Take a Sad Song and Make It Better

This wiki features a table noting philosophical observations in Beatles lyrics:
Her Majesty Abbey Road "Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl, but she changes from day to day." McCartney advocates stage theory.
Taxman Revolver "If you walk around, I'll tax your feet". Harrison advances neo-Lockean critique of the state: taxation as cannibalism.
Nowhere man Rubber Soul "Doesn't have a point of view, knows not where he's going to, Isn't he a bit like me and you?" Lennon takes issue with Nagel
Link (via Leiter Reports). Somebody get in there and change "me and you" to "you and me."
