Songs from movie soundtrack

Yellow Submarine sung by The Beatles. Listen or download original track and read the lyrics.

In the town where I was born,
Lived a man who sailed the sea,
And he told us of his life,
In the land of submarines.
So we sailed on to the sun,
Till we found the sea of green,
And we lived beneath the waves,
In our yellow submarine.
We all live in a yellow submarine,
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine,
And our friends are all aboard,
Many more of them live next door,
And the band begins to play.
We all live in a yellow submarine,
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine,
As we live a life of ease,
Everyone of us has all we need,
Sky of blue and sea of green,
In our yellow submarine.
We all live in a yellow submarine,
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine.
We all live in a yellow submarine,
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine,

When I'm Sixty-Four


Ringo: I could have sworn there was a yellow submarine. But that isn't logical, is it? It must have been one of them unidentified flying cupcakes or a figment of my imagination.

John: You surprise me, Ringo. Dealing in abstracts.
Ringo: Just because I'm a drummer.

John: There's a Cyclops.
Paul: Can't be. He's got two eyes.
John: Then it must be a bi-Cyclops.
George: There's another one.
John: A whole cyclopedia.

Jeremy Hillary Boob, PhD.: I must complete my bust, two novels, finish my blueprints, begin my beguine.
John: Must you always talk in rhyme?
Jeremy Hillary Boob, PhD.: If I spoke prose, you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about. Ad hoc, ad loc and quid pro quo. So little time, so much to know.

Old Fred: We'll get other instruments, Lord Mayor.
Lord Mayor: Not a chance. The Meanies captured everything that maketh music.
Paul: They hate music that much, do they?
Lord Mayor: They shrink at the very sound.

Paul: All right, the coast is clear.
George: Now's our chance.
Ringo: But how'll we get over?
John: Easy. Follow me.

Ringo: Open your mouth, it won't hurt. John, you haven't half got a big mouth, haven't you?
John: It's easy. All you need is love.

Jeremy: Where ground is soft most often grows, arise, arise, arouse, a rose. A rosy nose?
Chief Blue Meanie: Speak your last piece!
Jeremy: Peace, peace, supplant the doom and the gloom.

Old Fred: By Neptune's knickerbockers, she's puttered out.
John: Maybe we should call a road service.
Paul: Can't. No road.
Ringo: And we're not sub-scribers.
Paul, John, George: Subscribers!

Ringo: It's all a load of Father Xmas's.
Paul: It's not. It's Father Time.
Ringo: How do you know?
Paul: I read it in a book.

Ringo: He's so smart, he doesn't even remember what he knows.
Paul: Why don't we show him our motor?
Jeremy Hillary Boob, PhD.: Turbo-prop, super-combustible spring. Metrocyclonic and stereophonic, this motor, I see, has a broken down thing.

George: How many do you think there are in all?
Jeremy: Enough to fill the Albert Hall.

Paul: Didn't Old Fred mention something about the Sea of Holes just before the Sea of Green?

John: Jeremy, what do you know about holes?
Jeremy: There are simply no holes in my education.
Paul: You mean you haven't composed a whole book?

John: Pepperland, a bit salty around the edges.

Paul: Right, men. We've made it.
George: Instruments at the ready.
John: Okay, on the beat. A-one, a-two, a-three, a-four, a-five, a-six.
Ringo: Can't you make it three?
John: All right. On the beat of three... A-one, a-two, a-three...

Chief Blue Meanie: The hills are alive...
Max: With the sound of music.
Chief Blue Meanie: Who is responsible for this?
Max: Rimsky Korsakov? Guy Lombardo?
Chief Blue Meanie: My dear friend let us not forget that heaven is blue.

George: Hey, that's a funny place to leave a goldfish bowl.
John: In Pepperland, all things are possible.
Paul: It's not a goldfish bowl.
John: Just a big glass bowl, then.
Paul: It's blue glass.
Ringo: It must be from Kentucky.

Ringo: Hello, brother.
Ringo: Yeah, without a doubt.

George: We're the spitting image of each other.
George: Golly, yeah.

John: I'm led to believe that you're an extension of my personality.
John: Yes, I'm the alter-ego man.
John: And I'm the ego man, goo goo, g'joob.

John: Steady on. You don't want to show your motor to just anybody.
George: But this is a nobody.
Jeremy Hillary Boob, PhD.: Medic, pedic, zed oblique, orphic, morphic, dorphic, Greek. Ad hoc, ad loc and quid pro quo. So little time, so much to know.
John: Can you tell us where we're at?
Jeremy Hillary Boob, PhD.: A true Socratic query, that.
John: And who the Billy Shears are you?
Jeremy Hillary Boob, PhD.: Who? Who indeed am I?
John: Jeremy?
Paul: Hillary?
George: Boob?
Ringo: Ph. D?
George, John, Paul, Ringo: Who?
Jeremy Hillary Boob, PhD.: Eminent physicist, polyglot, classicist, prize-winning botanist, hard biting satirist, talented pianist, good dentist, too.
George: Lousy poet.
Jeremy Hillary Boob, PhD.: Critic's voice, take your choice.
Ringo: Must be one of them angry young men.
  John: Break the glass.
George: We can't!
Paul: It's Beatle-proof.
John: Nothing is Beatle-proof!

Chief Blue Meanie: Right, Max?
Max: Yes, Your Blueness.
Chief Blue Meanie: What? We Meanies only take no for an answer.

Old Fred: Sir, the Meanies are coming!
Lord Mayor: Not here, Young Fred. They wouldn't dare.
Old Fred: They would. They are. What are you going to do?
Lord Mayor: Finish the quartet.

Ringo: Compared with my life, Eleanor Rigby's was a gay, mad whirl. I feel like an old, splintered drumstick.
Old Fred: What you need is 'H' for hurry, 'E' for ergent, 'L' for love me and 'P' for please help.

Old Fred: Bless you!
Ringo: Did I sneeze?

Old Fred: Frankenstein?
Ringo: I used to go out with his sister.
Old Fred: His sister?
Ringo: Yeah. Phyllis. I wonder what would happen if I pulled this lever.
John: Ringo, I've just had the strangest dream.
Ringo: I warned you not to eat on an empty stomach.

John: What day is it?
Ringo: Sitarday.
John: Then George will be here.

The movie Yellow Submarine was a box-office hit, creative images, and its soundtrack of Beatles songs. The recurring line "It's all in the mind" is taken from The Goon Show. The dialogue is littered with puns, double entendres, and Beatles in-jokes, many scripted by poet Roger McGough. The Beatles' animated personas were based on their appearance in the promotional film for the song "Strawberry Fields Forever". The real Beatles participated only in the closing scene of the film, with the fictional counterparts of the Beatles voiced by other actors.


"The Yellow Submarine movie exists as pure charm, expressed in fantastical imagery on the Beatles unforgettable music."

Intro line

80,000 leagues beneath the sea it lay, or lie, I'm not too sure. Pepperland is a tickle of joy on the blue belly of the universe.

End lines

Paul McCartney: Catchy tune, that.
Ringo Starr: I can't seem to get it out of my head.
George Harrison: Then shake it.
Ringo Starr: That's what we've been doing all night.
Paul McCartney: Yeah, it was a great party.
George Harrison: And we brought back lots of lovely souvenirs. Here is the motor.
Paul McCartney: I've got a little love.
Ringo Starr: And I've got a hole in my pocket.
Paul McCartney: A hole?
Ringo Starr: Half a hole, anyway. I gave the rest to Jeremy.
George Harrison: What can he do with half a hole?
Paul McCartney: Fix it to keep his mind from wandering.
Ringo Starr: Look at John, will you?
Paul McCartney: What's the matter, John?
John Lennon: Blue Meanies? Newer and bluer Meanies have been sighted within the vicinity of this theatre. There's only one way to go out.
George Harrison: How's that?
John Lennon: Singing.
