The walrus
« on: March 30, 2004, 01:42:31 AM »

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?

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

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.

Someone told john that his songs were starting to get in a rut. so he wrote a very odd and different song that was ment to make no sense. so that there would no reason for people to ask him what he ment.

Um, according to "The Walrus Was Paul: The Great Beatles's Death Clues of 1969" lol, it was about the Walrus and the Carpenter which was the story of the walrus that led all the clams or oysters or whatever to follow him and then he ate them all. Which could have many meanings, I dono, the book was talking about it having to do with Paul being dead, who knows. *shrugs*

The interworkings of John's mind are too genious for mine to try and understand...
