennon-McCartney}

Oh, oh, you’ve been good to me
You made me glad When I was blue
And eternally I’ll always be In love with you
And all I gotta do Is thank you girl, thank you girl
I could tell the world
A thing or two about our love
I know little girl
Only a fool would doubt our love
And all I gotta do Is thank you girl, thank you girl
Thank you girl for loving me
The way that you do (Way that you do)
That’s the kind of love
That is too good to be true
And all I gotta do Is thank you girl, thank you girl
Oh, oh, you’ve been good to me
You made me glad
When I was blue
And eternally I’ll always be In love with you
And all I gotta do Is thank you girl, thank you girl
Oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh Oh, oh
