Great song. I'm not in love with the sitar in it but it's still great.

I think this was about Eppy~ (please no hate guys, I'm just saying.)
This song comforts me
sometimes a song is just a song you're supposed to put your owyn interpretati o n of the song in your head as you listen to the lyric; just enjoy the head vision take a triphe in head vision
No.
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...
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
Cool story man tell it again... Better than the classics, sorry, three little swines I never cared about your chinny chin chins..
Hey pandora, it's James Paul McCartney not the other way round!
no...no...ye s the guy was sleeping in the bathtub, but it was the 'tub' that was made of wood...and the moron just had to light up a joint...mell o w e d out too much...fell asleep and burned down the tub and house...and his large stash was burnt too...as he stood outside smelling the burning embers he sang...'ah isn't it good...Norwe g i a n wood'...the firemen agreed...the y all got
high and lived happily ever after...YaYa J a y

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!
Ome of my favorites by The Beatles!
kennybavis Uh, dude, they are rock legends. Of course they are good.
Hey these guys are pretty good
I hear "I lit a fire" as in he had a cigarette.
tenniswheelz
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.
Rubber Soul mite just be the Beatles best album
Oh John! How we all miss ya!
sound like a one night stand in Norway, John.
I really don't get this song but I guess they did write kind of odd songs... love the Beatles though!!!
For some reason, this song makes me think of a nice big fire with big peices of hardwood crackeling away.
Love this song. George is a master at playing the sitar.
A favorite for nearly forty years !!!!
First time I heard a sitar.
I'm not the only one who talked until 2 and ended up on my way........
Then again it was the sixties pre Pill.
Does it seem like he lit her house in fire in the end
one of the best bands out there
If I strum E and E minor, would you play the rest? The best an ol drummer can do....
k9srockon
:D I love this... I really want to earn to play this on the piano
This song is one example of the difference between The Beatles and The Stones.
Great song period!!!!!
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.
glorious tasty little treat.
There is a very cool re-make of this tune by the Kingston Trio on "Children of the Morning"!
tullpony79
knowing she would...
a work of art...2 minutes long.
probably my most favoritest Beatles song ever, love it every time i hear it, never get tired of it and its been over 40 years now!!! (sigh also)
badchad7971
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS SONG!!!
Love this song.... sigh...
i get norwegian wood sometimes too.
favorite factoid about this song: Bob Dylan did a parody of it on Blonde on Blonde called '4th Time Around' that ends with the lines "I never asked for your crutch/So don't ask for mine"
This was about the affair Lennon was having , but couldn't bring himself to tell Cynthia
pure lennon
