    Find out how the lyrics to the beatles song What Goes On came to be written.

    What goes on was an early Beatles song and was actually put forward as a follow up single to the please please me single, but they decided not to record it.


    The lyrics of what goes on were written by John Lennon, it was decided that it would make an ideal song fro Ringo’s now traditional singing spot on the Beatles albums. Paul and Ringo re wrote the lyrics middle eight of what goes on, this therefore became Ringo Starr’s first writing contribution to a Beatles song.
