"They shook up the whole world, with great music,
and their Liverpool good looks,
completely rewriting, the musical history books.
The four bubbly, young scousers with a sound so utterly unique,
also taught the rest of mankind, the correct way,..the Scouse way, to speak.
From the moment that I first saw them, on tv, singing...Love me do,
It was so obvious they were something special, i knew, yes we all knew,
Very soon "Beatlemania," was an epidemic, that the whole world would eventually get, and the noise of the infected girls screaming, reached the same decibels as a Jumbo jet!
Us young lads all grew "Moptops," to look just like the Fab Four,
we all happily caught "Beatlemania," ...and nobody wanted a cure.
For almost ten glorious years, there was no known antidote, 
we all loved the Beatlemania, and the amazing songs that the lads wrote.
I'm now Sixty eight years young, and Beatle music is still ever so rife,
for the last fifty six long years....Beatlemania has happily enriched my life!"

I was never a big fan of the Beatles, but growing up in that era the connection is there, our carefree days of youth, before reality set in... a very well constructed poem Frank.
