I know it’s true, it’s all because of you
And if I make it through, it’s all because of you
And now and then, if we must start again
Well we were not sure, that I love you

[chours]

I don’t want to lose you – oh no, no, no
Lose you or abuse you – oh no, no, no, sweet doll
But if you have to go, away
If you have to go [next line Lennon sings the notes as he was most likely to finish the song later]

Now and then, I miss you
Oh now and then, I -[the low quality of the tape makes it hard to hear what he’s singing but it’s most likely that he is mumbling the vocal melody to fill in the gap in the verse]
I know [gap] turn to me

[verse]

I know it’s true, it’s all because of you
And if you go away, I know you [another unintelligible lyric]

[chours]

I don’t want to lose you – oh no, no, no
Abuse you or confuse you – oh no, no, no, sweet darl’
But if you had to go, away
Well I won’t stop you babe
And if you had to go
Well [another unintelligible lyric]

Nobody loves you when you’re down and out
Nobody sees you when you’re on cloud nine
Everybody’s hustlin’ for a buck and a dime
I’ll scratch your back and you scratch mine

I’ve been across to the other side
I’ve shown you everything, I got nothing to hide
And still you ask me do I love you, what it is, what it is
All I can tell you is it’s all show biz
All I can tell you is it’s all show biz

Nobody loves you when you’re down and out
Nobody knows you when you’re on cloud nine
Everybody’s hustlin’ for a buck and a dime
I’ll scratch your back and you knife mine

I’ve been across the water now so many times
I’ve seen the one eyed witchdoctor leading the blind
And still you ask me do I love you, what you say, what you say
Everytime I put my finger on it, it slips away
Everytime I put my finger on it, it slips away

Well I get up in the morning and I’m looking in the mirror to see, ooo wee!
Then I’m lying in the darkness and I know I can’t get to sleep, ooo wee!

Nobody loves you when you’re old and grey
Nobody needs you when you’re upside down
Everybody’s hollerin’ ‘bout their own birthday
Everybody loves you when you’re six foot in the ground
