Is this THE worst Beatles song ever? “Dehra Dehra Dun, Dehra Dun Dun…”

Is this THE worst Beatles song ever? “Dehra Dehra Dun, Dehra Dun Dun…”

Disclaimers.

1) I am a diehard Beatles fan.

Half of my running playlist is their music.  Was singing aloud to “Hey Jude” at Moti Bagh just this morning, as it so happens.

2) Hubby went to school in Dehra Dun, and has a super soft spot for it.

But, however hard one tries to like this George Harrison song…

I have the Doon School Class of 71 Google group to thank for this awful ditty, which is now firmly stuck in my head.

And now yours, most probably 😛

I know that deep down, you want the lyrics, don’t you, so here they are:

“Dehra Dehra Dun, Dehra Dun Dun/ Dehra Dehra Dun/Dehra Dun Dun/ Many Roads can take you there /Many different ways/one direction takes you weeks/ another takes you days/ many people on the roads /looking at the sights/ Many others with their troubles/looking for their rights/see them move along the roads/in search of a life divine/beggars in a gold mine …Dehra Dehra Dun /Dehra Dun Dun”

To be honest, the lyrics aren’t that bad – it’s that wretched chorus, “Dehra Dehra Dun Dehra Dun Dun Dehra Dehra Dun Dehra Dun Dun”

You’re welcome.
