George Harrison on Cream's "Badge" (1969)

"I helped Eric write 'Badge.' Each of them had to come up with a song for the Goodbye Cream album and Eric didn't have his written. We were working across from each other and I was writing the lyrics down and we came to the middle part, so I wrote down 'bridge.' Eric read it upside down, and cracked up laughing. 'What's "badge?"' he asked. After that, Ringo walked in drunk and gave us that line about the swans living in the park."
