The double-sided sheet of paper, containing lyrics for the Beatles song 'A Day in the Life', will go under the hammer at Sotheby's in New York on June 18, reports the BBC.
Not only will the winning bidder get the lyrics, but they will also be proud owner of amendments and notes too, showing the creative process of the song.
The page is covered with scribble in felt marker and blue ink, with other notes made in red.
'A Day in the Life' is the concluding track on the Beatles' seminal 1967 album 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' and was originally banned by the BBC due to a lyric supposedly referencing drugs.
Sotheby's called it "a revolutionary song that marked the Beatles' transformation from pop icons to artists."
Also according to the BBC, the most expensive Beatles lyrics to have been sold at auction so far were those for 'All You Need Is Love,' which went for $1m (£655,450) in 2005.
