Oh! Darling, please believe me
I’ll never do you no harm
Believe me when I tell you
I’ll never do you no harm
Oh! Darling, if you leave me
I’ll never make it alone
Believe me when I beg you
Don’t ever leave me alone
When you told me you didn’t need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and cried
When you told me you didn’t need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and died
Oh! Darling, if you leave me
I’ll never make it alone
Believe me when I beg you
I’ll never do you no harm, no harm
When you told me you didn’t need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and cried
When you told me you didn’t need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and cried
Oh! Darling, please believe me
I’ll never let you down
Believe me when I tell you
I’ll never do you no harm

  1. It’s a song that I liked more when I was first hearing it… I would have loved to hear John give it a try but Paul did well.
