Lyrical surprises

As I was listening to the Beatles’ White Album recently, for only the third or fourth time since high school, I realized that “Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey” is about sex. Somehow I didn’t pick up on that when I was a teenager.

The even bigger surprise, though, was that “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road?” is actually about tire-changing.
