創作

當Paul獲得其創作靈感時,他正住在珍妮·阿什家人的屋中。他如此描述其經歷[3]

I was laying in bed in the Ashers' garret... I was thinking of it as a song for Ringo, which it eventually turned out to be, so I wrote it as not too rangey in the vocal, then started making a story, sort of an ancient mariner, telling the young kids where he'd lived. It was pretty much my song as I recall... I think John helped out. The lyrics got more and more obscure as it goes on, but the chorus, melody and verses are mine.

那時我正躺在阿什閣樓的床上...我在為 Ringo 作一首歌...並構思一種由老水手向小孩子們訴說他住過的地方的故事。歌曲大部分都是我的創作...和聲、結構、旋律都是我作的。

原本歌曲有不同顏色的潛水艇,但最後只採用黃色的[4]


1980年John說:

'Yellow Submarine' is Paul's baby. Donovan helped with the lyrics. I helped with the lyrics too. We virtually made the track come alive in the studio, but based on Paul's inspiration. Paul's idea. Paul's title... written for Ringo.[3]

Yellow Submarine 是 Paul 的得意之作,Donovan 有寫部分的歌詞(Sky of blue and sea of green)[5],我亦有。樂隊在錄音室中令這歌獲得生命,但這有賴 Paul 的創作。

Paul:

It's a happy place, that's all. You know, it was just... We were trying to write a children's song. That was the basic idea. And there's nothing more to be read into it than there is in the lyrics of any children's song.[3][6]

那裏純粹是一個快樂的地方...我們希望寫一首兒歌。歌詞正如一般兒歌般,沒有更深層的意思。
