Sir Paul McCartney learned to croak like a frog during THE Beatles first American tour, and later used the vocal talent on hit WE ALL STAND TOGETHER.

American musician BOBBY GOLDSBORO, who played in Roy Orbison's backing band, toured with the Fab Four in 1963 - and amused himself by tricking them into thinking there was an amphibian on the tour bus.

Goldsboro says, "I do an incredibly accurate impression of a frog croaking. For the first few days they thought there really was a frog on the bus. Paul McCartney learned to do it pretty well."

When asked if it was the inspiration for McCartney's vocals alongside RUPERT BEAR on the 1984 hit, Goldsboro replies, "That's exactly right."
