Will You Still Feed Me?

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years


You never give me your money
You only give me your funny paper
And in the middle of negotiations
You break down


I'm looking through you
Where did you go
I thought I knew you
What did I know


Say you don't need no diamond ring
and I'll be satisfied
Tell me that you want the kind of thing
that money just can't buy


Though the days are few
They're filled with tears
And since I lost you,
It feels like years


She's leaving home
Bye, bye

What a wonderful songwriter Paul McCartney has been. I was a Beatles/Who/Zeppelin guy. I used to love music unitl Judy McGrath and her MTV absolutely ruined it.

I understand Heather Mills stands to gain 400 million of the estimated 1.5 billion of Sir Paul's worth.

I have a little comment on divorce settlements. While I agree that a woman should get half of what a couple has earned DURING the marriage, I strongly disagree that she deserves half of what the man (of vice versa in the case of Nick Lachey/Jessica) made BEFORE it.

To wit, if you marry a man who is worth 50 million, and he makes 10 more million in the four years you two are married, you DO NOT DESERVE 30 of the 60 millions the two of you are worth (assuming your assets were less than 100 thousand before the marrriage). I'll grant you 5 of the 10 million that was earned during the married years (and this should NOT be RE-subject to taxation upon settlement, he ALREADY paid taxes on it when it was earned by generating wealth----which the gov will never understand).

Its funny that feminists think that the old arrangements HELP them, but it really doesnt.............it usually would just work to ensure that RICH MEN only look for RICH WOMEN if they want to fall in love. It guarantees that Warren Buffet will not fall in love with his secretary. He has too much to lose. Its kind of a shame, and I'd bet if you SECRETELY polled some very wealthy men, you'd find out that they hate these laws for just that reason. It makes the field for potential "loves" for them rather small and encourages them to sport date for sex.

I believe our paternity and alimony laws are yet another reason for our low birthrates..........

And Im sad for Paul McCartney, who has always seemed a decent, honest man even though I dont always agree with his political stands. Perhaps he will be "C-moon(ed)" again someday.

Paul declined to have a pre-nup and is to this day certain she didn't marry him for his money. We'll see.

As a life long Beatle fan (having visited Liverpool twice, been to John & Paul's boyhood homes, etc.)and one who has continued to enjoy Paul's music (though not to the degree of my spouse who got us to two concerts last year that cost about $2500 between tickets, hotel, trans, etc), I'd be the first to say that John was the smartest, George was the socially conscious, Ringo was the luckiest and Paul was the most simple.
Paul's songs were, to a great extent, the most commercial, both as a Beatle and beyond. That certainly doesn't suggest that many are short of great, the quoted song being a perfect example. He seems to be a truly good soul with somewhat limited intellectual capabilities. With Linda, he had someone who he felt comfortable following as her influence on the albums "Driving Rain" and "Flaming Pie" are clear. I picture Paul asking Linda if he can keep smoking dope as long as he doesn't eat meat when he gets the munchies.
It will be interesting to see what Heather demands financially. She played little if any part in his musical career since she joined the team, while he brought her "causes" to attention they would never have gotten without Paul. That having been said, knowing Paul as I do (which is not at all - to my wife's unending disappointment), he'll "Open The Door And Let Her In". Good luck, Paul. You've got a future of your kids saying "We told you so". My suggestion: Throw a baby seal on a landmine and move on.

As musically untalented as Linda was generally, I'll have a soft spot for her performance on 'Ram'. She may not exactly be EmmyLou Harris, but her backgrounds had a real sassiness that drove that record along - think 'Monkberry Moon Delight.'

As you know better than most, I do occasionally think "Monkbeery Moon Delight". Not Paul's best most tune commercially but I think he was very happy recording it. Doubt the same is true for recent "anti land mine" though I'm sure he is generally against them, as is Dirk Mc Quickly (Rutles.)
