rehearsing the song let me roll it by paul mc cartney and wings
nobody's perfect !



You gave me something, I understand,
You gave me loving in the palm of my hand
I cant tell you how I feel
My heart is like a wheel
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you
Let me roll it
Let me toll it to you

I want to tell you
And nows the time
I want to tell you that
Youre going to be mine

I cant tell you how I feel
My heart is like a wheel.
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you

"Let Me Roll It" is the fifth track on the Paul McCartney & Wings album Band on the Run. Though never released as a single, it is considered by many to be one of the most memorable tracks on the album, often being a part of Paul McCartney's performance when he tours. This song is generally acknowledged to be an imitation of John Lennon's Plastic Ono Band music style, in response to and with a song structure very similar to "How Do You Sleep?", Lennon's song aimed at McCartney in retaliation for the songs on Ram, many of which he believed were aimed at him. The main guitar lick is also similar to Lennon's single Cold Turkey, with Lennon's lick starting on a more aggressive 2nd beat and McCartney's on the more passive 8th beat of a 4 triplet measure.

"Let Me Roll It" is however perceived as a peacemaking attempt, as it is a rather friendly parody/imitation and the lyrics does not contain any malicious attacks. The war in music and the press between Lennon and McCartney stopped after the song's release. This lends plausibility to the claims saying that Lennon actually liked this spoof on his own style.

The song's lyric, when taken literally, describes the narrarator's inability to properly articulate his feelings. He pledges instead to show how he feels, likening his heart to a wheel and asking his subject to, "let me roll it to you".
