Lyrics of Too Many People

Too many people going underground
Too many reaching for a piece of cake
Too many people pulled and pushed around
Too many waiting for that lucky break
That was your first mistake
You took your lucky break and broke it in two
Now what can be done for you
You broke it in two

Too many people sharing party lines
Too many people never sleeping late
Too many people paying parking fines
Too many hungry people losing weight

That was your first mistake
You took your lucky break and broke it in two
Now what can be done for you
You broke it in two

Too many people preaching practices
Don't let them tell you what you wanna be
Too many people holding back, this is
Crazy and maybe it's not like me

That was your last mistake
I find my love awake and waiting to be
Now what can be done for you
She's waiting for me

'Too Many People' is a song by Paul McCartney from his 1971 album 'Ram' as well as the B-side of the 'Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey' single.

The song is one of several instances of 'musical sniping' among the four Beatles after the band broke up, the target in this case presumed to be McCartney's former bandmate and songwriting partner John Lennon. '[John had] been doing a lot of preaching, and it got up my nose a little bit,' said McCartney in a 1984 interview with 'Playboy'. 'I wrote, 'Too many people preaching practices,' I think is the line. I mean, that was a little dig at John and Yoko...there was 'You took your lucky break and broke it in two.' Other songs in this mold include McCartney's '3 Legs', George Harrison's 'Wah-Wah', and Lennon's 'How Do You Sleep?', the latter being an explicit response to 'Too Many People.' McCartney sings falsetto during part of the bridges. Hugh McCracken's guitar solo between the second bridge and third chorus is played in one piece. The second solo after the final bridge is accompanied by a drum stick on the side of a floor tom.

McCartney played the song 'Too Many People' while on tour in September 2005 at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston, dedicating the song to all the Wings fans in the audience.
