Yep we tend not to stick with our past, especially if it's all about mistakes.

In I Am The Walrus, I got confused when John said "van" i thought he orignally said "man." That was only like 2 times when I was first getting into a kick of that song back in 2011 when I was listening to all The Beatles songs many for the first time.

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

Presumably, we've all done it: listened to a Beatles song and either a) unintentionally picked up the wrong lyric or b) knew darn well that probably wasn't the right lyric, but couldn't figure out the real line, and so stuck with the blunder for lack of a better alternative.  And if you personally have not done this, you probably know someone who has.

So what are some of your favorite misheard lyrics, whether of your own faulty ears or those of someone else?

Here are mine:

1) I was convinced the second verse of "Let it Be" said "And in my outer darkness …"

2) My own Da' heard the lyric of "Taxman" as "… lay clever pennies on your eyes."

3) From the same source: the opening line of "Here, There, and Everywhere" was Paul singing, "Peter Weatherby … I need my love to be here."  And an internet username was born. :-)

4) Was always unsure why, in "Tell Me Why", John sang, "Did he have to treat me oh-so bad?"

5) The naughtiest line in "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" came in the raunchy bridge: "I need a fix 'cause I'm going down, down to the bitch that I left uptown"

Of course, now that I know the real lyrics for the above songs, I still sing the stray lines on purpose, just because it's an inside joke now and it's fun.

So what are/were some of yours?  Even more interesting: are there any lyrics you're still unsure about?

The 2nd one! I still say "lay clever pennies on your eyes", even though I've tried to correct myself.

I heard that first one ''in my outer darkness'' in Let it be.

 

And I still sing ''back to the bitch that I left uptown'' in Happiness Is A Warm Gun. I just like it bettera-hard-days-night-paul-7

But I've read that it WAS "man" originally, but John misread his own lyric sheet as "van" and liked it that way!

In the song "The End", when they sing "Love You, Love You,….", when I first heard the song, I actually thought they were singing "Burn You, Burn You,….". Yeah.

Yeah it only became clearer for me when Paul sang it live.

Paul sometimes sings that line as "in my darkest hour."

Up until just a few years ago I thought John was singing "he back reduction" instead of "he bad production" in Come Together.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Actually, I think it's "bag," not "bad." I could be wrong, though.

That would make sense, since John Lennon and Yoko Ono created Bagism.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 It is "bag". Bag Productions Ltd was John and Yoko's public relations company at the time, which derived its name from Bagism – one of the forms of peace protest they came up with in the late-60s.

"Bag" it is. I saw "bad production" on one of those questionable song lyrics sites a few years ago. All that we can be certain of is that it isn't "back reduction." paul-mccartney
