Again, not a misheard lyric, but a misunderstood one.

"You and me burning matches, lifting latches."

I had always assumed that "lifting latches" meant that they were trying to see if doors were accidentally left open (you know, to find some shelter)… but I recently found out it's Scouse slang. Here's the definition.

Does it have the same meaning all over the UK? Did any Yank or Canadian know that that is what it meant? a-hard-days-night-paul-10


Canadian here! a-hard-days-night-john-5 And nope, I hadn't the slightest. Figured out about as much as you had!

I'd never heard of that meaning either (I'm from Somerset in the west of England). Must be a Liverpool thing. I too presumed it was to do with doors and locks. Thanks for the info!

Re: "Rain", I always hear the backwards vocal as: 'Stare her down and nourish her with miracles'. Makes as much sense as anything else, I guess!

It's you she's thinking of, and she only wants to say-e-ay.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I always thought on I Want To Hold Your Hand, they were saying " I get high!, I get high!,I get high!" but it turned out to be "I cant hide, I cant hide, I cant hide" Apparently Bob Dylan noticed this aswella-hard-days-night-george-4a-hard-days-night-john-1a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

And in her eyes you see nothing, No sign of love behind the tears, Cried for no one, A love that should have lasted years.

Ever since I was little I thought that "I can't hide" in I Want To Hold Your Hand was "I get high" 

Didn't really make sense to me; but ever since I learned the real lyric; it does now                      a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

I'll be back again :]

Usually I misheard sometimes the lyrics of Beatles songs, even if i knew the song already, this is of I Saw Her Standing There:

 

…And The Way She Looked

Cos' Way be on compare…

 

Well She Looked At Me

And I-I Could Concieve

That We far Too Long

I Fall In Love With Her.

 

Whouh, We dance through the night

And we hell each other time

And we far too long

I Fall In Love With Her.

 

On Misery:

The world is treating me back…(all verses including these phrase, i'd always said back)

 

I've lost the round for sure…

 

Send her bad to me…

 

She'll Remember And Your Miss Her Only One…

 

And Anna:

…You call(ed) as me girl…

 

(Sometimes i said) …She Said She Loves You More Than Him…

(Others) …She Said She Loves You More Than Me…

 

…that ask to love you so…

 

…I've been sented (or sended)  for a girl to love me that i love you

 

…But every girl I'd ever had…

It's not exactly misheard, more just a bit of fun, but when singing the chorus of Honey Pie (Honey Pie, you are making me crazy), I like to sing Honey Pie, Jamaican me crazy. Just one of those weird Beatley things.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

On the bright side, I guess it's better to be "looking" for it rather than "working" for it.
