On the eve of the release of the Beatle's greatest hits album , Sir Paul revealed to the British Sunday Mirror that his father didn't approve of his lyrics: "She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah..."
"Son, there are enough Americanisms around!
Couldn't you sing 'yes, yes, yes' just for once?"
To which son Paul replied: "You don't understand, Dad, it wouldn't work."
Sir Paul also talked about the dream he had about his mother, Mary, which later inspired his song Let It Be:
"She died when I was quite young and I had sort of gone to bed one night well crazy and sort of had a dream. Because she was my mother and her name was Mary, I said Mother Mary come to me. I know some people who are very religious and they love that song and I am sure that they are taking it as the Virgin Mary. "
