“He’s unleashed the ugly side of America. People feel like they have got a free pass to be, if not violent, at least antagonistic towards people of a different colour or a different race. I think we all thought we’d got past that a long time ago.” as told to an NME interviewer about Donald Trump

Original Lyrics:

Story about this misheard lyric by: Cody Finke

I always thought the song was "Baby I'm Amazed" and why we commonly mishear "maybe" as "baby" and vice versa. In this case, it sounded like somebody pooped all the time!

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Live And Let Die"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
If this ever changing world in which we live in
Why They're Repetitive:
Not only is the second 'in' redundant, the whole phrase 'in which we live' is unnecessary. Obviously, we live in this world. 'If this ever changing world...makes you give in and cry...' would be the grammatically economic way of expressing his thought. Using some half-notes and whole notes with the shorter phrase could have accomplished this. But then again, Paul can't read music, can he?

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Admiral Halsey notified me
He had to have a berth or he couldn't get to sea
I had another look, and I had a cup of tea and a butter pie (Butter pie?)
(The butter wouldn't melt so I put it in the pie, alright?)
Hands across the water (Water)
Heads across the sky
Hands across the water (Water)
Heads across the sky
Live a little, be a gypsy, get around (Get around)
Get your feet up off the ground
Live a little, get around
Live a little, be a gypsy, get around (Get around)
Get your feet up off the ground
Live a little, get around
Hands across the water (Water)
Heads across the sky
Hands across the water (Water)
Heads across the sky
Why They're Nonsensical:
Paul McCartney gets a pass for nonsensical lyrics because he's well, Paul McCartney. But what does "hands across the water" have to do with a little gypsy get around? I think he just mashed together some rhyming words that fit the melody and couldn't care less about their meaning. This song doesn't tell a story in any sense of what a story is. I'd feel foolish if I went to a show and everyone was singing along to this nonsense!
Submitted by: ConstantReader
"Wonderful Christmastime"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The word is out, about the town
So lift your glass, and don't look down
Why They're Nonsensical:
This song is about having fun at a Christmas party. So why is he telling us not to look down? Are we up on the roof, perhaps?
Submitted by: Richard

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"The Other Me"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I know I was a crazy fool,
for treating you the way I did.
But something got a hold of me
and I acted like a dustbin lid.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Come on, Paul! You wrote 'For No One' and 'Hey Jude!' So where do you come up with 'Dustbin lid'?!
Submitted by: Gus
"Band On The Run"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
And the jailer man and Sailor Sam
Were searching ev'ryone
For the band on the run
Why They're Inappropriate:
First, the jailer should be guarding the jail to see that the other inmates don't escape. The police are the ones who'd be looking for them. Second, what's a SAILOR got to do with anything? And third, why are they searching EVERYONE? Are there a lot of people who look like the fugitives?

Why They're Dated:
Paul McCartney turned 64 on June 18, 2006.

"Serious Physical Abuse Against His Estranged Wife"
Subjected her to four violent attacks, including one in which he stabbed her in the arm with a broken wine glass. Continued to use illegal drugs and drink excessively, despite promises made before they married. Hurled abuse at his wife, calling her an 'ungrateful bitch'. Tried to prevent her breastfeeding, saying: 'They are my breasts.' Made her cancel a crucial operation because it interfered with his holiday plans. Objected 'vociferously' when she asked to buy an antique bedpan to save her crawling to the toilet at night.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Abbey Road Reenacted"
MTV was showing the video for Paul's hit "Spies Like Us", which is from the film of the same name. The video shows Paul playing most of the instruments in the studio, along with Linda and Chevy Chase (on synth), Dan Ackroyd and his wife Donna Dixon as well as scenes from the movie. Near the end of the song Paul gets wild and starts screaming as the tune hits a punkish frenzy. As the song ends with a fierce guitar flipout we see Dan Ackroyd stopping while crossing a street (Abbey Road!) and looking on, followed by Chevy Chase giving his deer-looking-at-the-headlights look and then Paul himself stopping and looking at you. All 3 guys are shown to be crossing the famed Abbey Road in the night time. After the video was over VJ Alan Hunter displayed a copy of the "Abbey Road" album (which shows the 4 Beatles crossing that street in the day time) to show the MTV viewer how Paul "reenacted" a Beatles album cover. And why not? He's in the Fab Four you know.
