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.

I thought it was "band" at first.

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

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

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.

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

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

"...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!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I used to think that lyric was "Sunday monkey won't play piano song, play piano song." :)

^ 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."
