That’s an odd explanation on two accounts:  I’ve italicized other entries and no problems. 2) did the copy-paste process automatically insert “etc.”? lol

Now today I find, you have changed your mind

2. I Saw Her Standing There (One, Two, Three, Fahhhh)

3. One After 909

4. You Are Here (“Nine!” — or if someone disputes John & Yoko are speaking that at the beginning, later he sings “Three thousand miles over the ocean”)

5. All Together Now (1,2,3,4 can I have a little more, 5,6,7,8,9,10 I love you)

6. Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite (The band begins at ten to six)

8. Fine Line (A one, two)

9. Across The Universe (a million)

10. Kansas City (it’s just a ‘one two three four / five six seven eight nine’)

11. You Never Give Me Your Money (“1 2 3 4 5 6 7, all good children go to heaven…”)

12. Twenty Flight Rock

Sea Belt, please see below:

That’s not correct, SB. There are other instances regarding your entries on the preceding pages of the thread, but you may not have noticed them. For example:
https://www.beatlesbible.com/forum/yesterday-and-today/forum-games/the-bakers-dozen/page-362/#p379170
https://www.beatlesbible.com/forum/yesterday-and-today/forum-games/the-bakers-dozen/page-368/#p380012

This is an unusual thread because it relies on copy/paste to a considerable extent, and there are many examples among these pages of italics/bold formatting being lost. By all means, use italics/bold if you wish, but please be aware that the formatting might not last to the end of that baker’s dozen.

No, of course not; didn’t you notice that the previous post contained this?

That was me, Sea Belt – I was renumbering yours from 10 to 11 and lazily only copied the first half (1234567) without italicizing. I didn’t think it was a big deal, sorry.

Hurrah! We’ve almost built a whole house. We have a floor, a door, 2 windows, stairs, 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms, a parlor, a playroom, a fireplace, and a mantel. What else do we need before the lads can move in?

Ok, I think we have almost built a house. We have a floors, doors, windows, stairs, kitchens, bathrooms, parlors, playrooms, fireplaces, mantels, ceilings, and walls. The lads are getting anxious to move in, but were hoping for some closets. They have a lot of clothes (you know, 4 of everything).

Would a matchbox hold their clothes?

Does a song from Ringo’s Scouse the Mouse record count? Someone else sings lead vocal on the song. If we can use it, we can add the closet.

@Sea Belt, since we can use Matchbox as 12, your attic would be 13. Do you have a topic in mind for the next round?
