George Harrison Cockamamie Business Lyrics

Last updated: 03/11/2013 02:51:47 PM

Bust my back on the Levy - broke my strings on the BBC
Found my chops on Eel Pie Island - paid my dues at the Marquee
Slagged off by the N.M.E. - lost my stash and my virginity
In this Cockamamie Business

Got my face on Ed Sullivan - broke my heart on the Soul Train
Introduced to Bad Company - lost cells down at Brain Drain
And before I could mend - lost the missus, missed the girlfriend
In this Cockamamie Business

Now we like to air condition - though the air has no ozone ring
Still they're chopping down the forest for McDonalds and the Burger King
Eating cows with such persistance - doesn't offer much resistance
To this Cockamamie Business

There are too many things - stressing out the nervous system
Girls you used to know - fellas that may have kissed'em
Some got rabies - Some got fleas - some got incurable diseases
From this Cockamamie Business

Everybody's after as many points as they can get
As long as it's not them that has to pay
No one really minds the Debt
5-Star actors, tax inspectors, film producers and directors
With their Cockamamie Business

Well you do what you can - can't do much more than that
(No you can't do what he just said)
Some days you're pretty sharp - on other days you feel half dead
(While you make your daily bread)
Didn't want to be a star - wanted just to play guitar
In this Cockamamie Business

The Meaning of Life | Reviewer: Erik | 3/10/13

It's so Python'ed, you know, combined with George's own hilarious sense of humour. He should be respected for that song cause it's always a big deal to write deep lyrics and the beautiful tune for it. This time George did that very well.

George could be just as polital as John Lennon if he wanted to be but he chose a higher path, not to say that John wasn't an angel cause he was just like Paul and Ringo were too. Thank you guy's for changing our world, it needed it. Let us not forget their teachings and pass the knowledge to the next generation.
