McCartney’s ‘A World Without Love’ (w/ Corrected Lyric)

Record Label
As posted yesterday, I recorded this tune using an incorrect lyric grabbed off the web. Well, you just don’t do that to a Paul McCartney tune! Press the play button below to hear our take of ‘A World Without Love’.

Ya Can’t Trust Lyrics on the Net!

Was working up a tune for The Montereys and grabbed an erroneous lyric off a music web site. I suspected that the word-in-question was ‘know’, but, alas, the lyric read, ‘lose’. So that’s how I recorded it! Now, I discover (in his own handwriting) that Paul McCartney wrote, ‘know’!!! And that makes much more sense. Push the play button, below, to hear our version.

This tune only reached #85 on the national record charts in 1965 but – for whatever reason – it became an instant staple for local garage bands. In fact, I can’t recall a local band that *didn’t* have ‘Little Black Egg’ in their setlist.
Here’s my rendition recorded at home:
