The Beatles I Am The Walrus HD



I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly.
I’m crying.

Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come.
Corporation tee-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday.
Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob.

Mister City Policeman sitting
Pretty little policemen in a row.
See how they fly like Lucy in the Sky, see how they run.
I’m crying, I’m crying.
I’m crying, I’m crying.

Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog’s eye.
Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess,
Boy, you been a naughty girl you let your knickers down.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob.

Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun.
If the sun don’t come, you get a tan
From standing in the English rain.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob g’goo goo g’joob.

Expert textpert choking smokers,
Don’t you think the joker laughs at you?
See how they smile like pigs in a sty,
See how they snide.
I’m crying.

Semolina pilchard, climbing up the Eiffel Tower.
Elementary penguin singing Hari Krishna.
Man, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob g’goo goo g’joob.
Goo goo g’joob g’goo goo g’joob g’goo. The Beatles I Am The Walrus HD

  1. I thought the story behind this song was that a college kid wrote to John telling him that one of his teachers was always making the class find the meanings behind Beatles songs and John wrote this basically to say "figure this shit out then" nothing to do with an acid trip.

  2. so the eggman was the man who stored the eggs which had the unique and patented image of each clown painted on them. i got that from the avengers. so did john probably, if he remembers rightly.

  3. Este tema fue dedicado a Paul Mc Cartney (Q.E.P.D:)pues el verdadero Paul fallecio el dia 9 de Noviembre de 1969, en un accidente de carretera, lo acompa帽aba una mujer rubia que quedo con contusiones despues del accidente. Paul no tenia nada en su cabeza, sus ojos sobresalian de sus cuencas, sus dientes se despedazaron todos, solo quedaron dos en total. Por esa razon, Jhon Lennon, dijo en una entrevista a la BBC de Londres, que al ver el cuerpo fallecido de Paul, se estremecio y dijo que parecia "una foca" (WALRIUS), y por tal motivo, le dedico este tema. El "suplente" de Mc Cartney se llama William…y fue intervenido quirurgicamente para ser igual en el rostro a Paul. Sepan la realidad de Los Beatles…y falta mucho mas que decir…

  4. Not that I don't like "Hello Goodbye" but honestly, the fact that Lennon allowed that to be the A-side and "I am the walrus" as the B-side is ridiculous, It's a good song but this song should have been the A-side.

  5. The intro was inspired by the sound of a police siren in the Weybridge area.
    'The eggman' could be a reference to Eric Burdon (The Animals). Apparently breaking eggs on bodies was part of his sexual antics, or something.

  6. Speed + pot+ alcohol+ frantic imaginations = this song. Amazing I didn't write it as I had the same combination back then. Oh, well, I enjoy the song — AND the vague memories of that era.

  7. The Krishnas rave on how Hare Krishna is mentioned in this song but actually he is putting shit on them –

    PLAYBOY: "I am the Walrus."

    LENNON: The first line was written on one acid trip one weekend. The second line was written on the next acid trip the next weekend, and it was filled in after I met Yoko. Part of it was putting down Hare Krishna. All these people were going on about Hare Krishna, Allen Ginsberg in particular. The reference to "Element'ry penguin" is the elementary, naive attitude of going around chanting, "Hare Krishna," or putting all your faith in any one idol. I was writing obscurely, a la Dylan, in those days.
