I hear that too!

That's interesting! I never knew what that meant either. I had never heard of it in the North and I'm in Seattle and no one here has ever heard of it... Also no one I talk to in New Zealand have ever heard of it. Maybe safe to say it's a Liverpool thing?

Again, not a misheard lyric, but a misunderstood one.

"You and me burning matches, lifting latches."

I had always assumed that "lifting latches" meant that they were trying to see if doors were accidentally left open (you know, to find some shelter)... but I recently found out it's Scouse slang. Here's the definition.

Does it have the same meaning all over the UK? Did any Yank or Canadian know that that is what it meant? a-hard-days-night-paul-10

 

This is a great thread! For a lot of them I have found myself hearing the same thing. heart

1.)Not when she hurts me and says she loves me so
2.)Was I to blame for being a square
3.)In the time when I was born
4.)Well she was just seventeen if you know what I mean
5.)I want her everywhere and if she's beside me I know I'll remember this
6.)Mr.H will demonstrate ten somersaults he'll undertake

I had never known if Paul sang Sont Les Mots or Sont des mots in Michelle. I now realize it was the ladder.

At the end of the talking part of "Yellow Submarine" (just before the final verse), it sounds like they're saying 'Mash potato! Mash potato!' I'm not sure what they're actually saying there. Any ideas?

Here are some mishearing by me and some others by Paul is Dead theorists:

Sie Liebt Dich - "She lick dick"

Yellow Submarine, "In the town where I was born..." - "In the time when I was born..."

All You Need Is Love (at the end of the song), "Yesterday" - "Yes he's dead" | and, "She Loves You..." - "We Loved You..."

While My Guitar Gently Weeps, backing vocals saying "Oh!, Oh!, Oh! ..." | "Paul!, Paul!, Paul! ..."

A Day In The Life, "About a lucky man who made it great" - "About a lucky man who made the grade"

 

... and there are many others I can't remember at the moment right now. apple01

Two months ago, I got a crate of over 200 vinyl records from my dad (he was a DJ during the 80's) and The Red Album was included. So I decided to play it on my turntable and when it got to the chorus of Day Tripper my sister (Beatles hater) walked by my room then walked back to my room and asked me "Did he just say, 'He was a gay stripper. '? "

XD
Most common misheard lyric in all Beatles songs xD

Good Dog Nigel. Arf, Arf, he goes, a merry sight. Our little hairy friend. Arf, Arf, upon the lampost bright, arfing around the bend. Nice dog! Goo boy, waggie tail and beg. Clever Nigel, jump for joy
Because we're putting you to sleep at three of the clock, Nigel.

This isn't Beatles, but I always mishear the line "like a picture from hell" in Back On the Chain Gang by the Pretenders to be "like a pigeon from hell." a-hard-days-night-george-10

Also, I used to hear "making me feel like I've never been born" as "like I've never been wrong" in She Said She Said. The alternate lyrics make absolutely no sense contextually though.

"Now and then, though, someone does begin to grow differently. Instead of down, his feet grow up toward the sky. But we do our best to discourage awkward things like that."

"What happens to them?" insisted Milo.

"Oddly enough, they often grow ten times the size of everyone else," said Alec thoughtfully, "and I’ve heard that they walk among the stars."

Actually it's Ringo saying "Cut the cable, drop the cable"

 

You can see Ringo talking about it here (about 20 seconds in)(WHY AM I TERRIBLE AT EMBEDDING THINGS?!?)

When first hearing Do You Want To Know A Secret? i thought the do da do backing vocals were J & P singing "do not look", and for a while thought Paperback Writer was Paperbag Writer (at aged 9 i had never heard of a paperback, it was just a book, whereas when you bought sweets they came in a paperbag - no it makes no sense when listened in context).

"I told you everything I could about me, Told you everything I could" ('Before Believing' - Emmylou Harris) 

"Don't make your love suffer insecurities; Trade the baggage of "self" to set another one free" ('Paper Skin' - Kendall Payne)

Thanks for that- it makes more sense than 'mash potato'! Tee hee.

Actually, according to The Beatles rock band, in the fade out of AYNIL Paul does say "Loved you yeah, yeah, yeah. She loves you yeah, yeah, yeah".
