And Your Bird Can Sing

The Beatles facts for "And Your Bird Can Sing" are as follows:  The song is a Lennon composition included on the Revolver album.  Lennon said that it was "Another one of my throwaways."  He also said it was "Another horror."  Harrison, however, liked the song, noting that he and McCartney "played in harmony--quite a complicated little line that goes right through the middle eight."

A take of the song is featured on Beatles Anthology 2 in which Lennon and McCartney cannot make it through the piece because of their own laughter.  The working title of the song was "You Don't Get Me."

The song was recorded at Abby Road on April 20, 1966.  Harrison played lead guitar, Lennon rhythm, McCartney bass, and Starr drums and tambourine.  Lennon sings lead vocal, and McCartney sings harmony.
