Girl The Beatles Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney; released on the album "Rubber Soul". "Girl" was written mainly by John, and it was the last song to be recorded for the "Rubber Soul" album. It's an entirely acoustic ballad comparable to Greek music. The song plays with the different ("straight" and swing-feel) rhythmic patterns; both of them are present at the same time in the bridge, and shifting to straight eighth notes in the last (instrumental) verse. The only earlier example of this "trick" was in "I Call Your Name", although it was done there in reverse.
