Beatles Album: Help: Track 6
Lyrics: Lennon and McCartney
For the most part the lyrics to the Beatles you’re going to lose that girl are done by John Lennon. The song can be seen as a progression on the theme of she loves you, in that John is going to move on the girl if you don’t start treating her with the respect that she deserves.
