I heard the news today oh boy
About a foolish lad who just married again
A crowd of people turned away
but I just had to look
Having already seen that book
I’d love to clue you in
I read the news today oh boy
About an unlucky man who made the same mistake
And though the news was rather sad
Well I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph
He cheered about his own demise
He didn’t notice that the times had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They’d seen his face before
Nobody was really sure
Why he hadn’t learned from the one legged whore
Evidently, Paul McCartney is a hopeless romantic. By all accounts he had a solid old school marriage to the love of his life who died of cancer in 1998. I can see wanting that again and he probably thought he had that when he met one legged model/land mind activist Heather Mills who he married and had a daughter with. That relationship was a train wreck and more indicative of the typical marriage experience men of today can expect when they risk getting married. His partner for life promptly slandered him in the press and sought an outrageous some of his fortune that she had no legitimate claim to. Fun quotes by Heather in wikipedia
“Although stating that they had a good sex life, Mills started complaining about the marriage to friends, saying that McCartney was “a boring old fart”, and wondering why he had no social life, as well as saying “he has no friends and it’s driving me mad”. She did not like living at the remote McCartney home in Peasmarsh: “The only thing he [McCartney] ever does is occasionally go to the pub with his roadie. We never have parties or do fun things”
She was bored of even high status Paul. This self important spoiled brat decided she was too good for The Beatles. Paul eventually got out of things ok, but maybe things would have been worse if this happened in the US vs. the UK. Either way if Paul Mccartney can get played like this imagine how helpless the average man is to a woman who has grown tired of his company for no good reason.
Paul married again and maybe it will work for him. I would say I wish him the best but in all honesty I do not know him from Jack so really have no stake in the game. I just have to ask, why Paul? Why get married again when a long term relationship could have given you all the same benefits without the same separation headaches if the need arose.
Don’t make the mistake of getting married, especially if you have already been there and done that. Instead be like the Lindsey Buckingham song, I’m never going back again.
