Okay, we're gonna do a number now and you all know the words so I like to hear you all join in.
Are you ready to join in?
YEAH!!
'Cause it's very simple, very easy, it's a place we all like to be and it goes like this

IN THE TOWN WHERE I WAS BORN, YES! YES!
LIVED A MAN WHO SAILED TO SEA.
AND HE TOLD US OF HIS LIFE
IN THE LAND OF SUBMARINES.
SO WE SAILED ON TO THE SUN,
TILL WE FOUND THE SEA OF GREEN,
AND WE PLAYED BENEATH THE WAVES,
IN OUR YELLOW SUBMARINE.

COME ON NOW!

WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE,
YELLOW SUBMARINE, A YELLOW SUBMARINE.
WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE,
A YELLOW SUBMARINE, A YELLOW SUBMARINE.

AND OUR FRIENDS ARE ALL ABOARD,
MANY MORE OF THEM LIVE NEXT DOOR.
AND THE BAND BEGAN TO PLAY.

HO!

WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE,
A YELLOW SUBMARINE, A YELLOW SUBMARINE.
WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE,
A YELLOW SUBMARINE, A YELLOW SUBMARINE.

FULL SPEED AHEAD, MISTER PARKER, FULL SPEED AHEAD!
FULL SPEED OVER HERE, SIR!
ACTION STATION! ACTION STATION!
AYE, AYE, SIR, FIRE!
HEAVEN! HEAVEN!

AS WE LIVE (as we live)
A LIFE OF EASE, ( a life of ease)
EV'RYONE OF US (ev'ryone of us)
HAS ALL WE NEED. (has all we need)
A SKY OF BLUE (sky of blue)
A SEA OF GREEN, (sea of green)
IN OUR YELLOW (in our yellow)
SUBMARINE. (submarine, ha! ha!)

"Come on, this time!

WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE,
A YELLOW SUBMARINE, A YELLOW SUBMARINE.
WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE,
A YELLOW SUBMARINE, A YELLOW SUBMARINE.

LAST TIME!
WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE, COME ON IN THE BACK!
A YELLOW SUBMARINE, YEAH, A YELLOW SUBMARINE.
WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE,
A YELLOW SUBMARINE, A YELLOW SUBMARINE.


Thank you! Merci beaucoup! Danke schön!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Well, that's it from us, we'll be off now. I'm only kidding
Okay, sit down, sit down, come on, you've had your fun.
I get so bossy when I get up here.
Okay, we've prompted up all of the show, this is like the solo spots in the show
Where a couple of members are doing acoustic numbers for you while the rest of the band
Go and cool off. Then we gradually build up again and then I'll return.
And this evening we're gonna start with the mighty Joe Walsh!
