Help !: "I do appreciate you being 'round"

And Your Bird Can Sing : "I'll be 'round, I'll be round"

Seems like Lennon was into being 'round in '65-'66. (So was Elvis in the 70s)

Really like Lennon's "Steel And Glass ." Somehow only discovered it a couple of years ago.

Paul's On The Way

Though I said some things to hurt you
Well it was only out of fear
Wouldn't want to see you crying

John's Jealous Guy

I was feeling insecure
You might not love me anymore
...
Oh I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I made you cry

I wonder if Paul's fear was also insecurity. Makes sense. Thoughts, anyone?

I'm thinking that while John gets jealous and vengeful, Paul gets wistful and nostalgic. But that is indeed "opposing"!

Perhaps in contrast to John's "Jealous Guy " we could put Paul's "For No One "

Well she looked at me
And I, I could see
That before too long
I'd fall in love with her

gets a makeover for 2018

I saw you flash a smile
That seemed to me to say
You wanted so much more
Than casual conversation

I swear I caught a look
Before you turned away
Now I don’t see the point
Resisting your temptation

Obvious why it's a recurring theme, though. It's...

Because the world is round.

From Paul's last album

I see the doctor coming down the street
I got no fever, but I'm feeling the heat
Oh boy, someone get me out of here

From Paul's current album

I lied to my doctor
But these days I don’t

Paul mentions bluebells in both That Was Me and Happy With You.

You'll find Paul mentioning Army boots in Junk and Confidante (where butterflies wear Army boots, LOL).

There's the mention of soldiers in Calico Skies.

Long live all of us crazy soldiers
Who were born under calico skies
May we never be called to handle
All the weapons of war we despise

John doesn't want to be a soldier. He he tells us that War is Over if we want it.

Lovely Rita looks a little like a military man.

The English Army had just won the war in A Day In The Life

Paul mentions Irish soldiers in Give Ireland Back to the Irish

What other army, war, or military-related lyrics can we come up with?

Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, perhaps.

Give Peace A Chance is obviously another anti-war song.

That's all I can think of.
