Trading Beatles

Have you ever read the lyrics to the song “Goodbye Hello” by the Beatles? Those have to be some of the most worthless lyrics. It’s like listening to grade-school children argue “Did not!” “Did too!” for a couple minutes. It gets old very quickly.

That’s why I’m writing this post – to give you the background for the song. Maybe the song will make a little more sense after my explanation.

A lot of people think the Beatles were good musicians, but a little-known fact is that they started out as stock traders. They did not do very well with stocks (they were a bit clueless about the concept), so they switched over to music.

Here is one of the songs they wrote about their stock-trading days. The lyrics were changed by their producer, but I have unearthed the original lyrics:

You say yes, I say no
You say stop, and I say go, go, go
Oh, no
You say good buy and I say sell low.
Sell low, sell low
I don’t know why you say to buy
when I sell low.
Sell low, sell low
I don’t know why you say to buy
when I sell low.

You say high, I say low
You say why, and I say “I don’t know”
Oh, no
You say good buy and I say sell low.
Sell low, sell low
I don’t know why you say to buy
when I sell low.
Sell low, sell low
I don’t know why you say to buy
when I sell low.

This post was inspired by some questionable enunciation during American Idol last week. Not everyone can cover Beatles songs well.

He puts my feet in the stocks; He watches all my paths.
