She Could Steal But She Could Not Rob
Have you ever listened to a song and a set of lyrics sticks with you and you wondered what the writer meant? Well, ever since I heard the song She Came In Through The Bathroom Window from the Abbey Road album, I always wondered about the set of lyrics: "And though she tried her best to help me, she could steal but she could not rob". Now, what does that mean? I've been thinking about it for over a year now and what I think is obviously, its metaphoric. Maybe what Paul's implying (if Paul wrote it) was that the girl was materialistic because to steal, it means to take what you have in front of you and to rob would mean to take something behind your back. So she was all material and nothing on the inside? I'm not sure. Anyone got any ideas?
