The Beatles – Happiness Is a Warm Gun Lyrics 16 years ago
This is the MOST CLEVER pop song ever and you're all wrong on its meaning. The song is about a woman who learns her man is cheating on her and decides to shoot him (Happiness is getting revenge on your cheating husband by shooting him). The song begins: "She’s not a girl who misses much.
Do do do do do do do do
She’s well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand
Like a lizard on a window pane." She's observant and when someone tries to conceal something she notices (You would wear velvet gloves to prevent stains and therefore prevent someone from detecting you). The next lines follow: Lying with his eyes while his hands are busy
Working overtime
A soap impression of his wife which he ate
And donated to the National Trust.
Lying with your eyes indicates infidelity while his eyes desperately try to conceal the truth, the soap impression means that he didn't have high regard for his wifes intelligence, he figured he could commit sexual infidelity and she'd never notice because she trusts him too much. Mother Superior jump the gun simply means Mother Superior (a nickname for the lady) pulled the trigger and shot him. Then comes the brilliant twist, happiness is getting back at the unfaithful man.
