Everytime I hear 'Something' I think he's saying 'don't wanna leave her now, you know I believe in hell' but all the lyric websites that I have been on say that he says ' (..) and how'. '(...) in hell' makes more sense to me, as well. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I never understood how that is supposed to make sense. How what?

Isnt it "dont' want to leave her now, you know i believe her now"?

No, "you know I believe and how" is correct.

It's "You know I believe in how", as in he knows everything will work out.

Nah, I'm pretty sure it's "and how".

It's not. It neither makes sense (in no way does that make grammatical or common sense), there's no "D" sound which would be needed for your version, and it has a clear "I". "And how" is nonsensical.

I guess George doesn't care about having perfect grammar.

Yeah, I was pretty sure that it's ''and how''. Still doesn't make sense though. Oh well.

My best friend has finally started to show interest in The Beatles in the past couple of weeks and asked me to borrow all of my CDs so she could import them to her iTunes account. I brought them to her last night and woke up to her working on her laptop (a rare occasion) and asked her what she was doing. She smirked as she told me she was listening to The Beatles, knowing it would absurdly fill me with intense happiness to know that my best friend--whose Bible-thumpin' father has an intense hatred of John Lennon--was at long last sharing in my love for those four lads from Liverpool. We had ourselves a day-long marathon as we listened to every album, in order, together. When we got to Revolver, she thought the line that says "Now, my advice for those who die: declare the pennies on your eyes" said "Declare the panties on your eyes"; and, being the Beatles Bibler I am, I immediately made a mental note to share it with you guys. ahdn_george_08

It makes perfect sense! "And how!" emphasizes the extent to which he believes he doesn't want to leave her now.

That being said, I'm not sure about the actual line either anymore! I've always heard "you know i believe, and how" but I've never listened closely.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Oh yeah! It's clear to me now. And I'm starting to doubt myself too. I guess this could be one of those things that we might never know..

I always thought it was "you know I believe in how", then I checked some internet lyrics which said it was "you know I believe her now", but listening it know I'm pretty sure it's "you know I believe and how" a-hard-days-night-john-7

It's " - and how" (as printed in the Hal-Leonard "The Beatles' Complete Scores")

 

I prefer an alternate interpretation whereby Harrison sings "I believe in Howe" - Howe being the British Commander-in-Chief during the American War of Independence, thus revealing Harrison's true feelings about American independence. (You heard it here first.)

I always used to chuckle pretending it was "Anne How", as if that's the name of the girl he's talking about. Trying to be persuasive, holding her by both her hands and imploring her "You know I believe, Anne Howe!"

However it was always "-and how" to me, although it's not a particularly obvious rhyme in the way it's phrased.

Hey it's a cool coincidence that the name "Howe" is mentioned, since I always thought the unique guitar tone on "Starship Trooper" (by Yes) was VERY similar to that of "Something", released the previous year. And the guitarist in question is Steve Howe! So maybe that's the Howe he believes in.

Haha! I remember first listening to that song, and thinking he said, "Well, my heart went bloom..."
I was so confused on what that meant! Thank God for Google, or we would all still be VERY confused!
