Hey Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

Hey Jude, don't be afraid
You were made to go out and get her
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it better

And anytime you feel the pain,
Hey Jude, refrain
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it's a fool
Who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder

Na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na


Hey Jude, don't let me down
You have found her, now go and get her
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

So let it out and let it in,
Hey Jude, begin
You're waiting for someone to perform with
And don't you know that it's just you?
Hey Jude, you'll do
The movement you need
Is on your shoulder

Na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na. Yeah.


Hey Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her under your skin,
Then you'll begin to make it
Better, better, better
Better, better, better
Ohhhhhhh, Yeah.

Na na na, na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na,
Hey Jude...
Na na na, na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na,
Hey Jude...

Oye, Jude, no lo estropees
Toma una canción triste y mejórala
Recuerda hacerle un sitio en tu corazón
Entonces puedes comenzar a mejorarla

Oye, Jude, no tengas miedo
Naciste para salir y hacerla tuya
En cuanto la metes bajo tu piel
Entonces comienzas a mejorarla

Y cada vez que te sientas angustiado
Oye, Jude, detente
No cargues con el mundo a tus espaldas
Pues bien sabes que es un tonto
Quien no se deja emocionar
Y hace que su mundo sea un poco más frío


Na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na


Oye, Jude, no me falles
Ahora que la has encontrado, ve y hazla tuya
Recuerda hacerle un sitio en tu corazón
Entonces puedes comenzar a mejorarla

Así pues, libérala y déjala entrar
Oye, Jude, empieza ya
Estás buscando a alguien con quien tocar
¿Y no sabes que eres precisamente tú?
Oye, Jude, lo harás
El movimiento que necesitas
Está en tus hombros

Na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na. Yeah.


Oye, Jude, no lo estropees
Toma una canción triste y mejórala
Recuerda meterla bajo tu piel
Entonces comenzarás a
Mejorarla, mejorarla, mejorarla
Mejorarla, mejorarla, mejorarla
Ohhhhhhh, Sí


Na na na, na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na,
Oye, Jude...
Na na na, na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na,
Oye, Jude...
