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 tee-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday
Man, You beer naughty boy, you let your face grow long
I am the eggman, oh they are the eggmen, oh 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
I am the eggman, oh they are the eggmen, oh I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob

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
I am the eggman, oh they are the eggmen, oh I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob

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
I am the eggman, oh they are the eggmen, oh I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob
G'goo goo g'joob, goo goo g'joob, g'goo goo g'joob, goo

Written By Noel Gallagher Published by Creation Songs Ltd / Sony Music Publishing
Listen up
What's the time said today
I'm gonna speak my mind
Take me up
To the top of the world
I wanna see my crime

Day by day
There's a man in a suit
Who's gonna make you pay
For the thoughts
That you think and the words
They won't let you say

One fine day
Gonna leave you all behind
It wouldn't be so bad
If I had more time

Sailing down a river alone
I've been trying to find
My way back home
But I don't believe in magic
Life is automatic But I don't mind being on my own
No, I don't mind being on my own

(Repeat from top)

Sailing down a river alone
I've been trying to find
My way back home
But I don't believe in magic
Life is automatic
But I don't mind being on my own
I said that I don't mind
Being on my own
No, I don't mind being on my own
I said I don't mind being on my own
