The Beatles – Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

A beautiful cartoon video of the well known Beatles song.


Rumor has it that the title hides the initials for LSD (Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds). People are inclined to think it’s subliminally intended because the famous band experienced with LSD just around the period this song was written.
Maybe it was deliberately or purely coincidental, but it is a wonderful clip to watch either way you put it.

Here are the song’s lyrics:

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
And she’s gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Aaaaahhhhh…

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmellow pies
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
That grow so incredibly high

Newpaper taxis appear on the shore
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds
And you’re gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Aaaaahhhhh…

Picture yourself on a train in a station
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstyle
The girl with the kaleidoscope eyes

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Aaaaahhhhh…
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Aaaaahhhhh…
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds (fade out)

  1. […] You all know about the band’s experiments with LSD which brought us wonderful songs like Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds […]

  2. Its well documented that McCartney was round at Lennons House when his young son Julian brought a painting to show him. John asked him what it was and the young Julian replied “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” to attribute it to drugs is wishful thinking (or tripping??)

  3. You do realize i know you are the same person who wrote all 4 comments above. So please tell us why is it that you are so angry on this particular song? Apparently you have something against drugs…a lot of people do but they still like the music it helps create. Also please know that lsd is not a street drug. And don’t forget a lot of music has certain names in it’s song lyrics and not everyone who shares that name also relate to the realted facts and actions or especially feelings ;)

  4. can anybody tell me why when u listen to this song high u get sooo freaked out i actually started crying

  5. Thanks for sharing this video.
