Subject: RE: lyr req: Hello Friend
Thanks for the lyrics to Hello Friend. I've often wondered if such a "friend" wouldn't find this song just a little bit patronising?
Regarding Mechanical Blackbird, I think the line is "I wouldn't build my nest out at sea" (as in, perhaps, a crow's nest?)
I've only ever heard the Spinners version of this. I never did think that Piccadilly referred to London.
