Lennon kreeg inspiratie voor het nummer nadat zijn toenmalige vrouw Cynthia "door bleef gaan over iets". Het nummer kent invloeden uit de transcendente meditatie, waar de Beatles in 1967-1968 in geïnteresseerd zijn geraakt. Lennon beschreef het nummer later als "een van de beste teksten, zo niet de beste tekst, die ik ooit heb geschreven".
