    Although it has never been considered that good, I think 
    this song is one among John's best. Writen for Billy J 
    Kramer & The Dakotas in the summer of 1963 and released
    as B side of another Lennon/McCartney number, BAD TO ME,
    John decided to record it too.  
    With its four-in-the-bar cowbell and its sort of "Ska" 
    rythm during  the Solo (never heard before at the time) 
    it shows a beautiful melody and some softer than usual 
    lyrics.



                                
            
I call your name, but you're not there     
Was I to blame for being unfair
Oh I can't sleep at night since you've been gone
I never weep at night,  I can't go on

Don't you know I can't take it
I don't know who can
I'm not going to make it
I'm not that kind of man.

Oh I can't sleep at night, but just the same
I never weep at night, I call your name
