Beatles, The - Baby, You're A Rich Man Lyrics




How does it feel to be
One of the beautiful people?
Now that you know who you are.
What do you want to be?
And have you travelled very far?
Far as the eyes can see

How does it feel to be
One of the beautiful people?
How often have you been there?
Often enough to know
What did you see when you were there?
Nothing that doesn't show
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man too
You keep all your money in a big brown bag inside a zoo
What a thing to do
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man too

How does it feel to be
One of the beautiful people?
Tuned to a natural E
Happy to be that way
Now that you've found another key
What are you going to play?
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man too
You keep all your money in a big brown bag inside a zoo
What a thing to do
Baby, baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man too
Baby you're a rich man
Baby you're a rich man
Baby, baby you're a rich man too (fade out)

    "How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?"

    Used as a note before Part I in the book Helter Skelter.

  4. David Hargreaves

    The Beatles are rubbish soooo overrated!!!!!!!.......(you know I am joking!!!).............

  5. Jerry Howard

    Gahhh Roooovy

  6. Justin Piche

    Good tune

  7. carly Piazz

    I didn't know it was Brian Jones on the oboe

    David Hargreaves

    I don think it was........

  8. Frankie Addiego

    John must have been clairvoyant. While this song was about Brian Epstein, he seemed to predict the fact that the Beatles' songs ended up in the hands of a rich man who lived in an amusement park, which had its own zoo.

  9. Tyller Mcatkins

    This is their best album. It had concept.

  10. Mike Taylor

    applies to Holywood !!

  11. pecosRoy

    rainbows meant something different back then or did they?

  12. Felipe Antunes

    Very better more The Beatles ...

    THE RUTLES :

    " CHIC, YOU'RE A POOR MAN ".

    ( Dirk McQuickly -- Ron Nasty. )

    Another day, another favourite Beatles track.

    Baby you're a rich man, too, oh
    Baby you're a rich man
    Baby you're a rich man (baby)

  21. aaronandkristy

    My favorite song out the full album.

  22. petestrat07

    These guys are so underrated. I cant believe nobody's ever heard of them.

  23. Paul McCharmly

    This was the tune I was obsessed with on my 8th grade trip, haven’t heard it since. Hearing it brings me back and makes me sad but also incredibly happy.

  24. RideTheWind

    The late Keith Grant of Olympic studio fame(where this song was recorded) did an interview not long before he passed wherein he said that the unusual organ sound that resembles the sound of an India musical instrument was actually created spontaneously by John rolling an orange around the keyboard of an organ. That blew me away. Simple spontaneous creative genius stuff really.

  25. Clazzified Adz

    This music feels like being in the medieval period

  26. Marcus Watt

    Who remastered this? Try again.

  27. Mike Taylor

    Applies especially to Holywood !

  28. Tyreek Murillo

    what is that flute sounding instrument called

  29. Paul Buttrill

    Musically fantastic.

  30. Melody Mundy

    My son is hearing this song for the first time. 24 year old African American. He asked did I know what’s the song was about? I said “being rich.” He said, “mom, what person keeps all that money in a big brown bag? A drug dealer! That song is about selling drugs!” Okay....

  31. karell t

    I can listen to the BASS line alone!! (Black man from BK) ☺

    That Rickenbacker bass sounds unbelievable in this tune.

  40. Andrew Rossi

    How does it feel to be

  57. Richard Lawson

    The fall of 1967. What could be better?

  58. Chris Kelly

    I am beautiful,so I no how it feels

  59. Fayez Abedaziz

    Ha ha...ironically, the Beatles, everyone of them was/is a cheap bastard.
    Now, before anyone gets shook at that, The Beatles are my favorite musicians/band, along with ELO. But it's true, musicians with many millions are all cheap bastard and bitches.
    It is what it is, dig? Oh and actors and actresses are cheap bastards and cheap bastardetes, too. They are no models for morality or charitable giving. Benefit concerts are paid by...fans that buy the tickets...what a deal, huh

  60. Tristan Burton

    This will be my theme/main song if I win the Mega$$$$ tonight!

  61. Troy Wansley

    This is such a loose jam, claps are live a bit off drums choice of the kit is crazy so flat but present the bass an the repetition of the vocals. Superb. How does it feel to be...

  62. James Franson

    GOD,S. BEST, people, get it.or don,t

  63. joker 121

    I'm pretty sure this song is about Brian Epstein.

    John P

    Well in rehearsals John sang "Baby you're a rich fag jew" so..could be lol

  64. Joey Benoit

    Sorry I couldn't continue my story its pretty long. But anyway Neal schon did incredible work with Carlos Santana specifically the song a singing winds! Okay peace and love! San Francisco in Haight-Ashbury! Hey sal Valentino I say hello!

  65. Joey Benoit

    I remember 1966? No 67! I was born in San Francisco I was raised in San Leandro sock Carlos Santana when I was nine in Hayward! I met sal Valentino from the beau brummels! A good friend of mine while I was surfing in 1979 in San Diego! Scott sto!! Was a guy I met I was surfing he played guitar! But he told me he played with a guy named Neal schon? Yes that Neil from journey! I think they were 12 or 13?but Scott would come home and plug is Les Paul Gibson Les Paul gold Les Paul into his Marshall and just do these amazing runs for about 6 hours and then he would tuna to eat and put a slide on like Dwayne!!! Played with Neil Sean before Neal played with SantanaScott Stoll

  75. Benjamin Stevens

    How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?

  76. Nige G

    All of their songs are so individual, no two songs sound alike. I can't think of another band that even comes close to the Beatles.

  77. NYtown62

    I ❤️ The Beatles!

  78. mrbobevans

    Yes, we have to compare this Lennon song to Marty Robbins' self-penned "Rich, Rich, Man." And yes Marty's song is way better and much more complex. He wrote better songs and had a much better voice than Lennon. And Marty wrote almost all of his songs by himself, covering a wide spectrum of genres - blues, rock, country, pop, western, gospel, calypso, folk, hawaiian, bluegrass. And there were only a few songs that weren't excellent. Could Lennon have written songs like "At the end of a long, lonely day', "Pride and the Badge", "The Girl from Spanish Town", "Man Walks Among Us", "The way I loved You Best", "Don't Worry" "El Paso" etc. Don't think so. Marty stayed with his wife, was a member of the US Navy, a staunch conservative, and a race car driver/owner. Hundred years from now, Marty will be remembered way more than John Lennon. Also, Marty's "Baby, I need you" is better than George's "I need you."

  79. James Challoner

    So good

  80. Oldbmwr100rs

    Six amazing hits and seriously timeless works of music for what was basically a badly done throw away TV special. The rest of the songs on the album were great as well, just didn't get endless play. Hard to believe this band could do this. In ways I feel this album had some better music than Sgt Pepper.

  81. Crimson Kng

    I was reading about the people who ignore subpoenas, change their sworn testimony, and lie in public. And only one line came to mind: How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?

  82. José Candal

    - Lead Vocals, Piano & Clavioline: John Lennon
    - Bass & Piano: Paul McCartney
    - Lead & Rhythm Guitars, Handclaps: George Harrison
    - Drums, Tambourine, Maracas & Handclaps: Ringo Starr
    - Vibraphone: Eddie Kramer
    - Backing Vocals: Paul McCartney, George Harrison & Mick Jagger

    Michael Moore

    Are you sure brian Jones wasn't on this

    José Candal

    @Michael Moore according to my reliable sources, Brian Jones was not on this recording session.
    Brian was only present in the recording of two Beatles songs: "Yellow Submarine" and "You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)".

  83. Ivan S. A

    Baby youre a rich fag jew???

  84. Melissa Vaca

    Part of the reason I love this song it’s because of Brian Jones’ contribution

    692MOM

    It makes the whole song in my opinion!

  85. MR. Nesto

    FANTÁSTICO!!!!!!!!!

  86. Big Paulie

    I love the old Capitol hard vinyl with the rainbow labels. Especially if it was a Beatles album

  87. Alan Grossman

    This song may have been in some movie about some jerk, but it was created by The Beatles to salute their manager Brian Epstein. That fact should be remembered first and foremost.

    joker 121

    Alan Grossman - I thought it was a dig at Brian Epstein?.

    Alan Grossman

    @joker 121 No, it was a tribute to him. Luckily, he got to hear it before he died.

  88. Fernando

    Excellent song. For me, the best album from The Beatles.

  89. joseph parish

    You know this song is about Brian Epstein...And apparently the Beatles alternately sang..."Baby you're a rich fag Jew"...But as Lennon always said...They were the biggest bastards around.

  90. its.avenoir

    Your mother should know i am The walrus

  91. alan stewart

    I was always hoping they would reunite, every year just hoping and hoping up until John got shot

  92. novanoprod

    the title sounds like one of those auto generated song titles

  93. Bryan Blandon

    I LOVE THIS SONG. Never really regarded it the same as the other MMT till now. It’s sooo good.

  94. william marik

    so very british.

  95. DottyBuffalo778

    2 48 baby jager is out of tune

  96. Joe Halliday

    The original lyric was "keep all your money in a big brown bad inside the Louvre" not zoo. Epstein asked them to change it to avoid copyright.
