The Beatles – Match Box Song Lyrics

About The Beatles: The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. They became the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed act in the history of popular music. Their best-known lineup consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, they later utilised several genres, ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. In the early 1960s, their enormous popularity first emerged as “Beatlemania”, but as their songwriting grew in sophistication, they came to be perceived by many fans and cultural observers as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the era’s sociocultural revolutions.

Lyrics:

I said I’m sitting here watching
Matchbox hole in my clothes
I said I’m sitting here wondering
Matchbox hole in my clothes
I ain’t got no matches, but I sure got a long way to go

I’m an old poor boy
I’m a long way from home
I’m an old poor boy
And I’m a long way from home
I’ve never been happy
‘Cause everything I ever did was wrong

Well, if you don’t want my peaches, honey
Please don’t shake my tree
If you don’t want any of those peaches, honey
Please don’t mess around my tree
I’ve got news for you, baby
Leave me here in misery, all right

Well, let me be your little dog
Till your big dog comes
Let me be your little dog
Till your big dog comes
And when your big dog gets here
Watch how your puppy dog runs

Well, I said I’m sitting here watching
Matchbox hole in my clothes
I said I’m sitting here watching
Matchbox hole in my clothes
I ain’t got no matches, but I sure got a long way to go
