"Mr. Bellamy" as written by and Paul Mccartney....
I'm not coming down
No matter what you do
I like it up here without you

Go light, Mr. Bellamy
We'll have you down soon

No one to tell me what to do
No one to hold my hand
Bellamy's got a lot to do
And I hope that you'll understand

Nobody here to spoil the view
Interfere with my plans
Bellamy's got a job to do
And he's hoping you'll understand

Steady lads
And easy does it
Ooh, don't frighten him!
Here we go...

I'm not coming down
No matter what you say
I like it up here anyway

Sit tight, Mr. Bellamy
This shouldn't take long

In the delusionary state (Easy)
No wonder he's been feeling strange of late (Easy)

Nobody here to spoil the view
Interfere with my plans
Bellamy's got a job to do
And he's hoping you'll understand

Steady lads
Easy does it
Don't frighten him!
Here we go...
Here we go...

I'm not coming down
No matter what you do
I like it up here without you

Come down, come down, come down, come down to me
Come down, come down, come down, come down to me
Come down, come down, come down, come down to me
Come down

    General CommentI kinda get the feeling that Mr. Bellamy's on a drug trip or something...like he's "high" and he's not coming down.

    General CommentIts about his divorce with Heather Mills. "Mr Bellamy" is an anagram of "Mills Betray Me". And some of the lyrics like " I'm not coming down No matter what you I like it up here without you"

    General CommentI think it might be about a person wanting to commit suicide, standing at the top of a building or something similar. anyway' it could also be about a drug habbit' could be BOTH!

    General CommentI thought it was about some one who works for him like his gardener or something. I like the Mills anagram thing but I'm always skeptical of things like that.

    Remember Lucy In The Sky with Diamonds?

    General CommentI faintly remember reading an interview with Paul in which he says it's just a basic story about someone wanting to commit suicide, which makes perfect sense if you read the lyrics.

    @ the person who said that he/she thinks it's about a cat: Brilliant! You just made my day. If you look at it from that perspective it's actually a really funny song! Cats always seem to be able to get stuck in a tree when they're young.

    My InterpretationMy general impression of this song over many listens is of a suicide jumper at the top of a building, with a group of policemen on the ground trying to talk him down.

    But I just love the childish defiance of Mr Bellamy, summed up by that extraordinarily cheeky keyboard line - absolutely wonderful playing, the feeling of that melody line, it's almost a musical thumbing of the nose, genius Macca.

    "In the delusionary state" with all those effects on it makes me think of hallucinogenics, so maybe it is someone who has taken too much acid and thinks they can fly or something, further backed up by him saying "Bellamy's got a job to do", as if he's on some acid-fuelled mission of little understanding to anyone but himself.

    I doubt the anagram theory, simply because it bears no relation to the words in the song, really, that I can see. But it's a great song, great fun to listen to, and a great moment in the album.
