  • Bip bop, bip bip bop
    Bip bop, bip bip band

    Dig your bottom dollar
    put it in your hand

    Try to hang out
    underneath the stand

    Put your hands together
    gonna see a band

    Treat me like a good boy
    Treat me like a man

    Take me hair and curlers
    But treat me like a man Writer/s: PAUL MCCARTNEY

  • Williamnhill from MississippiI have always thought of this song as one for children. I love it and the video of Paul's son running around and the sheer playfulness of the video shows just how normal a genius like Paul McCartney really is. Blues-lite?? Sure, but you have to admit, it is a catchy little tune... and my grandsons love it!!
  • Marie from CaliforniaI love this song to pieces, honestly. I hope Paul actually does, too, and he's just saying uncle for the press when he puts it down. That jaunty guitar, Linda's hilarious "there you go" bit, what I suspect is one of his daughters humming along, his giggling at the end. It's just delightful.
  • Giordano from ItalyI've always found this song a little jewel. it's a little joyful mantra, and a lot of times, returning from job, I sang in duet with Paul this pretty little Song. I completely agree with Mr. Horn!
