Original of Something by The Beatles

Something by The Beatles

There’s something in your filthy lives That causes God’s fierce wrath to kindle You’ve coveted your neighbor’s wives

God will destroy you now You do not believe, and how

You paved the way for filthy fags With massive divorce and remarriage Lying fake “Christians” make us gag

God will destroy you now You will not believe, and how

Now every day our signs do showSo you should know, you should know We told you that God’s wrath would grow So you should know, you should know

You treacherously played the whore And taught adultery to your children God will shortly close the door

He will destroy you now You cannot believe, and how

Something in the way she moves Attracts me like no other lover. Something in the way she woos me I don’t want to leave her now

You know I believe and how

Somewhere in her smile she knows That I don’t no other lover Something in her style that shows me I don’t want to leaver her now

You know I believe and how

You’re asking me will my love grow. I don’t know, I don’t know. You stick around now, it may show, I don’t know, I don/t know

Something in the way she knows And all I have to do is think of her. Something in the things she shows me I don’t want to leave her now

You know I believe and how
