"Shout" as written by Graham Bath, Steven Hopgood, Nicholas Hughes, Carl Sentance and Phil Vokins....
Shout
Shout
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on
I'm talking to you
Come on

Shout
Shout
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on
I'm talking to you
Come on

In violent times
You shouldn't have to sell your soul
In black and white
They really really ought to know
Those one track minds
That took you for a working boy
Kiss them goodbye
You shouldn't have to jump for joy
You shouldn't have to shout for joy

Shout
Shout
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on
I'm talking to you
Come on

They gave you life
And in return you gave them hell
As cold as ice
I hope we live to tell the tale
I hope we live to tell the tale

Shout
Shout
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on
I'm talking to you
Come on

Shout
Shout
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on
I'm talking to you
Come on

And when you've taken down your guard
If I could change your mind
I'd really love to break your heart
I'd really love to break your heart

Shout
Shout
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on
I'm talking to you
Come on

    General CommentOf course it's a cover. The Beatles did tons of covers in the early days. This one just stands out as being a rather odd choice for The Beatles.

    General CommentThis oddity is available on Artifacts, as well as the equally odd 1985 Beatles collection Ready Steady Go, featuring some of the more weird recordings they made on the series of the same name.

    General CommentYou're forgetting The Beatles Anthology 1. But yes, it is very much an oddity. I wonder what on earth made them decide to do this song.

    General CommentThis song is funny, but quite green, don't you think?

    Anyway, singing these kinds of songs can be fun, right?

    General CommentI love that George, John and Paul each sing part of it, I wish they did that on more of their tracks! I actually really like this, weirdly.

    General Commentif the beatles did do this song, then it is a cover. It was originally done by Johny O'Keefe, an Australian singer.

    General CommentWrong! The original recording was by the Isley Brothers in 1959, later cover by, as someone said, Johnny O'Keefe a few months later, then Lulu in 1964, then The Beatles, then Otis Day and the Knights in 1978.
