It's a fine song. My favourite on Pepper and probably in my Top Ten pretty consistently -- it's got such a great 'Don't mess with me, I'm too cool for you' vibe. a-hard-days-night-george-4

Hi guys,

Just a quick one. Paul seems to be ad-libbing at the end of Fixing A Hole , but I can't make out what he's saying for the life of me.

It's just as the song is about to fade out completely, I hear something along the lines of: "Hey, hey, no matter where (I'd go)...!"

But that's unlike any of the lyrics in the song, which makes me doubt that what I'm hearing is what the boys heard Paul sing. And what I'm hearing as "no matter" might just as well be "wherever". 

What do you guys hear there? It's another one of the beautiful impromptu moments on this fantastic record for sure.

Robert

I wish they had sorted this on the Peppers rerelease but no, it's still cryptic. I lean towards @sir walter raleigh 's interpretation, to me it sounds like a Hey! on the left side, and a Hey! Baby we will go! on the right. I pulled out the mogg but it's even less helpful: the solo vocal is mixed together with the backing vocals and the entire track is brutally faded out before the ad lib. 

Finally, if we go to the deluxe rerelease, there is a Take 1 version of Fixing A Hole and I think we've found the origin of the ad lib, it's at about 2:34 into a very loose ending which is the same place as the final mix. This is as clear as it will ever get unless we get the isolated vocal, and I base my interpretation on it. I find it a bit odd that they did a Take 3 (which sounds rather messy) if Take 1 seems to be the basis for the final mix. And Take 1 raises questions because at it's end the track seems to have been overwritten by the lead before another take (that's what it sounds like to me), and clearly it's not the basis of the final mix, there are differences in the performance. So was the vocal track lifted for the final mix?

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.

Another PID clue:  I can "clearly" hear Paul saying, "I'm Faul and Paul is dead and gone" paul-mccartney-facepalm_gifblue-meanie

I've really grown to love that song, lately. First of all the music is brilliant, especially the bass line, the guitar solo, and the way the harmony vocals create a groove with their 'dip, dip'. But I also really dig the way the lines of the lyrics intertwine with one another like in the following example 

And it really doesn't matter if
I'm wrong I'm right
Where I belong I'm right
Where I belong

Which plays with the lines 'where I belong I'm right' and 'I'm right where I belong'. Ingenius!  

With the 2017 re-issue, it's like I'm hearing the song for the first time.  The "dip dip" vocals I've never noticed until now.  I's like they were buried in the mix until now.  The lyrics intertwining for some reason I've never noticed before until the 2017 re-issue.  Amazing song.
