I Feel Fine Lyrics

Baby's good to me you know,
She's happy as can be you know,
She said so
I'm in love with her and I feel fine
Baby says she's mine you know,
She tells me all the time you know,
She said so
I'm in love with her and I feel fine
I'm so glad...

    This song is from the Beatles' early days when their songs were mostly shallow and meaningless. They weren't trying to create lyrics that could be interpreted by the listener; they were just trying to write catchy, radio-friendly tunes. This song is about how the author has a very loving relationship with a woman that makes them both happy. The author is also proud that he has enough disposable income and generosity to give his girlfriend jewelry.

    The use of the phrase "diamond rings" suggests that the author and his girlfriend might be engaged or even married. However, the statement that he gives her plural "rings", as opposed to one special diamond ring, suggests that he simply buys her diamonds to win her over rather than as a sign of commitment.

    This song could be interpreted as having misogynistic undertones because the author's girlfriend cares so much about being bought "things" and "diamond rings". Her character plays into the stereotype that women are materialistic. The song even insinuates that the reason this woman "loves" the author so much and is so "good to" him is that he buys her material things. In this sort of relationship, a woman is reduced to little more than a prostitute.

    However, the listener can interpret the song in other ways. The author's girlfriend may not care at all about the things and jewelry he buys her - perhaps she is simply proud that he wants to make sacrifices for her, albeit material sacrifices. His purchases can be seen as investments in their relationship which prove that he won't leave her (because he's already spent so much money on her!)
