(1, 2, 3, 4)

It was twenty years ago today
Sergeant Pepper taught the band to play,
They've been going in and out of style,
But they're guaranteed to raise the smile,
So may I introduce to you,
The act you've known for all these years,
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

We're Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
We hope you will enjoy the show
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Sit back and let the evening go
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

It's wonderful to be here,
It's certainly a thrill
You're such a lovely audience,
We'd like to take you home with us, we'd love to take you home

I don't really want to stop the show,
But I thought you might like to know,
That the singer's going to sing a song
And he wants you all to sing along,
So let me introduce to you
The one and only Billy Shears
And Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Oh ha ha
Yeah, dress down
I feel it, I feel it, I feel it
Oh baby now, I feel it, I feel it, I feel it
Baby, free now
Gotta be free now, gotta be free now, gotta be free
Don't like that
I think it'll probably be another day singing it
Yeah so just edit that then, it's nice
Yeah, and what you can do with the bits where you can't get it 'cause you haven't got enough breath
Just take over, yeah

    General CommentToo bad the other Beales didn't want to go along with Paul's idea of a pretend band (Sgt. Pepper's L H C Band)
    Maybe they would have come up with some other great songs.

    General CommentTwo explanations Cassanova

    #1 The more believable explanation is that Billy Shears is just the persona that Ringo took for the mock band called Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

    #2 This is the explanation used by Paul Is Dead believers. The supposed name of the Paul-lookalike that took Paul's place after his "death" was William (Billy) Campbell. What the Paul Is Dead believers believed that Billy Shears is a play on the phrase "Billy's Here", meaning that William Campbell is here now and taking the place of Paul.

    General CommentWell, I came up with my own Billy Shears theory today.... I think it's original ( at least it is for me) anyway. William = Will = Billy Shakespeare could = Shears.... It's a very long shot, but Billy Shears = Will Shakespeare, would be a cool reference, just an idea
