The "official" lyrics are "and she's making me feel like I've never been born" but I'm listening to this song and there's no way that those are right! It sounds like "and she's making me feel like I'll never belong" or even "and she's making me feel like I've never been wrong." This has been driving me crazy for years and I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts. Maybe that's how the scouse accent pronounces born, but it just doesn't sound right to me.

In this Beatles chordbook I have, the lyrics are "been born", and in this book I'm reading, The Beatles and Philosophy, it also says that the lyrics are "been born". I just gave it a listen and I think it sounds like "born"... I used to think it was "belonged", though. It's probably "born"...? a-hard-days-night-paul-2

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

Alright well I just listened to the demo on youtube and it's much clearer that he says born, but still, it does sound like belong on the actual song.

Although I don't understand why he didn't keep the "and he's making me feel like my trousers are torn" line in there.a-hard-days-night-john-7

Here is a great article about the lyrics. I found this on my favorite web site.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-6 That's MY favorite web site, too! 

It always sounded like "Never been born" to me. But then again, I also always thought John sang the "Aaaahs" in "A Day In The Life." I also think rain is wet, so obviously I can't be trusted. (Anybody spy the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" reference?) 

But "She Said She Said" is my favorite composition of John's on Revolver, so I pay extra special attention.  

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

Me three! We should all start a forum there.a-hard-days-night-john-1 Anyways I've always thought it was "been born" as well. Of course, it could be "cranberry sauce".

I now declare this bridge open!

Never hear about it. Thanks!

 

When I heard it for the first time, I heard clearly "... been born" and I thought: "Man, she (he, in fact, Peter Fonda) made him (Dr. Winston O'Boogie) feel that way? How's that possible? Wow!" That's f*cking genius!"

 

And because this kind of things, I fell in love with the Beatles.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

Yeah, I wasn't demeaning them, just saying that it's probably easier to feel like you've never been born when you're on LSD than when you're sober. a-hard-days-night-john-3
