    John Lennon's handwritten lyrics to The Beatles' 1967 song, the iconic "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," nabbed $237,000 at an LA auction. The lyrics were scribbled on a single sheet and also feature a doodle of four people in a room plus the opening words to "She's Leaving Home." Lyrical Lennon bonanza right there.
