While giving an interview to Rolling Stone in 1970 he used Day Tripper as one example of their collaboration where one partner proposed the main idea and the other just completed it. McCartney claimed it was a collaboration based on Lennon's original idea.
Later, McCartney said that the Day Tripper album was about drugs, it was a song about someone who was ... committed only in part to the idea. In 1966, McCartney asserted that Day Tripper was "a funny song, a song with jokes in."
