Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise) Lyrics


Lennon/McCartney


We're Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
We hope you have enjoyed the show
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
We're sorry but it's time to go.
Sergeant Pepper's lonely.
Sergeant Pepper's lonely.
Sergeant Pepper's lonely.
Sergeant Pepper's lonely.
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
We'd like to thank you once again
Sergeant Pepper's one and only Lonely Hearts Club Band
It's getting very near the end
Sergeant Pepper's lonely
Sergeant Pepper's lonely
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Anomalies

0:02-0:03
In the introduction, John says "Look up, Byeee". An increase in hum is heard just before this as the faders open. On mono versions, just before the band start, there is more talking including what sounds like John saying "People City" just after the cluck.
0:02-0:04
Many thanks to 'Dirk from Germany' for this gem, reproduced verbatim:-

"I read your page with great interest but I think on "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" at 0:09/0:10 a man shouts the German words "Zieh die Hose aus!" which means something like "Take off your trouser!".

I've no idea if this is a wind-up, or serious, but it was so funny I just had to include it. If it was serious, I'm sorry, but I'm still smiling :)

0:10-0:15
Someone says "Sorry, What?, This one?" on the bass drum beats. Followed by a half awake "Haah?" from Lennon. Paul sings something high pitched, sounds like " cat".
1:15-1:17
After Paul's "Wooo", John says "Paul, hold my guitar for me". Heard using OOPS. Also Paul heard really going mad singing. On mono versions this is heard better, "We'll be back" or "We're the band, the greatest band of all time", and a faint "Sergeant Peppers BAND!", finishing on the final chord

A reprise of the first song and title track of the album. A "concept album," it was produced as if Sgt. Pepper's was a real band.
Produced in a rush when they decided to bring back the theme song to introduce the last track on the album, "A Day In The Life."
The audience sounds were dubbed in to make it sound live.
Lennon, McCartney, and Harrison shared lead vocals.
The idea to reprise this came from Neil Aspinall, The Beatles' friend and road manager.
