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.

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.

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

 

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.

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.

which made realise that there was more than one innuendo in the song [Drive My Car]. I Want To Hold Your Hand pretty much sounds the same to me [I can't hide], though I might on loudspeakers.

I recently looked up the lyrics to "Say, Say, Say."  For years, I thought Michael Jackson couldn't possibly be saying anything other than "Baby Thuddeus, you've got me crying 'ooh, ooh, ooh.'"  I always wondered who Baby Thuddeus was.

I used to hear "I've got arms that long to hold you" in From Me To You as "I've got all night long to hold you," but then I realized that it couldn't be "night," so I thought it was "I've got all good long to hold you," which makes no sense. I figured out the real words much later.

my little cousin thought that Eleanor Rigby was Ellen and Rigby, and in Strawberry Fields Forever, I thought it was 'nothing to get hum about' instead of 'nothing to get hung about', and 'no one I think is in my tree, I mean it must be high alone' instead of 'high or low', and in Maggie Mae I always thought it was 'she never walked down light street anymore' instead of lime street and then 'tis a part of Liverpool, dirty turned me to, shoot box and a week there was my pay' and I never really understood it but apparently it's 'to the port of Liverpool, they returned me to, two pounds ten a week, that was my pay'ahdn_george_06

Typical misheard lyrics from "Penny Lane":

"In the boring rain..." (in reality it's "In the pouring rain...")

"Real music is made by real people playing real instruments using own creativity and skills."

In Magneto and Titanium Man, I always thought it was I need a titanium man, but it's magneto and titanium man. I don't understand how I didn't get that one.

Hi! I'm new to the forum, and I read through every post in this thread to make sure that my "misheard" lyric had not already been, uh... discussed to death. In the song "Love You To," George (supposedly) sings "Love me while you can... before I'm a dead old man"... Well, as a kid, I would play and sing along with Beatles' songs, and I had an official Beatles' sheet music book that listed that lyric as "Love me while you can... or I'll get a plan"... So, for years that is what I heard George singing. It sounded like a credible declaration; George was gonna get a plan, if all else failed. I thought it might be Liverpool slang, like when you're not particularly happy about something, and you threaten "Well, I'll just get a plan." It made about as much sense as the title to the song, anyway.

If anyone else misheard this lyric, please let me know. If not, well... I'll get a plan.

Aww you went through the whole thread? Here are a few apples for you, sir! apple01apple01

I've heard people say they've heard that before (though not necessarily on here), so you're not alone.

''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.''

Thanks for the apples, fabfouremily. I will gladly take them, considering this sad story from my past: I was a kid growing up in Scranton, Pennsylvania back in the late 60s/early 70s. Capitol Records had a manufacturing plant in Scranton then, and they were being kept busy cranking out Abbey Road discs. I had a friend in school whose dad owned a local printing company. They got the contract to print up the green apples that were being slapped on every Apple record. My friend invited me to go down to his dad's printing company, just a short distance from my home, and pick up for free an entire sheet of green Beatles' apples with no track listings printed on them; just bare, beautiful green Beatles apples like you have just given me. I was a huge Beatles fan, and I can't remember why, but I never took him up on the offer. What was I thinking? What a stupid get! Well, I'm not turing down your generous gift, so thanks again! :)

Now to slap this thread back on track, I should point out that the same official Beatles' sheet music that printed "Or I'll get a plan..." also had this misprinted lyric from "She Said, She Said:" "She said... who put all those things in your hair"... I never could make much sense of that, but I figured it was an abstract, hallucinogenic image from Lennon's imagination. But I always wondered why he didn't go for the obvious rhyme "I swear, who put all those things in your hair"...
