The British Invasion

They crossed the ocean
Appeared on TV
The Ed Sullivan Show
Millions would see

A different look
This group had
Longer hair
Parents got mad

Teen-age girls
Loved them the most
To see them perform
Who wouldn't boast

The screaming was loud
Their singing unheard
When playing their songs
You knew every word

As time marched on
A modern look
Those fancy suits
Off they took

Their hair got longer
They sang better songs
Until Yoko Ono
They all got along

A shot in the dark
John Lennon was dead
No Beatles reunion
Tears were shed

The British invasion
The Beatles came
Quite a legend
They became
