Carry That Weight

Paul McCartney

Once there was a way to get back homeward,
Once there was a way to get back home,
Sleep little darling, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby.

Golden slumbers fill your eyes,
Smiles awake when you rise,
Sleep little darling, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby.

Once there was a way to get back homeward.
Once there was a way to get back home,
Sleep little darling, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby.

Boy, you're gonna carry that weight,
Carry that weight a long time.
Boy, you're gonna carry that weight,
Carry that weight a long time.

I never give you my pillow,
I only send you my invitations.
And in the middle of the celebrations
I break down.

Boy, you're gonna carry that weight,
Carry that weight a long time.
Boy, you're gonna carry that weight,
Carry that weight a long time.

Oh yeah, alright,
Are you gonna be in my dreams tonight.
Love you, love you, love you, love you.
Love you, love you, love you, love you.

And in the end the love you take
Is equal to the love you make.

You never give me your money
You only give me your funny paper
And in the middle of negotiations
You break down

I never give you my number
I only give you my situation
And in the middle of investigation
I break down

Out of college, money spent
See no future, pay no rent
All the money's gone, nowhere to go
Any jobber got the sack
Monday morning turning back
Yellow lorry slow nowhere to go
But oh, that magic
Feeling, nowhere to go
Oh, that magic feeling
Nowhere to go

I never give you my pillow
I only send you my invitation
And in the middle of the celebrations
I break down

Boy, you gotta carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
Boy, you gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time

You never give me your money
You only give me your funny paper
And in the middle of negotiations
You break down
