11 A little help from my friends

What would you do if I closed down your base,
Would you fire silver bullets at me?
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And your'll walk out and link arms with me.
I'll ban cruise with a little help from my friends,
I'll stop war with a little help from my friends.

What do I do with my family away?
Doesn't worry me. I'm not alone.
How do I feel by the end of the day?
I'm worn out, but I'm not on my own.
No, I get by with a little help from my friends,
I get high with a little help from my friends.

Would you believe in a peace that will last?
Yes, I'm certain that we'll make it stick this time.
What does it look like, this peace that will last?
I can't tell you, but I know it's mine.
We'll ban Cruise with a little help from our friends.
We'll do more with a little help from our friends.

Are there more women needed?
The world needs plenty of love.
Can it be any woman?
The world needs all of our love.
Oh we'll ban Cruise with a little help from our friends.
We'll close the base with a little help from our friends.
We'll do more with a little help from our friends.
We'll stop war with a little help from our friends.
