"Dear Boy" as written by and Linda Mccartney Paul Mccartney....
I guess you never knew, dear boy, what you had found
I guess you never knew, dear boy, that she was just the cutest thing around
I guess you never knew what you had found, dear boy

I guess you never saw, dear boy that love was there
And maybe when you look too hard, dear boy, you never do become aware
I guess you never did become aware, dear boy

When I stepped in, my heart was down and out
But her love came through and brought me 'round
Got me up and about

When I stepped in, my heart was down and out
But her love came through and brought me 'round
Got me up and about

I hope you never know, dear boy, how much you missed
And even when you fall in love, dear boy
It won't be half as good as this

I hope you never know how much you missed
Dear boy, how much you missed, dear boy

    Song ComparisonMcCartney has cited "God Only Knows" by the Beach Boy as one of his favorite songs of all time. If you listen to it and "Dear Boy", you'll hear a lot of similarities--most notably the backing vocals ("bah bah bah") and the tapping-like percussion in the background.
