These are John Lennon's handwritten lyrics for A Day In The Life, which was the final track on the Beatles album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

And they now belong to a private American collector who just bought the lyrics for $1.2 million at a New York City auction.

The lyrics, penned in a black felt marker and blue pen, start with the words "I READ THE NEWS TODAY OH BOY," which referred to a news story about Guinness heir Tara Browne who died in a car crash.

The song was banned by the BBC because of the line, "I'd love to turn you on," which supposedly referred to drug use.

Lennon admitted later that the last line was "nonsense."

Ha!

Still, very cool for Beatles fans!
