You forgot Octopus's Garden, m.c.

And he got part credit on Free as a Bird and Christmas Time is Here Again.

Quite prolific!

But the answer is two on his own.

Hey wait, he DID get partial credit on "Dig It" and "Maggie Mae" (although that one was traditional it was arranged by all 4 Beatles)

Paul and John performed a few nights as The Nurk Twins.
There was also a moment when Long John Silver was in there.
In fact your question isn't easy.I think you need to specify.
Narrow it down to groups with John and Paul for example.

10 million roughly if we're talking about the single
