Dig A Pony (Lennon/McCartney)

John's original title for Dig A Pony was "Con A Lowry" and even before that was called "All I Want Is You", the latter of which was written for Yoko, the former was a nonsense song made up in the studio. He combined the two, changed some lines, and thus was born Dig A Pony.
