    Find out how the lyrics to We Can Work It Out by the Beatles came to be written.

    The Beatles We can work it out was written by Paul McCartney and describes another break up in his on off relationship with then girlfriend Jane Asher. Although the Beatles were massively popular Jane was a talented actress in her own right, and wanted to be known as more then just Paul McCartney's girlfriend.

    In 1965 Jane got offered a job in Bristol and took it. Paul did not like this has he had old fashioned values and thought that his girl should do what he said. This led to the couple breaking up and Paul writing We can work it out as a plea for her to come back. It is interesting that in the lyrics that Paul does not admit to any mistakes and that it is Jane who needs to make the changes for their relationship to work out.

    Although the we can work it out was Paul's song about getting back together with Jane, John contributed with the middle eight, when he talked of life being to short for fighting, and that they should just get back together.
