Hi, Hi, Hi

"Hi, Hi, Hi" was an energetic Wings single that was banned by the BBC for its "suggestive" lyrics. The specific "sexual" line objected to is the apparent phrase "get you ready for my body gun." McCartney has said that the correct lyrics are "get you ready for my polygon," an abstract image. However, the BBC also assumed that the title phrase, "We're gonna get hi, hi, hi" was a drug reference.

It became a concert favourite in the Wings' live shows. The B-side, "C Moon" was an early faux ska tune, complete with a missed-cue intro that was kept in the released version. "C Moon" is meant to represent a circle, or the opposite of "L7," which was the sign for "square" or "unhip."
