I can never get the She Said She Said lyrics right.

I tried to think of something powerful and moving… and failed.  "You were given a choice between war and dishonor - you chose dishonor, and you shall have war" - Winston Churchill

"She liebt dick, yeah, yeah, yeah."

1.)Not when she hurts me and says she loves me so
2.)Was I to blame for being a square
3.)In the time when I was born
4.)Well she was just seventeen if you know what I mean
5.)I want her everywhere and if she's beside me I know I'll remember this
6.)Mr.H will demonstrate ten somersaults he'll undertake

ONE MINUTE YOU'RE DEFENDING THE WHOLE GALAXY, AND SUDDENLY, YOU FIND YOURSELF SUCKING DOWN DARJEELING WITH MARIE ANTOINETTE AND HER LITTLE SISTER.!

I had never known if Paul sang Sont Les Mots or Sont des mots in Michelle. I now realize it was the ladder.

At the end of the talking part of "Yellow Submarine" (just before the final verse), it sounds like they're saying 'Mash potato! Mash potato!' I'm not sure what they're actually saying there. Any ideas?

Here are some mishearing by me and some others by Paul is Dead theorists:

Sie Liebt Dich – "She lick dick"

Yellow Submarine, "In the town where I was born…" – "In the time when I was born…"

All You Need Is Love (at the end of the song), "Yesterday" – "Yes he's dead" | and, "She Loves You…" - "We Loved You…"

While My Guitar Gently Weeps, backing vocals saying "Oh!, Oh!, Oh! …" | "Paul!, Paul!, Paul! …"

A Day In The Life, "About a lucky man who made it great" – "About a lucky man who made the grade"

 

… and there are many others I can't remember at the moment right now. apple01

Two months ago, I got a crate of over 200 vinyl records from my dad (he was a DJ during the 80's) and The Red Album was included. So I decided to play it on my turntable and when it got to the chorus of Day Tripper my sister (Beatles hater) walked by my room then walked back to my room and asked me "Did he just say, 'He was a gay stripper. '? "

Most common misheard lyric in all Beatles songs xD

Good Dog Nigel. Arf, Arf, he goes, a merry sight. Our little hairy friend. Arf, Arf, upon the lampost bright, arfing around the bend. Nice dog! Goo boy, waggie tail and beg. Clever Nigel, jump for joy Because we're putting you to sleep at three of the clock, Nigel. -John Lennon "In His Own Write"

This isn't Beatles, but I always mishear the line "like a picture from hell" in Back On the Chain Gang by the Pretenders to be "like a pigeon from hell." a-hard-days-night-george-10

Also, I used to hear "making me feel like I've never been born" as "like I've never been wrong" in She Said She Said. The alternate lyrics make absolutely no sense contextually though.

"Now and then, though, someone does begin to grow differently. Instead of down, his feet grow up toward the sky. But we do our best to discourage awkward things like that." "What happens to them?" insisted Milo. "Oddly enough, they often grow ten times the size of everyone else," said Alec thoughtfully, "and I’ve heard that they walk among the stars." –The Phantom Tollbooth

Actually it's Ringo saying "Cut the cable, drop the cable"

 

You can see Ringo talking about it here (about 20 seconds in)(WHY AM I TERRIBLE AT EMBEDDING THINGS?!?)

When first hearing Do You Want To Know A Secret? i thought the do da do backing vocals were J & P singing "do not look", and for a while thought Paperback Writer was Paperbag Writer (at aged 9 i had never heard of a paperback, it was just a book, whereas when you bought sweets they came in a paperbag – no it makes no sense when listened in context).

Thanks for that- it makes more sense than 'mash potato'! Tee hee.

Actually, according to The Beatles rock band, in the fade out of AYNIL Paul does say "Loved you yeah, yeah, yeah. She loves you yeah, yeah, yeah".

These are my misheard lyrics:

 

1. In "Strawberry Fields Forever", I thought John sang "Living this easy way out clothes" instead of "Living is easy with eyes closed".

2. In "Lovely Rita", I thought to hear "Wake it's stark I told your heart to wait" instead of "When it gets dark I tow your heart away".

 

Then I don't remember right now what other lyrics I misheard. I think there are a few more, since my native language is not English.

The first time I heard Taxman, I thought it said "Declare the panties on your eyes" a-hard-days-night-john-6

I also used to think that in Old Brown Shoe, it said something about glue….. You can't blame for that mondegreen though because their voices are so muffled!!

'…and when I awoke, I was alone, whispered the fool…'

 

I've been saying that line wrong for ages. It wasn't until I heard the Anthology version that I heard him say 'This bird has flown' and I said 'Oooohhhhhh….that's why that's in the title." The sad part is I still say the wrong lyric. I'm working on it lol

 

I didn't know they were saying 'Roll up' on MMT….I have no idea what I used to sing but roll up wasn't it!

Try to realize it's all within yourself, no one else can make you change....

From She's A Woman: "I know that she's no pheasant." I still sing it by habit when I sing along.

From "Anna" in the last verse"

 

"Anna, just one more finger…"

 

Of course I had just entered puberty when I first heard this, so blame it on the hormones.

"Just call on me, and I'm Senator Long…"

It's not really a misheard lyric, but whenever I think of From Me To You those words pop into my head. I don't know why – we don't even have senators in the UK.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away
