John Lennon felt The Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine” was Paul McCartney’s “baby.” Despite this, he said another 1960s rock star helped Paul write the lyrics. In a book, Paul discussed the rock star’s role in creating the song.

According to the book All We Are Saying: The Last Major Interview with John Lennon and Yoko Ono, John discussed the origin of many Beatles songs in a 1980 interview. At one point, he discussed “Yellow Submarine.” “‘Yellow Submarine’ is Paul’s baby,” he said.

John recalled another rock star helped Paul write the song. “Donovan helped with the lyrics,” he said. “I helped with the lyrics, too. We virtually made the track come alive in the studio, but based on Paul’s inspiration.”

In the 1997 book Paul McCartney: Many Years From Now. Paul discussed Donovan’s role in writing the track. “He played one about a yellow submarine,” Paul remembered. “He said he was missing a line and would I fill it in.”

Paul then came up with a famous line from the track. “I left the room and returned with this: ‘Sky of blue and sea of green in our yellow submarine,'” Paul recalled. “It was nothing really, but he liked it and it stayed in.”

In addition, Paul discussed how John helped craft “Yellow Submarine.” “I think John helped out; the lyrics get more and more obscure as it goes on but the chorus, melody and verses are mine,” he said.

Paul also revealed Ringo Starr added a joke to the track. “There were funny little grammatical jokes we used to play,” he said. “It should have been ‘Everyone of us has all he needs’ but Ringo turned it into ‘everyone of us has all we need.’ So that became the lyric. It’s wrong, but it’s great. We used to love that.”
