"I Am the Walrus" Lyrics

by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Original Manuscript (1967)

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 t-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 Joob.

Mr city policeman sitting pretty little policeman
see how they fly like Lucy in the sky,
see how they run - I'm crying - I'm crying I'm crying

Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye
crabalocker fishwife pornographic policeman boy
you been a lucky girl you let your knickers down
I am the eggman - they are the eggmen
I am the Walrus - Goo Goog 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

As Released by the Beatles (1967)

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 T-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday
Man you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long

I am the eggman (goo) they are the eggmen (goo) I am the walrus
Goo goo g'joob

Mr. 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 (goo), 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 (goo) they are the eggmen (goo) 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 texpert, choking smokers, don't you think the joker laughs at you?
Ho ho ho, he he he, ha ha ha
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 Hare Krishna
Man you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe

I am the eggman (goo) they are the eggmen (goo) I am the walrus (goo)
Goo goo g'joob, g'goo goo g'joob
Goo goo g'joob, g'goo goo g'joob g'goo

Joob - joob - joob
Joob - joob - joob
Joob - joob
Joob - joob
Umpa, umpa, stick it up your jumper ((joob - joob))
Umpa, umpa, stick it up your jumper.

Everybody's got one, everybody's got one...

i recently bought the Love soundtrack, and have NOT stopped listening to I Am The Walrus. that's the only song i can never pass! because it is just unique.

and the lyrics changed a bit, i like the released version better.
