What the Beatles said about “The Fool On The Hill”

JOHN 1980: "Now that’s Paul. Another good lyric. Shows he’s capable of writing complete songs."

PAUL circa-1994: "’Fool On The Hill’ was mine and I think I was writing about someone like the Maharishi. His detractors called him a fool. Because of his giggle he wasn’t taken too seriously… I was sitting at the piano at my father’s house in Liverpool hitting a D6 chord, and I made up ‘Fool On The Hill.’"
