Oh my. Glad John had Paul change the lyrics back then because if he didn't Paul wouldn't be able to sing that song live now because he's vegetarian. No lobster, tuna, liver, or bacon would be allowed in the shows now. ahdn_paul_02

@Tony Japanese 

Fabulous parodies! Would you say they're "tongue in cheek"?

As I was buttering my waffles this morning, this ran through my mind:

It's getting butter all the time
Butter, butter, butter
It's getting butter all the time
Butter, butter, butter
Getting so much butter all the time!

What was John's famous contribution to Paul's "Getting butter" ?

He contributed the iconic line:

TOAST TOAST TOAST

and this verse:

There's no bread you can bake that can't be baked

No butter you can spread that can't be spread

No knife you can't use if you can learn how to use safely

It's easy

Paul did the other verses and the chorus:

All you need is to get butter

Getting butter's all you need

Why yes that is a picture of Paul dabbing. Deal with it.

That is actually a book of orginal Beatles lyrics. As you know, many songs were written about food primarily before the group were convinced to change the subject to the more conventional 'boy loves girl' for maximum appeal. It would explain why John put on weight between 1963 and 1965.

The title track, She Came In Through The Kitchen Window was written when Paul was accosted by Mary Berry in late 1968. At the time Mary's baking career hadn't quite taken off and she was dabbling in petty crime to supplement her income.

This one was written by John about another affair he had. Again, he changed the lyrics in the final version because he didn't want Cynthia to find out:

 

Lucy In The Sky With Donuts

 

Picture yourself with a maid in the kitchen,

with copper-brown hair and marvellous thighs.

Somebody calls you, you feign not to hear her,

a nutcase who claims she’s your wife.

 

Battenberg batches of yellow and pink

scattered all over the floor.

Look for the woman who called out your name,

but she’s gone.

 

Lucy in the sky with donuts.

Ah, ah.

 

Follow her out to the food in the larder,

where she keeps the pastry, the milk and the drugs.

Alf Bicknell smiles as he waters the flowers,

but Lucy, she stands there and shrugs.

 

Milkmen, each morning, appear at the door

taking the empties away.

They’re selling the bottles at £5 for four

when there’s none.

 

Lucy in the sky with donuts.

Ah, ah

 

Picture yourself with a maid at the station,

Saying goodbye with a kiss to the jaw.

Suddenly you see her, a girl quite familiar:

your wife, with your mother-in-law.

 

Lucy in the sky with donuts.

Ah, ah

Which reminds me, I covered @Tony Japanese's 'The Salad of John and Yoko' but I have yet to post it. I'll do it when I get to my computer...

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

Ha! I remember you telling me you were planning to cover it. I feel like Bernie Taupin, Oscar Hammerstein II, Hal David etc.
