  • And I've run out of pale ale
    And I feel like I'm in jail
    And my music bores me once again
    And I've been on the pinball
    And I know longer know it all
    And they say that you never know when you're insane

    Got fleas in my bedroom
    Got flies in my bathroom
    And the cat just finished off the bread
    So I walk over Soho
    And I read about Monroe
    And I wonder was she really what they said

    Got a call from a good friend
    Come on down for the weekend
    Didn't know if I could spare the time
    I knew a woman who was crazy
    About a boy who was lazy
    But it didn't work out 'cos they just couldn't make it rhyme

    Hey Jude you were alright
    I could have grooved with you all night
    But you turned your back on the part again
    Mama if i keep my head clean
    Will I really have a good dream
    Or will I wake up in confusion just the same

    And I've run out of pale ale
    And I feel like I'm in jail
    Got fleas in the bedroom
    Got flies in the bathroom
    Got a call from a good friend
    Come on down for the weekend
    Hey Jude you were alright
    I could have grooved with you all night

    And I've been on the pale ale
    And I feel like a pinball Writer/s: BRIAN PROTHEROE
