Baby You're a Rich Man ()
Authors: Lennon, McCartney; Lead vocal: Lennon

How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
Now that you know who you are, what do you want to be?
And have you traveled very far? far as the eye can see

How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
How often have you been there? often enough to know
What did you see when you were there? nothing that doesn't show

Baby, you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man, too
You keep all your money in a big brown bag inside a zoo, what a thing to do!
Baby, you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man, too

How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
Tuned to a natural E, happy to be that way
Now that you've found another key, what are you going to play?

Baby, you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man, too
You keep all your money in a big brown bag inside a zoo, what a thing to do!
(Baby!) baby, you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man, baby you're a
rich man, too (ohh!)

Baby, you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man (baby, baby!), baby you're
a rich man, too (whoa, oh!)

Baby, you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man...
