Things I Just Don't Understand: Sir Paul's Post-Beatle Career
I think I’ve made myself clear.
“Silly Love Songs,” according to Wikipedia (so I KNOW it’s true**) was his reply to critics who said he wrote too many lightweight songs.
Let me repeat that. He was criticized for being soft. And THIS was his answer:
You'd think that people
Would have had enough
Of silly love songs
I look around me and I see it isn't so
Some people wanna fill the world
With silly love songs
And what's wrong with that?
I'd like to know
'cause here I go again
I love you, I love you
What’s wrong with that? You’re kidding right?
That’s like being the guy who waterboards a terrorist and, after his practices are called into question, he introduces a fire hose to the proceedings.
That’s like OJ introducing a line of knives so sharp they can cut barbed wire outside his prison
