With A Little Help From My Friends

I have never taken a fancy to men with long hair (in those days, I always made sure the guys who were 'extra friendly' know this). Well, nothing before or after Marty Pellow (lead singer of Wet Wet Wet), that is! This man has an incredibly melodious voice that can easily melt any girl's heart. Even though many have sung this song (Beatles, Ringo Starr, Bon Jovi, to name a few), I must say that nobody sings it like Pellow.

After being MIA for a few weeks for reasons I am unable to disclose (oh, watch out now, those cats are really curious!!), I searched hi and lo for the best song to put up. Avoiding sentimentals that might make others shed tears more than I might be, here's one cheerful note dedicated to all my friends. This is however, especially dedicated to Ayu (who used to go gaga over Pellow) and the girls of Horay Mouse (Moray House).

What would you think if I sang outta tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me, yeah
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song

Oooh I'll get by with a little help from my friends
Oooh I'll get high with a little help from my friends
Oooh getting by with a little help from my friends

My friends

What do you do when our love is away
Does it worry you to be alone, hey
And how does it feel by the end of the day
Are you sad because you're on your own

Oooh I'll get by with a little help from my friends (yay!)
Oooh I'll get high with a little help from my friends
Oooh getting by with a little help from my friends

Do you need anybody I need somebody to love
Could it be anybody I need somebody to love, to love, to love, yeah

Would you believe in this love at first sight
Yes I'm certain that it happens all the time
Now what do you see when you turn out the lights
I can't tell you but I know that it's mine

Oooh I'll get by with a little help from my friends
Oooh I'll get high with a little help from my friends
Oooh getting by with a little help from my friends


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

Hey, yay
Oh, oh, oh, lord

And hey yeah

Oh, oh, oh, lord

C'mon

Do you need anybody
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Could it be anybody

And I just wanna
I just wanna say
I just wanna
Yeah

By with a little help from my friends (hey!)
High with a little help from my friends, y'all
By with a little help from my friends

High with a little help from my friends, y'all

Yeah!

Naz said...

I love their *Angel Eyes*. That guy CAN SING! :D
Where are they now, I wonder?

Oldstock said...

D, welcome back. Hope that all is fine.

Err... don't blame the hair la ;-) It's just a phase most of us guys go through. Especially yg study kat obersi tu, heheheh.

D said...

Ms B, it's for you too, don't you forget!

Kak Elle, yes, it's a classic really, kan?

Naz, yes, yes!! 'Angel eyes' was a hit! Pellow came back some years ago, minus hair of course. Hehe...

Oldstock, I know! But some of their excuses were pretty lame: no money for haircut or sejuuuuuk. LOL!
