Handwritten Lyrics for A Day in the Life Auctioned

On a Loop in Hell Some handwritten lyrics of the Beatles‘ “A Day in the Life” will hit the auction block in June, the BBC reports. Written by John Lennon in a couple types of ink (because one pen apparently ran out) and with corrections and notes throughout, the double-side sheet is expected to fetch around $700,000, just behind the current record holder for handwritten Beatles lyrics.

“According to [Sotheby’s], the current record for the sale of Beatles lyrics is All You Need Is Love, which fetched $1m (£655,450) in 2005.”

The lyrics go up for sale on June 18, in case anyone is looking for a birthday present for Paul McCartney.
