"Teddy Boy" is a song by Paul McCartney and was first released on his first solo album McCartney, released in April 1970 after the Beatles disbanded.



It was written by McCartney during the Beatles' stay in India, and originally recorded during the 1969 sessions for what would become The Beatles' Let It Be album. Several versions exist, all of which are acoustic, some of them including electric guitar by George Harrison or improvised harmony vocals by McCartney and John Lennon.

According to Paul McCartney in the documentary Wingspan, he wrote this song for the Beatles' Let It Be sessions, but due to tension in the group at the time nobody had the patience to work with it. Still, the Beatles recorded the song 6 times in January 1969, at their Apple Studios in London. A composite version made of two of these recordings was released in 1996 on the Anthology 3 album.
