Devil In Her Heart:

Me: Not when she hurts me and says she loves me so

Actual song: Not when she hugs me and says she loves me so      

 

Makes more sense than what I ever heard. Only bad thing about George's singing was he had a mushmouth.

"I am definitely a mad man with a box."- Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor of Doctor Who (Episode 1 Season 5: The Eleventh Hour)

I thought it was "paperback," too, but it makes sense if you think about whether he'd be airsick or not.

In Hey Jude:

Me: The whole world you need is on your shoulder/Song: The movement you need is on your shoulder

I probably thought that because of the earlier lines "Don't carry the whole world upon your shoulders"

 

Me: And don't you know that it's just you? Hey Judeyou do/Song: And don't you know that it's just you? Hey Jude, you'll do

 

Taxman:

Me: Declare the weddings on your eyes/Song: Declare the pennies on your eyes

That would've been a very weird line, indeed

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

I can't convince my siblings that the woman in Drive My Car expects the man to do the driving.

They hear:

W: I'm gonna to be a star!

M: *scoffs* Baby, you can Drive My Car

They're probably just baiting the Beatlegeek, but who knows. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

Tell them that the song is about a rich woman who wants a man for sex ("you can do something in between"). Then hopefully the penny will drop.

*involuntary sound of surprise similar to being jabbed with a needle*

What does "the penny will drop" mean? 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Ah right, sorry. It's nothing rude. "The penny drops" is that moment when you finally realise (or realize, for you US-English speakers) something, often when it's previously been elusive to you or obvious to other people.

e.g. "I always wondered why he kept on quoting Beatles lyrics in conversation. The penny finally dropped when I discovered that he frequented a web site known as The Beatles Bible".

Perhaps we should start a dialect, phrases and spelling thread. I get occasional messages telling me articles have spelling mistakes in them, whereas it's just because I write in British English (or just English, to use the proper term – we invented it, after all). Favourite/favorite, programme/program and so on.

The site's built on WordPress (the forum plugin is Simple Press). There's no built-in spellchecker, but my browser has one. I meant I get messages from members of the public pointing out spelling mistakes that aren't there.

Actually in Mexico we have a very same expression. "Me cayó el veinte". The translation can be "the 20 cents drops"

That of a dialect and phrases thread is a good idea. a-hard-days-night-george-6

Oh! I'd say that is sad, but considering it's coming from the internet, it's the best you can hope for.

I love love love British English. When I curse in English, I try to use British bad words. Actually my English project next year is to learn to speak English with British accent. I know it will be hard but….

I hate it when I'm reading the online comments section of a website I frequent, and someone "corrects" a British speller. It drives me insane. I actually rather like the British spelling better.

Could you point these out to me please? I'm curious as to which words or phrases I may use that aren't widely known outside the UK.

No Problem

Losing the will to live, pot-shots, bore the life out of me, the penny will drop. There are more, but I just can't find them now

Pot-shots? I've heard that used here.
