    Find out how the lyrics to This Boy by the Beatles came to be written.

    The lyrics to this boy, the B side of I want to hold your hand were written by John Lennon. The song itself was a demonstration of John beginning to experiment with music; he wanted to write an harmonic song in the style of Smokey Robinson and the Everly brothers.

    The lyrics to the Beatles this boy have a theme that would become familiar to the Beatles song written by John; that of being a loser in love. That said the This Boy lyrics are pretty throw away as John was much more interested in the three part harmonies of the song rather than the words.
