The Beatles', "Paperback Writer"
The Lyrics:
It's a thousand pages, give or take a few, I'll be writing more in a week or two.
(simultaneously) Fera Jacque, Fera Jacque
I can make it longer if you like the style, I can change it round and I want to be a paperback writer,
(simultaneously) Fera Jacque, Fera Jacque
If you really like it you can have the rights, It could make a million for you overnight.
(simultaneoulsy) Fera Jacque, Fera Jacque
If you must return it, you can send it here But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer,
(simultaneoulsy) Fera Jacque, Fera Jacque
The Beatles were many times thought to include hidden messages or lyrics in their tunes, but the only time that it can be varified that they did this was in their 1966's #1 hit smash song, "Paperback Writer". Written up above is the third and fourth verse of "Paperback Writer" using the vocals of Paul McCartney, while sang under Paul's vocals, is John Lennon and George Harrison vocalizing part of an internationally recognized French children's song, "Fera Jacque". You need to listen very closely to hear the Beatles do this, and it was done deliberately, but very tongue-in-cheek, during a time when so many people were trying to locate hidden messages and lyrics in rock/pop songs.
