Paul McCartney - The Fool On The Hill Lyrics

Day after day alone on the hill,
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still,
But nobody wants to know him,
They can see that he's just a fool,
And he never gives an answer,
But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down,
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning around.

Well on his way his head in a cloud,
The man of a thousand voices talking percetly loud
But nobody ever hears him,
Or the sound he appears to make,
And he never seems to notice,
But the fool on the hill . . .
Nobody seems to like him
They can tell what he wants to do.
And he never shows his feelings,
But the fool on the hill . . .

  23. Nad Afro

    Day after day
    Alone on a hill
    The man with the foolish grin
    Is keeping perfectly still
    But nobody wants to know him
    They can see that he's just a fool
    And he never gives an answer

    But the fool on the hill
    Sees the sun going down
    And the eyes in his head
    See the world spinning 'round

    Well on the way
    Head in a cloud
    The man of a thousand voices
    Talking perfectly loud

    But nobody ever hears him
    Or the sound he appears to make
    And he never seems to notice

    But the fool on the hill
    Sees the sun going down
    And the eyes in his head
    See the world spinning 'round

    And nobody seems to like him
    They can tell what he wants to do
    And he never shows his feelings

    But the fool on the hill
    Sees the sun going down

  44. Sherie Brodigan

    When I hear this in my head it's the one and only Paul McCartney who sounds relaxed and peaceful. Nothing like a, charlatan spirit. And screw you Linda for being a lez and believing an image from the video tucked in, a baby corb.(India).

  45. Rose Amethyst

    loved what he did in the end, bravo my man

  46. Beatle Stories


  47. ian f

    Can ANYBODY please tell me why Youtube keep trying to ram Grammarly down our throats ? I don't get it. Everything you try to watch you get Grammarly, Grammarly, Grammarly in between it. If it's supposed to be a free programme, why are they spending what must be inordinate amounts of money on advertising it ? Is there something I'm missing here ? I know they need advertising revenue to run. I get that bit. But why is it the same irritating ads every time ?

  48. Jay Sewall

    Excellent sound too!

  49. gioknows

    Perhaps Faul's greatest song ever.

  50. Ahmad Alenezi

    this song about flat earth

  51. Si Fi

    He so deserves a Nobel Prize, or an entirely new award, to recognise his unique impact on the WORLD for over half a century, and hopefully many more years. His songs have depth, are uplifting, speak of the human condition and have touched millions of people. The underlying message being peace/love, who else has spread that message as elegantly??

  52. LoveFlatfootin1


  53. Geomate

    Wow, another live version. Nooooooooooo.

  54. Christine Brett

    My favourite song!!

  55. Stephen Howlett

    What a beautiful song from start to finish.

  56. Steven Binns

    What is the song about?

  57. Steven Binns

    The song Fool on The Hill is full of prejudice against the mentally ill, who can't help being the way they are. Anyone can find themselves in an asylum.

  58. Tony Wilson


  59. Jane Atyeo

    Is he telling us the Earth is Flat

  60. Steven Binns

    The song 'fool on the hill' is full of prejudice against the mentally ill, who can't help the way they are. Are you out there Sir Paul Mccartney? Anyone can find themselves in an asylum. Steven



  62. rr grr

    Wow these horrible ads are ruining all videos with obnoxious before and after garbage.

  63. Rudy Wilson

    SOMEHOW I'M AGAIN OVERWHELMED AT AMAZING THE BEATLES WERE AND HOW THEY TOOK OVER THE ENTIRE WORLD...... maybe seeing the film, YESTERDAY' got me..its weak, a bit trite,..doesn't treat the beatles seriously but some great moments.......the LADS were supernatural..... "what would the world be if the beatles hadn't happened?????"

  64. Edyta Gajewska


  65. Farouk Boughedir

    I love this song, but the lyrics seem uncomplete, please PAul , make us a better end..

  66. penny lane

    I've been thinking a lot as of late. Paul McCartney is the greatest songwriter of all time, and there are plenty others to choose from. Not looking for arguments. This is from somebody, that back in junior high, was listening to the song 'Coming Up.' Today, I'm listening to 'Fool on the Hill.' There aren't any bad songs with Paul. How do you just sit there in front of a crowd and write a song? This is all beyond me. Think for a moment, if you will. Everything, having to do with Paul, is like a brilliant ray of sunshine. It's his soul, I do believe. He is peaceful and cares about animals and the world and people. He loved Linda and created a beautiful family along with all the music of 'Wings'. You don't see him on tabloids or on the news because he is a loud mouth wanting attention. I wish the world was filled with more people like him. I'm just wanting to know if anybody agrees and sees exactly what I see. Can I get thumbs up, people? Paul's birthday was two days ago. Happy belated birthday, Paul!

  67. Oh La La!

    Legend 👏👏👏

  68. Lisa Anzardo

    Happy Birthday Sir Paul <3

    Obra prima

  94. Belle Løve

    When this performance happened?

  95. jrb designer alliance

    Mc Cartney  never seemed the full shilling, but to compare with John Lennon, who was perhaps overloaded, by, hmm, social responsibility, a need to care and be responsible etc. and so forth, until Yoko, helped him turn into, well rather long haired soppy hippy type,, and, hmm, a less testosterone equipped, we might say a, short hand the picture,..or not?

  96. Leiann Webster

    What film was this from?

  97. Paul Christian Sonajo

    Fool on the hill by The Beatles written by Paul McCartney on the year 1967
