I genuinely believe Wings were better than The Who. I mean, The Who were great, no question, but apart from the standout songs, there's an awful lot of filler on their albums. Pete Townshend is not as consistently as good a songwriter as Paul McCartney. Their albums suffered for that.

Yeah McCartney is much more consistent songwriter with lyrics like..
Off to the flicks with the piddle in her nicks, to the fair with her hair
in curlers.
Their cousins didn't get all down to the pleasure dome
Their cousins didn't send their night in an aircraft hanger.
Memories . . .!


Townshend consistently good lyrics:
Ain't it funny how they're all Cleopatra
When you gaze into their past
When you find out about their birth signs
You realize there was no need to have asked

All the history of a soul in torment
Ingrained in a hand or a face
Ain't it funny how they all fire the pistol
At the wrong end of the race


yep, McCartney certainly is more consistent.
btw: you can't include his beatle days for the consistency thing...

Lyrics aren't everything. Otherwise Wild Thing you make my heart sing would never have made it out of the practise room.

For the record, I think the Spin It On lyrics are spot on. Inventive wordplay, grasping phrases at random, just like he uses "my salamander" in Getting Closer and the "breed controler born deceased" in Soily, I like how Macca sometimes reaches for the sky and pulls odd things from out of thin air - makes the song more interesting and stand out more. Kurt Cobain's another one who likes to use random strange imagery, that maybe he wasn't even sure what he was describing, but whatever it was it suits the song well. But then again, it's not everyone's cup-of-poetry.
