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?)

Yip. For those not in know the News of the World is a now defunct UK tabloid shut down for phone tapping a whole number of people, illegally accessing mobile phones and who knows what else (by the owners not the authorities). Its a good thing its gone im opinion. Awful paper.

I heard Paul McCartney's dad is Superman at the end of A Day In The Life.

Now can somebody tell me if one of the lines in Hey Bulldog is Don't look at me man I only have ten children.

I have always heard "Never could be any other way" at the end of A Day In The Life.

Definitely not..

I think so. Skip to 3:00 in the vid below and maybe you can make it out better than i can.

Listened to that clip and I DO think so. He that's pretty funny, never noticed they were talking at the end, thought it was just barking and random noise.

Listened to it again… Now I hear it, but I hear "Don't look at me man, I already have grandchildren."

In "Drive My Car" when the lyrics are "I wanna be famous. a star on the screen" I always thought it was "I wanna be famous, I started to scream", when I first saw the official lyrics I was like paul-mccartney MY LIFE HAS BEEN A LIE!!! But sometimes I still do sing "I started to scream" because that's just how I roll

In You Know What to do I thought George was singing "When I see you I just don't know the time of the day." Then I looked it up. See it pays to do research.

I just played Beatles Rock Band and at the end you don't have to say that stuff but in the lyrics on the bottom it says what I thought it said. But you can never know who is right in this twisted world.

In Suicide, I always thought it was

"She limps along to his side
Singing a song of ruinide
Betty says nothing to him"

and I was always really confused as to what ruinide was supposed to mean.

I Call Your Name, but you're not there. Was I to blame for being a bear?

You tell me that you've heard every sound there is, and your bird can scream

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

On Drive My Car for years I thought it was "I told the girl like a star on her way." Then I saw the lyric in a songbook "I told the girl I could start right away." Which makes more sense.

In I Want To Hold Your Hand I still say that the lyric is I Get High. I have never heard it as I Can't Hide, which is a stupid lyric. And what would it have to do with them supposedly not having been introduced to marijuana. Like you cannot be high on a girl?

Same here. Just fits better to me. I suppose it was supposedly more innocent times back them – maybe the BBC would have banned it and there would have been protests.

Well, they'd taken other drugs before they wrote the song, and yeah they could've also meant high on love or alcohol.

Nevertheless, the Bob Dylan story has been pretty well-established.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

I have never heard "I get high" in I Want To Hold Your Hand. It's always sounded like "I can't hide" to me.

Oh really? I've always thought I was right thinking it was something with ''star'' in Drive My Car. I never even thought about looking up the lyrics xD 

I can't make out half of what they're singing though.
