    First, we all stole from someone...that is how we got where we are. When that song was recorded,those words were relatively obscure and a different tune was crafted around them by Lennon...no foul! It was a whole different vibe (however incorrect by BS PC standards) and I liked it. I listen to the music before the lyrics BTW!:rolleyes:

    Elvis had a big hit with that song (properly credited to Gunter), so I'm pretty sure everyone on earth was familiar with those lyrics.

    Elvis was an idol to the boys and that is likely where Lennon got the lines but it was taken to a new level by his tune.

    This song just drips with despair

    The Replacements - Little Mascara


    You and I fall together
    You and I sleep alone
    After all, things might be better
    After one, and there's one that's long gone

    For the moon you keep shootin'
    Throw your rope up in the air
    For the kids you stay together
    You nap 'em and you slap 'em in a highchair

    All you ever wanted was someone to take care of ya
    All you're ever losin' is a little mascara

    Afternoon, things are quiet
    Settle back now if you can
    Stations clip by like a rocket
    Don't you worry if you wonder why he ran

    All you ever wanted was someone daddy's scared of
    All you're ever losin' is a little mascara

    A little mascara
    A little mascara
    That you cry, cry
    That you cry,
    Your eyes out
    That you…

    Of course Skip James does a double break up song. He steals his best friend's woman, then his friend steals her back.

    Skip James - Devil Got My Woman



    Well, I'd rather be that devil
    Than be that woman's man
    Yes, I'd rather be that devil
    Than be that woman's man
    Oh nothin' but the devil
    Changed my baby's mind
    It was nothin' but the devil
    Changed my baby's mind

    Well, I laid down last night
    Get my natural rest
    Yes, I laid down last night
    To get my natural rest
    Well my mind got to rambling
    Like a wild geese in the west

    The woman that I love
    Took her from my best friend
    Yes, the woman that I love
    Took her from my best friend
    Don't you know he got lucky
    Stole her back, again
    Don't you know he got lucky
    Stole her back, again
