when we was fab lyrics – george harrison

back then long time ago when gr*ss was green
woke up in a daze
arrived like stangers in the night

(fab, doo, doo, doo, doo)
long time ago when we was fab
(fab)
back when ((the beatles: taxman|income tax)) was all we had

caresses fleeced you in the morning light
casualties at dawn
and we did it all

(fab, doo, doo, doo, doo)
long time ago when we was fab
(fab)
((the beatles: in my life|in my world)) you are my only love

and while you’re in this world
the fuzz gonna come and claim you
but you mo better wise
when the buzz gonna come and take you away
take you away
take you away

the microscopes that magnified the tears
studied warts and all
still the life flows on and on

(fab)
long time ago when we was fab
(fab)
but ((bob dylan: it’s all over now, baby blue|it’s all over now, baby blue))

(fab)
long time ago when we was fab
(fab)
like this pullover you sent to me

(fab)
and ((smokey robinson: you really got a hold on me|you’ve really got a hold on me))
(fab)
long time ago when we was fab
