"I've Just Seen a Face" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
I've just seen a face,
I can't forget the time or place
Where we just met.
She's just the girl for me
And I want all the world to see
We've met, mm-mm-mm-m'mm-mm

Had it been another day
I might have looked the other way
And I'd have never been aware.
But as it is I'll dream of her
Tonight, di-di-di-di'n'di.

Falling, yes I am falling,
And she keeps calling
Me back again.

I have never known
The like of this, I've been alone
And I have missed things
And kept out of sight
But other girls were never quite
Like this, di-di-di-di'n'di.

Falling, yes I am falling,
And she keeps calling
Me back again.

Yeah!
Bup-a-lup-bup!

Falling, yes I am falling,
And she keeps calling
Me back again.

I've just seen a face,
I can't forget the time or place
Where we just met.
She's just the girl for me
And I want all the world to see
We've met, mm-mm-mm-di-di-di.

Falling, yes I am falling,
And she keeps calling
Me back again.

Falling, yes I am falling,
And she keeps calling
Me back again.

Oh, falling, yes I am falling,
And she keeps calling
Me back again.

    General CommentI just love the beat of this song and how the lyrics just sort of follow each other without breaks. I think it's pretty genious how he did that without having them run into each other in a jumble. Very good job, Paul!

    General CommentI think you're right - it's about love at first sight.

    I love the acoustic feel and the fast pace. The way he rolls the words off his tongue without stuttering is amazing. Macca's sense of timing on this song is incredible.

    I've always thought the chorus of this song (falling, yes I'm falling) sounds like a nice surpise. Not sure why, maybe it's because it goes from being a very good song to being a GREAT song once the chorus starts.

    General CommentOh, one more thing. The song title. Sure, we all take it for granted now (especially if you've heard it as many times as I have) but it's really an unusual title for a long song, no? Not what one would usually expect for a title. Weird. Quirky. I love it.
