Does anyone know what Paul is singing in those opening lines to Too Many People? It's a falsetto before that actual lyrics begin. Sort of sounds like "Feels so sad" but I don't think that what he's saying, so I turn to you. Anyone?

Have I mis-heard, or does it really start with the words “Piss off”?

Yeah. Piss off, cake. Like, a piece of cake becomes piss off cake,
And it’s nothing, it’s so harmless really, just little digs. But the
first line is about “too many people preaching practices.” I felt John
and Yoko were telling everyone what to do. And I felt we didn’t need to
be told what to do. The whole tenor of the Beatles thing had been,
like, each to his own. Freedom. Suddenly it was “You should do this.”
It was just a bit the wagging finger, and I was pissed off with it. So
that one got to be a thing about them.

I posted this question about a year ago at the McCartney fan website, but nobody had a helpful answer.

 

I also have the Ram songbook -- published by McCartney, full of photos by Linda.  But while it has chords for most of the song "Too Many People" it stops short of the ending.

 

What I need are the chords after the last line:

 

"Now what can be done for you... she's waiting for me... yeah!"

 

Then it seems to switch to a whole new set of chords from everything previous, or even a key change, as it transitions into an electric guitar solo that prefigures the end of the song.

 

Does anyone know what chords are being used there?

 

Thanks

To my ears he's singing:  "It's all good now, ah oh, ah ah oh...."  Or he could be doing scat.
