Remembering lyrics is usually never a problem for me, and for the most part, I can sing along to virtually any Beatles song. However, there are a few that I can never seem to get right no matter how many times I hear them...

 

Hey Bulldog

The verses are pretty much the same, with modification. Although I like the song very much, the lyrics are just hard for me to get down.

 

Cry Baby Cry

This song is more of a story/nursery rhyme and frustrates me that I can never get the lyrics right for some reason.

 

Dig A Pony

I think my problem with this one is the same with Hey Bulldog . The verses are all very similar, and I usually get them in the wrong order or combine lines from 2 different verses.

 

Those are the three that always give me problems, but I want to know, are there any Beatles lyrics that you can never seem to get right? Which ones give you the most trouble?

Oh man, so true! Hey Bulldog gives me nightmares every time. 

Twist And Shout is another that I can never get right.

No matter how many times I listen to "Eleonor Rigby" I can never memorize past the first verse. It's mcfrickin' frustrating ahdn_paul_01

I surprisingly have no trouble with "Cry Baby Cry ," I just fall right into the rhythm of it when I start singing.

I don’t usually have much trouble memorizing lyrics, but I do have trouble a) hearing the words right (what are they SAYING?!?!?!?) and b) remembering the order of the verses.

@JW OBoogie, based on your signature, looks like you had better add Tomorrow Never Knows to your list! ahdn_john_08_gif
