Mccartney Apologises For Song About 'Japanese Lunatic'

05-12-07

SIR Paul McCartney has revealed that the mysterious final track on Abbey Road was actually a cryptic reference to Yoko Ono.

Make peace not underpants

The former Beatle has ended years of fevered speculation over the hidden meaning of Why Don't You Just Sod Off, You Crazy Japanese Cow.

McCartney said: "I wanna apologise to Yoko. I admit I was angry at the time, but I think what I was really trying to say with that song was 'he's my best friend and you're ruining the greatest thing in the history of music you spoilt, pretentious bag of piss'."

McCartney's admission finally sheds light on the enigmatic lyrics, including: "Japanese psycho, shits in her hat in the church where a wedding has been. Looks like a bream."

And Beatles fans can now find new meaning in the song's closing refrain: "We're all sick of the yellow psychopath, the yellow psychopath, the yellow psychopath…"

The McCartney masterpiece is just the latest pop classic to give up its coded personal message.

Last year the George Harrison archives re-released the song he mysteriously dedicated to Eric Clapton, giving the late Beatle a posthumous top-ten hit with For Christ's Sake Would You Please Stop Fucking My Wife.
