JOHN 1972: 'Me.
But Paul helped me on the lyric.'GEORGE 1980: 'I had bought, earlier, a crummy sitar in London… and played the 'Norwegian Wood' bit.'JOHN 1980: ''Norwegian Wood' is my song completely.
It was about an affair I was having.
I was very careful and paranoid because I didn't want my wife, Cyn, to know that there really was something going on outside of the household.
I'd always had some kind of affairs going on, so I was trying to be sophisticated in writing about an affair… but in such a smoke-screen way that you couldn't tell.
But I can't remember any specific woman it had to do with.'PAUL 1985: 'It was me who decided in 'Norwegian Wood' that the house should burn down… not that it's any big deal.'
I once had a girl
Or should I say
She once had meShe showed me her room
Isn't it good
Norwegian woodShe asked me to stay
And she told me to sit anywhere
So I looked around
And I noticed there wasn't a chairI sat on a rug
Biding my time
Drinking her wineWe talked until two
And then she said
"It's time for bed"She told me she worked in the morning
And started to laugh
I told her I didn't
And crawled off to sleep in the bathAnd when I awoke
I was alone
This bird had flownSo I lit a fire
Isn't it good
