Shamrock Womlbs said
It was a follow up to 'I Don't Want To Spoil The Party' called 'I don't want to pee the carpet'... it was so damn good a song that Paul never allowed it to be released.

What did Paul do to not allow the song to be released?  

Martha's innovative track "I Don't Want To Pee The Carpet" and its potential b-side "But I Kinda Want To Soil The Carpet" were soiled by Paul in a fit of jealousy.  Upon hearing the masterpieces, he dropped trou and defecated his steak and cornflakes breakfast all over the master tapes.  He then stole Martha's guitar riff for his autobiographical Wings number "Soily" in which he refers to himself as "the cat in satin trousers" and "breed controller," considered a thinly veiled threat to his loyal dog.

After thumb war & learning to play Parcheesi, what was Ringo's third favorite activity during the Long, Long, Long and drawn out Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band recording sessions?

It was about a man that's sad and lonely and all he has to do is act naturally and go to the opera and say to everybody "A Hard Day's Night tonight, right?. Goodnight!"

Where were they planning to make their last concert ever and why was it cancelled?

They were going to be the headline act at Woodstock, but they realised a week before that they couldn't be bothered. They ended up writing a song about the experience...

 

Which band did they choose to replace them at Woodstock?

Bob Dylan, because Bob Dylan has enough coolness for a whole band.

During this collab, Dylan and Yoko both sang backup on an already released Beatles single, what was Paul's reaction when he returned to the studio and saw this going on?

He was meeting new people. 

Ringo once famously decided he wanted to write a No. 1 hit. Where did it chart?

It peaked at #2 and stayed there for 6 months in 1989, it was prevented from reaching #1 by Micheal Jackson's song Fat, some say had he not named the song It that it would've placed the song at #1.

Why did he call the song It?

It was a writing exercise of a song: 32 lines of equal syllables, all ending with a rhyme for "it", including "quit", "twit", "hit", and, inevitably, "shit".

What are the lyrics to one (or more!) of the verses? (There is no chorus)

Yoko. She was one of the Harlem Globetrotters before they became fluxus.

In the Beatley adaptation of The Lord of the rings what was Yoko going to play?

John was annoyed that Alex wouldn't stop posting that stupid fake "Happiness..." quote every Monday, and attributing it to "My friend John Lennon, who definitely said this, and is definitely my friend (he really loves that blinking light box I made him!)".

Why was Paul arrested in Japan in 1980?

He was caught in the weeds, according to this translated Japanese article I read.

Because they have no particular place to go.

What previously unreleased song was going to be released in Anthology Vol. 34 . Who vetoed it? Why?
