    General CommentIt's witty, NOT FUNNY. Is spousal abuse funny? Poverty?

    The Walrus is a character in "Through the Looking Glass." He came across as a really nice guy. His kindness enticed a group of clams to follow him. When he got back to his house, he proceeded to shuck and eat the clams.

    General CommentAwesome song, Hate how the lyrics are on here so here so you can read it a tad easier...


    Check, check it out, check, check it out
    Check, check it out, check, check it out
    Check, check it out, check, check it out
    Check it out

    I'm in line behind a barbizon
    And she really looks like one
    She says "Hi, I'm skin,"
    And showed a whole lot
    But doesn't seem to have a whole lot
    Within, I'm small talk
    Blah, blah, blah, blah about the weather and all
    Because I'd love to stand here
    Another year, winter, spring, summer, fall
    Into pieces it pleases the eye
    It's nice to know that there are problems outside of my own

    I feel better, better
    Move to ten items or less
    Should I let her, let her, let me in front of her?
    Sure, I guess
    I'm close to checkout, she asks,
    "Are you the walrus?"
    I said "yes" without listening
    "Oh, come on, be honest."
    I'm close to checkout, she asks,
    "Are you the walrus?"
    I said, "Yes, and that's a promise!"
    "Oh, come on, be honest."
    Be, be honest, be, be, be honest
    Be, be honest, be, be, be honest

    I have five items in the waiting asylum
    Take everybody's burdens, let's pile 'em up
    On the counter, call it a conveyer belt
    And as I look around I see a wanna-be dad using his belt
    On his screaming baby, a baby, oh baby
    The constellation on her face said he did the same to his lady
    Ten thousand maniacs asked the question
    But it's way too late, he made a lasting impression
    I wish it wasn't so, I wish it wasn't so
    But I'm not supposed to impose family values, you know
    The sale of the century wasn't meant to be like this
    But how can you resist the madness?
    I'm so glad it's almost my turn
    Only one lady away from the freedom I yearn for
    But before you get excited,
    She's gotta check the writing,
    I'm sorry to announce that the check is gonna bounce

    I feel better, better
    Move to ten items or less
    Should I let her, let her, let me in front of her?
    Sure I guess
    I'm at the checkout
    She asks, "Are you the walrus?"
    I said "yes" without listening
    "Oh, come on, be honest."
    I'm at the checkout,
    She asks, "Are you the walrus?"
    I said, "Yes, and that's a promise."
    "Oh, come on, be honest."
    Be, be honest, be, be, be honest
    Be, be honest, be, be, be honest

    Honestly,
    We are moderately moving
    Situation slowly is improving
    I find the Percy Faith on the P.A.
    Is sort of soothing
    Collect my change and I jet
    Then I'm cruising

    Check, check it out, check, check it out
    Check, check it out, check, check it out
    Check, check it out, check, check it out
    Check it out

    Wandering around looking for my car
    I'm amazed at the maze
    Who even knows where you are?
    Who knows why that's a cart resting in the dent it made?
    Another car waiting for our places to trade
    I wish it wasn't so, I wish it wasn't so
    I wish I was in the distance and heading to home base
    And now the race to red lights begin
    When the convertible girl slows down to let me in

    I feel better, better, like as if I was blessed
    Should I let her, let her, let me in front of her?
    Sure, I guess
    I roll down the window, she asks,
    "Are you the walrus?"
    I said "yes" without listening
    "Oh, come on, be honest"
    I roll down the window, she asks,
    "Are you the walrus?"
    I said "Yes, and that's a promise!"
    "Oh, come on, be honest."
    Be, be honest, be, be, be honest
    Be, be honest, be, be, be honest

    General Commentthis is a christian rap song (as is all their songs) about a guy in a grocery store looking around and seeing what's become of the world that god has created for us... as for the walrus reference it's part of a john lennon song "i am the walrus" where he mistook the walrus for the good guy, but really the walrus from Lewis Carroll's "Alice In Wonderland" was meant to symbolize the evils of false images... what i think she means by asking "are you the walrus" however is more of a "do you think you're perfect just cause you appear to be?"... at least the people in the grocery store show their imperfections and aren't ashamed of them. be honest, be be be honest.

    General CommentI think this song is asking John Lennon if he is the walrus and The Beatles' song is their answer to this song.
