I never noticed before how many animal songs the Beatles had. It's like a musical menagerie! Here's one more:  Rocky Raccoon

Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey

 

Some people say this song is about drugs, but this is what John Lennon himself said, "That was just a sort of nice line that I made into a song. It was about me and Yoko. Everybody seemed to be paranoid except for us two, who were in the glow of love. Everything is clear and open when you're in love. Everybody was sort of tense around us: you know, 'What is she doing here at the session? Why is she with him?' All this sort of madness is going on around us because we just happened to want to be together all the time." 

 


It's so interesting to find the true meaning behind song lyrics. Sometimes the lyrics will mean different things to different people, but the writer often had something else in mind!

Wait, another Beatle's song "Blackbird"...

 

The story behind "Blackbird" is interesting to me, especially now..
