And a time in a town when The Beatles were around
Your parents made love without making a sound
Sgt. Pepper said, "Hey, come see my band play
I'll put you on the list so you won't have to pay"
That was the first sound you heard
A sly trombone and a lead saxophone
You'd hear it again and again

And a song on the street is where you and I meet
You want to play cards and I tell you not to cheat
I sit down on a chair, you got spray in your hair
I say you look old and you think I'm unfair
But you'll never going to change
You'll play the sly trombone and lead saxophone
You'd do it again and again

And in the corner of your eye
There's a tear that comes out with a sigh
It's not the first time you felt this way
And hopefully this isn't the last
You'll have birthdays again and again

And a time in a town when The Beatles were around
Your parents made love without making a sound
They made you
