"A four of fish" refers to fourpennyworth of fish and chips,
while "finger pie" is sexual slang of the time, apparently referring to
intimate fondlings between teenagers in the shelter, which was a
familiar meeting place. In this way, taken in combination, the lyrics
are a not-so-subtly raunchy reference to "third base"[15]

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

*bump*

I read this the other day

Penny Lane” wasn’t about a street at all. Paul admitted it was about a teacher he had a crush on way back when in third grade.

Is there any traction to the theory that the lyrics could be about a teacher instead of the street? Where on Earth did they get that idea? I'm not buying it, but I just wanted to see what you all make of it.

Is this the 'source' where it comes from?

If so its utter garbage. Its utter garbage anyway but nice to have a source.

I linked to the article where I saw the information (see the highlighted read this in my post). Anyhoo, here it is again

http://www.rantchic.com/2014/0.....y/#slide17

So you found another site saying this rubbish, mmm. Interesting how stuff like this gets spread on the world wide web. One person reads it then perpetuates the myth.

Actually, that is one of the reasons I posted the question here. If people ever Google the topic, I hope they land on this site and get the truth.

There was a discussion of the Myth Busters t.v. show on another thread recently. I consider the BB and it's forum to be the Beatles Myth Busters site. Keep up the good work, Beatles Brains.

The following people thank Ahhh Girl for this post:
