Here come old flattop he come grooving up slowly
He got juju eyeball he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger he shoot coca-cola
He say "I know you, you know me"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together right now over me

He bag production he got walrus gumboot
He got ono sideboard he one spinal cracker
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease
Come together right now over me

He roller-coaster he got early warning
He got muddy water he one mojo filter
He say "one and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me

    In this song there actually talking about God.
    "holy roller"
    "He say "one and one and one is three""
    The the father the son and the holy spirit.

    This song is relating to John Lennons dislike for religion.
    He thinks that you should be a free spirit instead of comforming.

    "Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease"
    Armchair = Church.
    Disease = Christinty.
    Like how when some people walk into a church they say the can feel the Holy Spirit.

    "Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see"
    No one knows what God looks like.

    "He say "I know you, you know me"
    God apparently knows all of us and we know what read from the bible...

    In response to the above posts by hollyjean7 and skully340, we can truthfully say that that is an extremely observation, but is probably the least likely approach: if it had anything to do with christianity, then it would have been paul who wrote it. Along with the whole "paul-is-dead" theory, there is another theory: that paul converted to christianity (not formally, or announced) but he continues some of his old practices (drugs, alcohol, etc. ) while dropping most of the religious practices (meditation in zen forms), and adding a few modern practices and hinting his conversion in songs like "freedom. " "holy roller"=rolling joints in bible pages. Basically, i'm saying that ajdsoto is right, except for the hair in verse one: john had teh hair, paul generally kept his relatively short.

    @ajdsoto one and one and one is three= ringo, george and john
    Got to be good looking 'cause he's so hard to see= paul's spirit and because he's goodlooking. During the time when they were writing the song, rumors have spread that paul is dead

    Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease = yoko taking over his life, breaking up the band. = false. Original lyrics: hold you in his arm yeah you can feel his disease. He changed it to armchair because most lyric books got the lyrics wrong that instead of arm yea, they put armchair. Lennon liked it and officially changed the lyrcs.
