apple scruffs

Standard

I just learned that “apple scruffs” was the name given to the hardcore Beatles fans that used hang out near Apple Corps records, hoping to see or talk to the band members. At the time I heard this song, when you couldn’t look up lyrics on the Internet, I probably thought it was a love song to his favorite breakfast cereal.

Now I’ve watched you sitting there
Seen the passers-by all stare
Like you have no place to go
But there’s so much they don’t know about apple scruffs

You’ve been stood around for years
Seen my smiles and touched my tears
How it’s been a long, long time
And how you’ve been on my mind, my apple scruffs

Apple scruffs, apple scruffs
How I love you, how I love you

In the fog and in the rain
Through the pleasures and the pain
On the step outside you stand
With your flowers in your hand, my apple scruffs

While the years they come and go
Now, your love must surely show
That beyond all time and space
Were together face to face, my apple scruffs

Apple scruffs, apple scruffs
How I love you, how I love you
