Day Tripper was the third and final of The Beatles' consecutive Christmas number ones, a feat only matched by that other legendary British beat combo the Spice Girls.
Lennon and McCartney split the tune down the middle, the former writing the music (including the signature riff) and the latter the lyrics, which focus on a weekend hippy who's only part-committed to the lifestyle.
The line “she's a big teaser” was originally “she's a prick teaser”, but was taken out of the final version. Ironic really, given that it's now more or less compulsory to include that kind of a line in a pop hit.
