-------------------------------------------------------------- THE BEATLES - ALL TOGETHER NOW (Lennon/McCartney) From YELLOW SUBMARINE album. Released in the USA on January, 13th and in the UK on January 17th, 1969. -------------------------------------------------------------- Tabbed by:PJVillanueva This song was recorded in a single session (7:00 pm to 12:30 am) on May, 12th 1967, the following day in which BABY YOU'RE A RICH MAN (B side of ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE) was recorded. The Beatles were finishing SGT PEPPER's album and working on MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR and they'd also agreed to do an animated film after their REVOLVER album song YELLOW SUBMARINE. The song was considered rather trite by many when the record was finally released. It was trite enough to be sung by huge crowds on English football stadiums for several seasons, but it was made so simple on purpose. John's harmonica is played in a very nonchalant, almost childish, way and he plays also a plastic sax with which he produces some fine humorous bits (see 01:12-01:17). He also plays banjo and is quite involved, being a song from Paul, though it's possible that the bridge, which he sings, was his. Paul plays bass, two acoustic guitar tracks and sings, Ringo plays drums and triangle and George just handclaps and backing vocals, like the rest of people they summoned in the studio. The long speeding tempo gives it just what it needed to make it into a very funny and cheerful demonstration. I've played this a lot of times and think that anyone could sing it sometimes, provided they are able to get loose enough, which I think it's not such a bad thing at all. One, two, three, four Can I have a little more Five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten I love you A, B, C, D Can I bring my friend to tea E, F, G, H, I, J I love you Bom bom bom Bom pa bom Sail the ship Bom pa bom Chop the tree Bom pa bom Skip the rope Bom pa bom Look at me All together now, ... Black, white, green, red Can I take my friend to bed' Pink, brown, yellow, orange and blue, I love you. All together now, ... Bom pa bom Sail the ship Bom pa bom Chop the tree Bom pa bom Skip the rope Bom pa bom Look at me All together now, ... 12/8 INTRO F# ´ e|------ ------ ------ ------|------ ------ ------ 2-----|
