This isn’t a Beatles song, but I can’t stop mishearing in George’s When We Was Fab the line “The microscopes that magnified the tears, started warts and all” as “The microscopes that magnified the tears, started once and all”. Even reading the lyrics and listening to the song, it still wont “Come Together ” in my braina-hard-days-night-george-10

Despite what everyone else on the planet says i’m still convinced that George sings “you know I believe her now, you know I believe her now” in ‘Something ‘.

For years I thought that John and Paul sing “well if you ever wonder who the loneliest creature in the world can be; well the ugly duckling waves a black sheep at me” in ‘So How Come (No One Loves Me)’ as if the ugly duck was mocking the singer. I actually prefer that to “”well if you ever wonder who the loneliest creatures in the world can be; the ugly ducking, a little black sheep and me”. No i have no idea how a duck could wave a sheep.

During ‘Lend Me Your Comb’ i still hear Paul sing “sure to fuck, its a getting late” instead of “sugarbug, its a getting late” – if he’s not he’s doing his damned hardest to make it sound like it.

Hey, it’s not all you– George has terrible singing pronunciation. I thought it was ‘studied forks and knives’ for a long time, referencing Piggies

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

A lot of quacking to get the sheep into position then grip with beak, a whizz around the head and let go! Satisfied quacks as sheep recedes into the distance BAAAAaaaaa *plonk* (this only counts as a nap, not a proper sleep, insomniacs).

Not a Beatles song either but Paul wrote it: I used to mishear Cilla Black’s hit Step Inside Love chorus as “take off your clothes and come inside” and not “take off your coat and come inside”. I reckon my version would have been the original.

I think this might be a common one, I’ve heard other people cite hearing it that way, but this one from A Day In The Life :

Correct: And nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords

Incorrect: And nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Paul

Yes, I heard it that way myself many moons ago.

Another one I’d gotten wrong when I was a kid, from For No One :

Correct: Your day breaks, your mind aches…

Incorrect: Good day breaks, in my nakes…

I guess I thought the protagonist of the song (Paul?) had slept in the nude or something. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6ahdn_ringo_09

Also I thought Daily Mail was Daily Mill for a long time. I’m sure that there are others but that comes to mine mind the most.

What do you mean where did I get that information from? I just posted a picture of a hippo squirrel. Are you really questioning their existence?

 

I can never understand that one part in I’ve Got A Feeling where Paul starts yelling. I always try so hard to hear words but I just can’t.
