I have been trying to play this number. The sheet music claims it is 7/4 (4/4 + 3/4) for the verse
and 4/4 for the chorus but I suggest the verse is far more complicated than that... maybe mainly
14/8 (4/8 + 6/8 + 4/8), with (3/8 + 4/8 + 3/8 + 4/8) at the turnaround.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this, and is the chorus really 4/4?
