Two of Us Lyrics
Hard earned pay
You and me Sunday driving
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home
Two of us sending postcards

It's about people being in love and spending the rest of there life together.

I think this song is about the relationships between the members of the Beatles. There are possible references to their use of marijuana: " Burning matches", and to the Help! album cover " Two of us wearing raincoats standing solo in the sun"

It's about Paul and Linda, when they were dating and acting silly.
I always took this as a song about John and Paul. Being that it was being performed during a very tough time for the group. They both were fans of the Everly Brothers. You can here John on one version telling Paul "Take it Phil" when it was his turn to sing a verse.

What does the first verse, the guy talking, mean? " 'I Dig A Pygmy' by Charles Hawtrey and the Deaf Aids.
Phase one, in which Doris gets her oats." What is that, and where's Phase two??

I would love to say that this song is about Paul and John, although it sounds more like a song about a couple. It's really beautiful -- one of my favorites.

I think this song is about John and Paul. "You and I've got memories, longer than the road that stretches out ahead." I think this refers to their friendship. 'Longer than the road that stretches out ahead,' they know each other better than anyone, they wrote most of their songs together, they've always been and always will love each other, even after the band breaks up. The song is off their last album (actually recorded before Abbey Road but released after), when recording they (the Beatles) knew they wanted a break. Even though they were sick of each other, they knew they'd forever be best friends. Even if they were doing different things.
I think the raincoats and standing solo part refers to the photo shoot for HELP!, just look at the cover of the album. The two of them..

"Two of us riding no where" refers to Linda. When Paul was feeling really crappy about everything and getting very stressed out, Linda and he would get in a car and drive around until they were lost. This would calm him down. The song is about Linda and his driving trips.
