Dear Prudence
Won't you come out to play?
Dear Prudence
Greet the brand new day
The sun is up, the sky is blue
It's beautiful, and so are you
Dear Prudence
Won't you come out to play?

Dear Prudence
Open up your eyes
Dear Prudence
See the sunny skies
The wind is low, the birds will sing
That you are part of everything
Dear Prudence
Won't you open up your eyes?

Look around, round
Look around, round, round
Look around

Dear Prudence
Let me see you smile
Dear Prudence
Like a little child
The clouds will be a daisy chain
So let me see you smile again
Dear Prudence
Won't you let me see you smile?

Dear Prudence
Won't you come out to play?
Dear Prudence
Greet the brand new day
The sun is up, the sky is blue
It's beautiful, and so are you
Dear Prudence
Won't you come out to play?

"Dear Prudence is me.

Written in India.
A song about Mia Farrow's sister, who seemed to go slightly barmy, meditating too long, and couldn't come out of the little hut that we were livin' in.
They selected me and George to try and bring her out because she would trust us.
If she'd been in the West, they would have put her away.
We got her out of the house.
She'd been locked in for three weeks and wouldn't come out, trying to reach God quicker than anybody else.
That was the competition in Maharishi's camp: who was going to get cosmic first.
What I didn't know was I was already cosmic."

— John Lennon, All We Are Saying

 


 
I'm slightly barmy too.
going from 8—>9
To me this is 9 - OUTSTANDING

A great song, as is this.
When I was young and simple and new to the canon, Dear Prudence was my favourite Beatles track. Now I'm 47 and I still think this is practically perfect in every way imaginable.

"The wind is low, the birds will sing, that you are part of everything."

Ha I'm not alone!

 
Statistically, you are.
Hard to believe it was this day in 1964 that the Beatles landed in New York for their maiden trip to this side of the pond.
~"Want you come out to play?"
Love Prudence....my aunt named her bird Prudence after this song{#Daisy}

Yesterday was plain awful.
You can say that again.
Yesterday was plain awful, but that's not now...that's then...

This is the Beatles at there very best, IMO. My wife and I visited the Maharishi's ashram in Rishikesh, India last year and were blown away by the experience, wandering around the deserted camp where so much incredible Beatle's music was hatched. Now I understand that the ashram has been taken over by the government and will be turned into some sort of Beatles amusement park with tours, gift shops, food stands and so on. Glad we went when we did!

 
I hope I ever get the chance to go there, sounds great
Yeah, Beatles White Album, one of the best ...
Play more of it, e.g. "Happiness is a warm gun". Dear Prudence is never played on german radio, I love it, really one of my favourites.
More, more, more ...
