Perhaps it's nothing more than he goes to a girl's flat with the anticipation of sex, ends up cock-blocked when all she wants to do is talk and go to bed early, he sleeps in the bath being really pissed off, and as revenge burns her fucking house down after she leaves for work in the morning. That's the interpretation I've taken (which is quite literal if one listens to the lyrics!) from the first time I heard this song almost 30 years ago. I really don't think there's anything else to it. John was a cheeky guy who also had a violent/mean streak at the time, especially toward women, so that last line is entirely in keeping with his character, and Paul corroborated it. For me, end of discussion stuart-sutcliffe

Thats mostly how I've seen it too, yet sometimes I think they did do something. If we go straight from verse to verse we have 'it's time for bed' right to 'she told me she had to work so I slept in the bath.' If we take it that those events occurred right after each other then nothing happened. However, if we take into account the time represented by the musical interlude in between those two verses, it makes sense that it was 'time for bed' they had sex during the interlude, then after, she told him she had to work so ('Go away John, I need sleep&#39a-hard-days-night-george-10 of to the bath for Johnny! He then burned down her house for kicking him out of bed/not going a second round.

I put &#39a-hard-days-night-george-10 and got &#39 a-hard-days-night-george-10

Editing doesn't fix... Should I report this to the strange things thread? Because something weirder and similar happened yesterday.

 

Edit: It did it again!! I put ' next to ) and got the George thing.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

Apparently... Explosions of George too. Maybe it's because of my avatar... It is the same picture. Maybe it's a Team Kite explosion

All good points, only reason why believe there to be intercourse is the musical climax lol. Also for John saying it was about an affair. I take that burning down the house was his way of ending the affair. They also called girls birds, so by the lyric this bird has flown, could mean she literally left or that John was also done with her. Wouldn't be surprised if Norwegian Wood, sounded similar to a name John knew. 

Edit: Upon more pondering, I think he didn't get any, that she got him drunk led him on then went to bed, Also the first verse I once had a girl or should I say she once had me, makes me think he felt tricked by her.

It's not like its A Day In The Life a-hard-days-night-john-6

Yeah should of said bridge, was trying to make a slight pun on what I thought was going on in story. Amazing only John could have crammed so much information in 2 minutes. Might be my favorite song by him lyrically. I wonder if there is a specific girl this and Girl are about. Or if just woman in general.

Just a song about an affair John doesn't carry through; with a comedic twist………same as 'Drive My Car' Comedy songs.
