The references in Paul's Boutique

This site has pulled apart Paul's Boutique by The Beastie Boys and listed all the references and samples.

""Like Sam the butcher, bringing Alice the meat" - two characters from The Brady Bunch, Sam was Alice's boyfriend.

"Ben Franklin with the kite gettin' over with the key" - a reference to his famous experiment which established the first link between lightning and electricity.

"My mind is kinda flowing like an oil projector" - an oil projector is a lighting effect, producing fluid colored blobs, used mainly in the '60s for psychedelic rock shows and movies."
