“She Said She Said” (so good they named it twice) has been the source of a misunderstanding. The misunderstanding is that this song is about drugs or came about because of the taking of drugs in the 60’s.

Nothing could be further fromthe truth.

“She Said” is a simple reporting of a discussion between Lennon and his Aunt Mimi probably around 1958/9. Typical of circular conversations between parents/guardians and their children.

John did not want to be living with his elder, stricter aunt and wanted to be back with his mother. They Had many many arguments that took the same form.

It could be written out as short play.

Place: Kitchen of 251 Menlove Avenue, the home of George and Mimi Smith, where Lennon lived for most of his childhood and adolescence.

Mimi (in frustration): "I know what it’s like to be dead. I know what it is to be sad. You’re making me feel like I’ve never been born
Lennon (to himself): “She’s making ME feel like I’ve never been born.”

Lennon "Who put all those things in your head? Things that make me feel that I’m mad. You’re making ME feel like I’ve never been born."

Mimi: "You don’t understand what I said"
Lennon: "No, no, no, you’re wrong"
(Looks at a picture of his mother) “When I was a boy everything was right”

(Mimi looks away)

Lennon: "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."

Young Lennon slams door and leave house.

Curtain closes…

This was the final track recorded during the Revolver sessions, and was hastily added when the album line-up was found to be a song short. It took nine hours to rehearse and record the entire song, complete with overdubs. After the recording of the song The Beatles’ producer George Martin is reported to have said: "All right, boys, I’m just going for a lie-down."

Harrison said he helped Lennon construct the song from two separate "bits".

McCartney does not appear on the track; the bass is played by Harrison.

McCartney said, "I’m not sure but I think it was one of the only Beatle records I never played on. I think we had a barney or something and I said, ‘Oh, fuck you!,’ and they said, ‘Well, we’ll do it.’”

The song is often noted for Ringo Starr’s "circular" patterns and other contributions: Starr himself has expressed particular pride in his performances during this era.

She has been invited to return to Europe every year for the past 10 years, primarily in Austria, Italy, France, Switzerland and Germany as a solo artist.

She is most happy wah-wah ing her way out of any solo, any time…
