Story behind the song
McCartney said the song relates to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: “ 'Fool on the Hill' was mine and I think I was writing about someone like Maharishi. His detractors called him a fool. Because of his giggle he wasn't taken too seriously ... I was sitting at the piano at my father's house in Liverpool hitting a D 6th chord, and I made up 'Fool on the Hill.'"
Lyrics
day after day, alone on a hill...
