Don't know if this has been brought up on this thread before, but here's something I've been thinking about since I listened to MMT the other day - from Strawberry Fields Forever :

It's getting hard to be someone but it all works out

Then, from All You Need Is Love :

Nothing you can do, but you can learn how to be you in time

The latter lyric could be a follow-up to the former lyric. Together, they have a message I think that is almost similar to the famous Oscar Wilde quote 'Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.' Maybe the line in All You Need Is Love was John and/or Paul deliberately referencing the one from SFF? Does anybody know about this?  

Wow, this is a damned good example. Well done.

Silly Love Songs: Love doesn't come in a minute
Sometimes it doesn't come at all
I only know that when I'm in it
It isn't silly, love isn't silly, love isn't silly at all

Listen To What The Man Says: Any time, any day
You can hear the people say
That love is blind
Well, I don't know but I say love is kind

 

There's similar-ish themes in that the rest of the world is sort of questioning love and Paul is saying "well I don't know about you but I happen to like it."

Wow I'm really obsessed with this thread a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Cocky or confident? You decide.

 

Let Me It Roll (Paul Solo)

I Want To Tell You that 
You're going to be mine

Her Majesty

Her Majesty ’s a pretty nice girl
Someday I'm going to make her mine, oh yeh,
someday I'm going to make her mine.

I Should Have Known Better

And when I ask you to be mine, you're gonna say you love me too.

I'll Get You

But I'll Get You in the end
Yes I will, I'll Get You in the end, oh yeah, oh yeah.

I’ll Get You and Imagine

Imagine I'm in love with you

I hear the lyric as two separate phrases. 

“Sweet little lass you are,

My Long Haired Lady” rather than

“sweet little lass, you are my long haired lady.”

Paperback Writer

It's based on a novel by a man named Lear

Heather ~Paul solo song (I encourage you to listen to this song if you haven't heard it before. The music is awesome. The few word he sings come in at the end of the song.)

 

And I will dance to a runcible tune

Runcible is a nonsensical word made up by Edward Lear. He used it as an adjective to describe a spoon.

The owl and the pussycat 'dined upon mince/and slices of quince/which they ate with a runcible spoon'. 

He calls a wall and a cat, among other things, "runcible" also.

Here are some opinions about the origin and meaning of the word.

https://www.theguardian.com/no.....56,00.html

Do you think Paul had a meaning in mind when he put that word in the song, or was it just a nonsensical word he threw in?
