"Day Tripper" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
Got a good reason
For taking the easy way out
Got a good reason
For taking the easy way out now
She was a day tripper
One way ticket, yeah
It took me so long to find out
And I found out

She's a big teaser
She took me half the way there
She's a big teaser
She took me half the way there, now
She was a day tripper
One way ticket, yeah
It took me so long to find out
And I found out
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

Tried to please her
She only played one night stand
Tried to please her
She only played one night stand, now
She was a day tripper
Sunday driver, yeah
It took me so long to find out
And I found out

Day tripper, day tripper, yeah
Day tripper, day tripper, yeah
Day tripper, day tripper, yeah

    General CommentI heard in an interview with paul m. that this song was about acid. rumor had it that once you took that drug you where never quite the same and could never get back to that original high becuase it was a "...day tripper one way ticket,yeh." It is also about paul's struggled with peer pressure within that group to try it that is why it took him "so long to find out, but [he} found out."
