"A Hard Day's Night" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
It's been a hard day's night, and I been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright

You know I work all day to get you money to buy you things
And it's worth it just to hear you say you're going to give me everything
So why on earth should I moan, 'cause when I get you alone
You know I feel OK

When I'm home everything seems to be right
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight

It's been a hard day's night, and I been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright, oww

So why on earth should I moan, 'cause when I get you alone
You know I feel OK

When I'm home everything seems to be right
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight

It's been a hard day's night, and I been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright
You know I feel alright
You know I feel alright

    General CommentI think it's funny that nobody seems to have even mentioned the meaning of the song. It's about spending all night having sex, unless I am mistaken.
    It's a great song. Although I do prefer their later work, I have yet to hear a Beatles song I didn't like.

    General Commentjohn lennon said in an interview that this song is actually about prostitution. which is why he wrote the lyrics "ive been working like a dog." the man hasnt had enough money to support his wife's shopping addiction. so he has to resort to working the streets and keep his job as the ceo of a major corporation as well.

    General CommentThe title was taken from a statement Ringo made while filming the movie. He was walking out of the studio after a long day of filming and said, "It's been a hard day.....day is night." after he looked up and noticed it was night time. It is a perfect title song for this wonderful movie.

    General CommentThis was a great song by the Beatles taken from Ringo even though he didn't mean it. Too bad Terry Bradshaw had to get the lyrics wrong at the super bowl. Man he's stupid.

    General CommentThe Beatles early music wasn't nearly as good as their later music.

    General CommentI agree with IanoDublin...I like the Beatles from 67-70. In the earlier years I think most of there songs sounded alike...

    This song is okee I gues...not one of the better ones.

    General CommentThis song was one of first and one that climbed the charts quickly. I do agree with others that belive that the beatles had better material in the later years. But we have to understand that in the beginning they were told what to sing and what not to sing, you know what was popular at that time.

    I still think this song was pretty good.

    General CommentI have the 1967-1970 collection. I don't care about the earlier years. They stink. It's just dippy late 50s/early 60s pop. Sorry, but yeah. That's the way it is.

    I like songs a lot when they have people arguing here over the meaning. The more poppy music gets, the thinner the lyrics and you can just tell exactly what they mean by reading them. Songs like I am The Walrus, while that is just some trippy ramblings, who knows, it might mean a lot. I write very deep when I've just been baking. So how many pop stars have you heard of doing any sort of drugs, even alcohol?
