Beatles Lyrics Go On Sale
Everybody knows that the writing credits on the Beatles classic “Sgt Pepper” album may say Lennon/McCartney. But, everybody also knows it was John Lennon who wrote the song “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” The handwritten lyrics to that song will be offered at auction in Beverly Hills next month. The auction house, Profiles in History, expects the lyric sheet, featuring the opening lyric and a Lennon doodle to sell for more than 200-thousand dollars. According to legend, Lennon was inspired by his son, Julian. As a child, he’d drawn a picture of a classmate named Lucy. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!
