Most sources I look up say "get," however I prefer "git." It is not consistent among lyric websites though. I'll check the official songbook tonight to see what it really is.

The 'White Album ' lyric sheet has "get", am sure it's a Liverpool dialect slang thing.

Both git and get aren't that different in pronunciation.

Very odd, I would have guessed "git" because it would make more sense definition wise.  I wonder if it was that way in the lyrics as to not offend anyone.

I hear 'ih' as in git  and 'eh' as in get differently. The way John puts the emphasis on it, cursing him, he spits out the word GET. To *my* ears. a-hard-days-night-george-9

It could be some weird accent thing... or maybe it is "get", that is after all apparently what the official lyrics say.

It's definitely 'GET', but I think he means it as 'git'. I suppose it must be a Liverpool thing, because in one of the outtakes (I think it's one of the Anthology takes of Eight Days A Week ) one Beatle refers to another as 'ya daft get'.

I suppose it doesn't really matter as long as we all get* the gist of what the lyric means. 

 

*or is it git?

Plot twist! Sir Walter Raleigh is immortal and never ages and drifts around the world. But it is super secret so keep it on the down low.

Well, goodbye Beatles Bible. It was a good run, but I have to move on now that my cover is blown and I must move back Across The Universe .

I wish I could find some pictures of the summer when I wore my Lennon glasses all of the time. I was so proud of my resemblance to the legend.

Of course @ewe2 is immortal. stuart-sutcliffe What I'm wondering is how you can be immortal only on weekends, @Necko.

....your name is mentioned and they're blowing the gaff on your time-travel chameleon circuit and you have a lot of explaining to do about the signature already and they're really going to pull you off this job and something has to be done about @Necko ...you know what?

anigif_enhanced-buzz-31303-1383252055-20_preview.gifImage Enlarger

I think its "git" in a Liverpudlian accent, John's accent can be a bit wacky with vowels. Damn it I forgot about the signature again...

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

I concede to the "it's the accent" re: John saying git or get. Could be either one. I always say get when I sing along, but eh, whatevs. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif
