ELEANOR RIGBY

Eleanor Rigby
Picks up the rice in the church
Where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window
Wearing a face
That she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for ?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from ?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong ?

Father McKenzie writing the words
To a sermon that no one will hear
Oh, no one comes near
Look at him working
Darning the socks in the night
When there's nobody there
Nobody cares

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from ?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong ?

DO YOU KNOW THE WAY TO SAN JOSE?

Do you know the way to San Jose?
I've been away so long
I may go wrong and lose my way

Do you know the way to San Jose?
I'm going back to find some peace of mind in San Jose

L.A. is a great big freeway
Put a hundred down and buy a car
In a week, maybe two, they'll make you a star
Weeks turn into years
How quick they pass
And all the stars that never were are parking cars and pumping gas

Do you know the way to San Jose?
I've got lots of friends in San Jose
Do you know the way to San Jose?
I've got lots of friends in San Jose

MRS. ROBINSON

And here's to you Mrs. Robinson
Jesus loves you more than you will know
(Wo, wo, wo)
God bless you, please, Mrs. Robinson
Heaven holds a place for those who pray
(Hey, hey, hey)

We'd like to know a little bit
About you for our files
We'd like to help you
Learn to help yourself
Look around you
All you see are sympathetic eyes
Stroll around the grounds
Until you feel at home

And here's to you Mrs. Robinson
Jesus loves you more than you will know
(Wo, wo, wo)
God bless you, please, Mrs. Robinson
Heaven holds a place for those who pray
(Hey, hey, hey)
