The Beatles Two Of Us

Paul McCartney claimed for years that this song was about him and his future wife Linda Eastman, whom he married six weeks after the song recording. In a statement she left for Steve Turner’s A Hard Day’s Write she didn’t seem to have any doubt about it:

It’s about us. We just pulled off in a wood somewhere and parked the car. I went off walking while Paul sat in the car and started writing. He also mentions the postcards because we used to send a lot of postcards to each other.

Nevertheless, the song’s wistful, nostalgic lyrics seem to imply to many Beatles fans that it might be about the times him and his buddy John Lennon shared over the years, especially given the mock-skiffle sound of the song that harkens back to the band’s early years, not to mention they recorded the vocals singing into the same microphone, like they used to in the old days.

Lyrics

[Intro: John Lennon]
I Dig a Pygmy by Charles Hawtrey and the Deaf Aids
Phase one, in which Doris gets her oats

[Verse 1: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
Two of us riding nowhere, spending someone’s
Hard earned pay
You and me Sunday driving, not arriving
On our way back home

[Chorus: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
We’re on our way home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home

[Verse 2: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
Two of us sending postcards, writing letters
On my wall
You and me burning matches, lifting latches
On our way back home

[Chorus: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
We’re on our way home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home

[Bridge: Paul McCartney]
You and I have memories
Longer than the road that stretches out ahead

[Verse 3: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
Two of us wearing raincoats, standing solo
In the sun
You and me chasing paper, getting nowhere
On our way back home

[Chorus: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
We’re on our way home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home

[Bridge: Paul McCartney]
You and I have memories
Longer than the road that stretches out ahead

[Verse 4: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
Two of us wearing raincoats, standing solo
In the sun
You and me chasing paper, getting nowhere
On our way back home

[Chorus: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
We’re on our way home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home

[Outro]
We’re going home
Better believe it
Goodbye
