    Hey Mr.Tambourine Man ,

    Check all the drug references in the lyrics ,

    basically old bobs had sum beans, hes not tired coz hes still abit fucked up!!

    hes been on a mish all night, pills arnt in his hand anymore, he wants some more beans, hes sat down the beach to get away from normal life and sorrow, and fucking work off untill the next day, he waits to score so his bootheels ( feet ) can go on another mission , bless him .. so he put it down in a famous song, that weve all heard, but only a few realise its about old bob on a comedown wanting to score some good lads .. bless

    Hey ! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
    Hey ! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.
    Though I know that evenin's empire has returned into sand
    Vanished from my hand
    Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
    My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet
    I have no one to meet
    And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming.

    Hey ! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
    Hey ! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

    Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship
    My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip
    My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels
    To be wanderin'
    I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
    Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way
    I promise to go under it.

    Hey ! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
    Hey ! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

    Though you might hear laughin', spinnin' swingin' madly across the sun
    It's not aimed at anyone, it's just escapin' on the run
    And but for the sky there are no fences facin'
    And if you hear vague traces of skippin' reels of rhyme
    To your tambourine in time, it's just a ragged clown behind
    I wouldn't pay it any mind, it's just a shadow you're
    Seein' that he's chasing.

    Hey ! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
    Hey ! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

    Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind
    Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
    The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
    Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
    Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
    Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
    With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
    Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

    Hey ! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
    Hey ! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

    when youve had a session on class A's before , and go on a nice walking mission, and come down .. you can relate to this song then, look closely , the Tambourine Man is a dodgy skag dealer from skegness called Gavin

    Its pretty obvious, but Another Girl Another Planet about skag. One of my favourite songs ever. Can't believe fucking Blink 182 were allowed to do a cover of such a great British song. Anyway

    On the subject, best skag reference is in The Libertines track Skag and Bone Man: "We can stay at home and call the skag and bone man - dig our graves out with a spoon".

    no hidden meaning but this was what grimey was like back in the day.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITsvPjbEPtc

    "EARLY ONE MORNING WHILE I WAS DOING THE ROUNDS,

    I TOOK A SHOT OF COCAINE AN I SHOT MY WOMAN,

    I WENT RIGHT HOME AND I WENT TO BED,

    AND STUCK MY LOVIN 44 BENEATH MY HEAD"

    Im still not sure what the meaning is behind this song, but I like it, gives me an unparalleled sense of unreality and imagination

    "Nothing to get hung about,
    Strawberry Fields Forever"

    and also is abviously stood out in the acid hippy days , because there were strawberry trips, i think it a play on words, and you know .. the great famous songs, arnt meant to mean one solid thing, its open for your interpretation and thats how they are written.

    Before being a care home, it was a mental institute. Its the hospital featured in the video. The link between mental illness and hallucinogenics was what drove Lennon to write the song, after comparing his experiences on acid and spending time at Strawberry Fields as a kid.

    Randomly, Strawberry Fields was the first music video in the world. Before this video, bands just used live recordings from TV performances and such.
