Lyrics

It's been a hard day's night, And I've been working like a dog, It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log, But when I get home to you, I find the things that you do, Will make me feel alright. You know I work all day, To get you money to buy you things, And it's worth it just to hear you say, You're gonna give me ev'rything, So why on earth should I moan, 'Cos when I get you alone, You know I feel okay. When I'm home ev'rything seems to be right, When I'm home feeling you holding me Tight, tight, yeh. It's been a hard day's night, And I've been working like a dog, It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log, But when I get home to you, I find the things that you do, Will make me feel alright. You know I work all day, To get you money to buy you things, And it's worth it just to hear you say, You're gonna give me ev'rything, So why on earth should I moan, 'Cos when I get you alone, You know I feel okay. When I'm home ev'rything seems to be right, When I'm home feeling you holding me Tight, tight, yeh. It's been a hard day's night, And I've been working like a dog, It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log, But when I get home to you, I find the things that you do, Will make me feel alright.
