A Spaniard in the Works is a book from 1965 by John Lennon. The book consists of nonsensical stories and drawings similar to the style of his previous book, 1964's In His Own Write. The name is a pun on the expression "a spanner in the works".

The Swedish publishing house Bakhåll published the book in 1997 in an English and Swedish edition, together with a CD containing tracks with never before released Lennon pieces and interviews.
