This is one of my favourite early Beatles tracks. I’d always assumed it was a John song, because he sings it, but it’s in The Lyrics, credited Paul McCartney and John Lennon .
Warning, you can’t unread this:
At the end of the section about this song Paul says “I think it’s fair to say there might be a bit of schoolboy humour hovering around the idea too.” I am cackling.
I’ll Get You , I’ll Get You in the end

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

Ha-ha, that reminds me of Paul’s explanation for the meaning of “4000 holes in Blackburn Lancashire”.
“They were referring to 4000 screaming girls filling up Albert Hall for a concert”.
