"Not Guilty" as written by and Brinsley Allan Forde....
Not guilty
For getting in your way
While you're trying to steal the day.
Not guilty
And I'm not here for the rest,
I'm not trying to steal your vest.

I am not trying to be smart,
I only want what I can get.
I'm really sorry for your ageing head.
But like you heard me said:
Not guilty.

No use handing me a writ
While I'm trying to do my bit.

I don't expect to take your heart.
I only want what I can get.
I'm really sorry that you're underfed.
But like you heard me said:
Not guilty.

Not guilty
For looking like a freak,
Making friends with every Sikh.
Not guilty
For leading you astray
On the road to Mandalay.

I won't upset the apple cart.
I only want what I can get.
I'm really sorry that you've been misled.
But like you heard me said:
Not guilty.

    General CommentAs far as I know, this was another of George's reflections on the Get Back/Let It Be sessions, another tongue in cheek response to the anger and disharmony between them all at the time...

    General Commentnot so much get back/let it be sessions because this song was written during the white album. this and what a shame mary jane were supposed to be on there... which, i think this song could have fit perfectly on the white album but as most know george was over shadowed by lennon/mccartney. i think that's what this song is about. definately tounge in cheek.
