"…Made a lightning trip to Vienna, eating chocolate cake in a bag…"

Anyway, back to Misheard lyrics, I always thought that "…He got Early Warning…" (from "Come Together") was "…He got Early Wallet…"

Remembered this taken from songmeanings.net's entry for She Said, She Said (and other places)

I said
Who put all those things in your hair
Things that make me feel like I'm sad
And you're making me feel like I've never been born

Must have been some serious stuff for John to feel like he'd never been born.

Speaking of Vienna, I need to get there asap since Paul is going to have a have a concert there.

I've had more than this example of misheard lyrics of Beatle songs, but here's the most far-off example (taken from Michelle):

Actual Lyrics: Michelle, ma belle, sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble, tres bien ensemble.

My Misheard Lyrics: Michelle, my bell, Sunday morns keep on playing piano and song, play piano and song. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

*"Morns" as in a short form of "Mornings".

 

As you can see, I was totally wrong!

^ It took me a few times to listen to Michelle before I gave up trying to hear what he says and I googled the lyrics…that's when I discovered that they were in French.

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

I did hear the ''tres bien ensemble'' bit, but I kept on hearing ''sunday monkey'' like Egroeg Evoli, and I still hear it like that >.<

I keep thinking back to this and it just cracks me up.

Noo, I just listened to 'Michelle' and now I can hear ''sunday monkey'' too!

Kind of on topic, I've just been reminded by the last post. Does anybody know the lyric in the Beach Boys 'Good Vibrations'? It goes ''I, love the colourful clothes she wears, and the way the sunlight plays upon her ——''. Is it head or hair? I can't make it out.

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

I'm pretty sure it's "hair." I think the verse is:

I love the colorful clothes she wears

And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair.

I hear the sound of a gentle word

On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air.

 

I always used to puzzle over the "gentle word" part. It just sounds to me like he's saying "murrrr."

Okay, thanks :)

It took me some time to hear what he was saying there too. Because I'm English, I often find it hard to understand what Americans are saying when they're singing.

It's annoying! Even if you know the original lyrics you keep on hearing ''sunday monkey''

Haha you do, yeah :)

What makes it worse is that I never heard that before a-hard-days-night-paul-11

When I was a young child (maybe 6 or 7) I wasn't really a big Beatles fan, but my dad was, and he played the song "Day Tripper" and I heard it as "Day trip up". My dad played a lot of Beatles (that's how I became a fan) and once I sang it with him, and I said "Day trip up" then he explained it to me. For 5 years I thought it was Day Trip Up.

 

It took me sooo long, to found out, but I found out.

 

EDIT: I also used to think in Eleanor Rigby it was "I look at all the lonely people" not "Ah, look at all the lonely people". It's an easy mistake.

Will I hear it like that now? I don't know, Iiiiiiiiii don't know… You stick around and it may show, I don't know, Iiiiiiiiii don't know…

Okay, your Day Tripper reference was better than my Something reference.

I made the same mistake with Eleanor Rigby. It's funny how I can hardly ever come up with some misheard lyrics myself, but when other people point them out with some of them I'm like ''ah yeah, I used to think so as well''

In Polythene Pam, I thought it was "She's the kind of a girl that makes a musical failure," not "She's the kind of a girl that makes the News of the World." (Those are the correct words, right?)
