ELEANOR RIGBY

The Beatles

 

Ah look at all the lonely people


ah look at all the lonely people

 

Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice


in the church where a wedding has been


lives in a dream


waits at the window, wearing the face


that she keeps in a jar by the door


who is it for

 

All the lonely people
where do they all come from?


All the lonely people
where do they all belong?

 

Father Mckenzie, writing the words


of a sermon that no one will hear


no one comes near


look at him working, darning his socks


in the night when there's nobody there


what does he care

 

All the lonely people
where do they all come from?


All the lonely people
where do they all belong?

 

Ah look at all the lonely people


ah look at all the lonely people

 

Eleanor Rigby, died in the church


and was buried along with her name


nobody came


Father Mckenzie, wiping the dirt


from his hands as he walks from the grave


no one was saved

 

All the lonely people
where do they all come from?


All the lonely people
where do they all belong?
