   Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)
by John T. Marck

Norwegian Wood

(This Bird Has Flown)

Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) by John, tells of an affair that he had. Lennon said in 1970 that he was trying to write about an affair without letting his wife (then Cynthia) know that he was writing about an affair. Although the theme is obvious, I guess at the time, Cynthia did not realize he was conveying an actual event. With Norwegian Wood, it was the first time that George Harrison played his sitar on a Beatles recording. It was recorded on October 21, 1965.

I once had a girl,

Or should I say

she once had me

She showed me her room,

Isn't it good

Norwegian wood?

She asked me to stay,

and she told me to sit anywhere

So I looked around,

and I noticed there wasn't a chair

I sat on a rug biding my time,

drinking her wine

We talked until two and then she said,

"it's time for bed"

She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh

I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the bath

And when I awoke,

I was alone,

this bird had flown

So I lit a fire,

isn't it good

Norwegian wood?
