JOHN 1980: 'Just my attempt at writing one of those three-part harmony Smokey Robinson songs.
Nothing in the lyrics… just a sound and a harmony.
There was a period when I thought I didn't write melodies… that Paul wrote those and I just wrote straight, shouting rock 'n roll.
But of course, when I think of some of my own songs – 'In My Life,' or some of the early stuff – 'This Boy,' I was writing melody with the best of them.'PAUL 1988: 'Fabulous. And we just loved singing that three-part too.
We'd learned that from: (sings) 'To know know know her is to love love love her…' We learned that in my dad's house in Liverpool.'
That boy took my love away
Though he'll regret it someday
But this boy wants you back againThat boy isn't good for you
Though he may want you too
This boy wants you back againOh, and this boy would be happy
Just to love you, but oh my
That boy won't be happy
Till he's seen you cryThis boy wouldn't mind the pain
Would always feel the same
If this boy gets you back againThis boy
This boy [fade out]
