“Yellow Submarine ” 

  • Originally written and recorded by The Beatles in 1966

  • The drummer Ringo Starr sang the main vocals on 'YellowSubmarine'.

  • John Lennon was famously asked if Ringo was the Best drummer in the world. He jokingly replied "He's not even the best drummer in the Beatles!"

Now!

  • The verse is a little challenging at the moment for us to play (at the moment!) But we can all have lots of fun with the chorus!

  • So get your F and C7 chords ready and join in with singing along with the verses anyway!

Verse 1

C (Bb) F

In the town where I was born

(Dm)      Gm            (Bb)         C
Lived a man who sailed to sea
(F)         C           (Bb)    F
And he told us of his life
(Dm)      Gm            (Bb)         C
In the land of submarines

(F)         C           (Bb)    F
So we sailed up to the sun
(Dm)      Gm            (Bb)         C
Till we found the sea of green
(F)         C           (Bb)    F
And we lived beneath the waves
(Dm)      Gm            (Bb)         C
In our Yellow Submarine
CHORUS

F                        C7
We all live in a Yellow Submarine,
C7                               F
Yellow Submarine, Yellow Submarine
F                        C7
We all live in a Yellow Submarine,
C7                               F
Yellow Submarine, Yellow Submarine

Verse 2

(F)         C           (Bb)    F
And our friends are all on board
(Dm)      Gm            (Bb)         C
Many more of them live next door
(F)         C           (Bb)    F
And the band begins to play...


CHORUS


F                        C7
We all live in a Yellow Submarine,
C7                               F
Yellow Submarine, Yellow Submarine
F                        C7
We all live in a Yellow Submarine,
C7                               F
Yellow Submarine, Yellow Submarine

Verse 3

(F)         C           (Bb)    F
As we live a life of ease
(Dm)      Gm            (Bb)         C
Everyone of us has all we need
(F)         C                                    (Bb)      F
Sky of blue
(sky of blue) and sea of green (sea of green)
(Dm)      Gm                              (Bb)     C
In our Yellow (In our Yellow) Submarine (
Submarine Ha-hah!)

CHORUS


F                        C7
We all live in a Yellow Submarine,
C7                               F
Yellow Submarine, Yellow Submarine
F                        C7
We all live in a Yellow Submarine,
C7                               F
Yellow Submarine, Yellow Submarine




(If you would like to have a go at the verse chords...here they are)


My friends in Year 2 (seven year olds!) at Oakham Primary School did a superb recording of this song and had lots of fun doing it!

Listen out for the 'Brass Band'...and when they ALL dive into the 'Submarine!'
