Ahhh Girl quoted herself
From Getting Better

"I used to get mad at my school
The teachers who taught me weren't cool
You're holding me down, turning me round
Filling me up with your rules."

from Mccartney's Feet In the Clouds

"Teacher said
I had my head in the clouds
They directed
I suspected
Disconnected
Had it my way."  

Then she added

Throw in this from Working Class Hero

"They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate if you're clever and despise a fool
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules"

and you have a potent anti-school diatribe going on.  

Silly Girl excitedly added
I was listening to Brainwashed last night, and lo! what did I behold but, in the titular track, the lines 

Brainwashed in our childhood
Brainwashed by the school
Brainwashed by our teachers
And brainwashed by all their rules

George hated school a-hard-days-night-paul-7 

@Ahhh Girl @Into the Sky with Diamonds 

Of course, Ringo was the one with the least schooling.

Snookeroo
"I broke all the rules when i went to school,
But the teacher's couldn't pin me down."

Back in the Sunshine Again (Paul solo)

Here we are
Back in the sunshine again
No more worries
And no more pain

We're leaving behind
All our troubles and strife
And that's the way it's gonna' be
For the rest of my life

Can be paired up with theme-wise with Here Comes The Sun .  

Can also be paired up with Good Day Sunshine , and the music is kind of opposite too, lots of minor chords, sad-sounding really.

Every Night by Paul has a little part in it that sounds like part of You Never Give Me Your Money .

I noticed that long ago; as a matter of fact, every time I'd sing 'Every Night ', Silly Mum (who knows one and not the other) would commence to walk around humming YNGMYM for the rest of the day. ahdn_paul_01

Fixing A Hole
1. where the rain gets in
2. in the ocean (Glass Onion )

Drive My Car - the girl wants to be "a star on the screen"
Honey Pie - "You became a legend of the silver screen"

Blue Jay Way & Paul's Great Day both have extended sections of the phrase "be long".

A simple one. The whole idea of the Get Back project.
Two of Us - "On our way back home"
Get Back - "Get back to where you once belonged"

Two of Us - "On our way back home"
Get Back - "Get back to where you once belonged"  

On top of that, Get Up And Go(The Rutles parody of Get Back ) has the line "Get up and go back home" in the chorus, which further connects that bit from Two Of Us .

One I noticed long ago and posted about somewhere: The Night Before and Yesterday . So, so, similar. 

Both songs are expressions of regret for a relationship gone wrong, wherein the singer takes solace in remembering when everything was right. 

Which sounds awfully like a precursor to the nostalgic 'When I was a boy, everything was right' songs that they'd soon write.

Hmmm....  ahdn_george_01

Two mentions of missing trains on the Let It Be album--

From I've Got A Feeling
Oh please believe me, I'd hate to miss the train
Oh yeah, oh yeah.

From One After 909
I got my bag, run to the station
Railman says you've got the the wrong location

******

This line from For You Blue "I loved you from the moment I saw you" pairs well with the theme of I've Just Seen A Face .

Upon first hearing the 'Let It Be ' album (in a weird running order) that was the line of 'For You Bue' that captured me. To this day I still think

I've loved you from the moment I saw you
You looked at me that's all you had to do 

is one of the most beautiful lines ever written.

London Town
People pass me by on my imaginary street
**Ordinary people** it's impossible to meet
Holding conversations that are always incomplete

How Many People (on Flowers In The Dirt )
I want to see **ordinary people** living peacefully.

And if @Into the Sky with Diamonds is looking for more songs that mention ordinary people: http://www.lyrics.com/lyrics/o.....y%20people

I just remembered this one so I will bring it over here.

In the song In Liverpool, Ringo sings: "There were places we could hide in our mind"

It took me back to There's a Place: "There, there's a place, Where I can go...And it's my mind"

I often want to escape out of mind. It is nice to know The Beatles, at least at some points in their lives, liked to escape into theirs. I bet it is really nice inside their minds.

----

This one is a stretch, but it just keeps twirling around in the back of my mind.

In Ringo's song English Garden, he sings: "Buttercups grow, high at the towers." Since buttercups are yellow and green...

It makes me think of these lines from Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds : "Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head."

And there is the word tower(ing).

Re: the songs about school

In the song In Liverpool, Ringo sings: "But we should be going to school, but anyway."

Dunno if this has been mentioned as I didn't bother scrolling through 5 pages to check.

From I've Just Seen A Face ;

Had it been another day
I might have looked the other way
And I'd have never been aware.

And from If I Needed Someone ;

Had you come some other day
Then it might not have been like this
But you see now I'm too much in love

Very similar lines. (I thought there was another one like the above in Got To Get You Into My Life , but I was mistaken.)

Was listening to Walls And Bridges while driving to the airport. Going Down On Love has "Nothing doin' nowhere". It made me think of the line "Everybody knows there's nothing doing" from Good Morning Good Morning .
