Information on how the Beatles wrote the lyrics to the Rubber Soul album songs can be navigated from below.
The lyrics to the Beatles wait were written by both Lennon and McCartney. It was very much a throwaway song; it had been recorded at the time of help! but didn’t make the album. It managed to get onto Rubber Soul as they were short of material. It is a basic love song about two people who would miss each other but needed to be patient as they would soon get back together again.
Both John And Paul do the lead vocals on wait, the style of the music and the way it is performed are out of keeping with the rest of the rubber soul album and are much more fitting to the earlier help album.
