"Wah-wah" as written by James Patrick Page and Robert Plant....
Wah-wah
You've given me a wah-wah
And I'm thinking of you
And all the things that we used to do
Wah-wah, wah-wah

Wah-wah
You made me such a big star
Being there at the right time
Cheaper than a dime
Wah-wah, you've given me your
Wah-wah, wah-wah

Oh, you don't see me crying
Oh, you don't hear me sighing

Wah-wah
I don't need no wah-wah
And I know how sweet life can be
If I keep myself free, wah-wah
I don't need no wah-wah

Oh, you don't see me crying
Hey baby, you don't hear me sighing
Oh, no, no, no, no

Wah-wah
Now I don't need no wah-wahs
And I know how sweet life can be
If I keep myself free of wah-wah
I don't need no wah-wah

Wah-wah, wah-wah, wah-wah
Wah-wah, wah-wah, wah-wah
Wah-wah, wah-wah

    General CommentTo me, the song has something (but only something, not everything) to do with Harrisons love of guitars (or music in general). Earlier, he wrote a song about all kind of things happening while his guitar gently wept; this time the wah-wah-guitar features.
    I didn't know that wah-wah meant a headache. Did George come up with this meaning? Did the wah-wah sound coming out of a guitar cause Georges head to ache?
    The song is a good one to open a show with (as George did on - the interesting part of - the concert for Bangladesh). Maybe 'wah-wah' was just the combination of sounds that this kind of song needed to make it grand. Maybe George only added a meaning to it when he tried to write some lyrics around this 'wah-wah' chorus.

    General Commentits about the beatles during the recording of Let It Be. The wah-wah meaning a headache. Atleast thats how he explained it in his book, I ME Mine.

    General Commenti get this song as George giving up drugs. "i dont need no wah-wah" "all the things that we used to do" "cheaper than a dime" etc.

    General CommentI agree with Krstki I thought it was about how his guitar playing made him famous and how he doesn't need it anymore.

    General CommentIt's supposedly about Paul McCartney when the Betales were falling apart. It makes sense for the "you made me such a big star" line and such but the wah-wah part im not sure how it can relate to Paul.

    General Commentthis song is awesome..vintage george. i first heard it on the concert for bangladesh and was blown away. they couldn't have picked a better intro for the show. The studio version is even better..you really get a sense of the times listening to All things must pass
