The song was "We wanna be your dogs". It was rejected because all The Beatles had pets at that time. Plus the song was really really really really bad.

Why did The Beatless refuse to sign for Decca?

Magic Alex had been hired to design a new state of the art studio for Decca in 63. The Beatles hated it.

Actually, it was Mickey Mantle who struck out Paul. Not that it was much of a challenge.

Ringo Rottweiler was a anthropomorphised cartoon dog who sported a familiar-looking 1) hairstyle, 2) nose, 3) Liverpudlian accent; and 4) assortment of splendid rings; and who stumbled his way upon (and stumblingly solved) mysteries weekly on ABC-TV for 26 episodes in 1968, evading goofy criminals and goofier policemen all along the way, hilarity usually ensuing. Additionally, the finale of every episode presented "Rotty" addressing his audience, playing his drums while singing an original bubblegum-rock song that taught the kids a valuable life lesson, such as maintaining personal hygiene, staying away from drugs, and treating people of all races with equal respect. Ringo Starr himself provided the character's speech and singing voice throughout the series' entire run, which was abruptly canceled as a result of Ringo's temporary loss of voice (after yelling about his blisters in studio.)

Why was Paul's July 1965 goatee ultimately so short-lived?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Folk wanted a living animal sacrifice as recompense for the Bigger than Jesus comments, misheard that Paul had a goat and, well, some folk were able to laugh about it a few years later but not many. 

 

Why didn't Ringo travel for the first handful of dates of the 1964 World Tour?

There is a deleted scene where Ringo traps himself in the bus, drives into a shark infested tank in a straightjacket, and escapes in 10 minutes, hence “Magical Mystery Tour
