Lyrics & their meanings Part 10 - Helter Skelter

This continuing story of song lyrics and there meaning in some of the worlds best loved songs.
Are they really as important as you make them out to be?

Helter Skelter (1968) – The Beatles

Rollicking’ number that most people on first listen must of thought it was a John Lennon composition. But Paul McCartney took
a break from writing “about boring people doing boring things” as Lennon liked to call them, to write a gritty piece of music full of menace and kicked harder than anything The Who could do. But the words were exactly as Lennon had described earlier. They are about going down a large slide at a Carnival.
Makes you think Charles Manson picked the wrong song to base his racial cleansing and murder sprees
