Watching the Ed Sullivan performance of this song, I can see how Bob Dylan may have misheard the chorus. I've long wondered how it's possible he confused it, listening to the quite lucid 'I can't hide's on the record, but I imagine it's more likely he didn't really listen to the song much, just happened to hear it once or twice on the radio or the television. 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

Sometimes I can hear "I get high" when I listen to it. It's kind of like how we hear "everybody smoke pot" instead of "everybody's got one."

I think it is far easier to mishear 'I get high" than most of the 'Paul Is Dead' lyrics that are said to exist. How anyone can hear "House of Lords" as "House of Paul" in 'A Day In The Life ' is beyond my understanding.

That always sounds like "house of law" to me, even though I know what it is.

Yeah, it sounds more like "House of Paul" than "House of Lords".

How did they manage to have their guitars sound like a muted organ? Love the sound and always wondered about that. They never used that again in another recording.
