Originally performed on the Jimmy Fallon Show December 10, 2010, McCartney and Fallon’s duet has been included on Fallon’s new album “Blow Your Pants Off.”
One You Tube clip noted:
Fans will be aware that Paul woke up with the melody for ‘Yesterday’ in his head having dreamt it in his sleep. Whilst working on the lyrics for the track he used ‘Scrambled Eggs / Oh, my baby how I love your legs’ until he came up with the words we now all know and love. Paul and Jimmy build on these original lyrics in their duet.
Another You Tube clip quoted Lennon:
“The song was around for months and months before we finally completed it. Every time we got together to write songs for a recording session, this one would come up. We almost had it finished. Paul wrote nearly all of it, but we just couldn’t find the right title. We called it ‘Scrambled Eggs’ and it became a joke between us. We made up our minds that only a one-word title would suit, we just couldn’t find the right one. Then one morning Paul woke up and the song and the title were both there, completed. I was sorry in a way, we’d had so many laughs about it.”
