Subject: RE: Origins: Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey (McCartney)
When I was a grammar school boy of 13 getting into the rock music lyrics of the late 60s and early 70s,
I felt it was my duty to analyse and understand these great pearls of confounding surreal profound wisdom...
If I didn't unserstand them, it was my fault for not being clever enough...???
Because that's how we were being taught to do the same with poetry at school...
Years later I realised the lyrics were mostly complete hippy dippy stoned pretentious bollocks...
