"Bad to Me" as written by and John/mc Cartney Lennon....
If you ever leave me I'll be sad and blue
Don't you ever leave me, I'm so in love with you

The birds in the sky would be sad and lonely
If they knew that I'd lost my one and only
They'd be sad, don't be bad to me

The leaves on the trees would be softly sighin
If they heard from the breeze that you left me cryin'
They'd be sad, don't be bad to me

But I know you won't leave me 'cos you told me so
And I've no intention of letting you go
Just as long as you let me know you won't be bad to me

So the birds in the sky won't be sad and lonely
'Cause they know that I got my one and only
They'll be glad you're not bad to me

    General CommentI've heard people say that John Lennon played this to Brian Epstein when they went on their "mysterious" trip to Barcelona. By the way, do you think they really did anything there? I've been trying to find other people's opinions.

    General CommentBrain Epstein managed other groups besides the Beatles, including Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas. Both John and Paul wrote songs that they gave to Brian's other acts to record. I agree that this is a very sweet song, but you need to understand that when it was written, John did not feel that such songs were right for his image. Too tender and sentimental for a macho rocker from Liverpool. That's why John wrote two songs that he gave George to sing: "Do You Want To Know A Secret" and "I'm Happy Just To Dance With You".

    General CommentBad to me is when someone has a girl/boyfriend and tries to bullshit another person when he has no intention of anything! That's BAD TO ME. Good song. Anything beats Yellow Submarine...unless Kayne West is rapping (or whatever it is he attempts to do offkey)
