In 1975 Paul McCartney was asked about the song, and said it was “a plea for home cooking – it’s obscene”. Certainly the lyrics are a barely-disguised come-on, with eating used as a euphemism for sex.
‘Eat At Home’ was released as a single in several European countries in 1971, with ‘Smile Away’ on the b-side. Although not issued in the US or UK, it reached number seven in the Netherlands and eight in Norway.
Wings later performed ‘Eat At Home’ during their European tour.
