It's a device they'd often use - usually around a solo (eg Boys) - in this case it heightens he tension of the middle instrumental section, the hurried handclaps resolving that tension before giving us the final verse.

I heard Ringo interviewed a while back on BBC's Steve Wright show - he was asked if he had one word of advice for a young drummer starting out. "Speed-up during the solo" was the reply.

Precious words drift away from their meanings 

And the sun melts the chill from our lives... 

--George Harrison, 'This Is Love

Sounds familiar, doesn't it? 

I am currently in the process of gathering data to the effect that George was slightly obsessed with sunshine, rain, and the weather in general. 

Half of what I say is meaningless... but I say it just to fill the other half with Beatlerubbish.

I just thought of something while re-tuning my guitar to play along with this song (which is really sharp, it's not really in the key of A at all). Could it be that they sped the tapes up? Because it sounds like it could be-- it's higher-pitched and really fast. Though it hasn't quite the 'chipmunk effect' that When I'm Sixty-Four or even Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da had. 

Just wondered... I'd never seen anything about it so perhaps it was played in B-flat.
