"Weight Of The World" as written by Brian Patrick O'doherty and Luis Federico Velez....
Maybe your daddy never held you like he should
Maybe your mama just held on the best she could
Every soul has a secret, give it away or keep it
But yesterday's gone so tell me why

You carry the weight, the weight of the world
It's breakin' you down on your back like a boulder
Before it's too late, get rid of it girl
Get it off your shoulder, I know you've been used
But you gotta lose the weight of the world

Maybe I haven't always been there just for you
Maybe I try but then, I got my own life too
Every heart has a hunger
I'm not getting any younger
I got all the crosses I can bear

Don't gimme the weight, the weight of the world
It's breakin' me down on my back like a boulder
Before it's too late, get rid of it girl
Get it off of my shoulder, you know I've been used
And I gotta lose the weight of the world

It all comes down to who you crucify
You either kiss the future or the past goodbye
We could fly so high

But we carry the world, the weight of the world
It's breakin' us down on our backs like a boulder
Before it's too late, get rid of it girl
Get it off of our shoulders, we've all been used
And we gotta lose the weight of the world

It's takin' us down and the night's growin' colder
Just blame it on fate, that was yesterday girl
And we're just growin' older, we've all been used
Now it's time to lose the weight of the world
The weight of the world
The weight of the world

    General CommentIt's a pity no one commented on this song.
    It's one of my favourites! The melody is wonderful, the lyrics are just great - I think they don't need an explanation. I often listen to this song when I'm sad.
    Ringo is one of the most talented yet underrated musicians of our time.
