If you're not familiar with the tune to "Act Naturally," go here and listen to the Beatles' version first.

They're gonna put me on Philippe Chatrier

They're gonna make a big star outta me

They'll tell a tale about man who all four majors

And all I have to do is Play Naturally

 

Well I bet you I'm gonna be a big star

Might make an SI cover, you can never tell

The victory's gonna make me a big star

'Cause Rafa didn't play so well

 

Well I hope you'll come and see me on Philippe Chatrier

Then I know that you will plainly see

The swellest guy to lift the Coupe des Mousquetaires

And all I have to do is Play Naturally

 

They'll tell the tale about a man who won the fourth major

After the draw opened wide up for me

Murray's gone, the others have bad records against me

So all I have to do is Play Naturally

 

Well I bet you I'm gonna be a big star

Might make an SI cover, you can never tell

The victory's gonna make me a big star

'Cause Djoker didn't play so well

 

Well I hope you'll come and see me on Philippe Chatrier

Then I know that you will plainly see

The swellest guy to lift the Coupe des Mousquetaires

And all I have to do is Play Naturally
