What Happened to The Beatles?

It's been a hard day's nightAnd I've been working like a dogIt's been a hard day's nightI should be sleeping like a logBut when I get home to youI find the things that you doWill make me feel alright.

You know I work all dayTo get you money to buy you thingsAnd it's worth it just to hear you sayYou're going to give me ev'rythingSo why on earth should I moan'Cause when I get you aloneYou know I feel ok

When I'm home ev'rything seems to be rightWhen I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight, yeh

It's been a hard day's nightAnd I've been working like a dogIt's been a hard day's nightI should be sleeping like a logBut when I get home to youI find the things that you doWill make me feel alright.
