John Lennon on "With a Little Help From My Friends"

"I just saw Mel Torme on TV the other day saying that 'Lucy' was written to promote drugs and so was 'A Little Help From My Friends' and none of them were at all. 'A Little Help From My Friends' only says get high in it, it's really about a little help from my friends; it's a sincere message. Paul had the line about 'little help from my friends,' I'm not sure, he had some kind of structure for it and we wrote it pretty well 50-50 but it was based on his original idea."
