"Eight Days a Week" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
Oh, I need your love, babe
Guess you know it's true
Hope you need my love babe
Just like I need you

Hold me, love me, hold me, love me
I ain't got nothing but love, babe
Eight days a week

Love you every day, girl
Always on my mind
One thing I can say, girl
Love you all the time

Hold me, love me, hold me, love me
I ain't got nothing but love, girl
Eight days a week

Eight days a week
I love you
Eight days a week
Is not enough to show I care

Ooh I need your love, babe
Guess you know it's true
Hope you need my love babe
Just like I need you

Hold me, love me, hold me, love me
I ain't got nothing but love, babe
Eight days a week

Eight days a week
I love you
Eight days a week
is not enough to show I care

Love you every day, girl
Always on my mind
One thing I can say girl
Love you all the time

Hold me, love me, hold me, love me
I ain't got nothing but love, babe
Eight days a week
Eight days a week
Eight days a week

    General Commentthis was their eighth no. 1 single, and seems like it's a little exaggerated

    General CommentThis song has a kind of innocence to it that makes it impossible to not like. The prospect of loving somebody forever, for eight days a week, epitomizes a loveable naivety that made so many Beatles songs great.

    General CommentPaul first heard the phrase "eight days a week" from a substitute chauffeur who drove him to John's home in Weybridge that day. Asked by Paul if he had had a busy recent schedule, the driver replied "Busy?! I've been working eight days a week." This was the first Beatles track with a faded intro rather than a faded outro.

    General CommentSelf explanitory, I love it, love isn't a job, it's a privelage, and eight days a week expresses its power to stretch out beyond the scientific limitations (physics - seven days...duh).

    The Beatles are sonic candy, nothin' better...

    General CommentThe Film "A Hard Days Night" was originally going to be called "Eight Arms to Hold You" (shit title) so Paul McCartney wrote this to be the lead track.
    When they decided to change the title to "A Hard Days Night" John Lennon legged it home to write the title song to get it in before Paul could come up with a new song.
