"D'You Know What I Mean?" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
Step off the train all alone at dawn
Back into the hole where I was born
The sun in the sky never raised an eye to me
There's blood on the trax,and they must be mine
The fool on the hill,and I feel fine
Don't look back 'cause you know what you might see

Look into the wall of my mind's eye
I think I know, but I don't know why
The questions are the answers you might need
Coming in a mess,going out in style
I ain't good-looking,but I'm someone's child
No-one can give me the air that's mine to breathe

I met my maker
I made him cry
And on my shoulder he asked me why
His people won't fly through the storm
I said listen up man, they don't even know you're born

All my people right here, right now
D'you Know What I Mean? Yeah, yeah
All my people right here, right now
D'you Know What I Mean? Yeah, yeah
All my people right here, right now
D'you Know What I Mean? Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I don't really care for what you believe
So open up your fist or you won't receive
The thoughts and the words of every man you'll need
Get up off the floor and believe in life
No-one's ever gonna ever ask you twice
Get on the bus and bring it on home to me

I met my maker,
I made him cry
And on my shoulder he asked me why
His people won't fly through the storm
I said "Listen up man, they don't even know you're born"

All my people right here,right now
They Know What I Mean yeah,yeah
All my people right here,right now
They Know What I Mean yeah,yeah
All my people right here,right now
They Know What I Mean yeah,yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

All my people right here, right now
D'you Know What I Mean? Yeah, yeah
All my people right here, right now
D'you Know What I Mean? Yeah, yeah
All my people right here, right now
D'you Know What I Mean? Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

    Song MeaningThanks to lennon-mccartney and kingink for helping me understand this song.
    Yes, I think this is a song about changing musical style and influence and the fact that chords (and even tempo) are just the same as those of Wonderwall is not a case, it's INTENTIONAL and PROGRAMMATIC. See the trick? Same chords, different song: one is kind of a romantic ballad, the other rocks. And why? Because back then Oasis had a quarrel with McCartney who didn't tolerate the fact that Oasis and Beatles were compared.
    So this song is just like saying: you know what? You may have been famous and "fab" back then, but now it's our turn, there are milions of kids out there who don't even freaking know that Beatles ever existed, but they know us, they love us and sing our songs! So all my people are right here, right now, while yours are back then. Your story is over. Get along with this fact!
    And of course it's over reaction: Beatles are still a very known and worshipped band (though it's true that they're not so "fab" any more) and Oasis didn't changed that much after this song.
    But you know Gallagher bros: they tend to be quite bully-like, so "if you piss my territory, I'll devastate yours" and stuff like that...
    Great song, even for the meaning....
