Is it worth pointing out that a "counting house" is not a room in a house, but rather a business establishment?

I did considered that. But since no one mentioned that game doesn't refer to a room in the quoted sense, I figured I was good.  Plus, I never got the sense that Yoko actually left the Dakota to "count."

But Studio One (the Lennon's office at the Dakota) was in one of the other apartments they owned in the building, and was not a part of the apartment they called home. Also, John used "Counting house" as a metaphor for Studio One and wasn't referring to it as a room in a house.

Cleanup Time also mentions a kitchen, so why don't we just do this:

I have no problem with kitchen making the list twice, I just felt counting house was pushing the definition of a room in a house a little too far. While some of a tricky list aren't used in the context of a room in a house in the songs they feature, they can be rooms in a house, but I couldn't see that with counting house, which is purely a business premises.
