"That Was Me" as written by and Paul Mccartney....
That was me, at the scout camp, in the school play
Spade and bucket by the sea, that was me

That was me, playing conkers at the bus stop
On a blanket in the blue bells, that was me

The same me that stands here now
When I think that all this stuff
Can make a life that's pretty hard to take it in, that was me

Well that was me, royal iris, on the river
Mercy beat n' with the band, that was me

Yeah that was me, sweating cobwebs under contract
In the cellar, on TV, that was me

The same me that stands here now
If fate agreed that all of this
To make a lifetime, who am I to disagree, that was me

That was me, acappella at the alter
In the middle of the picture, that was me

That was me at the party, sweatin' cobwebs
In a cellar on TV, yeah that was me

The same me that stands here now
When I think that all this stuff
Can make a life that's pretty hard to take it in, that was me
That was me, yeah, that was me!

    General CommentThe Royal Iris was the ferry that travelled on the Mersey until 1993 (I think.. I was only 2, I wouldn't remember!) when it was sold for a night club. The Beatles performed on there, on the ferry, as well as many other bands from Liverpool such as Gerry and the Pacemakers. Also the term "Mersey Beatin'" - Mersey Beat was a genre of music that was basically a collective name for the bands from Liverpool.

    The song is obviously about the Beatles and Paul's involvement with them long ago. Legend of a song!

    General CommentI think he alludes, ironically and well humored, to the conspiracy theories that say that today's Paul McCartney is not the same Paul McCartney of Beatles's early years...
