Day Tripper

Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney
Music: Lennon, McCartney

Played by the Grateful Dead a few times in 1984-85 and then dropped.

Got a good reason for taking the easy way out
Got a good reason for taking the easy way out now
She was a day tripper, one way ticket yeah
It took me so long to find out, and I found out

She's a big teaser, she took me half the way there (note 1)
She's a big teaser, she took me half the way there now
She was a day tripper, Sunday driver yeah
It took me so long to find out, and I found out

Tried to please her, she only plays one night stands
Tried to please her, she only plays one night stands now
She was a day tripper, Sunday driver yeah
It took me so long to find out, and I found out

Day tripper, day tripper yeah
Day tripper, day tripper yeah
Day tripper, day tripper yeah
Day tripper, day tripper yeah
Day tripper, day tripper yeah
Notes
(1) Weir (and the others) sing "She was a prick teaser ...", which was apparently how Lennon/McCartney originally wrote it, before they were persuaded to amend it.
