    Absolutely makes sense!

    Several years ago I dined at the Hotel California. It is not in California but rather in Cabo San Lucas.
    It was cool only for the mystique of being there.
    On a side note, this post just might be my first contribution to this forum that doesn't involve music videos!

    I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together
    See how they run like 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 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
    Lyrics continue below





















    Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess
    Boy, you been a naughty girl you let your knickers down
    I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
    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, they are the eggmen
    I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob
    Expert textpert choking smokers don't you thing the joker laughs at you?
    See how they smile like pigs in a sty, see how they snied
    I'm crying
    Semolina pilchard, climbing up the Eiffel Tower
    Elementary penguin singing Hari Krishna
    Man, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe
    I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
    I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob
    Goo goo g'joob g'goo goo g'joob g'goo...

    The first record I ever bought (45rpm) was Hello Goodbye. The flip side of that record was "I Am the Walrus"...I immediately fell in love with "Walrus"....
    although it was many years later that I somewhat understood what drugs do to the human mind.. It was cool then...not so much now.
