I have avoided certain songs for that reason in the past. But even after a good solid rest the familiarity is still so strong. It's something that can't be reduced.

  

I think with this song especially, the familiarity doesn't go away with time because the song is very straightforward.  It's even kind of sparse, in that it's not the kind of song you're going to be hearing new things every time you listen to it.  It's pretty simple, but obviously a great song. 

I've always liked the encouraging aspects of the lyrics.  This is one of those songs I think about as an example that Paul can write very good lyrics.  Even though (as I said previously) I think the "movement you need is on your shoulder" is kind of an awkward way to put it.

I have a memory of one early version of the lyrics having the "nah nah nah" parts as "banana" (*ba-nah-nah-nah), is that delusional madness or is that correct? If so, it turns it into a joke related to the creation of Apple, which was at the same time, and would be pretty cool.

I believe it was reported in 'The Beatles Book Monthly' but all my copies are boxed in the loft and I'm not risking falling thru with no one here.
