Happiness Is A Warm Gun

Lyrics

She's not a girl who misses much
Do do do do do do, oh yeah

She's well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand like a lizard on a window pane.

The man in the crowd with the multi-colored mirrors on his hobnail boots.

George's and Paul's favorite from the White Album.

One of the more progressive Beatle tracks, but too short. They should've done more of these.

Sex, drugs, and guns all at once. This is a great Beatles song--one of Lennon's best.

John got the idea from a magazine cover which had the teaser line "Happiness is a warm gun" (or something similar) and he thought what an extraordinar y and terrible thing to say. Someone is happy they just shot someone or something.

how much acid were they on when they wrote this one? sounds nice, but comparing happiness to a gun? strange. but yet, somehow interesting
