2歌詞及賞析

I told you about strawberry fields,
You know the place where nothing is real
Well here's another place you can go
Where everthing flows.
Looking through the bent backed tulips
To see how the other half lives
Looking through a glass onion.
I told you about the walrus and me-man
You know that we're as close as can be-man.
Well here's another clue for you all,
The walrus was Paul.
Standing on the cast iron shore-yeah,
Lady Madonna trying to make ends meet-yeah.
Looking through a glass onion.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.
Looking through a glass onion.
I told you about the fool on the hill,
I tell you man he living there still.
Well here's another place you can be,
Listen to me.
Fixing a hole in the ocean
Trying to make a dove-tail joint-yeah
Looking through a glass onion
這首歌提到了The Beatles之前的幾首歌,分別是::《Strawberry Fields Forever》、《I am The Walrus》、《Lady Madonna》、《The Fool on the Hill》和《Fixing a Hole》。也很微妙地間接提到了《There's a Place》、《I'm Looking Through You》和《Within You Without You》。還提到了一首來自利物浦、名叫The Cazzy的當地樂隊的一首作品《Cast Iron Shore》。
歌詞里有一句:「The Walrus was Pau」是參考《I Am The Walrus》,John說的 "something nice to Paul"指的是當時他與Paul的關係的變化,當卻扯到「保羅已死」的傳聞。

3披頭自己的評論

列儂:「《Glass Onion》令我會心微笑,因為實在有太多關於「Sgt. Pepper」令人費解的文字了。人們都在說『把自己倒豎蔥,然後將唱片倒回播放,你就會聽到些絕密信息,等等。』為什麽 ?就在前天,我在電視看到Mel Torme說我的幾首歌寫來只是為宣揚嗑藥,但,真的,一首都沒有。因此,這首歌就是以我的方式去說,『你一肚子是屎!』」 Celebration
George Harrison指這首歌是專集中他最喜歡的歌之一。
列儂:「是我的,只是寫首沒意思的歌 . . . 我把詞 - The Walrus was Paul 塞進去就只是想令大家有一點點迷惑。」 Playboy (1980年9月號)
