"Long Tall Sally, she's built for speed, she's got everything that Arkansas needs ... "

Johnny Cash "Ring Of Fire:"

"The taste of love is sweet ... when hearts like cowards meet ... "

I also thought that the Contours were singing "first I look at the PEARLS." It made sense. Every popular sixth grade girl wore a string of costume jewelry pearls, and they seemed to define who was worth chatting up.

From "Penny Lane;"

"And the banker never wears a mask, in the pouring rain . . . " (The correct lyric is "mac," short for "mackinaw," the UK term for a light-weight raincoat.)

Two Herman's Hermits tracks:

(Myself) A Must To Avoid-
A Mess To Avoid.

(My daughter, when younger)-
No Milk Today.
"A terraced house in the mean street, back if town"
A terrorist house.....
(Easy mistake, US English calls it a duplex, and it really does sound like "terrorist").

"Penny Lane" again:

"A pretty miss is selling poppies from a tray ... " (The correct lyric is "pretty nurse." Paul's mum, Mother Mary, was a nurse.)
