I don't know why, but this track sounds awful on Pandora. It's all vocals with the instruments seemingly muted.

The line should be :

And his CLINGING wife just doesn't understand.

Not his CLEANING wife.

The Beatles are MAGIC. Who else can take these simple lyrics (ex. PaperBack Writer) and make them something like this classic? NO ONE.

Great Song, one of those really upbeat songs that aren't too deep, aren't too trippy, just upbeat.
Report as inappropriate
I always loved how the "yeah"s in the second and third verse create the feel that someone is just putting up with the singer's claims about his book. And, that Paul wrote the song in response to John's book, "In His Own Write".

The harmonys are perfect & Paul ROCKS the BASS!
