I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping... to something not about housework.

I look at the floor and I see a coin worth keeping

I look at the door and I notice it's creaking

I look at Yoko Ono and I hear she is shrieking (singing)

I watch politics and I see the public speaking

I don't have any lyrics in mind to replace it with, but the "Make love all day long, make love singing songs" in Love You To seems difficult and impractical, not to mention exhausting. a-hard-days-night-george-10

"She Came In Through The Bathroom Window/Protected by a silver spoon/But now she sucks her thumb and wonders/By the banks of her own lagoon"

Seriously, those lines have "Ah, they'll do" written all over them. I know Beatles songs are so familiar nowadays that it can be hard to take a step back, but McCartney really was in first-draft mode.

She Came In Through The Bathroom Window,
Then slipped and fell into the loo.
And so she’s stuck inside my toilet,
Need to go – where am I to poo?

I remember hearing these same lyrics for the first time, and actually thinking to myself: "This is inferior songwriting." Up until this point, I had never really questioned the quality of anything the Beatles released. I liked some songs more than others, but even if it wasn't my cup of tea, I accepted that they were on a higher level than everyone else. But the "Bathroom Window" lyrics burst that bubble. The music was sublime; But lines like "She worked at fifteen clubs a day"… just sounded clunky to my ears. If you're gonna write impressionistic lyrics, you've got to put some effort into it, or it just sounds juvenile. And the Beatles had never sounded like that to me until this song.

I would like to change this line in "Run For Your Life:" "Well, I'd rather see you dead, little girl, than to see you with another man"… Hmm… something not so mysogenistically violent… Maybe change it to "Well, I'd rather eat stale bread, little girl"… Uh… OK, maybe that needs a little more massaging…

But he really prefers to see her dead… It’s a very strong image, and it works perfectly with the song and with John’s voice. By the way: it is not one of my favorite songs.

Its too damn good not to get a re-post so here it is (from here)

OK, I think I found a way to make everyone happy. This is by no means my favorite song (not even in the top 10) but I do like the music a lot. For those of you who like the music but don't like the lyrics, I've cheered them up somewhat. Ah one, ah two, ah one two three four!

Well I'd rather see (RAINBOWS!), little girl
Than to be with another man
You better keep your head, little girl
Or you won't know (FUZZY SOCKS!)
You better (BUTTERFLIES!) if you can, little girl
(UNICORNS!) in the sand little girl
Catch you with another man
That's the (KITTENS!) little girl
Well you know that I'm a (PUPPIES!) guy
And I was born with a (DAISIES!) mind
And I can't spend my whole life
Trying just to make you (BUBBLE BATH!)

You better (WALK ON THE BEACH!) if you can, little girl
(CHOCOLATE!) in the sand little girl
Catch you with another man
That's the (PONIES!) little girl
Let this be a sermon
I mean everything I've said
Baby, I'm determined
And I'd rather see you (IN A LOVING LONG TERM RELATIONSHIP!)
You better run for your (LAMBS!) if you can, little girl
(BABY CHICKS!) in the sand little girl
Catch you with another man
That's the (BUNNIES!) little girl
I'd rather see (PIGLETS!), little girl
Than to be with another man
You better keep your head, little girl
Or you won't know (SMILEY FACE!)
You better (ICE CREAM CONE!) if you can, little girl
(PANDA BEAR!) in the sand little girl
Catch you with another man
That's the (WARM TOAST!) little girl

Na, na, na
Na, na, na
Na, na, na
Na, na, na

That made me laugh, and maybe made me sing along.

Why do you even bother in reading? There's nothing strange going on around here... Or is it?
