"The Fool on the Hill" Lyrics

by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Original Manuscript (1967)

The fool on the hill
sees the sun going down
+ the eyes in his head see the world
spinning
round

Day after day alone on a hill
the man with the foolish grin is sitting
perfectly still. And nobody wants
to know him they can see he's just a fool

As Released by the Beatles (1967)

Day after day, alone on a hill
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him
They can see that he's just a fool
And he never gives an answer.

But the fool on the hill sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head see the world spinning round.

Well on the way, head in a cloud
The man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud
But nobody ever hears him
Or the sound he appears to make
And he never seems to notice.

But the fool on the hill sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head see the world spinning round.

And nobody seems to like him
They can tell what he wants to do
And he never shows his feelings.

But the fool on the hill sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head see the world spinning round.

Oh - oh - oh!
Round 'n' round 'n' round 'n' round 'n' round.

He never listens to them
He knows that they're the fool
They don't like him.

The fool on the hill sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head see the world spinning round.

Oh, round 'n' round 'n' round 'n' round.

Oh!
