So throughout all the footage, the audio, there is not even a whisper of it? Not on day 2 (January 3) of the sessions at Twickenham? -when was recorded.

I heard it was just alternate lyrics for Thinking of Linking he came up with when he forgot.

Edgar youre correct. During Get Back sessions in 1969 the familiar intro to Thinking Of Linking is heard but when Paul tries to come in with his vocal he seems to only half remember the words, muttering something like “I been thinkin thaaat you love me…” before trailing off as the half hearted performance breaks down. Do yes this is not a unique song but merely un uninspired half remembered performance of another established early Lennon and McCartney tune.
