What the Beatles said about “What Goes On”
RINGO 1966: "I contributed about five words to "What Goes On.’ (laughs) And I haven’t done a thing since!"
JOHN 1972: "A very early song of mine. Ringo and Paul wrote a new middle-eight together when we recorded it."
JOHN 1980: "That was an early Lennon, written before the Beatles when we were the Quarrymen or something like that. And resurrected with a middle-eight thrown in, probably with Paul’s help, to give Ringo a song… and also to use the bits, because I never liked to waste anything."
