The lyric sheet for the Sgt. Pepper's classic, which may or may not be about LSD, will go to auction on May 14th in Beverly Hills, Billboard.biz reports. Estimated going price: $200,000, or a million less than what "A Day in the Life" sold for last year, which makes sense considering "A Day in the Life" is the Beatles' best song (no debate). The sheet features the opening lyrics of the song ("Picture yourself in a boat on a river..."), plus Lennon's drawing of "four people in a room with windows draped in curtains." We were expecting something a tad more psychedelic to be sketched on the "Lucy" lyric sheet, but that won't stop Beatles fanatics from bidding hardcore for this item.
