Blue Jay Way ()
Author: George Harrison; Lead vocal: George Harrison

There's a fog upon L.A.
And my friends have lost their way
We'll be over soon they said
Now they've lost themselves instead

Please don't be long, please don't you be very long
Please don't be long, or I may be asleep

Well it only goes to show
And I told them where to go
Ask a policeman on the street
There's so many there to meet!

Please don't be long, (don't be long) please don't you be very long (don't be long!)
Please don't be long, or I may be asleep

Now it's past my bed I know (know!)
And I'd really like to go (go!)
Soon will be the break of day (day!)
Sitting here in Blue Jay Way (way!)

Please don't be long (don't be long) please don't you be very long (don't be long)
Please don't be long or I may be asleep.
Please don't be long, please don't you be very long
Please don't be long

Please don't be long please don't you be very long
Please don't be long

Please don't be long, please don't you be very long
Please don't be long
Don't be long, don't be long, don't be long!
Don't be long, don't be long, don't be long
Don't be long!
