Facts:
  • Also featured on the album "Beatlesongs" from Rhino Records. A compilation of Beatles related songs and novelites. Also on the album "We Love You Beatles" by the Carefrees and "Beatles Rap" by the Quarryman and finally a rare spoken word song by Casey Kasem (American Top 40) title "A Letter From Eleana" (pandy2)
  • From the 1964 album FOR SWINGIN' LIVERS ONLY. (sav-man)
  • This song isn't bad, but Sherman's "angry parent" routine worked to much better effect on his parody of Petula Clark's "Downtown" (which Sherman entitled "Crazy Downtown"). (sav-man)
  • In this song (sung to the tune of "Pop Goes The Weasel"), Sherman satirizes the narrow-minded view that some adults in the mid-1960's had about The Beatles being the "worst" thing to hit music since the plague (although the Fab Four would later gain respect from everybody in due time, especially when their lyrics and music became more complex). (sav-man)
  • Song Lyrics:
    My daughter needs a new phonograph.
    She wore out all the needles.
    Besides, I broke the old one in half.
    I hate the Beatles.

    She says they have a Liverpool beat.
    She says they used to play there.
    Four nice kids from offa the street.
    Why didn’t they stay there?

    What is all the screaming about?
    Fainting and swooning.
    Sounds to me like their guitars
    Could use a little tuning.

    The boys are from the British Empire.
    The British think they’re keen.
    If that is what the British desire,
    God Save The Queen.

    No daughter of mine can push me around.
    In my house I’m the master.
    But when the British come into town,
    Gad, what a disaster!

    Little girls in sneakers and jeans.
    Destroyed the territory.
    ‘Twas like some of the gorier scenes
    From West Side Story.

    Of course my daughter had to go there.
    “The tickets are cheap!” she hollers.
    I was able to pick up a pair
    For forty-seven dollars.

    When the Beatles come on the stage,
    They scream and shriek and cheer them.
    Now I know why they’re such a rage,
    It’s impossible to hear them.

    Ringo is the one with the drum,
    The others all play with him.
    It shows you what a boy can become
    Without a sense of rhythm.

    There’s Beatle books and T-shirts and rings,
    And one thing and another.
    To buy my daughter all of these things,
    I had to sell her brother.

    Back in 1776
    We fought the British then, folks.
    Parents of America,
    It’s time to do it again, folks.

    When they come back, here’s how we’ll begin,
    We’ll throw ‘em in Boston Harbor.
    But please, before we toss ‘em all in,
    Let’s take ‘em to a barber!
    (Bill L)
