Formal structure of  "Mean Mr. Mustard":
Verse 1 0:02-0:35
Verse 2 0:35-0:59 quadruple meter
End of verse/trans 0:59-1:06 triple meter
Comments: "Mean Mr. Mustard" consists of two verses, most of which are identical except for different lyrics, but the endings of which are very different. The first verse retains a quadruple meter throughout, but the second changes into triple meter at the very end.
