“Watching the Wheels” was the third and final single from John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Double Fantasy.

It’s almost like a zen monk, you know, zen priest, saying something very wise. And he was wise, yeah.”

John Lennon and Yoko Ono entered the Hit Factory in New York to begin recording Double Fantasy on August 4th, 1980.
