    Beatles Album: A Hard Day’s Night: Track 6

    Year: 1963

    Lyrics: Lennon and McCartney

    Length: 2.04


    Tell me why is a typical John Lennon song. The lyrics to the tell me why song tell the story of being lied to, abandoned and crying. The song is very upbeat and like many of the Beatles earlier recordings was influenced by the style of the Shirelles. In the song john begs of the girl to let him know the mistake that he has made so that he can correct it and be loved by the girl again.

    The vocals on tell me why were done as three part harmonies, John being double tracked and Paul single tracked.
