I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together. 
See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly. 
I'm crying. 
 
Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come. 
Corporation tee-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday. 
Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long. 
I am the eggman (woo), they are the eggmen (woo), I am the walrus, 
Coo coo, kachoo. 
 
Mister City P'liceman sitting 
Pretty little policemen in a row. 
See how they fly like Lucy in the Sky, see how they run. 
I'm crying. 
I'm cry, I'm crying, I'm cry, I'm crying. 
 
Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye. 
Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess, 
Boy, you been a naughty girl and you let your knickers down. 
I am the eggman (woo), they are the eggmen (woo), I am the walrus, 
Coo coo, kachoo. 
 
Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun. 
If the sun don't come, you get a tan from 
Standing in the English rain. 
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am the walrus, 
Coo coo kachoo ka coo coo kachoo. 
 
Expert texpert choking smokers, 
Don't you think the joker laughs at you? (ho ho ho, he he he, ha ha ha) 
See how they smile like pigs in a sty, see how they snide. 
I'm crying. 
 
Semolina Pilchard, climbing up the Eiffel Tower. 
Elementary penguin singing Hare Krishna. 
Man, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe. 
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am the walrus, 
Coo coo kachoo ka coo coo kachoo 
(rhythmical speaking along with juba's). 
Juba juba juba, juba, juba, juba, juba, juba, juba juba. Juba juba.....
