These are my misheard lyrics:

 

1. In "Strawberry Fields Forever", I thought John sang "Living this easy way out clothes" instead of "Living is easy with eyes closed".

2. In "Lovely Rita", I thought to hear "Wake it's stark I told your heart to wait" instead of "When it gets dark I tow your heart away".

 

Then I don't remember right now what other lyrics I misheard. I think there are a few more, since my native language is not English.

The first time I heard Taxman, I thought it said "Declare the panties on your eyes" a-hard-days-night-john-6

I also used to think that in Old Brown Shoe, it said something about glue..... You can't blame for that mondegreen though because their voices are so muffled!!

From She's A Woman: "I know that she's no pheasant." I still sing it by habit when I sing along.

"Just call on me, and I'm Senator Long…"

It's not really a misheard lyric, but whenever I think of From Me To You those words pop into my head. I don't know why - we don't even have senators in the UK.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

'...and when I awoke, I was alone, whispered the fool...'

I've been saying that line wrong for ages. It wasn't until I heard the Anthology version that I heard him say 'This bird has flown' and I said 'Oooohhhhhh....that's why that's in the title." The sad part is I still say the wrong lyric. I'm working on it lol

I also misheard this lyric, something like "with just her phone". I had a similar eureka moment.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

Joe - how's your history of America, circa middle 1930's? Because Senator Huey Long was a popular conservative Senator from Louisiana, who, in 1935 and months before he was going to run for President against Franklin Roosevelt, was shot. No idea why you think that, tho.

I did always hear i get high in I Want To Hold Your Hand (as many others did), and i first heard that the real lyrics are i can't hiden when I read about the first meeting of dylan and the beatles, and in One After 909 i always hear koltes eis instead of cold as ice (that's a german slang word)

In Hapiness Is A Warm Gun, I always thought John was saying 'and cursing the walls around me', I only found out a short while ago that he's saying 'cursing Sir Walter Raleigh'. I now struggle to say the lyrics properly as 'the walls around me' is imprinted on my brain. Not good. a-hard-days-night-john-2

That's In "I'm So Tired." But yes, it does sound rather like that! Genius line though, quintessential John to curse the tobacco pioneer as a "stupid get" for inadvertently fuelling his late-night cigarette compulsion.
