The Lyrics

i have every reason to rush...go like mad
cause i just heard my girlie needs me bad
on horseback, i could sway
i'd love to take a train today
but i can' i'll fly instead

i'd rather stand on the shoulder and hitch hike to the east
i could walk to phoenix in a week
i'd even ride a cow
or try and catch a bus, somehow
but i can' i'll fly instead

don't wanna fly in that airplane there
i get scared when they're in the air
i wish there was another way-ay
i must get her today

and what i do when i must fly is absurd
that's when the drinkin' starts, till i'm a-whirl
then i'll take a downer or two
with just a little shovin' by the crew
i'm pushed in...i'll fly instead

I don't know all the later Beatles stuff...only some of the early, like..Love Me Do...etc...but I like your clever contrasts, and especially the line, "I'd even ride a cow" that's real love!....I grew up on a farm..and a cow is probably the worst animal in the world to sit about a backbone wedgie!
