Paul McCartney & Wings - "Live And Let Die" - Live 1976




"Live and Let Die" is the theme song of the 1973 James Bond film Live and Let Die, performed by the British–American rock band Wings. Written by English musician Paul McCartney and his wife Linda McCartney, it reunited McCartney with former Beatles producer George Martin, who produced the song and arranged the orchestra.


McCartney was contacted to write the song by the film's producers Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli before the screenplay was finished. Wings recorded "Live and Let Die" during the sessions for Red Rose Speedway in October 1972 at AIR Studios. It was also the first rock song to open a Bond film. Another version by B. J. Arnau also appears in the film.




Lyrics


When you were young and your heart was an open book

You used to say live and let live

(You know you did, you know you did, you know you did)

But if this ever changing world in which we're living

Makes you give in and cry


Say live and let die

(Live and let die)

Live and let die

(Live and let die)


What does it matter to you?

When you got a job to do

You got to do it well

You got to give the other fellow hell


You used to say live and let live

(You know you did, you know you did, you know you did)

But if this ever changing world in which we're living

Makes you give in and cry


Say live and let die

(Live and let die)

Live and let die

(Live and let die)
