Too Many People Lyrics


Too Many People going underground,
Too many reaching for a piece of cake
Too many people pulled and pushed around
Too many waiting for that lucky break

That was your first mistake
You took your lucky break and broke it in two
Now what can be done for you?
You broke it in two

Too many people sharing party lines
Too many people never sleeping late
Too many people paying parking fines
Too many hungry people losing weight

That was your first mistake
You took your lucky break and broke it in two
Now what can be done for you?
You broke it in two

Too many people breaching practices
Don't let them tell you what you want to be
Too many people holding back
This is crazy and maybe it's not like me

That was your last mistake,
I find my love awake and waiting to be
Now what can be done for you?

She's waiting for me

Too Many People
  • This song alludes to John Lennon's "lucky break" - meaning The Beatles, and how he subsequently "broke it in two." It also takes barbs at John and Yoko's self-images as important political figures. Lennon retorted with a fiery condemnation of Paul on the album Imagine in a track called "How Do You Sleep?" in which Lennon says, "The only thing you've done was yesterday, and since you've gone you're just another day." This references the song "Yesterday," and a post-Beatles McCartney piece titled "Another Day."
  • The lyrics, "Too many people preaching practices" is a direct reference to John Lennon and Yoko Ono. John thought other lines in the song were about him as well.
    In an interview with the October 2010 edition of Mojo magazine, McCartney said: "'Too many people preaching practices.' I felt that was true of what was going on with John. 'Do this, do that, do this, do that.'"
  • McCartney decided to refrain from direct name-calling in this song and softened the original chorus line of "Yoko took your lucky break and broke it in two" to "You took your lucky break…"
  • This was used as the B-side of the "Uncle Albert - Admiral Halsey" single.
