Love the vocals by Paul and Linda on the choruses on this track.

For my liking there is a little too much filler or underworked material on 'McCartney' so its good to come across a track such as this when hearing the album thru. When I compiled my first solo Beatles cassette this along with 'Maybe I'm Amazed ' where automatic choices. Still get a kick out of the song. Nice lyrics too, especially 

"I used to ride on my fast city line,
Singing songs that i thought were mine alone, alone.
Now, let me lie with my love for the time
I am home, home, home."

A really warm sentiment on finding contentment and peace with a loved one during an unhappy time.

"I told you everything I could about me, Told you everything I could" ('Before Believing' - Emmylou Harris) 

"Don't make your love suffer insecurities; Trade the baggage of 'self' to set another one free" ('Paper Skin' - Kendall Payne)

Agreed on both points. I think you nailed it with underworked - some of the filler may not have been filler had it been worked on a little more. This is one of my favorite tracks on the album.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

Paul is often quite loose with his composing, and sometimes that means he gets underrated unfairly. Seems to have been the case with McCartney and McCartney II .

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.
