Yeah. When i first got the album this is one of the tracks that really hooked me on the album and had me going back over and over and over. John's vocal is wonderful being filled with menace; i do love those songs.

My favorite on BBC disc 1 - notice how John sings "off my Baa-aaaa-by". I love it.

I only wish it was a bit louder or better quality.

It's a truly wonderful song, I just love it. Like StrawberryWalrus, I also love the way John sings the "Baa-aaaa-by", those are some great vocals.

It's a song that I can listen to for hours on loop (which I actually have done).

It's another one which benefits from the "poor" quality audio, I like how it sounds as though it's coming from one of them old Handheld Transistor AM Radios, it makes for an authentic listening experience like you've been teleported back to the very day that it was broadcast...:-)

I don't mind if you lend my clothes
Jewellery and such

Do guys really borrow each others clothes and jewellery?

I think it makes more sense for a woman to sing those lines, and indeed, I see on Joe's blog post that the song was originally recorded by Little Eva.

I just can't see Ringo lending one of his rings to anyone.

P.S. it seems like the word should be borrow instead of lend in that line. The way it is written, it sounds like the second girl is lending the first girl's stuff to someone else. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6 If you put that into the context of the guy instead of closthes and jewels it kind of makes it sound like girl 2 is pimping out the first girl's guy. Does anyone know why it is lend?

Lend fits into the gap whereas borrow doesn't resulting in jarring the line. There isn't much difference in my head in the meanings between the two.

Interestingly a different line is stated in some online lyric sites such as here; "I don't mind if you lend my clothes, But you will be in touch". Where they get that from who knows.

Guys will borrow shirts, ties, jackets and such - tho in my experience more out of necessity such as not having to spend money on an item of clothing for one occasion. If it means i dont have to go clothes shopping then great.
