Don't Pass Me By

(Working titles: "Ringo's Tune," "This Is Some Friendly")

Ringo hadn't gotten too many of his own compositions on Beatles albums at this point; by his own admission, his fellow band members would "go into hysterics" when Ringo would play a self-penned tune that had subconsciously ripped off someone else's.

This one isn't especially reminiscent of any songs, except in its cliches. The lyrics are pretty banal when they're not head-scratching ("You were in a car crash, and you lost your hair"??). Listenable enough, but it probably didn't make Buck Owens lose any sleep.
