Hey Bulldog

My friend and I just had a lovely time seeing Yellow Submarine in Technicolor glory at the very old-fashioned and beautiful Ziegfeld Theater.  I won’t go on too much about the genius of the Beatles –– it’s been done before –– but I will note that the film features a glorious, lesser-known B’s song called “Hey Bulldog.”  I suggest you listen to it now.

Are you listening yet?

Hey Bulldog

Sheep dog standing in the rain,

bullfrog doing it again.

Some kind of happiness is measured out in miles.

What makes you think you’re something special when you smile?

 

Childlike no one understands,

jackknife in your sweaty hands,

some kind of innocence is measured out in years.

You don’t know what it’s like to listen to your fears.

 

You can talk to me.

You can talk to me.

You can talk to me.

If you’re lonely you can talk to me.

 

Big man walking in the park,

wigwam frightened of the dark,

some kind of solitude is measured out in you.

You think you know it but you haven’t got a clue.

 

You can talk to me.

You can talk to me.

You can talk to me.

If you’re lonely you can talk to me. (Wowwa!)
