New John Lennon song on anvil?

Thesun.co.uk reports that the lyrics of the song 'Tell Her Now' were penned by the murdered Beatle in the 1960s, but no music was composed to go with them. Now it has been revealed his son Julian is working on a project to tune the lyrics for the song and to publish it.

The lyrics are part of a private collection that Julian acquired after his father was killed Dec 8, 1980. 

"I don't believe the lyrics have been used anywhere. If the time was right, if it felt right, then I would consider looking at the lyrics and maybe trying to work with them and write something. But obviously only in honour of Dad. I guess in some respect it would be like coming home," Julian said.

It is not known exactly when John penned the lyrics. But if they date from 1966, the girl he speaks of could be Yoko Ono as John met her for the first time in November that year.

The lyrics are on display at the Beatles Story in Liverpool as part of a new exhibition - White Feather: The Spirit of Lennon.
