Lyrics:

What would you think if I sang out of tune?
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Well lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
And I’ll try not to sing out of key.
I’ll get by with a little help from my friends
I get high with a little help from my friends
I’m gonna try with a little help from my friends

What do I do when my love is away?
Does it worry you to be alone?
How do I feel by the end of the day?
Are you sad because you’re on your own?
No I get by with a little help from my friends
I get high with a little help from my friends
I’m gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody?
I need somebody to love
Could it be anybody?
I want somebody to love

Now would you believe in a love at first sight?
Yes I’m certain that it happens all the time
Now what do you see when you turn out the light?
I can’t tell you, but I know it’s mine
I get by with a little help from my friends
I get high with a little help from my friends
I’m gonna try with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody?
I  need someone to love
Could it be anybody?
I want somebody to love

I get by with a little help from my friends
I get by with a little help from my friends
With a little help from my friends
With a little help from my friends.
