I think I posted these months ago in another thread on "misheard lyrics," but here goes again …

 

Devil In Her Heart

Me: "I can't believe that she'll ever, ever go // not when she hurts me and says she loves me so."

Beatles: "I can't believe that she'll ever, ever go // not when she hugs me and says she loves me so."

 

Roll Over, Beethoven

Me: "I got the rockin' pneumonia, I need a shot of rhythm and blues // I think I caught it up the ladder sittin' down by the Rhythm Review."

Beatles: "I got the rockin' pneumonia, I need a shot of rhythm and blues // I think I caught it off the writer sittin' down by the Rhythm Review."

 

Love Me Do

Me: "Someone to love, someone I.Q."

Beatles: "Someone to love, someone like you."

 

Taxman

My da': "And my advice for those who've died // lay clever pennies on your eyes."

Beatles: "And my advice for those who've died // declare the pennies on your eyes."

Not a bit like Cagney.

From the UNMENTIONABLE song:

"Well, I know that I'm a wicked guy, and I was born with a yellow smile"…

a-hard-days-night-paul-7 I guess living in a Yellow Submarine gives you a Yellow Smile….

In Mean Mr. Mustard:

Me: "Saving up to buy us some coals"/ Actual: "Saving up to buy his new clothes"

I'm soooooooo tired…. I haven't slept a wink

I'm sooo tired… my mind is on a brick

I wonder should I get up and fix myself a drink

no no no noooooo

I'm sooo tired, I don't know what to do

I'm sooooo tired, my mind is set on blue

I wonder should I call you

but I know what you would do

You said you putting me wrong it's no mojo

it's doing me harm you know I can't sleep

It's cancer of brain I know in three weeks…

I'm going insane, you know

I'd give you everything I've got for a little piece of mind

 

I'm sooooo tired

I'm feeling so upset

Oh noo I'm so tired

I'll have another cigarette

I curse Sir Walter Raleight he was such a stupid git

you say you're putting me wrong it's no mojo

it's doing me harm you know

I can't sleep it's cancer of brain you know for three weeks

I'm going insane

I'd give you everything I'll clap for a little piece of mind

I'd give you everything I'll clap for a little piece of mind

I'd give you everything I'll clap for a little piece of mind

In You Never Give Me Your Money:

Me: Yellow Lauris/Lawrence got nowhere to go/Song: Yellow lorries got nowhere to go

 

I hadn't known buses were called lorries in England until recently, so even after I looked up the actual lyrics it still didn't make sense.

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 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

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
