The walrus

(1/2) > >>

Rocky Raccoon:
Anybody has any idea, or a theory, of what did John Lennon mean when he wrote I am the walrus, specifically in the lines that say "I am the eggman" and "I am the walrus". Is that supposed to mean anything at all?

JWL:
It means, "Goo Goo G' joob!"  The answer is in the micro-space particles betwixt the linguistic symbols!

Bruno:
I don't understand the lyrics of the song, but all I know is that the song is awesome

:
The Walrus is from the Lewiss Caroll poem The Walrus and the Carpenter (in Alice in Wonderland).

The eggman is a bit more mysterious, but there is a notion it is about Eric Burdon of the Animals, who had a strange penchant for breaking eggs over groupie's bodies.

pc31:
yeah i heard that too but you start as an egg too.maybe he was deeper........
