This song is about Paul McCartney's schooldays. He told the Mail on Sunday
May 12, 2008 about it: "Because of the retrospective mood of this medley, it then goes back to school and teachers. I had a real motley bunch of teachers at the Liverpool Institute High School for Boys. Some of them were complete maniacs. Whereas I wrote about golden summers in 'You Tell Me
,' school was very dark and gloomy. The building itself wasn't the lightest of places - it was built in 1825. This seemed to affect the attitude of the teachers. They were a dark bunch of people. So the song is like a therapy session for me."
