The first verse and chorus of "She's Leaving Home":
Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins Silently closing her bedroom door Leaving the note that she hoped would say more She goes downstairs to the kitchen Clutching her handkerchief Quietly turning the backdoor key Stepping outside she is free
She We gave her most of our lives Is leaving Sacrificed most of our lives Home We gave her everything money could buy She's leaving home after living alone for so many years Bye, bye
I learned to harmonize from singing along with Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel records from the age of five. Influenced? Yeah, you could say so. The Beatles were the creators of some of the most sophisticated and satisfying rock 'n' roll ever made.
