In case it's unclear, the quote marks around the names is simply a way of distinguishing the Lennon and the [=McCartney=] voice in the song, from the actual JohnLennon and PaulMcCartney.

This theory may seem far fetched, but John Lennon did admit that parts of the song were about him rather than PaulMcCartney...

* Notice that the cartoon "Beatle" on the cover of ''A Collection of Beatles Oldies'' is in the same position as MichaelJackson on the cover of ''Thriller'' on which Paul is a guest star.

A mysterious man by the name of William Shears Campbell saw how lucrative Music/TheBeatles were and decided that he needed a bit of the action. To do this, he ensured that an "accident" would befall Paqul. Knowing that the Beatles were arguing more and more, he waited for a session where Paul would become angry enough to storm out, and then cut the brakes on his car. He succeeded in killing Paul. Then he waited for the right opportunity to present an idea to the grief-stricken Beatles, manager Brian Epstein, and EMI: he bore an impeccable likeness to Paul and had musical skills, and so he roped them into the charade of his becoming Paul. Billy Campbell was a megalomaniac, and so he couldn't help but gloat about more-or-less taking over the Beatles; thus, he started to plant clues in the albums that indicated Paul was dead. He also figured that if he did this, the [[EpilepticTrees Conspiracy Theory]] would sound [[RefugeInAudacity so patently stupid, it wouldn't be taken seriously]] in the long run. His plan worked, but he developed a GambitRoulette to seize full control. He made sure things got worse for the Beatles until he could effectively disband them. He couldn't let Brian Epstein stand in his way, so he made sure Epstein had a drug overdose. While Billy waited for his time to come, John Lennon began to feel guilt for covering up Paul's death; for this reason, Billy Campbell arrangqed to have Lennon assassinated. Campbell didn't have the foresight for handling MichaelJackson, though. Campbell never expected Jackson to actually ''take'' that advice to buy the publishing rights to the Beatles' catalogue, which deprived Campbell of its money. Incensed, Campbell started a subtle and manipulative campaign to discredit and destroy Michael Jackson's life. Free of the people who stood in his way, knowing that George Harrison's health was slowly declining, and knowing that Ringo wouldn't say anything, he decided to ride the Beatles train for as much as he could, reaping as much money as he could, knowing that one day he will be the only one standing.

John Lennon is definetively in an ever-changing state, while John Entwistle constantly tries to affirm an identity.
Paul McCartney sings about love in a more superficial way than Pete Townshed, really.

The opening is a depiction of George Harrison, a "holy roller" with "Hair down to his knees." He came "groovin' up slowly": he started out as "just" a guitarist, but eventually caught up with Lennon-McCartney's songwriting skills. For "joo-joo eyeball", there was the problem of fans throwing jelly babies (and jelly beans!) at him, and his fear of getting hit in the eye with one. In January, he had walked out on the group, and so he's "a joker-he just do what he please."

** Paul "wear no shoeshine": he's the barefoot one on the Abbey Road cover and of all of them he seemed to prefer sandals. "Monkey finger" might refer to his talent with the bass guitar, which is plucked rather than strummed (John admired Paul's skill with the bass). "I know you, you know me" seems to be a phrase that John and Paul would say when they were arguing, which Paul mentions in the (solo) song "Here Today." "One thing I can tell you is you got to be free" may have been John speaking ''to'' Paul, telling him to let the Beatles go ("Let It Be") and move on.
** Ringo might have been the "early warning" of the group's disintegration when he quit during the ''White Album'' sessions. Or it could be about him being friends with the Beatles before joining properly. He's the "mojo filter" in that he tied three very creative people together - John once called him "the heart". "One and one and one is three" could refer to him keeping the beat, and to his "Ringoisms". He's "hard to see" because he's both short and hidden behind his drumkit.
