Album: “Magical Mystery Tour"(1967)
The song is titled “Penny Lane," the name of the area in the suburbs of Liverpool where John Lennon lived as a child and where Paul McCartney also has fond memories. The song is a richly scenic depiction of the daily lives of the barbers, bankers, firemen, and nurses who live in and around Penny Lane.

Title: Penny Lane Artist: The Beatles Words & Music By: Lennon/ McCartney Penny Lane, there is a barber showing photographs Of every head he's had the pleasure to know And all the people that come and go Stop and say, "Hello" On the corner is a banker with a motorcar And little children laugh at him behind his back And the banker never wears a Mac in the pouring rain Very strange Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes Wet beneath the blue suburban skies I sit and meanwhile back in Penny Lane, there is a fireman with an hourglass And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen He likes to keep his fire engine clean It's a clean machine Penny Lane, is in my ears and in my eyes A four of fish and finger pies In summer, meanwhile back Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout A pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray And though she feels as if she's in a play She is anyway Penny Lane, the barber shaves another customer We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim And then, the fireman rushes in from the pouring rain Very strange Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes There beneath the blue suburban skies I sit and meanwhile back Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes There beneath the blue suburban skies Penny Lane [End]
