Hello, everyone.

I’m new here, so thanks for adding me, first of all.


My question is:
can anybody please tell me what are the additional words Paul & George sing in the Ain’t She Sweet *ukulele* version?
(and which are also present in the Anthology 3 version).

Right after *ain’t that perfection* at 21″, approximately.

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the Fab Forum, @Giuseppe Gazerro.

From this webpage:……htm#AintS

Ain’t She Sweet
Note: These deviate from the normal lyrics a little.

Ain’t she nice?
Well look her over once or twice.
Well, I ask you very hydrophollicky

Ain’t she nice?
Just cast an eye In her direction.
Oh me! Oh my!
Ain’t that perfection?
Mouldy Old Dough

Did he just say “Mouldy old dough”? There’s a song by a group called “Lieutenant Pigeon” with this title. Lt. Pigeon is in fact a Coventry born man, pretty much only famous for that one hit in the 60/70’s. But also Lennon is drawing on the old style singing, where phrases like “Boop boop be doop” (e.g. Betty Boop and Marilyn Monroe) and “Foldy oldy oh” (very 1920’s) appeared. What a strange cross of styles!

John: I hope you liked that trip/trick
