Gallagher 'clueless' about lyrics

Liam Gallagher says he's not good with words
Liam Gallagher says he's not good with words

Liam Gallagher has admitted he has no idea what his own lyrics mean.

The former Oasis frontman is about to launch a new career with his band Beady Eye with his songwriting coming to the fore for the first time.

But in an interview with the March edition of Mojo magazine, he said: "I don't know what any of my tunes are about, they're just out there."

Liam went on: "I'm not good with words. I just say the first thing that comes into my head."

His brother Noel took charge of the lyrics for the vast majority of Oasis tracks but quit the band in 2009, although Liam did contribute some tracks such as Little James and Songbird.

The remaining members of the group are carrying on under the name of Beady Eye, with a debut album Different Gear, Still Speeding due for release next month.

Asked what new song Wigwam is about, he admits: "F*** knows, I haven't got a clue, man.

"That's words, that's all, that I think sort of go together. There's a bit of something... people might see it as being a bit of beating up someone on the booze a bit.

"But it's nothing to do with a wigwam. Or as some Japanese girl said the other day 'what is it about, a man with a wig?'. I don't know."
