Eight Days a Week

The movie "The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years" is one of the very best movies ever.



Song of Week: The Beatles, Eight Days A Week
From https://youtu.be/JELULTSzjWw



And then there's my version of the song. I had been quite sore, checked strava and discovered I only ran 8k the week before last. I had to write a song to celebrate that.

Eight k's a week
Oh, I need more running
Guess you know it's true
Hope you need to train, mate
Just like I need to

Chase me, race me, scold me, push me
I ain't got nothing left, mate
Eight k’s a week

Must run every day, girl
A streak is on my mind
One thing I can say, girl
I’d love a faster time

Chase me, race me, scold me, push me
I ain't got nothing left, girl
Eight k’s a week

Eight k’s a week
I have to
Eight k’s a week
Is not enough to get me there

Ooh I need to go, son
Get out every day
Can you meet me now, son
We need to jog today

Chase me, race me, scold me, push me
I ain't got nothing left, son
Eight k’s a week
Eight k’s a week
Eight k’s a week

  1. Great song writing. And it used to be 8 k's warm-up before training!
