Default She Loves You: My theory

Just my theory but could some of the lyrics of She Loves You have been subconsciously inspired by the Bob Wooler incident?

The reason I say so is that it was six days previously i.e before writing commenced, that Lennon was ordered by Epstein to send a telegram apology to Wooler. Check out the lyrics:

"You know it's up to you
I think it's only fair
Pride can hurt you too
Apologize to her"

Also..

She said you hurt her so
She almost lost her mind (Lennon actually said he was out of his mind)
And now she says she knows
You're not the hurting kind

The whole theme of the song is of reconciliation. I think the fact that the events were so close and that it really shook Lennon up (he said he thought he was close to killing Wooler) it can't be coincidence. Or perhaps McCartney wrote those words in the third person with the events in mind.

I'm not saying they set out to consciously write about it or that the song is about Bob Wooler but that the events subconsciously influenced some lyrics.

I read that Paul wrote it for a girl he was then dating, Dot Rhône. At last count, Dot is living in Canada and was blessed with 3 daughters.

No it wasn't written by McCartney it was a Lennon McCartney collaboration. It's also addressed to a boy.

I read that it was a collaborative effort and that the boys wanted to write a song that was not in the first person tense. Jim McCartney wanted the boys to say "yes" instead of "yeah." Good thing they didn't take his advice.

I did read that the song was about Dot Rhône.

Yeah, yeah, yeah became a Beatles' trademark!

Yé, yé, yé is how their fans said it French!
