Brian Epstein was a friend of mine!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, they all say that!
It’s true! I can tell you about the time-
when he lent me his favourite cravat!
Brian Epstein was a friend of mine!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, they all say that!

Hello Brian. Is it really forty years since you went away?
Standing here by your graveside wondering what to say
I can still see you smiling as I asked for a record to play-
there in NEMS in the listening booth-
where I first heard three chords and the truth-
and instead of more than forty years, it seems like yesterday.
