    What would you think if I sang out of tune
    Would you stand up and walk out on me.
    Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
    And I'll try not to sing out of key

    Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
    Hmmm I get high with a little help from my friends
    Hmmm Going to try with a little help from my friends.

    What do I do when my love is away
    (Does it worry you to be alone)
    How do I feel by the end of the day
    (Are you sad because you're on your own)
    No I get by with a little help from my friends ... 

    Do you need anybody
    I need somebody to love
    Could it be anybody
    I want somebody to love

    Would you believe in a love at first sight
    Yes I'm certain that it happens all the time
    What do you see when you turn out the light
    I can't tell you, but I know it's mine
    Oh I get by with a little help from my friends ...

    Do you need anybody
    I just need somebody to love
    Could it be anybody
    I want somebody to love

    I get by with a little help from my friends
    Hmmm going to try with a little help from my friends
    Oh I get high with a little help from my friends 
    Yes I get by with a little help from my friends,
    With a little help from my friends.
