Listen to any Beatle concert and I can gaurantee that John sings the wrong words to at least one song every time. He often messed up on Help and Baby's In Black.........all part of the live feel I say!

If I Fell was occasionally introduced as If I Fell Over. Lennon also referred to A Taste Of Honey as A Waste Of Money.

I cant't say anything to the stewie thing. I just know his german voice and that's different. Anyway which version do you prefer, the get back version (bootleg), the single version (Past Masters, Blue Album) or the rooftop version (movie, naked). I haven't heard the get back version very often so i can't really say something about it but i think the other 2 versions are both great, i think i like the rooftop version abit more because i think it features closer vocal harmony

The  '69 single b-side version, has more soul & feeling to the recording followed by the rooftop versions (but not the edit on Let It Be Naked). There is a looseness and freedom and joy to the rooptop performances (something missing from many of the Get Back recordings) plus its cool hearing John doing what he always did when singing live, messing up the words and adding in noises and stuff instead  - LIBN stupidly edited those out.  By the get back version i presume you mean the one that Glyn Jones selected for the unreleased Get Back albums - its a little too rough and underperformed. It would have been difficult to mix it in a way to make it sound professional.

I'm talking about the Past Masters version/Blue Album. I haven't heard the Get Back session version.
