You deserve to be there for suggesting ‘SLU’, you’re fortunate not be ejected from the club and thrown out into the rain.

@Ahhh Girl 

Ahhh Girl has brought up a very interesting point I'd never thought of:

How would a person McCartney (on anyone else) is describing in a song feel about that song?

I like the way an incredibly successful / famous person like Sir Paul takes the time over and over again to write about far less fortunate people; but how do these people feel about written and sung about?

Does he/she think "Wow, he's writing a great song about me - that's so cool"? or "What makes him think he really gets me?" or "Great, he's making a buck off my plight" ...

I absolutely love "Footprints"; but how would an old man having to pick up wood in a snowy forest feel about "Footprints"?
