Weird Harrison Lyrics

Posted by **Beatles Fan Robert** on Aug 3, 2017 at 11:02:13 AM:

Not Guilty:

Not guilty
For looking like a freak,
making friends with every Sikh

Piggies (all right, the whole song is very strange and disturbing):

'And for all the little piggies
Life is getting worse
Always having dirt to play around in'

and

'Have you seen the bigger piggies
In their starched white shirts?
You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt'

and

'In their eyes there's something lacking
What they need's a damn good whacking'

and

'You can see them out for dinner
With their piggy wives
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon'

(also cited in previous post)

Think for Yourself:

'Although your mind's opaque
Try thinking more if just for your own sake'

Taxman:

'Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all'

and

'If you drive a car, I'll tax the street
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet'

and

'Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes'

(get the idea that George was trying to be sarcastic?)

Blue Jay Way (the whole damn song)

Savoy Truffle (not one of George's finer moments):

'You know that what you eat you are
But what is sweet now turns so sour'

(the entire songs makes my teethe ache)

Only a Northern Song:

'It doesn't really matter what clothes I wear
Or how I fare or if my hair is brown'

It's All Too Much (the entire song is weird and strange):

'It's all too much for me to take
The love that's shining all around here
All the world is birthday cake
So take a piece but not too much'

I Me Mine (perhaps the most bitter and sarcastic of all the Harrison penned songs):

'Now they're frightened of leaving it
Everyone's weaving it'

and

'Flowing more freely than wine
All through the day I me mine'

Not Guilty (boy did George ever have issues!)

'I'm not nodding for the rest, I'm not trying to steal you vest
I end up trying to be smart I only want what I can get'

and

'I'm really sorry for your aging head, but like you heard me said'

and

'Though you signing me a writ,
while I'm trying to do my bit'

and

'I don't expect to take your hoard
I only want what I can get'

and


'I'm really sorry that you're underfed,
but like you heard me said'

and

'For looking like a freak,
making friends with every Sikh'

and

'For leading you astray,
on the road to Masalay'
