Described enigmatgically by John Lennon as “a sort of teenage social-comment song,” this sixth track on The BeatlesWhite Album featured some crazed vocals from the band, including Fish’s hilarious “all the children sing” line. The 10/31/94 version is the band’s only performance of The Beatles’ bizarre original.
