Am I correct in assuming that the first line 

I get high when I see you go by

is the first instance of the Beatles using that phrase? I know they slipped 'Turns me on' into She's A Woman the previous year. 

Just interesting... a-hard-days-night-john-6

Half of what I say is meaningless... but I say it just to fill the other half with Beatlerubbish.

Nothing else comes to mind. Dylan did mishear "I get high" in 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' but i doubt that counts.

I thought we had a discussion on this song. ahdn_paul_01

Anyway. I love this track. Yeah the lyrics are lazy and John detested it (listening to him play on the radio in 1974 is a delight) but there is a gorgeous innocence thought-out. The way John cannot take the lyrics seriously and sings them so in verse two is a treasure well worth discovering over and repeatedly.
