Ferris Bueller's Day Off - The Walrus
at the very beginning of the movie, Ferris quotes John Lennon and then says, "After all he was the walrus." But actually, in a Beatles song, John says, "The walrus was Paul." Paul McCartney was the walrus, not John Lennon.

John Lennon sang "I am the Walrus" in 1967. It's true that in the following year he sang 'The walrus was Paul' in the song "Glass Onion", written especially to confuse critics. However, in 1971, in the song "God", Lennon sings "Yesterday I was the walrus". So it was him all along.

Ferris could also have been referring to the fact that it was John who sang 'I Am The Walrus'.

Paul was never the walrus. The song "glass onion" in which john says "the walrus was paul" was a nonsense song. That line was included to confuse fans who over analyse their music. The walrus was john lennon. He sung and wrong "i am the walrus", and more importantly, on the album cover for "magical mystery tour" (and in the movie), the walrus was john lennon. Paul was NEVER the walrus; john only jokingly reffered to him as it

John Lennon did sing about Paul being the Walrus. But I've read Paul McCartney saying that John wore the costume in the filming of Magical Mystery Tour, and he wore it for the cover photograph. So they were BOTH the walrus! :)

Actually, John originally wrote and sang the song "I Am the Walrus" on the Magical Mystery Tour album. A year later he sang a song called "Glass Onion" in which he says the walrus was Paul. Ferris is no doubt quoting from the song "I Am the Walrus".

Yes ,John was the walrus...But in the song 'God' he sings 'Yesterday I was the dreamweaver-but now I'm reborn-I was the walrus-but now I am John'. Just a minor correction on the song lyrics. And everyone is right about the lyrics to 'Glass Onion' , it was just a sendup to make fun of the people who were looking for clues to Paul's 'death'.

It could also have been because Ferris is a teenager and doesn't necessarily know everything. Part of the extra realism incorporated by the film's makers.
