PAUL 1968: 'The idea of 'Happiness Is A Warm Gun' is from an advert in an American paper.
It said, Happiness is a warm gun, and it was 'Get ready for the long hot summer with a rifle,' you know, 'Come and buy them now!' It was an advert in a gun magazine.
And it was so sick, you know, the idea of 'Come and buy your killing weapons,' and 'Come and get it.' But it's just such a great line, 'Happiness Is A Warm Gun' that John sort of took that and used that as a chorus.
And the rest of the words… I think they're great words, you know.
It's a poem.
And he finishes off, 'Happiness Is A Warm Gun, yes it is.' It's just good poetry.'

JOHN 1972: 'Thay all said it was about drugs, but it was more about rock 'n roll than drugs.
It's sort of a history of rock 'n roll… I don't know why people said it was about the needle in heroin.
I've only seen somebody do something with a needle once, and I don't like to see it at all.'

JOHN 1980: 'A gun magazine was sitting around and the cover was the picture of a smoking gun.
The title of the article, which I never read, was 'Happiness Is a Warm Gun.' I took it right from there.
I took it as the idea of happiness after having shot somebody.
Or some animal.'

She's not a girl who misses much
Do do do do do do do do, oh yeah
She's well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand
Like a lizard on a window pane
The man in the crowd with the multicoloured mirrors
On his hobnail boots
Lying with his eyes while his hands are busy
Working overtime
A soap impression of his wife which he ate
And donated to the National Trust

Down
I need a fix 'cause I'm going down
Down to the bits that I left uptown
I need a fix 'cause I'm going down

Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun

Happiness is a warm gun (Happiness bang, bang, shoot, shoot)
Happiness is a warm gun, mama (Happiness bang, bang, shoot, shoot)
When I hold you in my arms (Oo-oo oh yeah)
And I feel my finger on your trigger (Oo-oo oh yeah)
I know nobody can do me no harm (Oo-oo oh yeah)

Because happiness is a warm gun, mama (Happiness bang, bang, shoot, shoot)
Happiness is a warm gun, yes it is (Happiness bang, bang, shoot, shoot)
Happiness is a warm, yes it is, gun (Happiness bang, bang, shoot, shoot)
Well, don't you know that happiness is a warm gun, mama? (Happiness is a warm gun, yeah)
