Lyrics below

What would you do if I sang out of tune?
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears, then I’ll sing you a song
I will try not to sing out of key, yeah

Oh, baby I get by
(By with a little help from my friends)
All I need is my buddies
(Try with a little help from my friends)
I said, I’m gonna get high
(High with a little help from my friends)
Oh, yeah

What do I do when my love is away?
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
No, no
How do I feel at the end of the day?
(Are you sad ’cause you’re on your own?)
I tell don’t get sad no more

Gonna get by with my friends
(Try high with a little help from my friends)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m gonna try
(Try with a little help from my friends)
Keep on gettin’ high, oh, Lord

I need someone to love
(Could it be anybody?)
All I need is someone
Knows just where I’m goin’, yeah
Somebody who knows just what I’ll show them, baby

Said, I’m gonna make it with my friends, yeah, yeah
(Try with a little help with my friends)
Oh, oh, I’m gonna keep on tryin’, yeah
(High with a little help from my friends)
I’m gonna keep on tryin’ now, babe

I’m certain it happens all the time, yeah
(What do you see when you turn off the light?)
I can’t tell you, but it sure feels like mine

Don’t you know I’m gonna make it with my friends?
(Try with a little help with my friends)
I promised myself I’ll get by
(High with a little help from my friends)
Said, I’m gonna try it with them too hard

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Could it be anybody?)
Oh, there’s gotta be somebody
Going to be right, I know it
Somebody carefree, now
Oh, yeah, yeah

Said, I’m gonna get by with my friends
(Try with a little help with my friends)
Oh, yes, I’m gonna keep tryin’, now
(High with a little help from my friends)
Keep on tryin’ with my friends
(By with a little help from my friends)

Oh, you’ll never gonna stop me anymore
(Try with a little help with my friends)
I’m gonna keep on tryin’, yeah
(High with a little help from my friends)
I’m gettin’ high, I wanna make time, Lord, no
Gonna get by with my friends, yeah
Oh, I’m gonna get on by
Yes, I’m gonna get on by
Wanna take ’em all along
I wanna take ’em all along with me, yeah, yeah
