The Beatles Song Of The Day: “She’s A Woman”

The Beatles Song Of The Day is “She’s A Woman.” “She’s A Woman” is the b-side to The Beatles “I Feel Fine.” Written by Paul McCartney the song peaked at #4 on the American  Top 100 charts. Some say that Paul wrote this song on the spot in the studio. The most memorable thing in this song is the bass guitar playing and the volume of that bass guitar played by one Paul McCartney. The Beatles also thought it was funny that they snuck the line ‘turns me on’ past the censors. Paul sang the song in the high pitched Little Richard like scream he would use on a number of recordings. The Beatles would play this in concerts in 1964-65. It was a good uptempo number to play after playing a slower song. John Lennon: rhythm guitar/ Paul McCartney: vocal, bass guitar and piano/ George Harrison: lead guitar/ Ringo Starr: drums, chocalho. The song was recorded on October 8th, 1964 at Abbey Road. Producer: George Martin.

“She’s A Woman”- {Lennon-McCartney}

My love don’t give me presents
I know that she’s no peasant
Only ever has to give me
Love forever and forever
My love don’t give me presents
Turn me on when I get lonely
People tell me that she’s only
Fooling, I know she isn’t
She don’t give the boys the eye
She hates to see me cry
She is happy just to hear me say
That I will never leave her
She don’t give the boys the eye
She will never make me jealous
Gives me all her time as well as
Loving, don’t ask me why
She’s a woman who understands
She’s a woman who loves her man
My love don’t give me presents
I know that she’s no peasant
Only ever has to give me love
Forever and forever
My love don’t give me presents
Turn me on when I get lonely
People tell me that she’s only
Fooling, I know she isn’t
She’s a woman who understands
She’s a woman who loves her man
My love don’t give me presents
I know that she’s no peasant
Only ever has to give me
Love forever and forever
My love don’t give me presents
Turn me on when I get lonely
People tell me that she’s only
Fooling, I know she isn’t
She’s a woman, she’s a woman She’s a woman, she’s a woman
