Jump Back In The Alley

Jump back in the Alley: A couple of sites give this as being a reference to a Little Richard song Tutti Frutti, it isn't. The closest Little Richard song is Long Tall Sally and the phrase is 'Duck'd back in the alley". As an aside, if you tend to think in euphemisms, Long Tall Sally is possibly the rudest song ever. I'm inclined to think that Ian was indeed referring to a "jump" in an alley. Given his disability, I'm fairly sure jumping off the ground didn't make him cheerful, it was another use of the word 'jump'. So here is a picture of 4 lads who were very familiar with back alleys in their younger day and it's a cheerful fun picture, The Beatles.
