"Took her home, I nearly made it" was taken as a clue for PiD; he was going home [on the night of a studio argument with the other 3], there was a car accident, he died. Sad that nobody thought about the passenger, maybe she survived.

I was really "into" the "Paul-is-dead" clues when the story first broke, and I guess I never heard the one about "…nearly made it…" So, if that was the case, not only is it a mystery how the Lovely Rita fared in the car crash, but then we are left with the uncomfortable image of Paul's now deceased body propped up beside Rita's sister or sisters on the sofa. How gruesome! Rita must have survived the crash, and was hospitalized nearby, but for some reason the lifeless Paul was laid to rest "sitting" on his new girlfriend's couch. Hmm…very surrealistic imagery.

Like any clue they only take the bits that fit so everything else is ignored. However Couch starts with a c and whip out the cushion and you have a box so theres your coffin.

In Lovely Rita I always thought that Paul sang "Got the bill and read to pay it." Which makes sense since you had to read the bill to pay it, but recently I found that it is "Got the bill and Rita paid it" 

BBCSession1963, I had a problem with Lovely Rita's very next line. I could read the lyrics on the back of the album "Took her home and nearly made it"… But I was too young and naive to "get" the phrase "made it," when it came to those sassy sisters sitting on the sofa. I thought Paul was just contradicting himself when he said "Took her home, I nearly made it"… "Well, which was it," the young naive me thought to myself; "Did you take her home, or nearly take her home?" I stlll liked the song, though. And the light bulb finally went on about that clever line. :)

Some say its all about a clue that Paul died in a car crash hence the "nearly" I think that he nearly made it like "We were nearly late" as an example how I thought the word was used. Then he'll be sitting on that sofa

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

I thought that in Penny Lane they said "there beneath the blues and purple skies" instead of "there beneath the blue, suburban skies".

And don't get me started about the line in Penny Lane, where I thought I mis-heard them sing "Four of fish and finger pies." (which sounded childish and vaguely vulgar to me) Then I finally saw the official lyrics, and, uh… what do ya know, they are singing "Four of fish and finger pies." And it is childish and vaguely vulgar. :)

Not a beatle song but I always heard on Under Pressure "It's the terror of NORWAY" instead of "terror of KNOWING"…..

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."

This isn't exactly a misheard lyric; It's a mis-printed lyric, from my Beatles' sheet music for Penny Lane. Instead of the "banker sitting waiting for a trim," the songbook says "the banker sitting waiting for a trend." Huh? What kind of trend is he waiting for? A hairstyle trend? An economic trend? Well, I guess he is a banker…

I really like the idea of the banker getting a haircut he hates, then having to sit inside the barbershop waiting for it to come into fashion. "He's been here for weeks now. I wish punk would hurry up and come along; that mohican's not going anywhere…"

Penny Lane has a lot misheard lyrics for me. I'm pretty sure Paul sings "Meanwhile back." Sometimes I hear it "Meanwhile banker" and in "four off fish and finger pies" was always for me "full of fish and finger pies."

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

Joe, this made me laugh out loud, and I can definitely see the scene as part of an "alternate" Penny Lane video: The postman delivering the latest men's fashion magazine to the barbershop, and the stubborn banker casually flipping through the pages to see if he is finally "trendy" enough to leave. :)

If this has already been covered in this long thread, I apologize for the duplication. But when I first heard "Taxman," I had no knowledge of British politics, so "Mr. Wilson" and "Mr. Heath" didn't register with me. I thought the background Beatle vocalists were singing "A-ha, miss the wheels, son… a-ha, miss the heat." I actually thought this through, and I made it make sense; there must have been a heavy tax on car tires in England, which is why young male teenage drivers couldn't even afford to equip their automobiles. Also, there must be oppressive taxes on coal stoves, natural gas furnaces, and firewood. Of course, these poor over-taxed folks would miss the heat on a cold damp winters' day. No wonder George was so upset.

Hmmmm… Ah, as for the Sgt Pepper inner groove, I always thought it said "never could see any other way", and one time my friendo believed Helter Skelter was spelled and sung as "Hetler Sketler", which led to an argument with her dad and now her least favorite, perhaps, despised Beatle track. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

For the longest time on Three Cool Cats, I thought the words were, "Walking down the street, shaking their hips, spitting up a bag of potato chips."

This mis-heard lyric appeared today on the mainpage of… (gulp)… the Beatles Bible! At least I think it should be "Mama said it's gotta stop." Although maybe Mama's actual, physical "head" is really out of control, and has to be stopped at all costs, as in a sci-fi "B" movie. :)

Well, mama’s head has got to stop

I always thought John was singing: ''But if you go mumble mumble of german minds'', until i read the lyrics for ''Revolution'' btw.

He is really singing: ''But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao'' You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow …

Takes time to get use to singing this part right, it just feels wrong :D

 

Also saw ''Nowhere Boy'' today – Enjoyed it very much, and i even cried when *Spoiler alert* Mimi explained why she had to take John away from Julia.

I NEVER heard what they were singing in that third line…………I absently thought I could hear……."Brighten her to do". It wasn't a song I played on guitar so I'd never looked at the lyrics. I didn't worry about it enough to sort the 'mystery' out until a couple of years ago.

 

You know it's up to you,
I think it's only fair,
Pride can hurt you, too,
Apologize to her

 

By the way I never liked that hit song of Paul's about his, 'leaking tyre'

Good movie, but it does sensationalize the story.  It didn't exactly happen like that.  The "All These Years" book tells the much more realistic (and credible) story.  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"
