The duchess of KIRKCALDY always smiling
And arriving late for tea
The duke was having problems
With a message at the local Bird and Bee
Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better
So cry baby cry

yeah dropped plenty writing this masterpiece

I told you about strawberry fields
You know the place where nothing is real
Well here's another place you can go
Where everything flows.

I told you about the walrus and me, man
You know we're as close as can be, man
Well here's another clue for you all
The walrus was Paul........

Paul wisnae the Walrus.....Lennon just threw that line in "to confuse people" ;)
