Paul McCartney - Junk

Artist: Paul McCartney & Wings

Song: Junk

Album: McCartney (1970), Wingspan: Hits and History (2001)


"Junk" is a song written by Paul McCartney in 1968 while The Beatles were in India. It was originally under consideration for The White Album. It was passed over for that LP, as it was for Abbey Road. It was eventually released on McCartney's first solo album, McCartney, in 1970. Another version of the song without lyrics, called "Singalong Junk" is also on the album. The version that McCartney played for the rest of The Beatles before the recording of The White Album is included on Anthology 3. The song's working title was "Jubilee".

In 2000, "Junk" was featured in Hanging Up, an American film.

Wingspan: Hits and History  is a greatest hits compilation album by Paul McCartney featuring material spanning his first solo album McCartney in 1970 to the 1984 Give My Regards To Broad Street movie soundtrack. This set is officially credited to Paul McCartney, although the bulk of the music included was performed by McCartney's former band Wings.



Beatles version!


motor cars, handle bars,
bicycles for two.
broken hearted jubilee.

parachutes, army boots,
sleeping bags for two.
sentimental jamboree.

buy! buy!
says the sign in the shop window.
why? why?
says the junk in the yard.

da da ya da da da,
da da da,
da da ya da da,
da da da da da da da.

candlesticks, building bricks,
something old and new.
memories for you and me.

buy! buy!
says the sign in the shop window.
why? why?
says the junk in the yard.
