Penny Lane
The Beatles Lyrics


Penny Lane, there is a barber showing photographs
Of every head he's had the pleasure to know
And all the people that come and go
Stop and say, "Hello"

On the corner is a banker with a motorcar
The little children laugh at him behind his back
And the banker never wears the mac
In the pouring rain, very strange
Penny Lane is in my ear and in my eye
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back
In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen
He likes to keep his fire engine clean
It's a clean machine

Penny Lane is in my ear and in my eye
A four of fish and finger pies
In summer, meanwhile back
Behind the shelter in the middle of the roundabout
The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
And though she feels as if she's in a play
She is anyway

In Penny Lane, the barber shaves another customer
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
Then the fireman rushes in
From the pouring rain, very strange

Penny Lane is in my ear and in my eye
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back
Penny Lane is in my ear and in my eye
There beneath the blue suburban skies
Penny Lane

In Penny Lane, there is a barber showing photographs
Of every head he's had the pleasure to know
And all the people that come and go
Stop and say hello
On the corner is a banker with a motorcar
And little children laugh at him behind his back
And the banker never wears a mac in the pouring rain
Very strange
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
Wet beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit and meanwhile back in
Penny Lane, there is a fireman with an hourglass
And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen
He likes to keep his fire engine clean
It's a clean machine
Penny Lane, is in my ears and in my eyes
A four of fish and finger pies
In summer, meanwhile back
Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout
A pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
And though she feels as if she's in a play
She is anyway
Penny Lane, the barber shaves another customer
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
And then, the fireman rushes in from the pouring rain
Very strange
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit and meanwhile back
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
There beneath the blue suburban skies
Penny Lane


LETRA

En Penny Lane, hay un peluquero mostrando fotografías.
De cada cabeza que ha tenido el placer de conocer
Y toda la gente que viene y va
Detente y saluda
En la esquina hay un banquero con un automóvil.
Y los niños pequeños se ríen de él a sus espaldas
Y el banquero nunca usa un mac bajo la lluvia torrencial
Muy extraño
Penny Lane está en mis oídos y en mis ojos
Mojado bajo los cielos suburbanos azules
Me siento y mientras tanto vuelvo a entrar
Penny Lane, hay un bombero con un reloj de arena
Y en su bolsillo hay un retrato de la Reina
Le gusta mantener limpio su camión de bomberos.
es una maquina limpia
Penny Lane, está en mis oídos y en mis ojos
Un cuatro de pescado y empanadas
En verano, mientras tanto de vuelta
Detrás del refugio en medio de una rotonda
Una linda enfermera vende amapolas de una bandeja.
Y aunque se siente como si estuviera en una obra de teatro
ella es de todos modos
Penny Lane, el barbero afeita a otro cliente
Vemos al banquero sentado esperando un recorte
Y luego, el bombero se precipita desde la lluvia torrencial.
Muy extraño
Penny Lane está en mis oídos y en mis ojos
Allí debajo de los cielos suburbanos azules
me siento y mientras tanto vuelvo
Penny Lane está en mis oídos y en mis ojos
Allí debajo de los cielos suburbanos azules
Penny Lane



Charlie Freeman

One of my personal favorites of theirs! I would go so far as to argue that this recording is the crown jewel of George Martin's work with The Beatles:

Before Abbey Road, most if not all of their studio work had an element of rawness in the sound palate that helped give the recording a kind of drive and weight that would keep it grounded.

Penny Lane is the standout among the exceptions to that rule: the drive is still there, but there isn't a single sonic edge that hasn't been rounded out. Even the percussion sounds smooth and pristine.

And it wasn't by accident either: McCartney repeatedly told Martin that he wanted a "clean" sound, and Martin delivered in a way that, in my opinion, would not be repeated again.

No other Beatles recording before or since came as close to having so clean a sound without impeding upon the drive of the song. Apologies, fellow fans, but this is the field where even the studio version of Here Comes the Sun is outshone.

@Judy Ledbetter I don't feel sorry for ringo he got to hang out with and be part of the band that shaped the world of rock and made Oasis possible. He was personal friends with the Lennon, McCartney and the Harrison. Rip George and Paul😭

Those chord progression is out of this world. Pure genius and creativity of Paul McCartney. ✌️

Andrew Bell

Huh? The chord progression is just something he lifted from Bach. He did this also with "Blackbird", which he shows you in a recent, way cool
video clip. This doesn't mean he isn't some kindova genius though.

The lyrics are some of the best he ever wrote, also. Imagine writing a play filled with goofy adults, including a banker, a fireman, a barber, a pretty nurse, a stoned Beatle, the "adults" going about their absurd activities on Penny Lane, being laughed at, mildly ridiculed, but in a wistful way, without malice, and with a touch of joy. He's left his
home forever, but it hasn't left him.
He misses it, but is not sad to have left it behind. Paul walks on water in this song.

@Jerm similar to my baby just cares for me by Nina Simone?

Phil Wyles

@Martina Linked to we the word sublime is not a synonym of ordinary. Sublime is an elevation somewhat synonymous with perfection
