All these years, I thought the countdown that comes near the end of this song was Paul, but a You Tube that isolated all the voices indicates quite clearly it was Linda. 

Also, Linda shouts out four times -- "a-ONE!... a-TWO!...a-THREE!...a-FOUR!" -- but all these years I thought only the first time it was following numerical order, but the subsequent times it was comically jumbling up the order.

The following people thank Pineapple Records for this post:

It's actually called Helen Wheels.

Interesting listen, that, I've never clearly understood what he says till now.

@Pineapple Records, do you want the title kept or amended?

P.S.:  An indication that this isolated track video is NOT the final cut is at about 3:02 into it, right after Paul says "Say bye-bye" and everybody answers "BYE BYE" but simultaneous with the first "BYE" you can hear Linda say something -- which you CANNOT hear on the final track.  So it seems that this isolated track video represents a rehearsal that wasn't the absolute final version.  Now I'm wondering if Linda really did say that 1-2-3-4 countdown after all...
