John Lennon once said this was the only song he wrote that he truly hated. Lennon told British journalist Ray Connolly: "It's the most embarrassing song I ever wrote. Everything rhymed. Disgusting lyrics. Even then I was so ashamed of the lyrics, I could hardly sing them. That was one song I really wished I'd never written."
An instrumental version was recorded by George Martin and his orchestra. Martin was The Beatles producer.
The original title was "That's a Nice Hat (Cap)."
George Harrison used a tone pedal on this track to produce an unusual guitar sound.
