Album: Everything Will Be Alright in the End

Premise[edit]

Rivers Cuomo wrote the song about the British rock-band, The Beatles — and their habits of jerking off together during the early 1960s.

An ode to a Beatles classic[edit]

Cuomo has also said that he thinks of the song as a sort of "sequel song", much like how the Lennon solo song "Woman" (not the Klaatu one — which maybe in itself is a Beatles reference since their "Woman" song was written by a German fella) is a continuation of the Beatle track "Girl".

The song is also inspired by the Lennon penned "Come Together" in which John said;

Come together, over me.

Until 2014, listeners thought that this lyric was just something random that popped into John's head, much like the entirety of "I am the Walrus". However, Cuomo decrypted the strange sentence and got the idea that John wanted the rest of the Beatles to jizz over him.

The song was also supposed to have a third reference to the British rock-band by being included on the 2016 Weezer (White Album), just like the Beatles White Album. This ended up not being the case. Additionally, it wouldn't have made much sense considering that "Come Together" was on Abbey Road.

Lyrics[edit]

"Welcome to the first level in Hamburg

Our mission is to keep the tradition alive

It's up to us

It's our responsibility

Who else is going to do it?"


This is the night

Light up the fire in the lounge

We're not the boys in the basement of old Harvey Weinstein

One if by photo

Two if they come by video

We'll show 'em we are the true sons of liberty


Punk ass managers tryin' to run the show

Telling me what to do and where to come

Grab your lube 'cause it's time to tell the world

The British are coming

The British are coming

The British are coming


Smear on the soot

Tear up a section of toilet paper

We know we should clean this up


Punk ass parents tryin' to run the show

Telling me what to do and where to come

Get your porn 'cause it's time to tell the world

The British are coming

The British are coming

The British are coming


This is the destiny of The Beatles

We will shake off the rest and slurp up the excess

Come on let's give them everything we have


The British are coming

The British are coming

The British are coming

Reception[edit]

Upon hearing the song, Paul McCartney was "disgusted" that this "weezy" band would make such a song about the best nights that the former Beatle had with his friends. Ringo Starr, on the other hand, approved of the song saying "peace and love, peace and cum".
