I had been dead keen on this song about a year ago, but had all but forgotten it since. I went back to it recently and can't get enough of it In fact, I would go so far as to nominate it as my favourite post-Beatles Paul song ever -- and that's a high honour, coming from someone who sucks at choosing favourites, especially from so vastly a discography (though I know I've scarcely scratched the surface of Paul's post-Beatles work).
Everything about it I just find so perfect: the production is quietly tasty, the harmonies are delicious, the lyric is as good as it gets. Another one for the 'Right, I'm not a Beatle anymore, I've grown up, so sod the world' playlist, but delivered so quietly, one doesn't mind that some people will, in fact, never know. Kind of sad, but as long as you and I know, it doesn't really matter if I'm wrong I'm right where I belong I'm right where I belong. After all, I'm only a person like you are, and who in the world can be right all the right time?
I even think the length is perfect -- it saves me from having to hit 'repeat' a couple times, as I would have to if it were a normal three or so minutes.
'Mamunia' sounds similar, and is in the same key.

@Beatlebug I can fully agree with you. Ever since I heard mmm talk about how good Wild Life actually was, I decided to go give it some more listens. I really enjoy this song, "I Am Your Singer," and "Tomorrow". I find that these three songs sound similar, and go so well together. A beautiful trinity of songs.

Paul's quiet little singing under the "ooh" section (from 4:05) is great to hear.
