"Please Please Me" as written by and Mccartney Lennon....
Last night I said these words to my girl
I know you never even try, girl
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Please, please me, woah yeah, like I please you

You don't need me to show the way, love
Why do I always have to say, love
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Please, please me, woah yeah, like I please you

I don't want to sound complaining
But you know there's always rain in my heart
I do all the pleasing with you,
It's so hard to reason with you
Woah yeah, why do you make me blue?

Last night I said these words to my girl
I know you never even try, girl
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Please, please me, woah yeah, like I please you
Woah yeah, like I please you
Woah yeah, like I please you

    General CommentI think the girl mentioned in the song is just being apathetic. She's accepting gifts and dates, but she isn't reciprocating.

    That's enough to make any guy blue.

    General Commentjust a post so the last comment on a beatles song won't be "the song is about a blowjob".

    although it could be interpreted this way.. its probably not.. anw an amazing song. paul's backgroud vocals are rly good.. and john.. just amazing

    General CommentJohn wrote this as an attempt to write a song like Roy Orbison. Originally it was much slower, if you can imagine singing it at the same speed as "Crying" or "In Dreams." George Martin rejected it as a single, so they went home and reworked it, sped it up, and it became their first Number One.

    It wasn't meant to be sexual; just a plea by a guy to his girlfriend to pick up her end of the relationship.

    General CommentPPM was one of those tracks which sounded innocent, but had a deep subtext. More of that anon.

    The chorus was suggested by Bing Crosby's 1932 song "Please", written by Robin/Rainger, which starts off by investigating the relationship between the homophones "please" and "pleas" - "oh please, lend your little ear to my pleas | Send a ray of cheer to my pleas | Tell me that you love me too".

    Some, most notably Robert Christgau, music editor of New York's Village Voice, have suggested that this is an explicit allusion to oral sex.

    Suddenly, I'm never going to view this song in the same light ever again...

    General CommentI hate to think the Beatles would sing that blatantly about something sexual like that... I wonder what they would say about the song though.
