Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

song

It was twenty years ago today,
Sergeant Pepper taught the band to play.
They've been going in and out of style,
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile.
So may I introduce to you the act you've known for all these years?
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

We're Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,
We hope you will enjoy the show,
We're Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,
Sit back and let the evening go.
Sergeant Pepper's lonely, Sgt. Pepper's lonely,
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

It's wonderful to be here.
It's certainly a thrill.
You're such a lovely audience,
We'd like to take you home with us.
We'd love to take you home.

I don't really want to stop the show,
But I thought you might like to know
That the singer's gonna sing a song
And he wants you all to sing along.
So let me introduce to you,
The one and only Billy Shears,
And Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, yeah.

"Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" is a song written by Paul McCartney (credited to Lennon–McCartney), and first recorded and released in 1967, on the the Beatles' album of the same name. The song appears twice on the album: as the opening track (segueing into "With a Little Help from My Friends"), and as "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)", the penultimate track (segueing into "A Day in the Life"). As the title track, the lyrics introduce the fictional band that performs in the album.

Since its original album release, the song has also been released on singles, on compilation albums, and has been performed by several other artists including Jimi Hendrix, U2, and a comic interpretation by Bill Cosby, using the opening to John Phillip Sousa's Washington Post March as the instrumental bridge.
