Beatles – Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds lyrics

Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
And she's gone.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmellow pies,
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers,
That grow so incredibly high.

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
And you're gone.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Picture yourself on a train in a station,
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties,
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstyle,
The girl with the kaleidoscope eyes.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

    The beatles always denied that the song was about lsd.
    What really happened was: John's son Julian brought home a picture of his friend/ crush and it was of her in the night sky and it inspired John.
    That was how the song originally started. But I'm not gonna lie, it seems like more than just a coincidence with the whole lsd thing. So I kinda think it evolved into a song about drugs, but it started as a song based on that picture.

    The 2 suspect reasons, lsd taking song writers or sum picture that john lennons kid drew, I think that they are both right. John lennons kid was on lsd and drew sum messed up pix for his dad who wrote a song about it! Also, lucy in the sky with diamonds is like cockney ryming slang. Are you on lucy? Lucy sky diamonds, lsd, several liverpudlians have said are you on lucy to me as a joke when I said summit, its slang for are you on lsd, like you might say to ur m8 are you on crack cos he said summit weird.

    I can only guess. I think it's about using your imagination. I get the feeling its about a cartoon with different colours. I love the song because it's just really catchy. I try so hard to imagine the things in the song. I get the thought that this is about imagination cause they say picture yourself. It suggests try to imagine these things. I drew a picture once of this song. I love it.
