I thought that he was saying: was I to blame for being a bear?

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

My parents tell me that I thought "they're gonna crucify me" was "they're gonna goosey-fly me". Makes us all laugh at how blissfully ignorant we are as toddlers.

 

For some reason, I have memory of "Paperback Writer" being thought of by me as "Pickle-Back Writer". I'm not sure if I always knew the title, but considering I have hated pickles all ym life, I don't think it was a joke.

Mr. Octopus Mustard is a mean old man, but if you give him your money (he's saving up to buy some clothes), he'll let you into his garden. His sister Polythene Pam, who came in through the bathroom window, takes him out to see Her Majesty, and he always shouts out something obscene, usually related to how she's so heavy and yet he wants her, with the net result that, if things go well, he'll have to carry her weight a long time. Mr. Mustard's friend is Maxwell Edison, the Sun King (people tend to say "here comes the Sun" when he arrives), who says "I know you, you know me, one thing I can tell you is you got to be free." Max nearly broke down and died when Pam told him she didn't need him anymore—there's just something in the way she moves, and oh yeah, she's gonna be in his golden slumbers tonight.

Mine, unfortunately, aren't as funny as all of you guys' misheard lyrics--but I shall post them anyhows!

"Here, There and Everywhere": You know the part that says "Nobody can deny that there's something there"? Well...for some reason, I thought it said "Nobody can. Delilah, there's something there", and it ended up taking me close to two years of singing the line incorrectly to realize that it didn't even make sense. Needless to say, I figured it out in the end.

"A Day In The Life": So this one isn't a huge offense--in fact, it's very minor--but the line that says "Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lawwww..." came across as "Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords". Like I said, a subtle and rather humorless mistake.

"Imagine": I know this is technically a solo song and all, but I thought I'd post it here anyways: I figured you guys wouldn't mind. In the part that goes: "Imagine no possessions. I wonder if you can? No need for greed or hunger: a brotherhood of man", I could have sworn that the last line said "a brother book of man". What the heck a brother book is, I'll never know--maybe it's some kind of family album dedicated only to siblings? Perhaps I shall make one some day... a-hard-days-night-george-10

"I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know? I'm just one of those people."

Dipsy, that A Day In The Life line is "House of Lords".

Those frere jacques backing vocals still sound to me like Ravi Shankar, even after all these years.

Dipsy said, ""Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lawwww…" came across as "Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords""

 

Why Dipsy, the lyrics are printed right there at the back of the album!  :)

 

(P.S. Sgt Pepper marked the first time that any album featured its lyrics so prominently)

I thought I read somewhere that Sgt. Pepper was the first time the lyrics were printed on an album period, Into the Sky...?

And as for looking at the lyrics, I didn't even think to do that at the time...(silly Dispy!). Then again, it could just be because I have a weird quirk where I subconsciously challenge myself to learn the lyrics to any and all new songs without using any sort of aid. So my brain must automatically block out my ability to come to such an easy conclusion of discovering the true lyrics: looking at the back of the album!

Yup; sorry I wasn't clearer.

I was just teasing you - I assume that these days when someone hears "A Day In The Life" for the first time, they're not holding the album in their hands but clicking around iTunes.

That would be a shame...I may not have the actual albums, but I've made it a point to purchase hard copies for all of my Beatles albums. Maybe I'm strange, but I like for my boys' music to be tangible. a-hard-days-night-george-10

P.S.: I know you were just teasing me, but I'm stunned myself that I never thought of looking at the lyric book at the front cover of my Pepper CD! I feel rather embarrassed now...(in a silly, laughable way--not a watery-eyed "I-will-now-back-away-slowly-from-all-of-society-and-begin-my-new-life-as-a-hermit" kind of way haha).

You can use the word "fork" here, Strawberry...

Thought i mentioned it on this thread before (not that it's anywhere as funny as some of these mistranslations) but up until a year or so ago I thought it was "Little darling, it's been a long cold NORTHERN Winter" instead of "lonely".

I always thought that in Here Comes The Sun he was saying "Keep it coming". I still sing it that way just becuase that's how I hear it still.

Everytime I hear 'Something' I think he's saying 'don't wanna leave her now, you know I believe in hell' but all the lyric websites that I have been on say that he says ' (..) and how'. '(...) in hell' makes more sense to me, as well. a-hard-days-night-george-10

No, "you know I believe and how" is correct.

It's "You know I believe in how", as in he knows everything will work out.
