Another Girl

  • For I have got another girl, another girl
    You're making me say that I've got nobody but you
    But as from today, well, I've got somebody that's new
    I ain't no fool and I don't take what I don't want

    For I have got another girl, another girl
    She's sweeter than all the girls and I've met quite a few
    Nobody in all the world can do what she can do
    And so I'm telling you this time you'd better stop

    For I have got another girl
    Another girl who will love me 'til the end
    Through thick and thin she will always be my friend

    I don't want to say that I've been unhappy with you
    But as from today, well, I've seen somebody that's new
    I ain't no fool and I don't take what I don't want

    For I have got another girl
    Another girl who will love me 'til the end
    Through thick and thin she will always be my friend

    I don't want to say that I've been unhappy with you
    But as from today, well, I've seen somebody that's new
    I ain't no fool and I don't take what I don't want

    For I have got another girl
    Another girl

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjPaul started out on guitar but it turned out I think that George was just a more competent lead player (at the time at least). I've even heard that Paul would write the melodies to George's lead parts (and that he and John would come up with Ringo's drum parts), though I don't know how true that is...
  • Tom from Freiburg, GermanyPaul was the first one in the Beatles to acquire a semi-acoustic Epiphone Casino guitar, which can be heard on this song (and many songs to come). He really started a fashion, because George and John purchased Casinos shortly after him. John later stripped his Casino off it's original sunburst furnish, thus turning it into his famous blonde Epiphone - now one of the most valuable guitars in history.
  • Megan from Stevenson, AlHA! I was at Wal-Mart yesterday and I sang this all thru the whole store! lol They make me sooo happy!
  • Alainna Earl from Chester, Pahey, I saw the video for the song. They were on the beach fooling around, playing each other's instruments and wearing jeans. I also heard a rumor about the girl in the video that paul was pretending to play guitar. I heard he had "relations" with her. BTw, i'm fifteen and love the beatles and anything that makes sense!!!
  • George from Belleville, NjAnother classic mainstream pop rock song.Very entertaining and satisfying musically to listen to.No other band could keep up with the quality of songs that the Beatles were producing.
  • Rick from Belfast, MeI agree with eric.....the Help album is sooooooo good to listen to...my #1 song is from this album(HELP)....but side 2 of Abbey Road is by far the greatest rock music of all time!
  • Steven from Waynesboro, VaPaul was originally a guitarist for the beatles - Stuart Sutcliff was the original bass player
  • Perry Gaffney from Gainesville, GaKids today dont even have a clue...If you could,ifthe Beatles wanted to...you could sue on infringement on every other song we listen to...
  • Claire from Miller's, MdI Luv The Beatles and i'm only 14:DHelp!iz an AWSUM movie!!So iz A Hard Day's Night:D Claire Miller's Maryland
  • Steven from Waynesboro, VaRemember that Stuart Sutcliff was the original bassist while paul played guitar till 1962
  • Eric from Buffalo, NyAnother underrated tune. The whole Help! album is sooo underrated. As time goes on people will appreciate it more I guess.
  • Catherine from Essex, United Kingdomi love this song!! im 16 and belong with the beatles, i hate todays world. but i can escape with the beatles and one day everything will come together. this is the first album i bought! its amazing, i love all the songs on this album, especially the ones that are in the film(which is so funny and cute) all the beatles are equally funny cute talentd and imaginative
  • Marshall from Grand Rapids, MiActually, Paul Mccartney's first song he did on guitar was "I'll Follow the Sun" (he played the acoustic)
  • Chelsey from London, EnglandPaul is cute on the movies of help!
  • Asef from Silkeborg, DenmarkIt reminds Me about a song by "The Swinging Blue Jeans called "Don´t go out into the rain".
  • Jimm from Cleveland, Tnpete....very much before this comment...paul didnt play lead guitar on paperback writer...he did the bass...
    unless george was able to do a lead bassline like that, which I'm not inclined to believe
  • Steve from Fenton, Moa great song on a great album...
  • Sarah from Pittsburgh, PaWhoa. Is it just me, or is it TERRIBLY FIERCELY WRONG that they don't have 'You're Gonna Lose That Girl' in their Beatles list?!?! *panic attack*
  • Mark from Lincoln, NeIf I had to choose 2 songs from HELP! as my favorites, I'd take "Another Girl" and "The Night Before" over "Help" and "Ticket to Ride."
  • Sylvia from London, England HILARIOUS in "Help!" the movie when in the music video for this George tries to play bass and Ringo plays guitar, and John drums....I love John's dancing as he plays!
  • Jon from Danville, Cayeah there definately a bass guitar in the song, probably george playing it.
  • Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScPete: Paperback Writer was released in 1966, and the album help was released in 1965. Paperback Writer was written after Another Girl.
  • Ernie from KranjThis was the first recorded appearance of Paul on guitar along with 'Ticket To Ride'. Paul also tackled the solo on 'Taxman' and 'Good Morning Good Morning'. By the way Loretta, there is a bass track on 'Another Girl'.
  • George from Itaberaba, BrazilLove this song, I think it's very underrated.PETE, "Paperback writer", was made after "Another girl".
  • Lee from Clearwater, FlLoved the guitar. It seems as though it is one of those songs that people are really split on. There are only a few Beatles tunes that I dont like. This aint one of them!
  • Stefanie Magura from Rock Hill, ScThe lead guitar is good on this one. I thought Paul originally played guitar before becoming the Beatles' bass player. why then, would this song be the first one Paul played lead on?
  • Ben from Cheverly, MdIts OK, not anything I'd reccomend though.
  • Rich from Birmingham Uk, EnglandPaul wrote "another girl" on holiday in tunisia.
  • Pete from Sheerness, CaBefore this Paul had played lead guitar on Paperback Writer as well as on Ticket to Ride on this album!
  • Tyson from Ruidoso, NmThis could be a reaction to the dumped feeling of Harrison's I need you, once you get over being dumped you find someone else, and you brag.
  • Mike from Kansas City, KsOnce the "Help" album came out John said he thought Paul's songs were better than his. That's what Paul was to John - a competitor. And a healthy competition it was too.
    "Another Girl" was my favorite Beatles song for years and years. I wore out four help albums playing that one song over and over. Thank God for CDs!
