Ok, this is slightly old news – it happened a couple of weeks ago – but we managed to find some really good images of the front and back of Lennon's lyrics for Mr. Kite:
Lennon's charmingly/clumsily-illustrated lyrics – complete with a typo in the title – were auctioned by Julien's in New York as part of a Rock'n'Roll memorabilia auction that also saw one of Elvis Presley's guitars sell for $334,000.
Perhaps it's the existence of these handwritten lyrics that meant that the song was always attributed to him and we had to wait for Paul McCartney to tell us otherwise a couple of years ago. I'm not sure he needed to write most of this down though – he could have just read the words right off the poster hanging on his wall!
