In a new interview while on tour in Australia, Paul said this about Jet .
http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/.....ws/9230828

"[Jet is] a little bit about the experiences I’d had in marrying Linda. Her dad was a little old fashioned and I thought I was a little bit intimidated as a lot of young guys can be meeting the father figure... Anyway, the song starts to be about the sergeant major and it was basically my experience roughly translated.

"I never do a song with the actual words that actually happen because then that’s like a news story. '[singing] Oh Linda, I was going to see your Dad and he was intimidating.' A bit boring. So I mask it and mould it into a song, something you can sing reasonably."

That’s always the way i interpreted it, with the ecstatic “I though you was a lady suffragette!” mocking the uptight parents.

I vaguely recall that "Jet " was partly about Paul's dog which he named "Jet ".
