“My son [Julian] came home with a drawing and showed me this strange looking woman flying around. I said ‘What is it?’ He said ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ and I thought that’s beautiful. I immediately wrote a song about it. The song had gone out, the whole album had been published and someone noticed that the letter spelt out LSD (Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds) and I had no idea about it… It wasn’t about that at all.”

- John Lennon on the Dick Cavett Show (September 11, 1971)

RAIN- The Beatles

"Rain"

If the rain comes they run and hide their heads
They might as well be dead
If the rain comes, if the rain comes

When the sun shines they slip into the shade
(When the sun shines down)
And drink their lemonade
(When the sun shines down)
When the sun shines, when the sun shines

Rain, I don’t mind
Shine, the weather’s fine

I can show you that when it starts to rain
(When the rain comes down)
Everything’s the same
(When the rain comes down)
I can show you, I can show you

Rain, I don’t mind
Shine, the weather’s fine

Can you hear me, that when it rains and shines
(When it rains and shines)
It’s just a state of mind?
(When it rains and shines)
Can you hear me, can you hear me?
