A few things that spring to mind from the lyrics are, "...when income tax was all we had." This could relate to George's song "Taxman." Also, "You've really got a hold on me," is a line taken from a Miracles song. The Beatles did a cover of it, and George wrote at least two tributes to Smokey Robinson. Finally, "still the life flows on and on," is very similar to the theme of "Within You Without You."

I haven't seen the video in a while, but I think I remember someone eating a green apple! I'm sure others will be able to chime in with some more references!

Well, I went ahead and watched the video! As AppleScruffJunior pointed out, a pedestrian walks by holding the John Lennon album Imagine, (which George played on!) and John's face can be seen on the back cover. Also, for a brief moment, George is dressed in his Sgt. Pepper costume.

I remember now that the green apple is eaten down to its core and discarded onto Ringo's timpani drum! The apple core definitely reminds me of the joke on the back cover of the original Extra Texture LP!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Interesting, I thought he wrote it specifically (Paul's 'Here Today', etc.). It's good how there's always something new to learn.

I think, while re-watching the video, he is wearing his jacket from the Help! album for a moment.
