"Watching Rainbows" Lyrics

[Improvisation based on "I've Got a Feeling" and "I Am the Walrus" - January 14, 1969]

by John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Richard Starkey

Standing in the garden, waiting for the sun to shine
Hand my umbrella with these days, I wish it was mine
Everybody knows [...] it comes
Instead of watching rainbows, I'm gonna make me some
I said I'm watching rainbows, I'm gonna make me some

Standing in the garden, waiting for the English sun to come and make me brown so I can be someone
Looking at the bench of next door neighbours
Crying, I said c'mon, I said, save us
Everybody's got to have something hard to hoe
Well, instead of watching rainbows under the sun
You gotta get out son, and make you one
You gotta get out son, and make you run
Because you're not gonna make it if you cry, cry, you know

Shoot me
Shoot me
Whatever you do, you gotta kill somebody to get what you wanna get
You gotta shoot me
You gotta shoot big
Until you shoot me
I can't stand

More John Lennon references to guns. Strange.
