Beatles, The - I'm So Tired Lyrics




I'm so tired, I haven't slept a wink
I'm so tired, my mind is on the blink
I wonder should I get up and fix myself a drink
No, no, no

I'm so tired I don't know what to do
I'm so tired my mind is set on you
I wonder should I call you but I know what you would do

You'd say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke, it's doing me harm
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got
For a little peace of mind

I'm so tired, I'm feeling so upset
Although I'm so tired I'll have another cigarette
And curse Sir Walter Raleigh
He was such a stupid git

You'd say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke, it's doing me harm
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got
For a little peace of mind
I'd give you everything I've got
For a little peace of mind
I'd give you everything I've got
For a little peace of mind

(Monsieur, Monsieur, Monsieur, how about another one?)

  16. Leander Hamilton

    "I wrote it in India," John stated in 1980. "I couldn't sleep. I'd been meditating all day and then I couldn't sleep at night. We were not supposed to leave the room because of this thing about staying in one room for five days. So I was so tired I couldn't get to sleep. That's it."
    Upon examining the lyrics, however, there seems to be a little more to it than that. John had already begun to forge a strong friendship with artist Yoko Ono before they left for India. He was with his wife Cynthia on this trip, but he was missing Yoko tremendously while away. They had yet to start their affair, but he viewed Yoko as a 'kindred spirit' of sorts and wished that somehow he could have brought her along with him, although he knew that would have been more than awkward. These thoughts show up prominently in the lyrics, addressing Yoko directly: “My mind is set on you. I wonder, should I call you, but I know what you would do. You'd say I'm putting you on...I'd give you everything I've got for a little piece of mind.”

    I am so tired for real. But I have to go through a SCREAMING 15 second ad turn hear a song. My gosh

  32. John Fronczek

    One of my top four favorite songs from the White Album. A short, yet great song.

  33. Ariana Hunt

    It’s nice to hear this song when you are so tired. If John Lennon can have insomnia and feel so awful then you feel like you’re not alone.

  34. kat- twa

    the colege students homeworks nigth anthem

  35. super trooper aspie

    This is grunge

  36. cosmicdrifter287

    i never get tired of this song.

  37. Zackary Floyd

    I'm soooo tired yet I feel wide awake at the same time. I'll listen to this until I fall asleep.

  38. Ares

    I wonder should I call you. But I know what you would do :(

  39. Julia Naylor

    Insomnia the curse of humanity and bad relationships set to music.
    Sir Walter Raleigh was stupid not for promoting tabacco, but because he came back from a failed expedition and was executed by James the First when he should have run away and not returned at all.

  40. AC_ juicy CARLOS

    Wtf was that at the end

    Chris Lopez

    AC_ juicy CARLOS John Lennon mumbling “monsieur monsieur how bout another one”

  41. Osvaldo Menezes

    Música maravilhosa, adoro esse álbum.

  42. Brandon Coleman

    The way he says so is making me tired

  43. Kitty Bubbles

    this sounds like depression

    Jam

    Kitty Bubbles i listen to this when I feel the same way.

    Darien E

    The songs about being depressed over a girl so yeah

    Meitzi 15

    @Jam same

  44. NOT ME!

    sir walter raleigh just got blown the fuck out

  45. super trooper aspie

    Sounds a little bit like a grunge song

  46. Gega KS

    Masterpiece from John.
    All you need is the Beatles!

  47. Daniel Erbes

    When you’re asked to work late

  48. Compte Prive

    Out of all the beatles songs, I don't why I keep coming back to this one. "The way he sing s"Im soooo tired....I'm feeling so upset" I almost want to cry, it's song so simply, beautifully, and emotionally sung. I can feel it in my stomach when he sings it.

  49. Steve Eddy

    One of my least favorite Lennon tunes.

    Angvishhh

    Steve Eddy um why this is literally a masterpiece?

    Steve Eddy

    @Angvishhh He's done better. I'd rather listen to any of his songs rather than one about how tired he is and sounds like he was tired while doing it. I would call many of his songs masterpieces, but not this one. Just my opinion.

    Angvishhh

    Steve Eddy yea I guess but it’s relatable to many people

    Steve Eddy

    @Angvishhh Well that's awesome! Thanks for the info! And I didn't say I don't relate to it, it's just not my favorite Lennon tune. Take care.

  50. Steven Loredo

    After a long few days of tweaking it

  51. samsbro1952

    John's songs on the White Album were some of his best stuff evet.

  52. SHINee 케이팝

    I love this song

  53. SGT VIDEOS English

    "my mind is set on you"
    sound familiar?

    Kialangen

    Curious

    Paola Park

    I got my mind setttt on youu

    Compte Prive

    George Harrison

    Jason Roland

    Sounds like a cover of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k68Fob0QA_k
    Because it is. Recorded in early 60's. So, I don't think there's a connection to this song much at all.

    Joseph Pond

    @Jason Roland wow! Thanks for that link. I didn't know George didn't write that.

  54. brad pertner

    Heartbeat

  55. Melissa Dingle

    If you reverse song at the very end. It says: Paul is a dead man miss him miss him miss him.

  56. LeBeau

    "Paul is dead man. Miss him, miss him."

    charlie

    actually "monsiour monsiour, how about another one?"

    Raul Lopez

    He Is not you dont have prubs

    Only Sleeping

    Oh, look, a conspiracy idiot!

    blob darkass

    @Only Sleeping What makes the conspiracy idiots even more of an idiot is that Paul is not only still alive but still performs to this day and quite incredibly well for his age.

  57. rucksacks

    On day six myself right now

  58. Michael Maloney

    Pure Scouse Lennon at his best 😎😎😎😎 Shine On 79 today ♥️

    Tony England

    @Steph LOL - he doesn't sing "GIT", he sings "GET". I don't know where you're from in the UK but "get" in much of the North is the same thing as "git". Listen to the pronunciation at 1:23, he most certainly sings "GET", not "GIT".

    Tony England

    @Jason Cunliffe GET not GIT.

    Steph

    Tony England Nope, pretty sure he’s singing stupid GIT. I’ve never heard of git being the same as get, pretty sure that’s just an accent thing. It’s spelt git and it’s meant as being/meaning git. Yes, I am from the U.K.

    Alfonso Olmos

    Muy bien Rivas por la letra de esta rolaza " estoy tan cansado" y que los fab four nos siguen mostrando su talento vaya que si

    Meitzi 15

    I'm not from the U.K. but I'm pretty sure that it says git, not get.

  61. Happy Shitkicker

    A hard days night.

  62. Mat Thew

    Paul is dead

  63. Javier Muñoz López

    This song makes me feel sad, tired about some shit in the world we’re living but thanks for that John, with your music I can express my sadness.

    Berealzalot Dosays

    Art has the tendency to do shit like that

  64. Colin Devine

    Every time I feel tired this songs comes to mind

    Asif Leleyev

    Me too 😊

  65. Erika Pacheva

    play it backwards from the end and listen to the first line....

  66. Martín Abásolo

    Universidad re culia me tiene mas cansado q la chucha.

  67. Abandoned.Stage 。

    I don’t know but I prefer I’m only sleeping than this one even if it sounds good to heard

  68. I Sodomize And Torture Male Evangelical Christians

    I'm going into jail to serve a 9-month sentence in three weeks. Though I've totally accepted my fate in theory, the logistics and the unknown are difficult to handle. I've got purple circles under my eyes.

  72. liftboitardis

  74. cathy struska

    I fear I'm suffering from exhaustion. This is so true. I would give all i own for a little peace of mind and a good night's sleep....TJ STRUSKA

  75. Bella

    isn't it funny John wrote this one - Paul - Why don't we do it in the road? See their temperaments?

  76. Francesco De Maglie

    1:59 if you play it in reverse he says "paul is dead man miss him miss him miss him miss him!"

  77. Bluemilk92

    "Drunk History | The Story of Sir Walter Raleigh" *Watch it*
    So wait? Is John just a fan of Spain? Or is he making a dig at the dude who introduced new world crops _including tobacco_ which he's fond of, to the English? Someone please explain this.

    Bluemilk92

    @Bella Have you checked out/learned more about Sir Walter Releigh? Or are you implying the actual name isn't important? Like, it could have been anyone historically significant to English history?
    It's just such a weirdly specific name, about a man who is remembered historically for things that I can't relate in any way to the song. Even sub textually.

    Louise Murphy

    It's the tobacco he's talking about

    Luigi Barassi

    The song is about quitting smoking cigarettes.

    Luigi Barassi

    Bluemilk92 well it’s just my opinion, but he never says how much he wants to go to bed, but how tired he is. That could be of anything, but the dig at Walter Raleigh and how he keeps saying “my mind is stuck on you” gives me the idea that it’s cravings for a cig, which is why he’d erupt with “and curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid git!” After having “another cigarette”. But it’s probably not what it’s about, just what I like to think it is lol

  78. Babe Root

    One of Lennon's, and The Beatles' underrated tracks. Love this groove.

  79. Lorenzo Bidoli

    Where is Paul' s bass? George Martin the ruin of the Beatles....
    .

    Elisha Sontz Klein

    His absence is symbolic of him being dead. Listen to the end of the song backwards.

    Lorenzo Bidoli

    @Elisha Sontz Klein
    Stupid answer. No comment

  80. steve donahue

    this is the sound of a band running out of ideas

  81. noriemeha

    Did this inspire Mel Brooks in Blazing Saddles?

  82. Luis Laguna

    ¡ LENNON A GENIUS !

  83. Lorenzo Bidoli

    Wonderfull May be the best of John ...

  84. Seto Brownstone

    1:58 "Paul is dead man, miss him, miss him, MISS HIM" ? OK!
    First song that I played on guitar by the way. Good song..

    Alisa Oletič

    Paul isn't dead! It's just a fake romur get over it like everybody else!

  85. jimkos33

    For my Good Friend TVH in Hicksville … FAB4EVER !

  86. CertainBlank

    “Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid git.”
    John Lennon 1968

    ItzVox

    @Steph I've always seen the lyrics say either so idk

    Steph

    ItzVox No, trust me. I’m British and when I first heard the song I knew he was saying ‘git’ because I’m familiar with the word, we use it over here. It was only until I looked up the lyrics that I saw people were saying it was ‘get’ and I was like um no. Get doesn’t even make sense.

    penny bjorkland

    @BL Git is British slang for a childish fool.

  87. Jeremiah Carter

    First week of school be like...

  88. Bluegum

    me too ……...

  89. Dizziemiss Lizzie

    I feel ya, John! 🙄

  90. Clara Hubert

    “Paul is dead man miss him miss him miss him” 1:58

    Adele Pizzuti

    Exactly

  91. Juliette M-Jenkins

    Some of the lyrics would fit a speech you give/sing to your newborn in the middle of the night when it won't sleep... "I'm so tired, I haven't slept a wink
    I'm so tired, my mind is on the blink
    I wonder should I get up and fix myself a drink
    No, no, no...
    I'm so tired I don't know what to do
    ...

    You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
    You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
    You know I'd give you everything I've got
    For a little peace of mind"...

  92. Josh Nichols

    Great song, one of the best.

  93. Sabin Turner

    The only thing I don't like about this song is how short it is. Oh well. I guess I'll just have to keep playing it.

  94. Aaron Gibson

    This and happiness is a warm gun are relatable.

  95. Skeletones

    I'm sooooo tired :) :( :) :( :)
