My tribute to Pete Best, who turned out to be a very cool dude, in spite of enduring one of the most difficult things any human ever had to endure ...

You Put the Beat in The Beatles
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor

(I):
From that tiny little cellar
Down in Hayman’s Green
To that attic up in the Reeperbahn baby
I wish I'd seen what you've seen

Yeah there were Caverns
And there were taverns
You and your mates out playing shows
Oh how you gonna through it
... Nobody knows …

(Chorus):
You put the Beat in The Beatles
They put your feet on the street
You had watch the world roll by
From a ring-side-seat

And that had to be hard —
— er than anybody could have guessed
You Put the Beat in The Beatles
Cuz Baby you're the Best

(II):

You played your parts
You paid your dues
So when your rock and roll dreams
Reverted back to the blues

Oh that must'a been a nightmare
It must'a made you wanna cry
Why me, Oh Lord, Why me
They never told you why

(III):

But look atchya now
Look atchya shine
I don’t know how
But you turned out fine
Oh that had to be hard
Cuz who knows what you’ve been through
Nobody Knows …
Nobody but you!
