WIKI Song by the Beatles, written and sung by John Lennon (credited to Lennonâ€“McCartney) and released on the album Help! in August 1965. Lennon said of the song, "That's me in my Dylan period again. I am like a chameleon, influenced by whatever is going on. If Elvis can do it, I can do it. If the Everly Brothers can do it, me and Paul can. Same with Dylan." The song is an early example of John self-reflecting in his writing, which had begun with songs such as "I'm a Loser"
