''The song was around for months and months before we finally completed it. Every time we got together to write songs for a recording session, this one would come up. We almost had it finished. Paul wrote nearly all of it, but we just couldn't find the right title. We called it 'Scrambled Eggs' and it became a joke between us. We made up our minds that only a one-word title would suit, we just couldn't find the right one.'' - John Lennon
''I didn't think the death of my mother affected me musically. People were saying ''The lyrics of that song ''Why she had to go? I don't know, she wouldn't say'' they said 'That's your mom!'. I said 'I don't know! I certainly didn't mean it to be. But it could be.'' - Paul McCartney
