Ok this was on the radio. If they hadn’t done a bloody thing all day what were they doing? Who is uncle Albert and what is the little gypsy running around? I am so confused did they blame admiral halsey?

UNCLE ALBERT / ADMIRAL HALSEY
(Paul & Linda McCartney)

We're so sorry Uncle Albert
We're so sorry if we caused you any pain
We're so sorry Uncle Albert
But there's no one left at home
And I believe I'm gonna rain
We're so sorry but we haven't heard a thing all day
We're so sorry Uncle Albert
But if anything should happen we'll be sure to give a ring
We're so sorry Uncle Albert
But we haven't done a bloody thing all day
We're so sorry Uncle Albert
But the kettle's on the boil and we're so easily called away

Hand across the water (water)
Heads across the sky
Hand across the water (water)
Heads across the sky

Admiral Halsey notified me
He had to have a berth or he couldn't get to sea
I had another look and I had a cup of tea and butter pie
(The butter wouldn't melt so I put it in the pie)

Hand across the water (water)
Heads across the sky
Hand across the water (water)
Heads across the sky

Live a little be a gypsy, get around (get around)
Get your feet up off the ground
Live a little, get around
Live a little be a gypsy, get around (get around)
Get your feet up off the ground
Live a little, get around

Hand across the water (water)
Heads across the sky
Hand across the water (water)
Heads across the sky

I've always enjoyed this song, although I have to admit I haven't thought much about its meaning. It has its own Wikipedia page that explores its meaning. But hey, it's a fun song and I like it.

McCartney has elsewhere remarked that
George Harrison, of happy memory,
used to tell him off about his song lyrics about people
like the man with the barrow in the marketplace (Obladi Oblada)
and how they had nothing to do with the real deal.

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...
