Helter Skelter ()
Author: Paul McCartney; Lead vocal: Paul McCartney

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again.
Yeah yeah yeah.

Do you, don't you want me to love you
I'm coming down fast but I'm miles above you
Tell me tell me tell me come on tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer.

Helter skelter!
Helter skelter!
Helter skelter!
Yeah.

Will you, won't you want me to make you
I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you
Tell me tell me tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer.

Look out!
Helter skelter!
Helter skelter!
Helter skelter!
Oooh.

Look out, cause here she comes.

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
And I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
And I get to the bottom and I see you again.

Well do you, don't you want me to make you
I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you
Tell me tell me tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer.

Look out!
Helter skelter!
Helter skelter!
Helter skelter!
Look out!
Helter skelter!
She's coming down fast!
Yes she is!
Yes she is...

(Ringo: I've got blisters on my fingers!)
