‘Everybody’s Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey’ was just a nice little line that I made into a song,” said John. “It was about me and Yoko. Everybody seemed to be paranoid except for us two, who were in the glow of love. Everything is clear and open when you’re in love. Everybody was, sort of, tense around us. You know, ‘What is she doing here at the session? Why is she with him?’ All that sort of madness going on around us just because we happened to want to be together all the time.”

George suggested that the “everybody’s got something to hide” line was drawn from one of the Maharishi’s favourite teachings.

The whole song took an unbelievable thirty-two hours to make.
