“Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey” has the longest title of all the songs in the Beatles’ catalog. It was written by John Lennon (credited to Lennon/McCartney) and appears on the Beatles’ 1968 double-disc “The White Album”.
In a 1980 interview, John Lennon said: “That was just a sort of nice line that I made into a song. It was about me and Yoko. Everybody seemed to be paranoid except for us two, who were in the glow of love. Everything is clear and open when you’re in love. Everybody was sort of tense around us: You know, ‘What is she doing here at the session? Why is she with him?’ All this sort of madness is going on around us because we just happened to want to be together all the time.”
