Eleanor Rigby Lyrics

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice
In the church where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream

Waits at the window, wearing the face
That she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Father McKenzie, writing the words
of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near

Look at him working, darning his socks
In the night when there's nobody there
What does he care?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby, died in the church
And was buried along with her name
Nobody came

Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt
From his hands as he walks from the grave
No one was saved

All the lonely people
(Ah, look at all the lonely people)
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
(Ah, look at all the lonely people)
Where do they all belong?

In 400 years, people are still going to love The Beatles, in 40 years, people are going to forget Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber. Look at all the lonely people.

This is crazy. My choir teacher wants us to sing it but we won't 'cos we think it's nuts. Nuts and real depressing. Definitely depressing. Peace!

This song reminds me of The Great Gatsby when he dies at the end and like no one goes to his funeral. That would be so terrible. This song is amazing! I love The Beatles.
