Translation of Joe Cocker Woodstock Performance

Finally, after 40 years, someone has opened the vault and revealed
the answer to a question that has clawed at our brains since the
1969 Woodstock album was released:

What the hell were the lyrics to Joe Cocker's version of 'A Little
Help From My Friends'?

He was so wigged-out and loopy on a multitude of drugs, no one has
been able to understand his garbled, mush-mouth version......until now!

Click link below for the lyrics... FINALLY IT'S CRYSTAL CLEAR!

Joe Cocker

Okay, I admit this was a (little) before my time, but Joe Cocker was a familiar voice in the household when I was growing up. I still LOLed at this.
