"Come And Get It" as written by and Paul M. Krispijn Remco R. Prins....
You've got to get it mm mm
You've got to get it don't forget
It doesn't come around again
You've got to get it mm mm
You've got to get it and you've got to get it good

Once I had a little Spanish guitar
The neighbors told me I could go pretty far
Well I came and I went
And my guitar got bent

But I discovered that the people who love
Are what we need if we're to get up above it all
And that's that
Unless the world is flat

I wanna get it mm mm
I wanna get it just in case
It doesn't come around again
I wanna get it mm mm
I wanna get it and I wanna get it good

Pardon me if I've been misunderstood
I wanna get it while the going is good
The telephone rang
About a song I sang

The life of Cadillac and ultra for sure
Is automatic for the lady demure
She came and she went
Without a single dent

You got to get it mm mm
You got to get it just in case
It doesn't come around again
You got to get it mm mm
You got to get it and you got to get it good

I hear you
Go cat

Come on, let's get it mm mm
You got to get it don't forget
It doesn't come around again
You've got to get it mm mm
You've got to get it and you've got to get it good

    General Commentyes, Paul did a great demo of this song (which is included on Anthology 3). I always liked the irony that a big named star like Paul McCartney 'gave' a hit song to a group and the song had lines like "If you want it, here it is come and get it", and "will you walk away from a fool and his money". Seems like an autobiographical song about itself.

    General CommentThis is One Damn Freakin Awesome Song where Paul McCartney doesnt actually talk about LOVE whence he should fit a love theme with this song- how disappointing?! He has a trillion other songs about the subject of love (believe me its too many) but not on this particular one where it would sound perfect- you know how he says "If you want it, here it is come and get it, ummm ... make your mind up fast" HE COULD BE TALKING ABOUT GIVING HIS LOVE TO SOMEBODY AS AN ULTIMATUM- wouldnt that be genius ;)

    General CommentThere's a version of Paul doing Goodbye which he gave to Mary Hopkins. Another big hit he gave away. And World Without Love by Peter and Gordon was pretty good too.
