Annotationen

Anfangs 1968 las John Lennon die Aphorismen Sand and Foam des libanesischen Autors Kahlil Gibran und entnahm dem Buch zwei Sätze, die in Julia eingingen: «Half of what I say is meaningless; but I say it so that the other half may reach you» und «When Life does not find a singer to sing her heart she produces a philosopher to speak her mind».
Die Melodie bleibt auf ein und dem selben Ton bis zum Wort «Julia».

Lyrics

Half of what I say is meaningless But I say it just to reach you, Julia Julia, Julia, ocean child, calls me So I sing a song of love, Julia Julia, seashell eyes, windy smile, calls me So I sing a song of love, Julia Her hair of floating sky is shimmering, glimmering In the sun Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me So I sing a song of love, Julia When I cannot sing my heart I can only speak my mind, Julia Julia, sleeping sand, silent cloud, touch me So I sing a song of love, Julia Hum hum hum...calls me So I sing a song of love for Julia, Julia, Julia
