Hey jude, don't make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

Hey jude, don't be afraid.
You were made to go out and get her.
The minute you let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better.

And anytime you feel the pain, hey jude, refrain,
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders.
For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder.

Hey jude, don't let me down.
You have found her, now go and get her.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

So let it out and let it in, hey jude, begin,
Youre waiting for someone to perform with.
And don't you know that it's just you, hey jude, you'll do,
The movement you need is on your shoulder.

Hey jude, don't make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her under your skin,
Then you'll begin to make it
Better better better better better better, oh.

Na na na na na ,na na na, hey jude...

    I always hear this song before but I never pay attention to its message.
    Until one day when there was an accasion and I accidentally met my ex.
    He sang this song and said that this is his favorite song while looking to my eyes. After one year we have talked about our relationship. We cleared everything and I realized that no matter how i tried to hid the pain caused of our separation. The feelings is still there. Though he still ready to love and accept me again I can't make it because I already commited my life to my baby and his father. There was a miscommunication but I have to face the reality and the consenquence of what I did. Hope the right time come for him to get me freely again. I Love You.. Symon! Thanks for the forgiveness and understanding. I won't forget you as part of my life and one of my inspirations to live. I miss you.

    People: get this right. Paul wrote this song for Lennon's son Jules. Jules didn't fit, so he changed it to Jude.

    John Lennon's son he had with his wife (Yoko Ono) he left Julian Lennon's mother for, his name was not Samuel, it is Sean...Beatles 101...I would agree you know nothing about the Beatles...

    Bear in mind that the Beatles were sometimes outlandish in their ideas.
    Somebody who doesn't take seriously their vision to imagine a world without country, heaven, or religion, does not comprehend what they're driving at.
    I surmise the song's lyrics is in reaction to Thomas Hardy's Jude the Obscure. Just a guess.

    This song always gives me this feeling of hope; no matter what happens, don't give up: it could be that you just haven't given your all yet. :)
