Is there anybody going to listen to my story,
All about the girl who came to stay?
She's the kind of girl you want so much it makes you sorry,
Still you don't regret a single day,

Ah, girl... girl...

When I think of all the times I've tried so hard to leave her,
She will turn to me and start to cry,
And she promises the earth to me and I believe her,
After all this time I don't know why,

Ah, girl... girl...

She's the kind of girl who puts you down,
when friends are there, you feel a fool,
When you say she's looking good,
She acts as if it's understood,
She's cool, cool, cool, cool,

Ah, girl... girl...

Was she told when she was young that pain would lead to pleasure,
Did she understand it when they said,
That a man must break his back to earn his day of leisure,
Will she still believe him when he's dead?

Ah, girl... girl...
"By The Beatles. Always been a big favourite of mine. It's one of the lesser-known Beatles' songs, I think, it's not one of the all-time hits. I don't think it was ever a single. for example, but it's a song that I used to sing a lot when I was younger. If I get a chance to make another album like Beautiful Dreams - like 'More Beautiful Dreams' - I will definitely choose another Beatles song, from the more obscure part of their publishing and songwriting repertoire. The interesting thing about this song, I suppose, for me is that we did it in The Beatles way; all live and with a string quartet, two acoustic guitar and bass. I think it worked very well - and I also added a little piece at the end, which I made up myself, to give it a personal flavour, I suppose."
