Wikipedia, about "Norwegian wood" :

"This exchange took place in a press conference in Los Angeles on 24 
August 1966:

    Reporter: I'd like to direct this question to messrs. Lennon and 
McCartney. In a recent article, Time magazine put down pop music. And 
they referred to "Day Tripper" as being about a prostitute...
    Paul: Oh yeah.
    Reporter: ...and "Norwegian Wood" as being about a lesbian.
    Paul: Oh yeah."
