With a little help from my friends

I suppose this thinly-veiled song on the delights of drug-abuse is no longer as politically acceptable today in 1999 as it was in 1967 when the greater part of pop scene was involved thereby giving a quasi-respectability to habit. At that time I was totally ignorant of drugs and took the lyrics at their face value. I've always enjoyed playing the melody and its easy jog-along pace and the lyrics are easy to memorise. The version that I play can be found in Beatles Songs for the Recorder.
