Beatles, The - Honey Pie Lyrics




She was a working girl
North of England way
Now she's hit the big time
In the USA
And if she could only hear me
This is what I'd say

Honey pie you are making me crazy
I'm in love but I'm lazy
So won't you please come home

Oh honey pie my position is tragic
Come and show me the magic
Of your Hollywood song

You became a legend of the silver screen
And now the thought of meeting you
Makes me weak in the knee

Oh honey pie you are driving me frantic
Sail across the Atlantic
To be where you belong

Honey pie come back to me, oh

Yeah
I like it like that, oh ah
I like this kind of hot kind of music
Hot kind of music
Play it to me, play it to me, honey, the blues

Will the wind that blew her boat
Across the sea
Kindly send her sailing back to me

Honey pie you are making me crazy
I'm in love but I'm lazy
So won't you please come home
Come, come back to me, honey pie

Oooooooooooh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Honey pie, honey pie

  3. Niferno

    paul McCartney please i love youR SONGS PLEASE MAKE MORE SONGS I LOVE YOUR SONGS.

  4. laserluver1

    Every now and then, Paul's dad's influence would come through in his music. Jim Mac's Jazz Band.

  5. John Yohann

    My favorite song on the album.

  6. ijfharvey

    You're Paul McCartney, of course she'll say yes.

  7. Harrison kinball

    yeeaahhh Paul 👌👌

  8. shaecamardoe Shae Camardo

    i have a new love for this song :)

  9. ¡ SalvadorSCS !

    on speed x1.25 sounds good

  10. Annamation

    Lowkey this song is really cute and wholesome.

  11. haziel day

    What kind of music is this? I like it

    Mauro Gajardo

    Vaudeville Jazz

  12. Joseph DeFlorio

    This is one of multiple songs that I think was inspired by the 20’s jazz style music, Paul’s dad performed in his band.

  13. Apong Longchar

    2019 anyone?? ❤❤

  14. who is like God?

    this granny shit bumping hard my neguses

  15. Amy x

    Honey Pie, your'e not safe here....

  16. Ericmerrick

    At least this song ain’t wild if you catch my drift

  17. Trevor Tagliabue

    Twee...l actually hate this sentimental nonsense...

  18. Todd Baker

    NOW SHE'S HIT THE BIG TIME, IN THE USA!

  19. Mica Vega

    In the song Masacre en el puticlub the Indio Solario did the same sound

  20. Chloé Van Bavel

    I just know this melody but I didn't know it was Paul McCartney... Well I should've known

  21. Vic

    This song is incredibly sweet I love it

  22. Alex Dredge

    Lennon called this song “Beyond Redemption” I don’t know why he hated it so much, but I like it

    WillemRM

    The question is rather why did he put up with having schmaltzy retro stuff like this on the albums.

  23. axltyler

    I love how the chord progression of this song is a cycle of secondary dominants.

  24. charlie

    now THIS is granny music

  25. Storeisclosed

    I wanna know who played that jazzy guitar part..I say John

  26. walendxweg

    Paul’s one of the very few male singers with a falsetto I can stand

  28. Gacha Brim \ Star DC

    AMAZING 😆😆😆😆😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😀🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣☺️☺️☺️☺️😊😊😊😌😌😌😙😜😗😝😛😜😎😎😎🤥

  29. Marcelo Zimmermann

    Tengo 56, y por esos tiempos abría el mueble que escondía la bandeja Garrard de mis padres y ponía The Beatles. Que felicidad y lindos recuerdos! Este era uno de esos discos. Love it!

  30. Picnicl

    I'm a defender of Paul but Honey Pie's a step too far - I can see why John and George called it granny music. It's almost unreconstructed Edwardian.

    Philip Gomez

    Well... that's what is supposed to be, man.

    Picnicl

    But it's not what The Beatles were supposed to be, not as a track on a major album. Honey Pie should have been just a song on a soundtrack album. When I'm 64 was fine on Pepper because it fit the themes of the album - childhood, meeting a girl, moving out, getting older etc. Martha my Dear suits The White Album well because it breaks out of a conventional structure. Your Mother Should Know suits Magical Mystery Tour as it's not hard to imagine a mother accompanying their child in an old time singalong on a magical mystery tour anyway (even though that's not how the song's presented). I know The White Album is, to some extent, three Beatles solo interests put in to one album but Honey Pie is so jarringly so that it gives credence to the idea that it was really McCartney who unintentionally broke up the Beatles by cause of the music that he was creating that was anti the other Beatles. Even in Pepper, his own concept, John contributes more songs that fit the idea of it being different voices from the Beatles. McCartney goes off down the 'northern songs' route and, to this day, people convincingly point out that the concept is muddled. They'd have been better describing it as a 'day in the life' of various individuals - e.g. Lucy, Mr Kite, the 'I'm' in When I'm 64, the 'She' in She's Leaving Home, the people in A Day in the Life.

  31. Scott French

    Among the cheesiest tracks the Beatles ever recorded and maybe the worst on the White Album, although Ringo's contribution might keep it from that honor.

    Scott French

    Best? Have you never heard the White Album? Paul has some great songs on the record. "Honey Pie" is not one of them.

    Callum DCamp

    Scott French I wasn’t saying it was the best I just thought it was a good song and not bad. There are obviously better

    Gacha Brim \ Star DC

    @Callum DCamp YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Eli

    Scott French: “Worst on the White Album”.

    Me: What a ignorant statement.
    *Wild Honey Pie is the worst on this album.*

    WillemRM

    @Eli I'd rather listen to that one 3x then once to this tame corny pie. There are five I don't care for on the White Album, four are by McCartney.

  32. Just Quinn

    At 0:32 after paul says "this what ill say" I'd exit out of the video and click on wild honey pie so he goes "this is what ill say.........HONEY PIIIEEEEEE HONEY PIIIEEEE"

  33. LameStudiosInc

    Paul on The White Album: Why Don't We Do It In The Road?
    Also Paul on The White Album:

  34. Barcessat

    reminds me ''lazing on a sunday afternoon'' from queen

    Rossmanek Rene

    it was from the kinks

    Barcessat

    "lazing" not "sunny"
    nice song btw

  35. Dafoodmaster

    ey abel bedankt voor de taarten gozer

  36. Margarida Carvalho

    and then there’s wild honey pie where paul is just drunk

  37. Joe M.

    Easilest, the worst Beatles song. Thanks, Paul,

  38. Joraco 08

    one of the most underrated songs

  39. Piper Shumate

    Well here is honey pie. Now listen to wild honey pie it’s way better

  40. john lemon

    beatles: i like it like that, ooh
    billie eilish: aaah, like it like that, like it like thaat.

  41. cathy crompton

    That’s John doing the brief guitar solo

  42. Pamela Young

    I just love me some honey pie

  43. Peter Davis

    Lennon with the guitar solo!

  44. lelo

    Mi rola favorita de este álbum :'3

  45. philmstud2k

    Has Paul ever performed this live? I really wish he would. It's one of my favorite tracks off The White Album.

  46. Janet Wilhelm

    From the same album that brought you Revolution #9 folks!

    Katie Last name

    Janet Wilhelm and helter skelter

    Abiel Ticas

    Whenever I listen to this song, I think "oh, Rev. 9 is each time closer and closer", and it gives me goosebumps.

  47. Bill Cabage

    Amazed to learn John played that nifty guitar break. Except for George's lead in "Till There Was You," as close to jazz as they ever came.

  48. Paul McCharmly

    how it feels when you have the girl you like in the school play and you never see her anymore :(

    :)

  49. patrick grondines

    love the beatles

  50. Andrew Victor

    I see no comments appreciating the lovely, but short guitar solo supplied by John, which almost sounds like a clarinet. If indeed he hated the song, he clearly gave of his best in the recording.

  51. Sam Hein

    Wait I always thought this was a Lennon song, i didnt know McCartney wrote this

  52. Philomath67

    My love just sang/played this song to me on the phone. I love and know the Beatles, but I totally don't remember this. What a delight, in several ways, to have him play this for me.

  53. Alex Curioso

    Super granny Paul in the Great Depression.

  54. Angela De Cola

    She was a working girl
    North of England way
    Now she's hit the big time
    In the U.S.A.
    And if she could only hear me
    This is what I'd say.

    Honey pie, you are making me crazy
    I'm in love but I'm lazy
    So won't you please come home.

    Oh honey pie, my position is tragic
    Come and show me the magic
    Of your Hollywood song.

    You became a legend of the silver screen
    And now the thought of meeting you
    Makes me weak in the knee.

    Oh honey pie, you are driving me frantic

  55. H V

    Some critics called this and 'When I'm 64' "Regrettable McCartney 'Vaudville.'"

    noriemeha

    McCartney is a songster who is more interested in song-tunes than in following some radical music agenda. He can't resist or redirect his inspiration.... so you get this in the middle of the White Album. More power to him.

  56. Nothing is Real

    White Album is the best Beatles album imo.

  57. Porfirio Días

    Adoro esta canción...🌷
    Con una introducción realizada en ''Fritangas Records.''

  58. jesse quezada

    I was expecting something like wild honey pie and I'm severely disappointed

  59. Andrew *

    Can hear Rudy Valley singing this through a megaphone In 1920’s. Fun stuff .

  60. nicolerreid

    i prefer wild honey pie

  61. PappyWappy43

    I can't think of many songs where they personally stop to tell you that they like the genre they're playing, haha.

  65. Cassandra Campbell

    No offense, but this is my favorite Beatles song

    Jnet Egiziaco

    What do you mean "no offense?" Every Beatles song is my favorite (except for Revolution 9 and Wild Honey Pie)

    Tyler Baldwin

    @Jnet Egiziaco https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BD5TA0FVNf0

    Ingrid Fong-Daley

    how is that offensive?

  66. Raul Morales

    Now she's hit the big time in the 2019

  67. KAMILO GAMER

    Underrated song

  68. James Kendall

    Honey pie show me the magic if your Hollywood song.
    Makes me weak in the knees. Would the boat that sailed
    her 'cross the sea kindly send her sailin' back to me?
    Position is tragic. Silver screen.Hollywood. Who, me?
    Did I ever care? My knees start to wobble then my mind starts
    to bobble and there's no cure but stonehenge.

  69. TSM8088

    A throwback to the days of Eddie Cantor. The Beatles' influences spanned far and wide. So Great!

  70. 개비정한세상

    I’m in love but I’m lazy
    So, won’t you please come home

    Come back to me, honey pie
    Honey pie, honey pie

  71. BilisNegra

    I love how Paul briefly turned into 1920's jazz, subsequently inspiring Queen to do the same later on in a few tracks, too.

    Argie Fag

    @fancyhatfactory I mean, like anything made by the beatles, it never quite fits in one single category but it's mostly a ragtime song, though that's just my personal opinion

    fancyhatfactory

    @Argie Fag Thanks for your opinion! I think I don't know enough about different genres from different decades, but I'll keep on learning.

    Tyler Baldwin

    @Argie Fag Doesn't sound like Ragtime to me, more like a musical number of the 1920s and 1930s, like something out of a Fred Astaire film. The Drums in the middle of the song give it away for me. The Ragtime era didn't have that kind of drumming. Saxophones and Winds also remind of Guy Lombardo's work, so that also feeds into it.

    Carlos Cerdán

    Killer queen

    ijfharvey

    @Argie Fag it bears a strong resemblance melodically, rhythmically, and harmonically, but the arrangement is not jazz at all.

  72. Thor Svensson

    Paul being silly and isn’t it great?

  73. Dave S

    Interesting

  74. Dr. killpatient

    Very Fred Astaire/ Rudy Vallee. John hated it, but in many ways Lennon needed to broaden his horizons. Besides, the 1920's were considered chic again by many in the hippie/ baby- Boomer community at that time. ( Remember, "Tiny Tim", a huge celebrity in the late 60's.)

    Tyler Baldwin

    Yes, I can hear the Fred Astaire and Rudy Vallee influences. The drums as well sound very 1920s and 1930s, with the Winds between lines reminding me of Guy Lombardo. Also the song in general sounds a lot like the 1925 standard "Dinah".

    Joseph Brush

    hey doctor, Lennon did broaden his horizons. John played the gypsy guitar bit on honey pie. He also played the lively piano intro on ob-la-di,ob-la-da.

  75. Lee Borger

    Thank you Sir George Martin..

  76. xylfox

    Honey Pies time,the 20ies ,were a decade nearer to the 60ies than the 60ies to 2019

  77. 3 1 / 0 3

    0:36 that little guitar pick gives me chills (in a good way)

  78. Richard W

    From the same album that contained “Happiness Is A Warm Gun”. HA!

  79. Richard W

    Paul doing Cole Porter

  80. Tranlew Linign

    How could I ever reject 40's Jazz?

  81. henry michal

    bloody awesome song.

  82. Tyler Baldwin

    reminds me a lot of the song "dinah"

  83. Pablo Jose

    True genius...like it was taken from the late '20's or early '30's.

  84. Prideoffreedom

    Granny shit

  85. Brendan McCabe

    Going from “Why Don’t We Do It In The Road” a song that’s lyrics is entirely saying “want to have sex in public” to this on the same album

  86. alan olive

    I'm not convinced the original McCartney didn't die in 1966. One extensive site lays out the comparison of Paul and possible replacement Billy Shears. I found it believable in picture facial differences.

    Lidia Mori

    Omg STOP this Faul bullshit.
    He's not dead.

    Pobow

    Faul, billy, William... I think paul is paul

    Ingrid Fong-Daley

    You do know that Billy Shears is a made-up character right?
    That's like saying you're certain the Wizard of Oz took over as an impostor because you've seen pics of how the wizard 'really looked.'

  87. Carlos Cerdán

  89. Mario Trueba

    Que buenísima música los Beatles el mejor grupo de todos los tiempos estoy orgulloso de haber vivido esa epoca

  90. Andrew Vincent

    I love these 50s sounding songs Paul does lol. I love Suicide, Call me back again, Give me a Ring. He was so good writing these songs lol

  91. Andrew Vincent

    I love these 50s sounding songs Paul does lol. I love Suicide, Call me back again, Give me a Ring. He was so good writing these songs lol

  92. Andrew Vincent

    i may be the only one but I LOVE Wild Honey Pie lol. It's such a cool and wacky song.

    Michael H.

    Wild honey pie is a kick ass song!

  93. alan olive

    Why do I keep seeing these Paul is dead rehashed stories? I can't say if there is any truth to this.

    Ingrid Fong-Daley

    sure you can--he made 20 more albums and fathered several children. :)

  94. Vincentvancraig

    This album is essentially two solo albums, plus George’s stuff.

  95. Kenneth Marshall

    After that I need some cream tangerine

  96. Dinsdale Monty Piranha

    Thank you! I was thinking about this song, and I can listen to it.
