I saw someone mention this idea for a thread a couple weeks ago, collecting Beatles lyrical goofs from the different online lyrics site. I was doing some recording the other night and needed the words for "And Your Bird Can Sing " (something about being at the microphone always causes me to forget the right order of lyrics), and came across this:

You tell me that you've heard every sound there is
And your bird can swim
But you can't hear me, you can't hear me

Found at: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics.....nsing.html

Now that's one talented bird ...

Love me while you can
Or I'll get a plan

I mean, I always had trouble with the lyrics to Love You To (when I listened to them at all), but really? It seems plain to me that it's 'Before I'm a dead old man'. Maybe they think it's too depressing, considering that George now is one... ahdn_george_01

Okay, so Handle With Care isn't a Beatles song, but it's got George in it so it counts... maybe? Anyway, this is too good not to share. Link

I looked up the chords and they have the line 'I've been fobbed off and I've been fooled' as 'I've been f---d up'. Whaaat??!!?!!!?!?!!! How could you hear that?! In the video, you can see he's lip-synching 'I've been fobbed off' quite plainly.

It's connecting fine for me, @meanmistermustard, whereas it wasn't before.

Are you on the latest version of the page? I had to refresh the page before her replacement link worked.

However, @Beatlebug, the lyric only gets one word wrong. If you look just above the first chords it says it's:

HANDLE WITH CARE by Jenny Lewis (originally done by The Travelling Wilburys)

Here is the Jenny Lewis cover of the song. She doesn't sing "f*cked up", but she does sing "f*cked off":

Two things, well three on the above cover. 

1. Why change the lyric to include a swear word when it makes less sense and sounds stupid and pointless? Does swearing make you more cool and happening to the teen market?

2. Why the drum track which is totally out of place?

3. How on earth did they make it such a dull track? The vocals are so bland they make it so utterly boring a listen and the whole just sounds so plastic and empty. 

I dont think the original is an outstanding track but at least its got energy and the vocals have feeling and soul; you can hear the relief in George when he sings and Roy as well when he's at the mic. The cover has none of that, its just meh. It sounds like they were told "cover this track" and they did but wanted it over as quickly as possible.

Maybe thats four. Its certainly off-topic.

This isn't a lyric, but credits for Taxman  found here.

We know the credits; Writer: George Harrison ; Copyright: Sony/ATV Tunes LLC.

Well, look at what's offered here, and can anyone explain why?

God what a depressing cover, they sound like they have a gun to the back of their heads and told "SING IT OR DIE!".

I listened to exactly fifty-seven seconds and I was done. Going to listen to the original to cleanse my brain. *zzzzzz*
