Here are the lyrics:


I told you about strawberry fields 
You know the place where nothing is real 
Well here's another place you can go 
Where everything flows 
Looking through the bent backed tulips 
To see how the other half live 
Looking through a glass onion 

I told you about the walrus and me, man 
You know that we're as close as can be, man 
Well here's another clue for you all 
The walrus is Paul 
Standing on the cast iron shore, yeah 
Lady Madonna trying to make ends meet, yeah 
Looking through a glass onion 
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah 
Looking through a glass onion 

I told you about the fool on the hill 
I tell you man he's living there still 
Well here's another place you can be 
Listen to me 
Fixing a hole in the ocean 
Tryin' to make a dovetail joint 
Looking through a glass onion!

I know the meaning of the bent-back tulips, if anyone is interested! I can't remember what book it was in, though. Long story short, there was this restaurant that the boys liked to visit because it was so upscale/stuffy that all of the other customers ignored the boys since they thought they were above them. The owner always had fresh tulips that had their petals bent back to look like art/sculptures in the middle of every table. That's why when they were looking through the bent-back tulips, they were literally seeing how the other half lives...the rich snobs! :]


The book probably explained this way better than I did...
