penny lane lyrics – the beatles

“penny lane”

in penny lane there is a barber showing photographs
of every head he’s had the pleasure to know
and all the people that come and go
stop and say h*llo

on the corner is a banker with a motorcar
the little children laugh at him behind his back
and the banker never wears a mack
in the pouring rain, very strange

penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes
there beneath the blue suburban skies
i sit, and meanwhile back

in penny lane there is a fireman with an hourgl*ss
and in his pocket is a portrait of the queen
he likes to keep his fire engine clean
it’s a clean machine

penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes
a four of fish and finger pies
in summer, meanwhile back

behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout
the pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
and though she feels as if she’s in a play
she is anyway

in penny lane the barber shaves another customer
we see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
and then the fireman rushes in
from the pouring rain, very strange

penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes
there beneath the blue suburban skies
i sit, and meanwhile back
penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes
there beneath the blue suburban skies
penny lane
