Okay, before Paul performs Something on Good Evening, New York City, he says:

I went round to his house one day, and I said, you know, "I've been messing around on the ukulele" and I played him this song, that I''m gonna do for you now. I'm not sure he was very impressed but, I thought it was okay.

I've just never understood what he meant by this, because to me it sounds like he's trying to take credit for George's song. Unless I'm being stupid and there's actually a much nicer explanation. Any thoughts?

Or it could be after the song after 1969 and Paul went to see George when they were on friendly terms and played him a version of Something. Maybe that was another cause of disharmony between them, George thinking Paul was mocking him.

Well, Kelly, it's a bit like "Drive My Car"!

You have a great name for a helicopter - now you just need to go out and get it!
