Karen from Manchester, NhI remember being in a bus heading to a field trip when I was in Junior High, and I led the whole bus into singing this song, complete with loud "SNIFF" and "...and he wasn't joking!" shouted in the middle...and I have never, ever done drugs!
Ken from Louisville, KyIn the play out, you can hear Ringo jokingly mumbling about needing a drink.
Keith from San Francisco, CaI still like Hoyt Axton's version better, plus Cheech and Chong make a Cameo appearance in the middle of Axton's version--VERY 70s
In Gary Numan's "Cars," the message is that cars lead to a mechanical society devoid of personal interaction. This didn't stop automakers from using it in commercials. Both Nissan and Oldsmobile have used it in ads.
