A coffee-stained piece of paper containing Paul McCartney's hand- written lyrics for the classic Beatles track "With A Little Help From My Friends" is set to fetch up to pounds 80,000 at an auction next month.

The piece of musical history has emerged from a private collection nearly 30 years after McCartney first wrote it for the 1967 album, Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. "What would you do if I sang out of tune," wrote McCartney, adding "Would you throw a tomato at me?" He later substituted the line: "Would you stand up and walk out on me?"
