Mean Mr. Mustard (Demo)
Author: John Lennon; Lead vocal: John Lennon

(demo)
Mean Mister Mustard sleeps in the park
Shaves in the dark trying to save paper
Sleeps in a hole in the road
Saving up to buy some clothes
Keeps a ten-bob note up his nose
Such a mean old man
Such a mean old man

His sister Shirley works in a shop
She never stops, she's a go-getter
Takes him out to look at the queen
It's the only place that he's ever been
Always shouts out something obscene
You such a dirty old man
You such a dirty old man

Hey, mean Mister Mustard, such a dirty dirty
Mean Mister Mustard, such a dirty dirty
Mean Mister Mustard, such a dirty dirty man

Mean Mister Mustard sleeps in the park
Shaves in the dark trying to save paper
Sleeps in a hole in the road
Saving up to buy some clothes
Keeps a ten-bob note up his nose
Such a mean old man
Such a mean old man
