And moving this here because I ended up posting it on the completely wrong topic by accident. Never has the facePaulm emoji been more apt. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

What I intended to post here…

In Lovely Rita , when it goes “… When it gets dark I tow your heart away…

” I used to hear “… When we got stucked I told your heart to wait…”  

It didn’t make a lot of sense, but it was Beatles, so why not … 😀

I believed for many years that the lyrics in Taxman go:

If you drive a car…

–I’ll tax the street.

If you drive too sexy…

–I’ll tax the seat.

Can’t f***ing shout now.. towards the end of Shout.

It’s supposed to be “Jump up and shout now,” but I always hear John sing it as mentioned above a-hard-days-night-paul-3

Don’t be surprised if John was. I’m convinced Paul sings “sure to fuck its a-getting late” instead of “but sugarbug its a-getting late” in ‘Lend Me Your Comb’.

Cheeky cheeky ahdn_george_06

It surely doesn’t sound like “Jump up and shout now” the first 3 times he sings it…

never heard that myself, but i could never figure out how “monday morning play piano song” was relevant in Michelle until i read the actual lyrics in a song book

I also heard “the house of caaaaards” instead of he House of Lords in A Day In The Life

I made a similar mistake with George’s ‘Poor Little Girl’s, which has a line about ‘poor horny boy’– I thought it was honey boy for a long time.

Another common mishearing of that is “Sunday monkey won’t play piano song, play piano song…”

Being a dumb child when I first heard many Beatles songs, I misheard many of the lyrics.  So I thought it’d be fun to share some with you all.

I heard “Hey Bungalow Bill” as “Hey Buffalo Bill” (this one sorta makes sense cause Buffalo Bill was a real guy)

I heard “only waiting for this moment to arise” as “only waiting for this moment to arrive”

And the worst of all:

I heard “Jai guru deva ohm” as “Jackaroo day of love”a-hard-days-night-paul-4

I used to think the chorus of Ob La Di Ob La Da was ‘Honey, life goes on’ instead of ‘How de life goes on.’
