Although Paul composed the electric piano part, John looked over his shoulder to learn it so he could perform it himself on the recording. Additionally, while Mark Lewisohn's books, Recording Sessions and Chronicle, refer to vocal overdubs, neither cites McCartney as the vocalist. Despite this, John's harmony vocals on this track sound eerily like Paul's on The Ballad of John and Yoko -- so much so that for decades it's been widely assumed (as in Alan W. Pollack's analysis linked below) to be Paul on backing vocals.
