The Beatles song, “I Am The Walrus” was playing when I first walked into my high school senior English class.
My teacher asked us to analyze the lyrics. I figured John Lennon wrote it in a Moroccan teashop under a cloud of hashish. Lyrics like, “Sitting on a cornflake” and “Elementary penguin singing Hari Krishna” seemed to be fueled by acid or ganja.
That may be true. But the DVD, Composing the Beatles Songbook, claims that Lennon wrote it to confuse scholars who were trying to dissect the Beatles’ songs. Investors who are new to index funds may feel the same way.
