American Pie lyrics sell for $1.2m


The original manuscript of Don McLean's American Pie has sold for 1.2 million dollars at a New York auction.

The 16-page draft had been expected to fetch as much as 1.5 million dollars at the Christie's sale.

McLean had hinted in February the original manuscript would reveal the song's lyrical meaning - which had always been kept a mystery.

The mystery has made American Pie one of the most debated songs in music history.
