Wash your face in the morning sun

Flash your pen at the song that I'm singing

Touch down bass living on the run

Make no sweat of the hole that you're digging

Wrap up cold when it's warm outside

Your shit jokes remind me of Digsy's

Be my magic carpet ride

Fly me down to capitol city in the sun

Kickin' up a storm from the day that I was born

Sing a song for me from let it be

Open up yer eyes get a grip of yerself inside

You betcha!

    General Comment:This song is cool. I don't think it means much, just sort of a "let's party" song. There are a lot of inside jokes and references in the lyrics. Digsy's Diner is the name of a song on Definitely Maybe, and looking at the songmeanings.net comments for that song, Digsy is just some friend of one of theirs who is picky about what he eats and apparently tells bad jokes? Some guy that one of the Gallaghers likes to pick on a lot apparently. So their idea of bliss is a magic carpet ride playing Beatles songs, well we knew they worshipped the Beatles anyway...

    As for the album Be Here Now, I see a lot of people on the net commenting at length that it is an underrated album, but few people spending a lot of time saying how it's a lousy album. It's an okay album pretty much, some of the songs are just too long and have way too much guitar mixing and murkiness in them, but it's got some good stuff in it too. "Don't Go Away" is the obvious standout, "Be Here Now" and "The Girl in the Dirty Shirt" are good, "All Around the World" is good but goes on for just too long and overstays its welcome. I can't quite get to like the first 5 songs on the album no matter how hard I've tried, they're just murky and crap, sorry guys. But after having listened to it for 3 weeks, borrowed from a library, I might buy it just to complete my collection from the first 2 albums that I got which are excellent.

    General Comment:Oh - people must have notice that they borrowed some elements from other Oasis songs on this song. There's the "ow ow, yeah yeah yeah!" stuff near the end of this song, which is from "Columbia," and the weird water gushing thing which was on "Champagne Supernova." I have the feeling that there is some weird inside joke in this song that we don't know about.

    General Comment:this song means rock and roll - simple as that

    i believe 'be here now' is a quote from john lennon to describe the meaning of rock and roll. This song is just about livin it up, havin a good time and not worrying too much about the past or the future - just living for the moment

    rock and fuckin roll

    General Comment:Nonsense. There are tons of great songs on Be Here Now. "The Girl In The Dirty Shirt," "Fade In-Out," "It's Gettin' Better (Man)," "Magic Pie," "I Hope, I Think, I Know," and "D'you Know What I Mean?" All quality songs.

    General Comment:Heathen chemistry, to me, suk the most cuz they tried to make it sound like the first two albums n failed badly.
    At least, for Standing on the shoulders of giants, they tried something new.

    Definitly Maybe > Whats the story > The Masterplan > Be here now

    The Masterplan's really good

    General Comment:PARTS of the masterplan are good... the swamp song and I am the walrus? need I say more?

    I love Be here now, its my favourite album of all. I know I'll get shot for that, but still...

    All around the world? The girl in the dirty shirt? Basically all but all around the world (reprise) are fantastic songs on there!
