    Beatles Album: Abbey Road : Track 9

    Year: 1969

    Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney

    Length: 3.57

    The Beatles You never give me your money is the second song on the abbey road album that was motivated by all the business meeting that the Beatles were being dragged through at the time; the first being here comes the sun.

    You never give me your money makes up the first part of the medley of songs on abbey road that Paul McCartney put together from partially completed songs and ideas. The never give me your money song is inspired from a conversation with George when he was telling of all the paperwork that he was receiving instead of the money that he was owed; it finishes off with Paul's escape from the business meetings when he could just drive off in his car with his beloved Linda.

    In all you never give me your money can be broke up into four main ideas, the two mentioned above plus a Little Richard inspired 'magic feeling' section and the all good children go to heaven ditty.
