What the Beatles said about “Magical Mystery Tour”

JOHN 1972: "Paul wrote it. I helped with some of the lyric."

JOHN 1980: "Paul’s song. Maybe I did part of it, but it was his concept."

PAUL circa-1994: "’Magical Mystery Tour’ was co-written by John and I, very much in our fairground period. One of our great inspirations was always the barker: ‘Roll up! Roll up!’ The promise of something– the newspaper ad that says ‘guaranteed not to crack,’ the ‘high class’ butcher, ‘satisfaction guaranteed’ from Sgt. Pepper… You’ll find that pervades alot of my songs. If you look at all the Lennon/McCartney things, it’s a thing we do alot."
