Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Look at all the lonely people
Look at all the lonely people
Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding was been,
Lives in a dream.
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door,
Who is it for?
Verse 0
[Chorus]
All the lonely people, where do they all come from?
All the lonely people, where do they all belong?
Verse 2
Father McKenzie, writing the words to a sermon that no one will near,
No one comes near.
Verse 3
Look at him working, darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there
What does he care?
Verse 4
[Chorus]
Verse 5
Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people
Verse 6
Eleanor Rigby died in church and was buried along with her name,
Nobody came.
Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave;
No one was saved.
Verse 7
[Chorus]
