I couldn’t find one. Could it have been in another general thread, perhaps?

Maybe a discussion when Hey Jude ‘s “fookin’ hell” came up led to a discussion about if it was the only instance? A Hey Jude  thread?

The closest I can find is this one post from AG in 2015. Timothy made a post about it in 2018 but that’s further away from 2016…

No results in the baker’s dozen thread.

Okay, I decided to search the forum for “Big Boys Bickering” because I remember that being mentioned in the thread, and this is what I found.  I suppose it is a bit different.

Honeslty speaking, I wished we could’ve had a demo of “Sexy Sadie ” with the original lyrics. I’m not a big fan of swearing, but I think even I’d crack up just a litle bit hearing John swearing and cussing at Yogi. George just had to be a killjoy and sweeten the lyrics.

We do a little trolling

John singing “who the f**k you think you are. Oh, you c**t” is outstanding to hear.

George actually successfully influenced John to change the lyrics?

And here’s some that are debatable:

“Sie Leibt DICK”, Sie Liebt Dich (Spelled dich but The Beatles intentionally sung it as dick)

..
  

I got 2 theories on that:

1. The Beatles weren’t intentionally trying to sneak “dick” in, it was just because that part of the song they have to sing the word fast in between other words, maybe they thought it would sound worse if they pronounced it properly. Listening to the song again, I notice they DO pronounce “dich” properly later in the song when they sing —

Du glaubst sie liebt nur mich
Gestern had ich sie gesehen
Sie denkt ja nur an dich

and also

Entschuldige dich bei ihr

2. They were trying to sneak “dick” in and the reason they pronounced “dich” correctly later (see above) was to signal the audience “see? we know how to pronounce it correctly, but we’re avoiding doing that on purpose in the other parts just so we can say dick 17 times!

Doesn’t the song Bad Boy have some bad language?

 

Well he worries his teacher ’til at night she’s ready to poop

The lack of swearing, or very limited instances of it, is another reason why the Beatles music lives so long IMO. If something has obviously crude language it’s just not going to be mainstream, period. Thus limiting its appeal across demographics and locations – eg. sporting events, etc.

I like the Larry Williams version of Bad Boy better than the Beatles and Larry sings the word “poop” better lol
