Here is the story:
“GLASS ONION, 1968⠀
“That’s me, just doing a throwaway song, you know, à-la-‘Walrus’, à-la-everything-I’ve-ever-written.
I’m throwing the line in ‘the Walrus was Paul’ there, just to confuse everybody a bit more and because I felt slightly guilty because I’d got Yoko and he’d got nothing and I was going to quit. And so I thought ‘Walrus’ has now got to be me, meaning ‘I am the one’.
Only it didn’t mean that in the song. The reason is, it could’ve been ‘I’m the fox terrier’, you know? I mean, it’s just a bit of poetry. So it was just thrown in like that.”⠀
