|| Barry Miles: 'Wait' was written in the Bahamas, during the filming of Help!, and was originally intended for the soundtrack album. Paul: We [Paul, John and late actor Brandon de Wilde] chatted endlessly, and I seem to remember writing 'Wait' in front of him, and him being interested to see it being written. I think it was my song. I don't remember John collaborating too much on it, although he could have.
—Paul McCartney & Barry MilesMany Years From Now, p.278, 1994
|| Three more songs were needed. Paul came up with one, John another, and for the third they pulled 'Wait', the discarded Help! track, out of the tape library, added various bits and pieces and pronounced it fit for inclusion on the new LP.
—Mark Lewisohn, The Beatles Recording Sessions, p.68, 1988
