She Said, She Said

(John Lennon – John Lennon and Paul McCartney)

Albums in which the song is present

   1966 - Revolver

JOHN 1968: 'That was pure.
You see, when I wrote that I had the 'She said she said,' but it was just meaning nothing.
It was just vaguely to do with someone who had said something like he knew what it was like to be dead, and then it was just a sound.
And then I wanted a middle-eight.
The beginning had been around for days and days and so I wrote the first thing that came into my head and it was 'When I was a boy,' in a different beat, but it was real because it just happened.'

JOHN 1980: 'That's mine.
It's an interesting track.
The guitars are great on it.
That was written after an acid trip in L.A. during a break in the Beatles tour where we were having fun with the Byrds and lots of girls.
Peter Fonda came in when we were on acid and he kept coming up to me and sitting next to me and whispering, 'I know what it's like to be dead.' He was describing an acid trip he'd been on.
We didn't 'want' to hear about that.
We were on an acid trip and the sun was shining and the girls were dancing, and the whole thing was beautiful and Sixties, and this guy – who I really didn't know – he hadn't made 'Easy Rider' or anything… kept coming over, wearing shades, saying, 'I know what it's like to be dead,' and we kept leaving him because he was so boring! And I used it for the song, but I changed it to 'she' instead of 'he.'
It was scary… I don't want to know what it's like to be dead!'

She said, "I know what it's like to be dead.
I know what it is to be sad."
And she's making me feel like I've never been born

I said, "Who put all those things in your head?
Things that make me feel that I'm mad.
And you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said, "You don't understand what I said."
I said, "No, no, no, you're wrong.
When I was a boy everything was right,
Everything was right."

I said, "Even though you know what you know,
I know that I'm ready to leave
'Cause you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said, "You don't understand what I said."
I said, "No, no, no, you're wrong.
When I was a boy everything was right,
Everything was right."

I said, "Even though you know what you know,
I know that I'm ready to leave
'Cause you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said, "I know what it's like to be dead.
I know what it is to be sad.
I know what it's like to be dead..."
