As stated previously,
Sir Paul said in a statement about his book: “More times than I can count I’ve been asked if I would write an autobiography, but the timing has never been right. The only thing I’ve ever managed to do, whether at home or on the road, is write new songs. I know that some people, when they reach a certain age, like to consult a journal to recall the daily events of the past, but I do not have such notebooks. What I have are my songs, hundreds of them, which I’ve learned serve pretty much the same purpose. And these songs cover my whole life.
Interestingly, the 154 songs that make up the book are organized alphabetically, not chronologically. In doing so, the book “…establishes for the first time the definitive texts of the lyrics of the songs and describes the circumstances in which they were written, the people and places which inspired them, and this [McCartney] think of them now.
The songs featured in The lyrics: 1956 to the present day are the following:
