lucy in the sky with diamonds

I don't necessarily like this animation from Yellow Submarine. My own mental images are much more beautiful, but it is a wonderful song.

My mom used to play this when we were being difficult, not wanting to go to sleep at bedtime. We would ask her to play one more song. Sort of a lullaby, I guess.

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...
