  • "You Never Give Me Your Money" opens the climactic medley on side two of the 'Abbey Road' album. It was mainly written by Paul McCartney (though attributed to Lennon-McCartney). The song begins with two verses sung by McCartney in a large-sound, almost classical style. This is followed by a section played in a double time swing feel with McCartney switching to a more nasal vocal style, using a baritone voice which contrasts the song's somewhat poignant lyrics. Next comes an instrumental interlude with George Harrison's aggressive blues rock-style and a concluding unisono line between guitar and bass. The song fades out with a chant reminiscent of a nursery rhyme, set to a Harrison guitar riff similar to a previous album track, "Here Comes the Sun" (in turn based on a previous Harrison/Eric Clapton composition, "Badge"). The riff will return later in the medley's track "Carry That Weight". The song's production is notable for prominent use of leslie-amplified, arpeggiated guitar parts, which would become synonymous with the late-era Beatles sound. It segues into "Sun King".

  • Song Lyrics:
    You never give me your money
    You only give me your funny paper
    and in the middle of negotiations
    you break down

    I never give you my number
    I only give you my situation
    and in the middle of investigation
    I break down

    Out of college, money spent
    See no future, pay no rent
    All the money's gone, nowhere to go
    Any jobber got the sack
    Monday morning, turning back
    Yellow lorry slow, nowhere to go
    But oh, that magic feeling, nowhere to go
    Oh, that magic feeling
    Nowhere to go
    Nowhere to go

    One sweet dream
    Pick up the bags and get in the limousine
    Soon we'll be away from here
    Step on the gas and wipe that tear away
    One sweet dream came true today
    Came true today
    Came true today (yes it did)

    One two three four five six seven,
    All good children go to Heaven
    One two three four five six seven,
    All good children go to Heaven...
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
