Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney
The Beatles song baby you're a rich man originally started as two songs one written by Paul and one by John.
Paul McCartney's song was the Baby you're a rich man chorus section about his manager Brian Epstein, who despite making a fortune off managing the Beatles was always moaning about money and complaining about things.
John Lennon contributed the beautiful people aspect of the Baby you're a rich man lyrics. The beautiful people were the free loving hippies, but as opposed to many hippies these were not the ones who were protesting about the problems of the world but the ones who saw everything as being good and beautiful.You may be interested in this article on calcium rich foods.
The beautiful people were mainly based in San Francisco; The city of love, and many saw the Beatles as being their spiritual leaders. George Harrison opposed this as he thought that they should follow their own hearts and not be led by anyone.
