"Old Brown Shoe" Lyrics

by George Harrison

Original Manuscript (1969)

I'd like a love that's right but right is only half of what's wrong
I want a short haired girl who sometimes wears it twice as long
and now I'm steppin' out this old brown shoe, and baby I'm in
love with you
and I'm so glad you came here - it won't be the same here, now I'm
tellin' you

If I grow up I'll be a singer, wearing rings on every finger
not worrying what they or your say - I'll live and love and maybe someday
who knows? maybe; you'll still comfort me

I'm going to hold you tight and I never want to let you loose
You know you hold me up each time they try to drag me down
and when I see your smile replacing every thoughtless frown
You've got me escaping from this zooand baby I'm in live with you

I woke up last night there were people knocking on my home

I'd like a love that's right - but right is only half of what's wrong
I want a short haired girl - who sometimes wears it twice as long...
and I'm steppin' out this old brown shoe and baby I'm in
love with you

As Released by the Beatles (1969)

I want a love that's right
But right is only half of what's wrong
I want a short-haired girl
Who sometimes wears it twice as long

Now I'm stepping out this old brown shoe
Baby, I'm in love with you
We're so glad you came here
It won't be the same now I'm telling you.

Though you pick me up
From where some try to drag me down
When I see your smile
Replacing every thoughtless frown.

Got me escaping from this zoo
Baby, I'm in love with you
So glad you came here
It won't be the same now that I'm with you.

If I grow up I'll be a singer
Wearing rings on every finger
Not worrying what they or you say
I'll live and love and maybe someday
Who knows baby, you may comfort me (hey).

I may appear to be imperfect
My love is something you can't reject.
Changing faster than the weather
If you and me should get together,
Who knows baby, you may comfort me (hey).

I want that love of yours
To miss that love is something I'd hate.
Make an early start
Making sure that I'm not late (hey).

For your sweet top lip I'm in the queue
Baby, I'm in love with you.
So glad you came here
Won't be the same now that I'm with you.

I'm so glad you came here
It won't be the same now that I'm with you (yeah, yeah, yeah).

Do - dow, do - do - do
Do - dow, do - do - do
Do - dow, do - do - do
Do - dow, do - do - do
Do - dow, do - do - do
Do - dow, do - do - do
Do - dow, do - do - do
Do - dow, do - do - do
Do - dow, do - do - do
Do - dow...
