"You Tell Me" as written by and Paul Mccartney....
A 1, 2, 3 ...

When was that summer when the skies were blue?
The bright red cardinal flew down from his tree?
You tell me

When was that summer when it never rained?
The air was buzzin' with the sweet old honeybee
Let's see
You tell me

Were we there?
Was it real?
Is it truly how I feel?
Maybe
You tell me

Were we there?
Is it true?
Was I really there with you?
Let's see
You tell me

When was that summer of a dozen words?
The butterflies and hummingbirds flew free
Let's see
You tell me

Let's see
You tell me

    General Commentnote Paul expressing his love for animals (and, of course, animal rights) by referencing to a variety of creatures, such as "cardinals," "honeybee[s]," "butterflies," and even the rare and mysterious "hummingbirds."
