10i: Paul Rudd / Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney performs “A Day in the Life” / “Give Peace a Chance”

…..Paul Rudd
…..Paul McCartney

Paul Rudd: Once again — Paul McCartney.

Paul McCartney: [ singing ] “I read the news today, oh boy
About a lucky man who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well, I just had to laugh.
I saw the photograph.

He blew his mind out in a car
He didn’t notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They’d seen his face before
Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords.

I saw a film today, oh boy
The English Army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away
But I just had to look
Having read the book.

I’d love to tuuuuuuuuurn… yoooooooouuuu… ooooooooooon.

[ alarm clock rings ]

Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up I noticed I was late.

Grabbed my coat, found my hat
Found the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!

All we are saying is give peace a chance.
Oh yeah!
All we are saying is give peace a chance.
Everybody’s talking about!
All we are saying is give peace a chance.
Give me the chance, give me the chance.
All we are saying is give peace a chance.”

Okay, now YOU sing it!

Audience: “All we are saying is give peace a chance!”

Paul McCartney: Everybody sing it!

Audience: “All we are saying is give peace a chance!”

Paul McCartney: [ singing ] “Give peace a chance!
Now come on, all over the world!

All we are saying is give peace a chance
Yes!
All we — all we are saying is give peace a chance
Give peace a chance, give peace a chance!
All we are saying is give peace a chance!”

[ thunderous applause ]
