The Beatles – Not Guilty 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:

Not guilty
For getting in your way
While you’re trying to steal the day.
Not guilty
And I’m not here for the rest,
I’m not trying to steal your vest.

I am not trying to be smart,
I only want what I can get.
I’m really sorry for your ageing head.
But like you heard me said:
Not guilty.

No use handing me a writ
While I’m trying to do my bit.

I don’t expect to take your heart.
I only want what I can get.
I’m really sorry that you’re underfed.
But like you heard me said:
Not guilty.

Not guilty
For looking like a freak,
Making friends with every Sikh.
Not guilty
For leading you astray
On the road to Mandalay.

I won’t upset the apple cart.
I only want what I can get.
I’m really sorry that you’ve been misled.
But like you heard me said:
Not guilty.
