A “Helter Skelter Lyrics” is an amusement park ride with a slide built in a spiral around a high tower (it’s also British slang, meaning “in disorderly haste or confusion”)

Paul McCartney – who penned the song – used the song as a response to critics who accused him of writing too many ballads. The proto-heavy metal musical backing emerged as Paul saw Pete Townshend saying The Who’s “I Can See for Miles” was “the raunchiest, loudest, most ridiculous rock and roll record you’ve ever heard”, so he decided to up the ante, while also “using the symbol of a helter-skelter as a ride from the top to the bottom; the rise and fall of the Roman Empire – and this was the fall, the demise.”

1. Helter Skelter Lyrics:

  • When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
  • Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
  • Till I get to the bottom and I see you again
  • Do, don’t you want me to love you
  • I’m coming down fast but I’m miles above you
  • Tell me, tell me, tell me, come on tell me the answer
  • Well, you may be a lover but you ain’t no dancer
  • Helter skelter, helter skelter
  • Helter skelter
  • Will you, won’t you want me to make you
  • I’m coming down fast but don’t let me break you
  • Tell me, tell me, tell me the answer
  • You may be a lover but you ain’t no dancer
  • Look out
  • Helter skelter, helter skelter
  • Helter skelter
  • Look out, ’cause here she comes
  • When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
  • And I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
  • And I get to the bottom and I see you again, yeah, yeah
  • Well do you, don’t you want me to make you
  • I’m coming down fast but don’t let me break you
  • Tell me, tell me, tell me your answer
  • You may be a lover but you ain’t no dancer
  • Look out
  • Helter skelter, helter skelter
  • Helter skelter
  • Look out, helter skelter
  • She’s coming down fast
  • Yes, she is
  • Yes, she is
  • Coming down fast
