Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Live And Let Die"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
If this ever changing world in which we live in
Why They're Repetitive:
Not only is the second 'in' redundant, the whole phrase 'in which we live' is unnecessary. Obviously, we live in this world. 'If this ever changing world...makes you give in and cry...' would be the grammatically economic way of expressing his thought. Using some half-notes and whole notes with the shorter phrase could have accomplished this. But then again, Paul can't read music, can he?
Submitted by: Andy

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Band On The Run"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
And the jailer man and Sailor Sam
Were searching ev'ryone
For the band on the run
Why They're Inappropriate:
First, the jailer should be guarding the jail to see that the other inmates don't escape. The police are the ones who'd be looking for them. Second, what's a SAILOR got to do with anything? And third, why are they searching EVERYONE? Are there a lot of people who look like the fugitives?
Submitted by: Aristotle
"Band On The Run"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
And a bell was ringing in the village square
For the rabbits on the run
Why They're Inappropriate:
Did I miss something? At what point did they start looking for rabbits?!
Submitted by: Aristotle

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Abbey Road Reenacted"
MTV was showing the video for Paul's hit "Spies Like Us", which is from the film of the same name. The video shows Paul playing most of the instruments in the studio, along with Linda and Chevy Chase (on synth), Dan Ackroyd and his wife Donna Dixon as well as scenes from the movie. Near the end of the song Paul gets wild and starts screaming as the tune hits a punkish frenzy. As the song ends with a fierce guitar flipout we see Dan Ackroyd stopping while crossing a street (Abbey Road!) and looking on, followed by Chevy Chase giving his deer-looking-at-the-headlights look and then Paul himself stopping and looking at you. All 3 guys are shown to be crossing the famed Abbey Road in the night time. After the video was over VJ Alan Hunter displayed a copy of the "Abbey Road" album (which shows the 4 Beatles crossing that street in the day time) to show the MTV viewer how Paul "reenacted" a Beatles album cover. And why not? He's in the Fab Four you know.

"Vegetarianism and Animal Rights"
McCartney was known for his action for Animal Rights and when he's on tour, he tells the concessions to not serve meat.

I mean c'mon, shut up about him and Heather Mills, he is the most influential singer ever and all you have to talk about is his divorce?
Submitted by: Bill Braskey
"Being 'Dead'"
In the Beatles, he had a whole bunch of clues of him being dead. They said he was in a car accident 'at 5:00 as the day begins' and was replaced by some guy named William Campbell, better known as Billy Shears.
