Aerosmith - Come Together - About the song
Aerosmith collaborated with Beatles producer George Martin to record this song for the 1978 film Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, which turned out to be one of the worst films ever made. Aerosmith appeared in the film as the Future Villain Band, agreeing to play the role only because they couldn't pass up the opportunity to record a Beatles song with George Martin. They weren't the only big names in the movie; Peter Frampton and The Bee Gees also appeared.
When it was released as a single, Aerosmith's version of "Come Together" reached number 23 in the United States. "I've actually never heard anybody say that," their guitarist Brad Whitford said when we asked why some people prefer the Aerosmith version. "But you know, it's funny, I hear our version more on the radio than The Beatles' version," Whitford added.
Come Together - Lyrics
Here come old flat top He come groovin' up slowly He got joo joo eyeball He one holy roller He got hair down to his knee Got to be a joker he just do what he please He wear no shoeshine He got toe jam football He got monkey finger He shoot Coca Cola He say I know you, you know me One thing I can tell you is you got to be free Come together Right now Over me He bag production He got walrus gumboot He got Ono sideboard He one spinal cracker He got feet down below his knee Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease Come together Right now Over me He roller coaster He got early warning He got muddy water He one mojo filter He say one and one and one is three Got to be good lookin' 'cause he's so hard to see Come together Right now Over me Come Together Come Together Come Together Come Together Come Together
