Written for and featuring in the film Yellow Submarine. The Beatles LP version is shorter than the version used in the film, which has an extra verse.

Harrison said in I Me Mine, "It's All Too Much was written in a childlike manner from realizations that appeared during and after some LSD experiences and which were later confirmed in meditation."

The line 'With your long blond hair and your eyes of blue' is taken from the song Sorrow, a hit for The Merseys and, later, David Bowie.
