Beatles for Sale is the fourth studio album by the English rock band the Beatles, released on December 4, 1964. only eight of the tracks are original compositions, with cover versions of songs by artists such as Carl Perkins, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly and Little Richard being used to complete the album. When Beatles for Sale was being recorded, Beatlemania was at its peak and the fourth album release in the space of 21 months.

“Honey Don’t” is a song written by Carl Perkins, originally released on January 1, 1956 as the B-side of the “Blue Suede Shoes” single, Sun 234. Both songs became rockabilly classics. It has been covered by more than 20 other artists, including The Beatles, Ronnie Hawkins and Johnny Rivers. The song also appeared in the movies Prince of Tides, Diner, and Perfect Sisters.

I chose this song because Ringo is singing and he pulls George into the guitar flourishes.  The first video is The Beatles and the Carl Perkins version is after the lyrics.  This concludes my Beatlemania theme for awhile.  I hope you have enjoyed it.

Well, how come you say you will when you won’t?
Say you do, baby, when you don’t
Let me know, honey, how you fell
Tell the truth now, is love real?
So, ah, ah

Well, honey don’t
Well, honey don’t
Honey don’t
Honey don’t
Honey don’t
I say you will when you won’t
Ah, ah, honey don’t

Well, I love you, baby, and you oughtta know
I like the way that you wear your clothes
Everything about you is so doggone sweet
You got that sand all over your feet
Well, ah, ah

Well, honey don’t
Honey don’t
Honey don’t
Honey don’t
Honey don’t
I say you will when you won’t
Ah, ah, honey don’t

Ah, rock on, George, one time for me
I feel fine
I said

Well, sometimes I love you on a Saturday night
Sunday morning you don’t look right
You been out painting the town
Uh huh, baby been steppin’ around
Well, ah, ah

Well, honey don’t
I said, honey don’t
Honey don’t
Honey don’t
Honey don’t
I say you will when you won’t
Ah, ah, honey don’t

Ah, rock on, George, for Ringo one time

Well, honey don’t
Well, honey don’t
A little, little, honey don’t
I say, you will when you won’t
Ah, ah, honey don’t

Songwriters: Carl Lee Perkins

    They looked worn out on that cover.
    The world would be a better place if everyone would listen to a Ringo song every day.

      Yes, they do look worn out. I’m sure it affected the muse. You are right, Ringo’s voice has a soothing quality to it.

            He mellowed in his old age. I always liked that he was willing to change his mind about things.

                    He did. Although his father lived to 102, dying shortly before he did. But my father was a smoker, and died of lung cancer. Whenever I see young people smoking I want to ask them: don’t you know? They do, but they don’t…

                      Your grandpa was ahead of his time on mortality! Smoking kills and usually not in a pretty way. It killed my grandpa and my dad. My mom, who is 80+ still smokes. It doesn’t seem to have affected her breathing which is amazing. Her danger zone is her guts, which have given her a world of trouble. Her alcoholism (now in remission as she doesn’t drink) is what I blame for that.

    I remember these coming out in my childhood days, such a breath of fresh air. For me the covers were much more alive, their interpretations were fab.
