The Lyrics

Here's a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_niy2ZM5Jo . This video could also be called "While My Guitar Gently Laughs." Either all those items were being moved by the ghost of George's old pal John Lennon, or this was George's anti-drug message: "This is what being on LSD is like, kids. I figured it out, so you don't have to!"
(drum opening)

I got the dog out of chair
so I can sit in my chair.
I bring guitar to my chair
so I can play in my chair.

This is gonna be funny.
A video that's really funny.
It's gonna be plenty of funny.
Maybe a little wild.

So won't you take time?
Three minutes, 50 seconds' time?
While we're on the subject of time...
That clock is
That clock is
That clock is
That clock is
That clock and
that book are
whoa, wild.

I got this weird video.
It really is weird, you know.
The weirdest you've seen, I'm sure
since "Magical Myst'ry Tour."

This time the parrot bobs
and crossed swords wave and lob.
I knew if I put my mind to it
I'd show Paul I really can do it!

I got my bird bobbing, whoo!
Deer talks, too!
I got my bird bobbing, whoo!
Warthog, too!

And I think I want money!
The drawer in my desk spouts money!
The Taxman won't get my money.
Not Maggie or Neil.

I'm gonna do dance!
A backflip and silly dance!
Not really me who's doing the dance.
Stunt double!
Stunt double!
Stunt double!
Stunt double!
Stunt double!
Stunt double?
Real?

(instumental break)

I got myself back in chair.
My dance is done, back in chair.
I got myself back in chair.
My dance is done, back in chair.

This time you know it's real.
The real George, that's the deal.
I knew, if I put my mind to it
this video, I wouldn't have blew it!

But it had to take money!
A whole lot of spending money!
To move all these objects took money
to do it right, child.

It had to take time!
Stop-motioning filming time!
It had to take patience and time.
But...
we got it
we got it
we got it
we got it
we got it
we got it
right!

Deer sings song!
Hog sings song!
Wig on bust?
Eyes, can't trust!
Saxopipe?
Flowers sing!
Painting snaps?
Bear is trapped!
Good night, folks!
Good night, folks!
(repeat 'til fade)
"Maggie" and "Neil," of course, are Margaret Thatcher and Neil Kinnock, Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition, respectively, of Britain at the time this video was made, as opposed to their counterparts when George and the other Beatles did "Taxman," Harold Wilson and Edward Heath. And the stunt double looks more like Kenny Loggins than George.
