I used to ask the same question. And you know something? It took me soooo long, but eventually, I found out. Wink

Here a few more misheard lyrics that I've just realized are always nagging at the back of my mind:

1) In "The Devil In Her Heart", I could never make sense of why George sang, "I can't believe that she'll ever, ever go, not when she hurts me and says she loves me so", only to then immediately sing, "she'll never hurt me"

2) Where do you catch "rockin' pneumonia"?  In "Roll Over Beethoven", I was sure George said he caught his "up the ladder".  Watch out for those ladders.

3) Why was Paul so interested in the intelligence of his girl in "Love Me Do"?  You know ... "Someone to love, someone, IQ!"  It didn't make sense to me, lyrically, but who was I to argue with the songwriting team of Lennon-McCartney?

Not a bit like Cagney.

That's simple. John and Paul wanted to hold her hand; George didn't.

Ringo's opinion is not known.


 

I think Ringo's opinion was pretty well implied early on: "Honey, don't."


Apparently he had a change of heart, "
Don't Pass Me By."

"I Don't Want To Spoil The Party", but John and Paul ultimately said that "(...) I've been in love before, and I found that love was more than just holding hands"

 

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

This is not so much a misunderstood lyric; rather, it's a lyric that drives me insane! I refuse to sing along with it! It's from She's Leaving Home.

"Fun is the one thing that money can't buy" ~ ?! ~ Isn't fun one of the things that money CAN buy?!

Omg... "my baby donkey"... I'll never be able to sing Ticket To Ride normally again!! a-hard-days-night-paul-4

"Fun is the one thing that money can't buy". I thought money can't buy love? So there are, in fact, at least two things that money can't buy.

I always thought that the lyric in 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' was "I get high! I get high! I get high!" – in a non-drug related way. I still can't sing the song without singing that automatically.

At the end of " Old Brown Shoe" I always heard  "too loud, turn it down" (just like mom used to say) . Now, searching internet lyric sights, I see it is tu la tura tu.  Still have not the foggiest notion as to what it meansa-hard-days-night-john-3
