John Lennon’s handwritten lyrics to Beatles song A Day In The Life have sold for $1.2m (£810,000) at auction, well above the price expected.
The double-sided sheet of paper with notes written in felt marker and blue ink was sold at Sotheby’s in New York.
The lyric sheet also contains some corrections and other notes penned in red ink.
The song – co-written with Paul McCartney – is the final track on the band’s 1967 Sgt Pepper album.
