I'll agree with Gary about uncomfortable.

Underrated tune. I love how at the "i used to be cruel to my woman" part, the instruments change from basic guitar, bass and drums to tambura and bongos.

One of the best on the album. I love the staccato guitars!

Another classic moment. Paul McCartney's apparent optimism and positivity of a new era, of new attitudes and outlooks is actually quite a dark track. References to wife beating is one of the most uncomfortable set of lyrics in the whole of the Beatles Canon. McCartney tells us though, this is a changed man, thank God, but it's still an odd moment, especially at the height of the summer of love. Maybe McCartney's telling us that it will all start 'getting better' if we all do our bit. Anyway, it's a great track, and as on, she's leaving home, John Lennon's ironic and sardonic backing vocals are a brilliant foil for McCartney's upbeat(at least for most of the time) lyrics.
