well a quick listen reveals this day tripper isn't the kind of girl to settle down.

i reckon only girls who are already-settled-down are keen to buy a ticket back home ... and she is still hmm 'exploring' as it were, lots of one way tickets (and probably some baggage)

It's all a political metaphor for the Bay of Pigs incident. Those crazy Beatles and their counter-cultural diatribes. Only that "one way ticket" line gives away the allegory.
