Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey

This Lennon number, according to the author, was about his relationship with Yoko Ono and how those around them seemed to be paranoid. Lennon said he and Yoko were simply surrounded by the glowing love for one another and had nothing to hide from anyone. Fats Domino did a cover version that Lennon liked very much.

The song, issued on the White Album, was recorded at Abbey Road Studios on June 27, 1968, with overdubs added in July.

Lennon plays lead guitar and sings the lead vocal; McCartney plays bass and sings backing vocal; Harrison plays rhythm guitar and firebell; and Starr played drums.
