They Grabbed Us

Fifty years ago this week
Sgt. Pepper he began to speak
Hidden deep just like a motley fool
Inside four boys from Liverpool

It took four lads as inspiration
to bring hope to a crying nation
After November’s assassination
They grabbed us…we held on

John, Paul, George and Ringo
on Ed’s Sunday Show
We sat back and watched them go
They grabbed us…we held on

They came and held the hand
Of a still in mourning land
A little skiffle band
They grabbed us…we held on

We were brought back from the dark side
We were on a rock and roll ride
With four young lads from Mersey Side
They grabbed us…we held on

They grabbed our hearts and souls
They expanded musics goals
They all had different roles
they grabbed us…we held on

In times…things were changing
The band was re-arranging
No more tours were staging
They grabbed us…we held on

Soon, they all went on their way
McCartney sang “Another Day”
John, he had a lot to say
George and Ringo…just played on

John was shot at decades start
It shocked the world and broke apart
Those who held him in our heart
The Beatles were no more

George died too, all things must pass
He always had a silent class
The parts aren’t greater than the mass
The Beatles were no more

Is there anyone out in the land
Who will come and take us by the hand
I hope that you will understand
They grabbed us…we held on

  1. The Beatles certainly were iconic, but I’m one of the very few on Merseyside who isn’t really into their music. I don’t mind if someone else is playing their music, but I’d never choose to listen to them. Each to their own!
