    Taken from a Christians p.o.v. sun is a reference to Jesus Christ as is king....but none of the other lyrics fit in...maybe everyone's laughing and happy bc the messiah has come? Just one way to think of it..bc in you never give me your money they repeat "1,2,3,4,5,6,7 all good children go to heaven"

    What a bunch of morons with your interpretations...Here’s a novel idea! How about getting the interpretation directly from the Beatles...Duh!

    SUN KING
    (Lennon/McCartney)

    JOHN 1969: "We just started joking, you know, singing `quando para mucho.´ So we just made up... Paul knew a few Spanish words from school, you know. So we just strung any Spanish words that sounded vaguely like something. And of course we got `chicka ferdy´ in. That´s a Liverpool expression. Just like sort of-- it doesn´t mean anything to me but (childish taunting) `na-na, na-na-na!´ `Cake and eat it´ is another nice line too, because they have that in Spanish-- 'Que' or something can eat it. One we missed-- we could have had 'para noya,' but we forgot all about it."


    JOHN 1980: "That's a piece of garbage I had around."


    GEORGE 1987: "At the time, 'Albatross' (by Fleetwood Mac) was out, with all the reverb on guitar. So we said, 'Let's be Fleetwood Mac doing Albatross, just to get going.' It never really sounded like Fleetwood Mac... but that was the point of origin."

    If for much, my love of happy heart.

    World Paparazzi, my love, green girl for the sun.

    This, thanks very much, cake and eat it, dearest sun.



    Let's break this apart term by term:

    "Parasol" is an umbrella.

    "Paparazzi" are people who take pictures of celebrities.

    "Que can eat it" should be "que/cake and eat it".

    "Carousel" could be doing double duty as "cara sole" (dearest sun).

    "Obrigado" is Portuguese for thank you.

    It does seem like a trance or spell with the hypnotic tune. but it could really just e a relaxing peace song

    I believe that the Sun King is not a nice character. First of all if you listen to the song carefully "Everybody's laughing, Everybody's happy" sounds as if everybody is under some kind of hypnotic spell. Notice how this song goes right into Mean Mr. Mustard as if to say the Sun King IS Mean Mr. Mustard.
