There are several similar themes in Instant Karma ! and Sexy Sadie , for example:

You'll get yours yet - Sexy Sadie

Come and get your share - Instant Karma !

And also:

The greatest of them all - Sexy Sadie

Who in the world do you think you are, a super star? Well, right you are - Instant Karma !

I thought I had posted this one, but it isn't coming up with any of my searches. This makes me think Macca doesn't like to go to funerals. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Eleanor Rigby

Father Mckenzie, wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave,
No one was saved.

Band On The Run

Well, the undertaker drew a heavy sigh 
Seeing no one else had come

EDIT: Found the comparison in another thread (from a post in 2015) https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....4/#p179523

What's up with George and the floor?

If Not for You

I couldn't even see the floor

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping

The Night Before

We said our goodbyes, ah, the night before
Love was in your eyes, ah, the night before
Now today I find you have changed your mind

Honey Don't

Well, sometimes I love you on a Saturday night
Sunday morning you don't look right
You been out painting the town

I'm Looking Through You

Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight

All Things Must Pass

Seems my love is up 
And has left you with no warning

Well Bob Dylan did write that first lyric...

Perhaps they bonded together over their shared obsession with floors.

Here's one that's been in the back of my mind for a while:

Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come - I Am The Walrus

Standing in the hall of the great cathedral, waiting for the transport to come - Venus And Mars (Reprise)

And surely this counts, they are two different songs after all...

A good friend of mine follows the stars, Venus And Mars are alright tonight - Venus And Mars

A good friend of mine studies the stars, Venus And Mars are alright tonight - Venus And Mars (Reprise)

No Reply and

I tried to telephone
They said you were not home

I nearly died

You Won't See Me

When I call you up, your line's engaged

And I will lose my mind
If You Won't See Me , You Won't See Me

Uptight's alright but if ya can't stand the heat
You better get back in the shade

Rain

When the sun shines they slip into the shade

That second one reminds me of the centaurs in Harry Potter
