Beatles – You Never Give Me Your Money lyrics

You never give me your money
You only give me your funny paper
And in the middle of negotiations
You break down

I never give you my number
I only give you my situation
And in the middle of investigation
I break down

Out of college, money spent
See no future, pay no rent
All the money's gone, nowhere to go
Any jobber got the sack
Monday morning, turning back Yellow lorry slow, nowhere to go
But oh, that magic feeling, nowhere to go
Oh, that magic feeling
Nowhere to go

One sweet dream
Pick up the bags and get in the limousine
Soon we'll be away from here
Step on the gas and wipe that tear away
One sweet dream came true today
Came true today
Came true today (yes it did)

One two three four five six seven,
All good children go to Heaven

    This song is the first song in the abbey road medley, but is actually the 9th song on the album, following a plethora of good songs, including I want you (she's so heavy), octopus's garden, and here comes the sun, as well as a few strange ones, like octopus's garden, something, and maxwell's silver hammer. The song is about the beatles' financial problems after their manager passed away, leaving them swamped in their own financial problems, while still giving the song the mindset of any college student who spent a little too much money splurging and not enough time getting a job. The reference to the "funny papers" is how they felt they were paid: the bankers would tell them how much they were worth "on paper," much to the annoyance of the beatles.
