Glass Onion - Looking through the bent black tulips (it looks like the tulips are bent, but they're not black so my guess is probably wrong)

That is my song, @Skelter. The lyric actually says bent-backed tulips. Here's Joe's bit on the song: 

The bent backed tulips are believed to have been inspired by the table arrangement at Parkes, a then-fashionable restaurant on London's Beauchamp Place.

"You'd be in Parkes sitting around your table wondering what was going on with the flowers and then you'd realise that they were actually tulips with their petals bent all the way back, so that you could see the obverse side of the petals and also the stamen. This is what John meant about 'seeing how the other half lives'. He meant seeing how the other half of the flower lives but also, because it was an expensive restaurant, how the other half of society lived."
 
Derek Taylor 
A Hard Day's Write, Steve Turner

 

"Reflexing" tulip petals takes a bit time. I bet Parkes had to pay a pretty penny to the florists to bend all those petals. Unless someone on his staff reflexed them.

 

I tried to find a picture of Parkes Restaurant. This picture of Beauchamp Place in the 60s is all I could find. http://jot101.com/2017/07/park.....g-sixties/

Here's where Parkes Restaurant (well, Beauchamp Place) was in relation to Apple Records.

Reminds me of the Eleanor Rigby scene in Yellow Submarine ... is it Eleanor Rigby ?

Love one another.

No, it's not Eleanore Rigby. I think this one should be pretty obvious. I'm thinking about the very first line of a song.

Maybe the line I'm thinking of makes more sense if I also post the back cover.

Correct, @CouldntThinkOfABeatlesPun! Pretty obvious as I said. Your turn!
