I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping… to something not about housework.

I look at the floor and I see a coin worth keeping

I look at the door and I notice it's creaking

I look at Yoko Ono and I hear she is shrieking (singing)

I watch politics and I see the public speaking

I don't have any lyrics in mind to replace it with, but the "Make love all day long, make love singing songs" in Love You To seems difficult and impractical, not to mention exhausting. a-hard-days-night-george-10

"She Came In Through The Bathroom Window/Protected by a silver spoon/But now she sucks her thumb and wonders/By the banks of her own lagoon"

Seriously, those lines have "Ah, they'll do" written all over them. I know Beatles songs are so familiar nowadays that it can be hard to take a step back, but McCartney really was in first-draft mode.

She Came In Through The Bathroom Window,
Then slipped and fell into the loo.
And so she’s stuck inside my toilet,
Need to go – where am I to poo?

I remember hearing these same lyrics for the first time, and actually thinking to myself: "This is inferior songwriting." Up until this point, I had never really questioned the quality of anything the Beatles released. I liked some songs more than others, but even if it wasn't my cup of tea, I accepted that they were on a higher level than everyone else. But the "Bathroom Window" lyrics burst that bubble. The music was sublime; But lines like "She worked at fifteen clubs a day"… just sounded clunky to my ears. If you're gonna write impressionistic lyrics, you've got to put some effort into it, or it just sounds juvenile. And the Beatles had never sounded like that to me until this song.
