Beatles Album: Abbey Road : Track 6
Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney
The lyrics of the Beatles song I want you (she's so heavy) are pretty simple. Being I want you, I want you so bad, it's driving me mad' repeated in many forms. The song was written by John Lennon and describes his love for Yoko. The i want you song was written to be as simple as possible yet describe everything about desire. Although a simple lyric the heavy guitar work by John works well to bring this song to a different dimension.
The song is really two separate songs I want you, and she's so heavy, with the latter being inserted into the former twice.
I want you (she's so heavy) is the longest true Beatles song at 7 minutes and 49 seconds long, though revolution Number 9 is longer, it is more a recording and mix than a true song.
