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.

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.
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.
