I Am The Walrus

Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney
Music: Lennon, McCartney

Introduced by Phil & Friends on New Year's Eve 2000 and subsequently in 2012.

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together
See how they run Iike pigs from a gun, see how they fly
I'm crying

Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come
Corporation teashirt, stupid bloody Tuesday
Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long

I am the eggman
They are the eggmen
I am the walrus
Goo goo g'joob

Mister city policeman sitting pretty little policemen in a row
See how they fly like Lucy in the sky, see how they run
I'm crying
I'm crying
I'm crying
I'm crying

Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye
Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess
Boy you been a naughty girl you let your knickers down


Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun
If the sun don't come, you get a tan from standing in the English rain


Expert textpert choking smokers, don't you think the joker laughs at you?
See how they smile like pigs in a sty, see how they snied
I'm crying

Semolina pilchards, climbing up the Eiffel Tower
Elementary penguin singing Hare Krishna
Man, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe
