John Lennon, arsonist?

Well of course not. But, did you know that happy little ditty 'Norwegian Wood' is about? It's about torching a girl's place, that's what! Let's take a look. We start when our protagonist, we'll call him John, hooks up with a girl and goes home with her
'She showed me her room, isn't it good, Norweigan Wood. She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere.
So at this point he is sure is going to score. We talked until two, and then she said, it's time for bed.
However, our hero John does not end up in her bed. Instead
I went off to sleep in the bath"

Then it gets worse, when we wakes up, she is long gone "and, when I awoke I was alone, this bird has flown".

So what does our boy Johnny do? Torches the place! So I lit a fire, isn't it good, Norweigan Wood. Yeah, her prized furniture that she bragged about to him... burned baby.
