My all-time favorite Beatles song !!!!

The growing maturity of the Beatles shines through on this one, the sitar certainly helps. Another gem from the greatest band there ever was and ever will be!

There are no drums on the song, the tamborine keeps rhythm.

My aunt went to see the Beatles when they first came to America. I think that was the only time they toured. She saved her ticket stub. You won't believe this but the price of the ticket was $5.99 and she had good seats. She said you couldn't hear the Beatles because of all the screaming.

Problems with the comment below this.. 1) I wasn't referring to "Katie"'s comment 2) it was sarcastic 3) I know someone who has comments that make even less sense...
Report as inappropriate
I've got two problems with that last comment...'c o o l story man'...2nd of all...I don't think 'Katie's a 'man'...4th of all...the story...aaaa h . . . ( s o r r y Katie) wasn't really that 'cool'...and what the heck does 'swines' & 'chin chins' got to do with anything??? otherwise... I almost agree (almost) with everything else you said...said not to well of course...Jay

No, he burned her house down because she wouldn't let him sleep in the same bed as her. He slept in the bathtub, and when he woke up and she was already gone, he got mad and burned her house down and even commented on how well it burns ("So, I lit a fire, isn't it good, Norwegian wood?")

Norwegian wood is cheap. But this song is good quality!

I hear "I lit a fire" as in he had a cigarette.

He lit a fire. Like in a fireplace. A stove. Probably to prepare some breakfast.

The way I hear the end, I believe he litterally sets her room on fire as revenge for her leaving him in the middle of the night... But it was he who first left the bed to sleep in the bath, just because she needed to get up for work early. I think his sleeping in the bathtub was overreacting a bit. Also, the torching her room because she did state she would be leaving early for work. There's something I'm missing here.

For some reason, this song makes me think of a nice big fire with big peices of hardwood crackeling away.

Lennon was a master craftsman, This is a great example, simple yet moving. Great song by Fab four.

I never understood why he chooses to sleep in her bathtub...

Pure pop genius regardless of the true meaning. One of my favorites from the Fab 4.

Simply put, one of the greatest songs of the 20th Century. The world awoke upon hearing this tune.

There is a very cool re-make of this tune by the Kingston Trio on "Children of the Morning"!
