Stoopid lyrics

Here is the 2nd installment of my newest blog feature "Stoopid lyrics" where I share with you a well-known song with lyrics that don't make sense.

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
by The Beatles

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
And she's gone.

CHORUS:
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Ah... Ah...

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies.
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
That grow so incredibly high.

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore
Waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds
And you're gone.

CHORUS

Picture yourself on a train in a station
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties.
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

CHORUS (repeated)

Semi-interesting tidbit: For years I thought the lyrics were "a girl with colitis goes by", instead of "a girl with kaleidoscope eyes". I always wondered how they could tell she had colitis as she passed by!

Crush du Jour: Stephen Mayse

Can I possibly even begin to tell you how many many many times I used to sing that song at the top of my lungs while driving around in my 1970 Plymouth Gold Duster.....

I would like to play in his hayloft!

PS - word is "zygod", as in "zygod, I'm about to cum!"

The lyrics are written in LSD. You obviously don't speak the language.
