John Lennon claims to have written the first two lines of “I Am the Walrus” on separate acid trips. But in comparison to some of the song’s later lyrics, the first two lines (“I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together/ See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly”) are hardly the most bizarre, as Lennon goes on to sing about everything from “sitting on a cornflake” to getting a tan “from the English rain.” “I Am the Walrus” is perhaps most famous for its completely random chorus: “I am the eggman/ They are the eggmen/ I am the Walrus/ Coo coo ca-choo.”
