Watching the Wheels Lyrics
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin,
When I say that I'm o.k. they look at me kind of strange,
Surely your not happy now you no longer play the game,
People say I'm lazy...

John Simply states that he's not a beatle anymore and does not want to be...he's living a different life now, a more peaceful one, basically enjoying the simple things of life,something he could not do cause of the great amount of preasure while he was a Beatle.

Simple...John had a little boy and decided it best to be home with his son since he never had a dad who was at home with him. He felt bad about never having that father/son relationship with Julian (because of the Beatles phenomenon) so he did with his next child. Toy cars or trucks, or whatever it was was the vehicle that John drove with his most precious son and together they both were happy kids...just doing nothing...which is the most something. After all they were just watching the wheels go round and round. If you haven't done that you haven't lived.
He saids that he's just enjoying life and decided to quit being what society says he should be. He's quit trying to make money or give himself some fake image. To others he seems like he's just wasting his life, but he's wise enough to know that they are the ones that are wasting their lives.

John Lennon left the greatest entertainment phenomenon ever known. The Beatles evolved through their brief years and every album disenchanted some of the old fans. (It's a long way from Love Me Do to Helter Skelter.) This song seems to be the song for anyone who is trying to differentiate him/herself in life, individuals who no longer want to play the same sorry "role" they've played in their family or social system. It's the song of the business exec who is farming now, the lesbian who has tired of pretending for everyone else, the abused, but financially secure wife who moves to an efficiency apartment with her integrity intact.
