I've got a feeling, a feeling deep inside
Oh yeah, oh yeah
I've got a feeling, a feeling I can't hide
Oh no, oh no, oh no
Yeah, I've got a feeling

Oh please believe me, I'd hate to miss the train
Oh yeah, oh yeah
And if you leave me I won't be late again
Oh no, oh no, oh no
Yeah, I've got a feeling, yeah

All these years I've been wandering around
Wondering how come nobody told me
All that I was looking for was somebody
Who looked like you

I've got a feeling, that keeps me on my toes
Oh yeah, oh yeah

I've got a feeling, I think that everybody knows
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Yeah, yeah, I've got a feeling, yeah

Everybody had a hard year
Everybody had a good time
Everybody had a wet dream
Everybody saw the sunshine
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Everybody had a good year
Everybody let their hair down
Everybody pulled their socks up
Everybody put their foot down
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Yeah, I've got a feeling
A feeling deep inside
Oh yeah, oh yeah

I've got a feeling, a feeling I can't hide
Oh no
Oh no, no, no

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I've got a feeling
I've got a feeling

    General Comment"Paul's song "I've Got a Feeling" and John's "Everybody's Had a Hard Year" were put together for "I've Got a Feeling". Paul's contribution was a love song to Linda, whereas John's was autobiographical and experimentative in new writing styles (each line begins with the word 'everybody'). John did have had a hard year, as he divorced his wife Cynthia, was arrested for drug possession, was nearly broke, and had lost a baby with Yoko through miscarriage." - smackbomb.com/…

    and that about sums it up.
    everybody had a wet dream. oh john.

    "I've got a feeling, that keeps me on my toes"
    "I've got a feeling, I think that everybody knows!"

    Along with having a "hard" year, good time, and wet dream...

    Definitely about an erection.

    General Commentto me, this song will always be about middle school public erections.

    "I've got a feeling, a feeling I can't hide"

    "I've got a feeling, I think that everybody knows"

    "Everybody had a hard year"

    it's all about boners, yo. i picture myself walking to the front of my seventh grade geography class in devastated slow motion every time i hear it.

    General CommentI can't remember how many they had, but John and Yoko had a couple of miscarriages. Yoko had had a lot of abortions, and John had done so many drugs, no wonder... They went to a specialist who told them to live and eat right and they would have a baby. They ended up having Sean, and the guy died soon after, weird, right? Anyeay, this song is great, I always found humor in that line John put in, always the dirty one!

    General CommentI think this song is about the sixties. Paul section is just a mantra. It dosnt mean much, but it is positive and suggests he has an answer.

    Johns section casts an eye back at 1968 and perhaps the whole sixties youth movement in general. In 1968 the dream of 1967 died. I think John also ties his own turmolic events up with events of 1968. John refers to people pulling there socks up and putting there foot down. This must refer to all the social porotest of the sixties. In 68 students protested in the USA and in Paris. Pulling your socks up could also refer to John trying to get his life back on track in 68 after spending 65-67 in a drugs haze. Everybody saw the sunshine and Everybody let there hair down must refer to the hippies and flower children. Growing your hair long and the summer of love. But everybody had a wet dream refers to the ultimate failure of the sixties generation and the clueless idealism of the peace and love politics. John is up to date and by 68 he is already turning his back on the youth movement and realises its failure. In do this he is in league with lou reed and Frank Zappa. It was Johns cynisism that often made the Beatles what they were, and it ofset Pauls positivism, making the Beatles the most diverce and intriging band of there generation. But by 1971 John was singing "Imagine" The polar opposite of what he was expressing in this song.

    General Commentdont be left behind when you have " A feeling" or if you detect something in you're life you haven't discovered before... strange and awesome things can and will happen in you're life and may just bring you what you have been looking for... each passing moment, and of course hard times are always the center for a song, life lessons.. haha I really like the beatles.
