John Lennon's Hand-Written Lyrics Up for Bid
John Lennon's handwritten lyrics for the The Beatles' song "A Day in the Life" are expected to sell for as much as $700,000 when they go under the hammer in New York in June. The lyrics appear on a double-sided sheet of paper, which includes corrections and amendments made in red ink.
"A Day in the Life" is the final track on the band's 1967 "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album and recently came 26th in Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 greatest songs of all time poll. Lennon's writings aren't expected to break the record for Beatles lyrics, set by "All You Need Is Love", which fetched $1 million in 2005.
The lyrics sheet previously belonged to Beatles' road manager Mal Evans. The song itself has a historical element for The BBC banned it from being aired due to lyrics that encouraged drug use.
