You Put the Beat in The Beatles

from TOP​-​20 by Dallas Doctor



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

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 …

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


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


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!
